Arsenal win semi final thriller
 Women's Football News 12 May 2014
 
Kelly Smith inspired holders Arsenal to an eighth FA Women's Cup Final in nine years after a comeback victory over Chelsea at Woking's Kingfield Stadium. 
 
Smith's late 25-yard strike took the match to extra time where goals from Danielle Carter, Shinobu Ohno and Casey Stoney won it for the 12-time winners, despite Eniola Aluko making it 4-3.
 
Smith's 86th-minute goal, her second of the game after earlier cancelling out Ji So-Yun's opener, came moments after Yuki Ogimi looked to have won it for Chelsea. Smith even had a first half penalty saved by Marie Hourihan who had tripped Freda Ayisi.
 
The opening goal came with twenty minutes left as So-Yun lashed home Aluko's pull back from 12 yards. Smith, though, levelled proceedings two minutes later when she headed Carter's miscued shot over Hourihan.
 
Ogimi's tap in appeared to have won it after Siobhan Chamberlain had spilled Aluko's shot. But Smith, who earlier hit the bar from 30 yards, dipped a shot over Hourihan with just four minutes remaining.
 
Smith's drive three minutes into extra time was diverted in by Carter, who then crossed to Ohno for the fourth. Aluko's powerful 20-yard shot made it 4-3, but Stoney's header from a corner sealed Arsenal's place in the Final. 
 
Arsenal: Siobhan Chamberlain, Alex Scott, Leah Williamson, Casey Stoney (sub Anouk Hoogendijk 118mins), Emma Mitchell, Jade Bailey, Yukari Kinga, Kelly Smith, Danielle Carter, Shinobu Ohno (sub Christie Murray 120mins), Freda Ayisi (sub Rachel Yankey 70mins).

Chelsea: Marie Hourihan, Danielle Buet, Gilly Flaherty, Laura Bassett, Hannah Blundell (sub Emma Wilhelmsson 105mins), Laura Coombs, Katie Chapman, Eniola Aluko, Ji So-Yun (sub Jodie Brett 113mins), Jackie Groenen (sub Rachel Williams 45mins), Yuki Ogimi.
