Slide continues for the Lynx

MONTREAL-Monday, July 31-Montreal Impact shutout the faltering Toronto Lynx 3-0 in A-League action at the Claude Robillard Stadium, here last night.

The loss was the third in four days for the Lynx while on a five-game away swing that so far has resulted in a 2-1 loss to Long Island Rough Riders on Thursday and a 1-0 squeaker in favour of Rochester Raging Rhinos the following night.

Toronto suffered a set back after just three minutes when midfielder Brian Ashton was ordered off  by referee Guy Verna following a goalmouth tangle with  Montreal's Ali Ngon. The referee also awarded a penalty to the Impact and Nick DeSantis scored his first of the season from the spot. With a man advantage, Montreal went on the offensive and went two up after 18 minutes when Mauro Biello scored his third of the season on a rebound after Lynx goalkeeper Theo Zagar saved from Darko Kolic. The score was 2-0 at half-time.

Lynx made several changes at half-time, including goalkeeper Carmine Isacco who took over from Zagar, but the move did not contain the Impact who went up 3-0 at the 55th. minute mark on a goal by Nevio Pizzolitto, his second of the season. Pizzolitto took a pass from Giuliano Oliviero to beat Isacco with a lob from the left wing.

This was the fourth straight win for the Impact which improves to 7-11-3, while Toronto worsens to 8-6-4. Rochester defeated Boston, 2-0  last night, to lift the Rhinos to 12-6-2 for 54 points at the top of the Northeast Division Long Island Rough Riders are second (44 points) and the Lynx third (38 pts.)

These two teams  meet again at the Claude Robillard Stadium next Sunday, August 6, again a 4.05 p.m. kickoff and the Lynx then return to Rochester on Saturday, August 12 for the fifth away game in three weeks, a 7.35 p.m.
kickoff at Frontier Field. These two teams make a quick return to Toronto for a game the following night, a Rhinos vs. Lynx clash at Varsity Sadium, 7.30 p.m. kickoff on the big Multiculture Night
