Millwall Lionesses 0 Arsenal 4 (Carter 10, Yankey 12, Kelly 15, Janssen 74)
Arsenal finished the group stage of the Continental Cup with a 4-0 win over Millwall Lionesses to maintain their 100 per cent win record in the competition.
Arsenal started brightly, scoring three goals inside the first quarter of an hour. The first saw Danielle Carter's header fly past Sarah Quantrill after Rachel Yankey beat her marker and delivered a pinpoint cross just ten minutes into the game.
Yankey turned from provider to scorer when she curled a wonderful free kick past the outstretched Quantrill two minutes later. Chloe Kelly got Arsenal's third in the 15th minute when she capitalised on Quantrill's mistake and smashed the ball into Millwall's empty net.
The second half did not start at the same high tempo as the first and it took until the hour for Carter to cut in from the left flank and hammer a shot over the crossbar.
The striker continued to threaten and midway through the half she curled the ball wide of goal after dribbling into the box.
Arsenal did manage to extend their lead fifteen minutes from time, with Dominique Janssen nodding home her first goal for the club. Yankey again registered the assist, curling in a corner for the Dutch international to power a header past Quantrill.
