(AP) Wigan won the FA Cup for the first time in its 81-year history, beating big-spending Manchester City 1-0 on Saturday night in one of the biggest final upsets the tournament has seen.


Ben Watson scored on a header off Shaun Maloney's corner kick in the 90th minute at Wembley Stadium.


Wigan, based near Manchester, put together its roster for less than $30 million, while City's cost more than 10 times than amount.


But season still could end on a low for Wigan, which is 18th in the Premier League at 9-19-8 with two games left. Wigan faces relegation to the second-tier League Championship next season unless it can climb in the standings.
