|spurs - masters of the south !!|
The last weekend of Masters Cup 2004 qualification and what a weekend !
2,500 people crammed into the Planet Ice Arena, Milton Keynes to witness
some of the greatest legends do battle on the blue baize for their
chance of Masters Cup glory.
Masters, ever the bridesmaid in past Masters event, fielded a strong
side which saw Justin Edinburgh team up with Clive Wilson and Mark
Stimson to shore up the defence. Masters debutant Razor Ruddock joined
Mitchell Thomas and John Polston to control the midfield and with Terry
Gibson and Mark Robson up front, it was the balance of the Spurs Masters
squad that made the difference.
against Southampton in the first game, Spurs raced to a 3 - 1 lead, with
Edinburgh, Stimson and Wilson finding the net before Le Tissier’s
brilliance helped Saints recover to 3 - 3. Unperturbed, Spurs
re-organised and destroyed Portsmouth 5 -1 in their second game, Razor
and Robson with a brace apiece with Polston inflicting the sucker punch
late on. In their final game against arch-rivals Arsenal, Spurs
consolidated, knowing their place in the final was assured - a goal from
Mitchell Thomas levelled the game after Paul Davis had put the Gunners
final against Arsenal was pure theatre. Efficient passing in the
previous game by Spurs had worn out their bitter rivals and it showed,
as Spurs went on wave after wave of attack, springing their defence
numerous times to go in front. Moran netted twice, Ruddock, Robson,
Gibson and Thomas all chipped in with a goal each and if it wasn’t for
Martin Hayes’s consolation at the end, it could have been far worse
than the 6 - 1 mauling it ended up.
it was, Spurs went through and became the first Masters team in history
to register goals from every one of their nine outfield players.
