For those of you keeping track at home, that’s 20 wins in 21 matches for the Ladies. And the other match was a draw.

Have we mentioned what an awesome season Spurs Ladies are having? We don’t say it enough. Spurs beat West Ham United 3-1 on Wednesday night in the semi-finals of the Boux Avenue Cup to reach the Cup finals... for the third consecutive year.

Spurs got first half goals from Wendy Martin, Nikita Whinnett, and Bianca Baptiste after going down 1-0 in the early goings, and the Ladies cruised through the second half to the win.

This is the third straight year that Spurs have made the finals of the Boux Avenue Cup, formerly known as the Ryman Cup. They took home the trophy last year over Charlton Athletic in a season that saw them make three Cup finals and win two of them. This season Spurs will face the winner of Charlton and Worthing, who play today.

Spurs Ladies, under manager Karen Hills, are in the midst of an incredible season. They have won 20 matches out of a possible 21 in all competitions, their only blip being a 1-1 league draw against C&K Basildon. They are currently top of the third tier FA Premier League Southern Division table with 28 points, two points ahead of Charlton.

Spurs have a real chance of promoting to the FA Women’s Super League 2 this season, but have a long road ahead of them: in order to promote they will need to not only finish top of the league but also beat the champions of the FAPL Northern Division (currently Blackburn Ladies) in an end of the season playoff.

Spurs have two more cup semifinals upcoming: they’ll play Crystal Palace Ladies in the semis of the Capital Women’s Senior Cup on February 17, and will face Cardiff City on March 5 in the FA Women’s Premier League Cup, a competition which Spurs won last season.
