Spacey the difference for Arsenal
Monday 01 May 1995
Arsenal won the 25th FA Women's Challenge Cup final at Prenton Park after a brilliant late goal from Marieanne Spacey. Spacey's 81st-minute effort put Arsenal ahead for the only time in the match and clinched the trophy for the north Londoners for the second time in three years.
Liverpool went in front twice in the first half with well-taken goals by the England international Karen Burke - voted player of the match - either side of a Rebecca Lonergan equaliser.
Lonergan put Arsenal level again 10 minutes into the second half and last year's beaten finalists, Liverpool, were again denied victory when Spacey produced her stunning individual goal near the end.
Renowned as one of the best finishers in the women's game, Spacey shimmied past three Liverpool defenders and fired in a fierce shot which gave the Liverpool goalkeeper, Tracey Davidson, no chance.
