Great Scott! Everton claim late win

Great Scott! Everton claim late win - 6 May 2013 - Women's Football NewsEverton 2 (Duggan 34, Scott 90) Chelsea 1 (Jakobsson 47)
An injury time Jill Scott strike ensured a 2-1 victory for Everton in an exciting encounter at the Arriva Stadium. 
The Blues' skipper latched onto a long ball in the dying minutes before looping an effort over advancing Chelsea keeper Shannon Lynn.
Everton had taken the lead in the 34th minute when Alex Greenwood's excellent centre was converted at the far post by Toni Duggan. Chelsea drew level just after the restart when Eniola Aluko put strike partner Sofia Jakobson clear and her powerful drive beat Everton stopper Rachel Brown-Finnis, whose efforts to save proved to be in vain.
A lively opening saw chances for both teams, Duggan latching onto a through ball from Michelle Hinnigan but her effort went narrowly wide with Lynn helpless. Chelsea responded three minutes later when the ever dangerous Aluko forced a smart save from Brown-Finnis. The Chelsea forward then reacted quickest and her square pass saw Blues right back Vicky Jones miraculously block a Helen Ward effort at point blank range.
An end to end game ensued but the Toffees made the decisive break just after the half hour mark when the impressive Greenwood overlapped Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah, and delivered a pinpoint cross which was tucked home by the hard working Duggan.
Chelsea responded immediately after the break. Aluko latched onto a through ball, ran at Lindsay Johnson before playing in Jakobsson who finished at an angle.
The goal though inspired a renewed vigour in the Everton ranks and, after applying the pressure on the Chelsea back line, a scramble involving Scott, Duggan and Chelsea centre half Katie Holtham saw a brilliant effort from Duggan cannon back off the bar with the keeper rooted to her line.
With the game looking like a stalemate, manager Andy Spence introduced 18-year-old Simone Magill on the 80 minute mark and the substitution almost paid immediate dividends. First she had a shot well saved by Lynn, then her dangerous cross was miscued by Duggan.
With time running out it was Scott's moment to grab the headlines when a long hopeful pass from the back was latched onto by the midfielder, whose delicious chip sealed the win for Everton, breaking Chelsea hearts in the process.
When asked about the result, manager Andy Spence thought the score line was a fair reflection: "I think in the end, with all the chances we created and the way we pushed in the second half in particular, the result was fair.
"I think we would have been disappointed had we not come away with the win, and all in all, I am happy with the three points."
Everton: Rachel Brown-Finnis, Vicky Jones, Alex Greenwood, Amy Kane, Julie Nelson, Lindsay Johnson, Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah (sub Simone Magill 77mins), Jill Scott, Toni Duggan, Michelle Hinnigan (sub Jody Handley 90mins), Brooke Chaplen.

Chelsea: Shannon Lynn, Dunia Susi, Claire Rafferty (sub Naomi Cole 39mins), Ester Dos Santos (sub Laura Coombs 58mins), Katie Holtham, Olina Vidarsdottir, Edda Gardarsdottir, Danielle Buet, Eniola Aluko, Helen Ward (sub Kate Longhurst 76mins), Sofia Jakobsson.
