Gunners keep semi final hopes alive
 Women's Football News 6 Jul 2014
Arsenal 3 (Smith pen 44,82, Ohno 68) Chelsea 0
Arsenal ended Chelsea's unbeaten streak in the Continental Cup with a dominant display at Meadow Park on Sunday. 
A Kelly Smith double and Shinobu Ohno's second half volley gave Arsenal their second win in Group One, as they closed the gap on leaders Chelsea.
Arsenal nearly got off to a perfect start when Leah Williamson's first-minute free kick found Ohno, but her volley was smothered by Marie Hourihan. Then Smith latched onto a bouncing ball and let rip from 25 yards, forcing Hourihan into another fine save a minute later.
It took fourteen minutes for Chelsea to threaten Emma Byrne's goal, but Gilly Flaherty's header from six yards flew harmlessly wide.
After some tense exchanges, Chelsea sprang into life in the 38th minute. Ji So Yun unleashed a dipping 25-yard strike that Byrne spectacularly tipped onto the bar.
Rachel Williams gifted Arsenal a penalty four minutes later when she blatantly handled from the home side's corner, and Smith smashed home from the spot.
Arsenal made a flying start to the second half and Danielle Carter stung Hourihan's palms from 13 yards in the 46th minute.
Midway through the second half, there was the welcome sight of Jordan Nobbs making her return from a long term injury, coming on as a substitute for Rachel Yankey. Loan signing Turid Knaak was also to make her first appearance for the club during the latter stages.
After more high pressing from the home side, Smith won the ball in Chelsea's box in the 74th minute and fed Ohno, who volleyed into the top corner.
There was still time for Smith to double her tally with eight minutes left, scoring directly from an inswinging corner to seal the victory. 
Arsenal: Emma Byrne, Alex Scott, Leah Williamson, Yukari Kinga, Casey Stoney, Niamh Fahey, Jade Bailey, Shinobu Ohno (sub Turid Knaak 85mins), Danielle Carter, Kelly Smith, Rachel Yankey (sub Jordan Nobbs 65mins).

Chelsea: Marie Hourihan, Hannah Blundell, Claire Rafferty (sub Danielle Buet 66mins), Katie Chapman, Gilly Flaherty, Laura Bassett, Yuki Ogimi, Rachel Williams (sub Jackie Groenen 75mins), Eniola Aluko, Ji So Yun (sub Ana Borges 62mins), Drew Spence.
