Lewes too hot for Spurs
 Women's Football News 1 Dec 2010
 
Lewes made it seven wins from eight with a hard fought victory over second placed Tottenham Hotspur at the Dripping Pan.
 
It was the only fixture to go ahead in the South East Combination on a sub-zero Sunday and the Rooks took the opportunity to leapfrog Luton Town into fifth place with goals from Helen Whitton, Clare Trafford and Poppy Ogilvie securing a 3-1 win.
 
Before the game, captain Kelly Newton urged her team to turn this fixture into a high point after a 5-0 thrashing by Spurs in October marked the low point for Lewes. They were out of the blocks quicker this time though and Player of the Match Clare Trafford sped on to Routledge's through ball and was sent flying by the last defender in the box. Whitton stepped up to confidently put away the spot kick for 1-0 on 11 minutes.
 
Spurs began to raise the tempo and created a number of decent half chances that keeper Layla Young and the Lewes defence dealt with well, however five minutes before half time the pressure told and a weak clearance was punished by Spurs who thumped home the equaliser.
 
In the second half, Lewes raised their game another notch and retook the lead with a well worked goal on 65 minutes. Routledge's perfect lay off on the edge of the box was met by the onrushing Trafford who powered a first time shot into the top corner. It was a precarious lead as Spurs went close to drawing level again on several occasions, however the points were secured on 89 minutes as the substitutes combined, Kirstie Spice ignoring her manager's instructions to take it to the corner and instead driving in a low cross that Ogilvie flicked home.
 
Lewes manager Jacquie Agnew hailed it a great team effort and will hope they can carry it into their next fixture against MK Dons.
