Sam Kerr was Chelsea’s hero once again as her double helped the Blues to a 3-2 extra-time victory in the Women’s FA Cup final against Manchester City, adding to their Women’s Super League title from last weekend.The striker scored two stunning goals on Sunday to help seal a third successive WSL win for Chelsea, and stepped up again at Wembley to help steer her side to victory.
According to Sky Sports,Kerr opened the scoring against the run of play in the 33rd minute, nodding home from Millie Bright’s right-wing cross. The defender’s delivery looked goal-bound, but Kerr was there to help it on its way.
City came from behind twice to force extra-time, the first from a superb Lauren Hemp goal. The winger beat Bright on the left of the area before curling a superb effort into the far corner.It is a game Chelsea won despite being second best for much of the match.
City dominated possession and shots – registering 23 to Chelsea’s nine – but found themselves thwarted by an inspired Berger, particularly in the second half.
Sunday’s defeat is also the first time Man City have lost an FA Cup final, winning on their first three appearances.
