TORONTO--Francisco Dos Santos lobbed a
10-yard shot over 'keeper Peter Zaratin in the 26th minute to give the
Toronto Lynx a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact Sunday in front of 2,420
at Varsity Stadium.
Dos Santos and Lloyd Barker both missed on dangerous chances in the first half.
The Impact pressed hard after the intermission, but saved their most serious threats for the closing minutes. Lynx netminder Theo Zagar faced down Montreal's Francois Abraham twice, tipping one header around the post and pulling down another just off the goal line. In a final desperate attempt to equalize, the entire Impact lineup, including Zaratin, crowded into the Montreal penalty area to try and capitalize on a last-second free kick.
Tor-Dos Santos (Ashton) 26
Shots: Mon 4, Tor 9; Saves: Mon-Zaratin 1, Tor-Zagar 2
