Final Score:....Toronto Lynx 4 Connecticut Wolves 1
Lynx get four points for the win and one extra point for scoring three goals for the first time this season. Wolves are winless in their 10 games this year.

Best move was putting today's program insert photo boy Adrian Serioux into the game. Wow, what energy. He set up at least two other gimme goals that the Lynx couldn't connect with.

Attendance was announced as 6012, an alltime record for a home game with the Lynx. It was 12:00 noon! This crowd was packed with schoolkids. Lets have no complaints about a padded attendance. After the game I walked over to Yonge St to shop for CDs and on the train home, it was filled with schoolkids coming home from the Blue Jays game! No one will complain about their hardcore 17000.

Biggest cheers from the screaming kids was the intro for Brian Ashton who is the player who most looks like Lance Bass (blond guy in N Sync). Also the kids are impressed by the high long ball as adults can kick the ball 60 yards easily.

Last night, Leo Marasovic scored all three goals in Toronto Croatia's 3-2 come from behind victory over Glen Shields Sun Devils in CPSL action.
