Manchester City Women defeat Everton Women 3-1 in FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium

Although the score was tied 1-1 at the end of normal time, City went on to score two goals in extra time and seal the trophy with a final scoreline of 3-1. For the Sky Blues, Sam Mewis, Georgina Stanway and Janine Beckine scored the goals while for Everton, the solitary goal came from Valerie Gauvin.

The match started on a pretty high octane note with City leading the charge and creating most of the chances. But, they were unable to carve out a significant goal out with Mewis hitting a few shots on target.

However, it did come from her feet just before half-time and opened the scoring to make it 1-0. But, as the second half started, it was Everton who came out all guns blazing. And eventually, they had the prize for their effort, when Valerie Gauvin scored a sterling goal and equalized to make it 1-1.
