Kelly: Goal was the sweetest feeling

Sunderland Women's midfielder Kelly McDougall reflected on her winner against Arsenal Ladies last Sunday and admitted: "That was sweet!"

The 25-year-old struck the decisive goal in the closing minutes of Sunderland's 2-1 win at Hetton's Eppleton CW ground with a dipping shot that cleared keeper Emma Byrne but dipped just underneath the crossbar.
