Arsenal Ladies are heading for the last 16 of the Women's Champions League after scoring five times in the first half of their second leg against PAOK to take a 14-0 aggregate lead at Meadow Park.Tony Gervaise's team 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.Arsenal were clearly listening. Kim Little - scorer of four goals in the first leg - broke the deadlock in the 10th 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 10 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 are in no mood to take it easy on the Greek champions.
