A dream come true - Amy
 Women's Football News 1 Mar 2008
A dream come true - Amy - 1 Mar 2008 - Women's Football NewsEverton goalscorer Amy Kane admitted that her side's 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the Premier League Cup Final had been her best night in football. 
"It's amazing, the goal is a dream come true," she exclaimed. "All the girls worked hard and it's paid off tonight, it's brilliant. It's the highlight of anyone's career to win a trophy.
"The early goal settled our nerves and we defended as a team. Arsenal have been so dominant for a long time but we got our game plan right, we stuck to it and it paid off."
Natasha Dowie savoured her first major winners medal: "All the girls have worked so hard, we were all up for (the game) and I've never seen a team spirit like it was today.
"We were the underdogs and I prefer it that way. Arsenal were expected to win but I think we battled harder and wanted it more.
"Before the game, Mo said to us to go out with all guns blazing and we hit them early. We kept pushing and pushing and it did catch them out and from then on we had to defend that lead and hope they didn't hit back, and fortunately they didn't."
Natasha could have scored a second goal after the break but it turned out not to matter. "I probably should have finished it," she admitted, "my first touch was better than I thought it was and I tried to dink it over the keeper but she pulled off a good save.
"When I was subbed, it was the longest ten minutes of my life! It was so nerve wracking and I was a nervous wreck on the sideline but when the whistle went, it was one of the best feelings of my career. To win a trophy in my first season at Everton is amazing."
Jill Scott was voted as Player of the Match but deflected all praise to her team mates. "I think we deserved it all today, we had the right team spirit and belief that we could win and that saw us through," she said. "Last time we played Arsenal, we lost 2-0 to two set pieces and we felt we were a bit unlucky on the day - we felt we just needed that extra bit of luck tonight and we got it.
"We tried to get another goal in the second half and had a couple of chances, but after that we decided to try and hold the lead and it worked."
Arsenal midfielder Jayne Ludlow graciously conceded that Everton deserved their victory. "It's not a nice feeling but all credit goes to Everton, they were the better team on the night," she said. "We struggled in certain areas and the best team won. We are disappointed, not so much with the result as with our performance."
When asked if it had been one of those days for Arsenal, she replied: "It's been a few of those months. We haven't really got going this season - we've been moving players in and out to try and rest people after the World Cup, so we haven't had a settled team and you could see that in our performance tonight to be honest.
"I know we can do a lot better and I'm certain the other players feel the same way."
