Aaron Ramsey, laboring into the second period of extra time, had enough left in the tank to come up with one crucial moment in Arsenal history.

Playing with the weight of a nine-year trophy drought and going behind two goals eight minutes in, Arsenal battled back to defeat Hull City 3-2 in a riveting FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium, winning its record-tying 11th title on the strength of Ramsey's 109th-minute goal. 

James Chester and Curtis Davies came up with goals in the 4th and 8th minutes, respectively, to begin what appeared to be an Arsenal nightmare, with the club heavily favored to match Manchester United's record of 11 FA Cups.

Arsene Wenger's squad fought back, though, applying pressure throughout. Santi Cazorla's tremendous free kick sliced the deficit in half in the 17th minute, and Laurent Koscielny's brave finish as he clattered into a defender evened the score in the 71st minute. Kieran Gibbs missed a true sitter in the first period of extra time, something that could have come back to haunt the Gunners in a major way, had Ramsey not come through.

His one-time finish marked the end of a fantastic one-touch passing sequence, with Olivier Giroud's back-heel pass setting up the Welshman for his cup-winning strike. Watch it below (video via Fox Soccer):
