Everton Denied in FA Cup Final

Everton's run in the FA Cup fell short at the final hurdle today, with Tim Howard and the Toffees going down 2-1 to Chelsea in the final from Wembley stadium.

Everton's afternoon started in the best possible way, with Louis Saha scoring after just 25 seconds. However, Chelsea clawed their way back into it, with Didier Drogba leveling the score in the 21st minute.

In the second half Chelsea asserted their dominance, and Frank Lampard's left-footed drive gave the London club an advantage they would not surrender.

Howard made three saves in the loss. You can see a few highlights here and we'll try to put some up later on.
