A-League game Toronto Lynx vs Rochester Raging Rhinos
by Rocket Robin

Result of the A-League game between Toronto Lynx and Rochester Raging Rhinos played at 7:00pm at Varsity Stadium.

90 minutes of Regular time and two Golden Goal overtime periods still result in no goals being scored.

Rhinos had a few more chances and had sub Steve Butcher put a header off the goalpost at 76 minutes and John Ball had a 10 yard shot go off the top of the bar at 84 minutes.

Rhinos had Lenin Steenkamp and Jimmy Glenn with huge knee bandages and Martin Nash is away with the Canadian National team.

Lynx were in even worse shape as they ended up in the second half with only one regular defender and midfielders Chris Posniak and Brian Ashton playing those positions after subbing for Mauricio Vincello and Marco Reda who aggravated injuries. Regular Adrian Serioux had a thigh heavily taped. Injured Nikola Vignvevic subbed for his brother Nebojsa at 81 minutes.

These teams play each other three more times in the next three weeks so they all won't end as 0-0 draws. (hmm the June 25th meeting here did).
