Little double seals big win
 Women's Football News 8 May 2011
 
Doncaster Rovers Belles 0 Arsenal 3 (White 7, Little 47,68)
Midfield magician Kim Little turned the game on its head with a magical 21-minute spell that saw her score twice to secure all three points for Arsenal.
 
Boosted by an excellent early goal from leading scorer Ellen White, it was a win they needed as they looked to keep tabs on leaders Birmingham and made it four out of five victories for them in the inaugural season of the FA WSL. It was also the first time Arsenal had scored three goals in a game in the new League.
 
White flashed in a great header after running to meet Rachel Yankey's seventh minute corner at the near post, to take her to three for the season with her second goal in successive League games.
 
The visitors had much the better of things for most of the first half and put together several impressive attacks.
 
Doncaster had to wait until the 31st minute before posing their first real threat, though. Striker Aine O'Gorman fired the ball towards goal from 16 yards but Arsenal 'keeper Emma Byrne reacted quickly, dashing off her line to block the shot with her legs.
 
Arsenal, despite their dominance, rocked everyone when they took a 2-0 lead two minutes into the second half. A tremendous 20-yard strike from Little gave the Gunners a little more breathing space.
 
Doncaster looked to have far too much to do to get back into the game, but Precious Hamilton did manage a low shot that went just wide on 56 minutes.
 
Little was desperately unlucky not to grab her second goal of the game when she turned well and banged the ball against the bar after Doncaster 'keeper Helen Alderson lost the ball as she came for it in the penalty area.
 
However Little only had to wait three more minutes before following up a rebound off the bar to make it 3-0 to the Arsenal in the 68th minute.
 
Understandably, things went off the boil after that but Arsenal were full value for their win and will quite rightly take a lot of positives from this fine all-round performance. Strong at the back, solid in midfield, they passed the ball superbly throughout and in Little had a real diamond who shone where it mattered most - in front of goal.
 
Doncaster Rovers Belles: Helen Alderson, Maria Karlsson, Amy Turner, Tori Williams (sub Lyndsey Cunningham 83mins), Kylla Sjoman, Becky Hall (sub Shelly Cox 69mins), Katie Holtham, Vicky Exley (sub Sarah Owen 79mins), Kasia Lipka, Precious Hamilton, Aine O'Gorman.

Arsenal: Emma Byrne, Steph Houghton, Ciara Grant, Gilly Flaherty, Niamh Fahey, Danielle Carter (sub Julie Fleeting 50mins), Jordan Nobbs, Kim Little, Katie Chapman, Rachel Yankey, Ellen White.
