Arango's goal helps Toronto beat Boston
Mass. (CP) -- Colombian striker Juan Arango led the way with a
goal as the
Toronto Lynx defeated the Boston Bulldogs, 2-1, in A-League soccer
The Lynx applied early pressure to
the Boston defence and that was rewarded when
Arango collected a pass from
Lynx midfielder Nikola Vignjevic to push the ball past
Russell Payne from five yards out.
The Lynx went further
ahead at the 36th minute when Arango drove the ball from 15
yards and the
rising drive caught Lynx forward Aaron Benjamin and the deflection went
the net to the right of Payne.
With the score at 2-0 at
half-time, Boston quickly went on the attack and scored just
restart on a goal after 47 minutes by midfielder Valmir Gama.
The win improves Toronto to 10-8-4 for 47 points, 10 points
ahead of Montreal for
the third spot in the Northeast Division. The Lynx need
that third position for automatic
entry to the playoffs.
Boston drops to 7-17-2 and sit fifth with no chance of
