Leeds United 0-5 Arsenal

FA Women's Cup Final The New Den Monday, May 1, 2006, 1pm
 

As they both look forward to The FA Women's Cup Final on Monday, Sue Smith and Rachel Yankey put their club rivalry aside to take a coaching session together for children at Danson Primary School yesterday.

Sue Smith helped Leeds United to their first ever Final with victory over Liverpool in the Semi-Final, but they face a difficult task with six-time winners Arsenal the opposition.

Both Smith and Yankey played their part last week as England Women's team edged closer in their pursuit to make the 2007 World Cup in China, and Smith warmed up nicely for her club side with a late goal in the 4-0 win.

England international Sue Smith scored twice to guide Leeds United through to the final of the FA Cup Final after a hard working 2-0 win against Liverpool.

Jayne Ludlow's goal in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of extra time gave Arsenal a 2-1 win.

Former England goalkeeper Pauline Cope kept Arsenal at bay with a string of tremendous saves before she was finally beaten by striker Julie Fleeting in the 70th minute.

Charlton striker Eni Aluko, who scored both goals in their recent Premier League Cup final win against Arsenal, equalised four minutes later to take the game into extra time.

Cope continued her heroics but, in the final move of the match, Ludlow headed the winner from a Rachel Yankey corner.
