EXTRA TIME
KENYA BROWN - Monday, January 30, 2017
It was a rough outing for Cameron Carter-Vickers and Tottenham in their win over Wycombe Wanderers while Tim Ream and Fulham had no problems against Hull City in the FA Cup.

Tottenham 4-3 Wycombe Wanderers

Son Heung-min's game-winning goal in stoppage time prevented Spurs from going to a replay as they dispatched of Wycombe Wanderers in a thrilling game at White Hart Lane.

Cameron Carter-Vickers started the game for Spurs in what would have been one of the shocks of the FA Cup this season.

Wycombe put the host at a disadvantage early in the game when Paul Hayes's left-footed volley gave them the lead in the 23rd minute.

Hayes would score his second from the penalty spot in the 36th minute to give his team the momentum going into the second half.

However, Spurs would find their way back into the game as they score two goals with the hour mark. Son's deflected shot found the back of the net before Vincent Janssen put away a penalty four minutes later to level the score.

Wycombe would reclaim the lead in the 83rd minute when Garry Thompson headed in Myles Weston's cross.

Spurs leveled the score again in the 89th minute when Dele Alli put away his effort before Son provided the heroics in stoppage time as he scored the game winner.

Tottenham will now face Fulham in the fifth round of the cup on February 17.

Fulham 4-1 Hull City

A dominant performance by the Cottagers saw them earn a big win over Hull City at Craven Cottage to give them a place in the last 16 of the FA Cup.

Tim Ream started the game for Fulham as the knocked off the relegation-threatened Premier League team.

Sone Aluko opened the scoring in the 17th minute when he volleyed in his effort after receiving a headed pass from teammate Toma Kalas.

Hull would level the score minutes into the second half when Evandro headed in a shot past goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic after a cross by Andrew Robertson.

Fulham would then dominate the game for the rest of the second half as they went on to score three unanswered goals.

Chris Martin gave the host the lead again in the 54th minute when Aluko's through ball found Ryan Sessegnon and his cross allowed Martin to easily score.

Sessegnon would get himself on the score board in the 66th minute as again some great passing from Fulham gave him the opportunity in the area and he scored from close range.

Stefan Johansen rounded out the scoring in the 78th minute when fired in his shot from just inside the area.
