Arsenal celebrate title with win
 Women's Football News 13 May 2010
Kim Little scored twice and Gemma Davison added a late third as Arsenal celebrated winning the title with a 3-0 victory over Leeds Carnegie at the magnificent settings of the Emirates Stadium in front of an attendance of 3,572.
The final score was rough on a Leeds side which had contributed much to an entertaining game before a second half penalty sent the game firmly Arsenal's way.
Gemma Davison had looked bright during the opening stages and she was instrumental in creating the opening goal. The winger drove into the area where she teased Steph Houghton before setting up Kim Little to turn the ball home from six yards.
A dangerous inswinging free kick from Davison was well dealt with by Sophie Bradley who headed away under pressure from Jayne Ludlow and from the resulting corner, Faye White hooked a shot past the post.
Leeds could well have been back on terms just before the half hour as Sophie Walton clipped a fine ball over the Arsenal defence to Ellen White who was waved onside but the striker's header came back off the bar.
Arsenal continued to have the better of matters but Leeds were still looking sharp on the break. It took a good tackle from Laura Bassett to deny Rachel Yankey after she had stolen possession just outside the area, Leeds then counter attacked and a good run and cross by Olivia Thackray picked out White who headed narrowly over.
Yankey drove a shot over the bar from 25 yards from the last opportunity of the first half and the England winger had a great chance to double the score three minutes after the restart.
After a Leeds corner was initially cleared, Little's pass released Yankey on goal where her shot was well saved by Carly Telford. Little dispossessed Bradley near the goal line and cut in but for once she missed the target and her shot flew wide of the far post.
Leeds' good start to the second half continued as Carla Cantrell saw a shot deflected just wide and Katie Holtham lifted a shot just over following good work up front from Cantrell.
However their good work was undone on 71 minutes when Arsenal broke into the area and Danielle Carter, on as a substitute moments earlier, was tripped by Walton and a penalty was awarded. Little stepped up and coolly sent Telford the wrong way from the spot for her second goal.
The goal lifted Arsenal and they were unlucky not to add a third as Niamh Fahey's long ball was latched onto by Little, the midfielder setting up Carter whose shot came back off the bar.
Beattie headed a Little corner against the post but Arsenal were soon to score a third goal with four minutes left, Little playing the ball in from the right and Yankey touched the ball for Davison to fire a low shot into the corner from 20 yards.
Rachel Daly came close to pulling one back for Leeds but her floated effort was turned over the bar by Byrne for an excellent save. Leeds fought until the end but could not deny Arsenal on the night and captain Jayne Ludlow was soon lifting the Premier League trophy in front of her ecstatic team mates and manager Laura Harvey, who has won her first piece of silverware as manager of the Gunners.
