Arsenal Ladies progressed to a League Cup quarter final tie at home to Chelsea after winning 11-1 at Newquay of the Southern Division.

The Ladies knew that Newquay, who are in second place in the Southern Division would put up a good fight, and they did that in the first 20 minutes.

They put a lot of pressure on Arsenal and didn't let them play the fluent football they are used to. Rachel Yankey and Jayne Ludlow finally broke the deadlock after 20 minutes, but Newquay never gave up and got their reward minutes after.

Arsenal seemed to settle into the game after this and Ludlow and Sanderson scored making it 4-1 as the half time whistle blew.

Arsenal's experience  showed in the second half and they created many chances. Yankey completed her hat trick, Sanderson grabbed four goals and Faye Marsh and Lizzie Wicks came on and scored their first goals at senior level.
