Arsenal are through to the last sixteen of the UEFA Women's Champions League after scoring nine times in their second leg against PAOK at Boreham Wood, giving them an 18-0 aggregate victory.
Tony Gervaise's side had all but booked their place in the next round with an emphatic 9-0 win in Salonika last week but the manager had warned his players before the return match not to take their foot off the pedal.
Kim Little, scorer of four goals in the first leg, broke the deadlock in the tenth minute after latching onto a pass from Gemma Davison. The Scottish striker doubled her tally two minutes later with another cool finish past the PAOK keeper.
Katie Chapman went through to make it 3-0 shortly afterwards and Jennifer Beattie scored Arsenal's fourth goal in the space of ten minutes when she lobbed the Greek keeper after Rachel Yankey's lofted pass. An own goal two minutes before the break increased PAOK's misery and showed that Arsenal were in no mood to take it easy on the Greek champions.
The goals continued to come in the second period with Little completing her hat-trick two minutes after half time, keeping up her sensational start to the season and taking her tally in all competitions to 11. Davison made it seven with sixteen minutes to play and shortly afterwards it was eight, substitute Lauren Bruton getting on the scoresheet.
The emphatic victory was complete six minutes from time when Laura Coombs fired home Arsenal's ninth of the afternoon.
