TORONTO---The Toronto Lynx and Rochester Raging Rhinos battled to a 0-0 draw in an overtime game that more often looked like a brawl than a soccer game.
The Rhinos played the entire overtime shorthanded after Onandi Lowe was ejected in the 89thminute for taking a wing at Juan Orango. Both coaches, Rochester's Pat Ercoli and Toronto's Peter Pinizzotto were ejected in the 104th minute for going onto the field of play during a skirmish that involved at least one Toronto player, and several members of the Rochester bench.
A total of 54 fouls were called during the match, 30 against Toronto and 24 against Rochester. In addition to the red card, six Toronto players, and one Rochester player were issued yellows.
The game was not without it's scoring chances, however. The Rhinos Tommy Tanner and Yari Allnut both missed in the first half, and a shot by Mike Kirnse was stopped by Lynx 'keeper Theo Zagar.
Just after the half, Toronto's Francisco dos Santos missed twice.
