LONDON (AP) -- Aaron Ramsey ended Arsenal's nine-year trophy drought on Saturday, completing his team's comeback in extra time in the FA Cup final to secure a 3-2 victory over Hull.

It threatened to be an embarrassing day for Arsenal at Wembley Stadium when the London club conceded twice in the opening eight minutes against a Hull side which has never won a major trophy in its 110-year history.

But after goals from James Chester and Curtis Davies, Santi Cazorla began Arsenal's fightback in the 17th minute by scoring directly from a free kick.

Laurent Koscielny took until the 71st to equalize and force the game into extra time, where Ramsey completed a slick move to score the goal that will ease the pressure on manager Arsene Wenger.
