Twenty-two games, 22 wins. Arsenal Ladies completed a 'perfect' league campaign on Sunday with a comfortable 6-0 victory over Leeds United at the Arsenal training ground.
Kelly Smith scored a hat-trick to take her tally for the season to 30 and Lianne Sanderson netted once to reach an even more impressive haul of 40. Captain Jayne Ludlow and substitute Gemma Davison were also on target.
As for Leeds? Well, like every other side in the Premier League this season, they simply had no answer to Arsenal's pace, power and finishing.
The 2006/07 campaign will be remembered for the Ladies' unprecedented quadruple - the champions have also lifted the Uefa Cup, League Cup and FA Cup. But this is perhaps their most impressive achievement. Vic Akers' side have maintained their lofty standards for 33 hours of league football, overcoming serious injuries and no little fatigue to make history.
Look out for a week of content celebrating the Ladies' achievements, beginning on Monday, May 28.Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.arsenal.com as the source 20 May 2007
