Everton threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 against Spurs at Walton Hall Park on Saturday afternoon.

Everton boss Brian Sorensen made one change from the last-gasp draw against Arsenal; Katherine Kuhl replaced Martina Piemonte, who started on the bench.

16-year-old superstar Isabella Hobson also made the bench after becoming the youngest scorer in Women’s Super League (WSL) history against the Gooners.

Earlier this week the Danish manager was nominated for Aprilโ€™s manager of the month. Ahead of the kick-off, there was a positive energy around Walton Hall Park with a larger crowd than usual. The fixture was the Blues’ final home game of the campaign

Story of the game

Everton went ahead on ten minutes; Clare Wheeler played in Sara Holmgaard, who took a touch before smashing a rasping shot past the helpless Becky Spencer for her first WSL goal of the season.

The Blues had their second on 15 minutes, Justine Vanhaevermaet was the quickest to react to a goal-mouth scramble tapping in from a yard out after the ball rebounded off the post.

Spurs responded with attacking intent, after some cute passing the ball fell to Grace Clinton who shot first-time but Brosnan was on hand to gather with a sharp save down to her bottom right corner.

The Lillywhites continued to ask questions, Clinton’s headed effort drew a smart reaction save out of the Everton ‘keeper who tipped over.

Robert Vilahalm’s side may have started to think it was not their day when Drew Spence latched onto an Everton mistake only to be denied by the woodwork.

However, Tottenham had a reward for their persistence on 45 minutes; the relentless Spence rounded Brosnan and finished into an empty net to set up an intriguing second period.

Once again Spence was involved on 47 minutes; the Jamaican pounced on a stray Everton pass, cutting back to Bethany England who made no mistake.

Everton continued to struggle as Spurs applied constant pressure. The visitors had a flurry of chances between 50 minutes and the hour mark going closest through Jessica Naz who fired inches wide after cutting inside from the left.

The away side should have had a winner ten minutes from time when Martha Thomas had just the ‘keeper to beat but Brosnan spread saving spectacularly.

The draw means Everton remain in ninth position. While Spurs retain sixth place.

Everton visit already-relegated Bristol City on May 18 (3 pm GMT) in their final game of the WSL season.
