Arsenal Ladies marched into the last four of the FA Women’s Cup with a 3-1 victory over Leeds Carnegie.

Vic Akers’ side have beaten their Yorkshire opponents in two of the last three Finals and proved too strong once again as they set up a mouth-watering Semi-Final clash with Everton.

Arsenal didn’t have it all their own way as Leeds made life difficult in the early stages, pressuring the Cup holders all over the pitch and denying them time and space.

But Arsenal did manage to break the deadlock after 15 minutes when the unfortunate Leeds keeper Carly Telford bundled Kelly Smith’s corner into her own net.

Jayne Ludlow grabbed the second in the 21st minute, nodding home a fine header after a slick move down the left flank ended with Rachel Yankey picking out the Welsh international inside the box.

Jade Moore replied for Leeds with a header from Sue Smith's 26th-minute corner and they threatened to make a fight of it in an evenly-matched second half.

But Gemma Davison confirmed Arsenal's victory with the third goal 13 minutes from time. Smith found herself on the right and drove towards the byline to fire a low cross across the box for Davison to slot home and seal the win.

Arsenal Ladies will now play Everton in the Semi-final of the FA Women's Cup.

This match is scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 22.
