Barbieri...Barbieri from 10 yards as three defenders following him and he beat
goalie Theo Zagar who stayed on his line. (thanks to Neil Davidson for these
comments as I missed it).
Final Score:....Toronto Lynx 4 Connecticut
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
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.
