by Rocket Robin

Result of the A-League game between Toronto Lynx and US Pro 40 played Friday August 25th/2000 at 7:30pm.

8 min...Lynx GOAL Ashton...Francisco Dos Santos rushed along right and crossed into box, the ball was knocked down by Juan Arango and Brian Ashton boots in 10 yard shot to left side of net.

71 min...Lynx GOAL Dos Santos...Mauricio Vincello steps through defenders on run up left side and short pass to Dos Santos who turns and boots ball just under bar in center of net from 10 yards.

Final Score:....Toronto Lynx......2.....US Pro 40....0.....

Lynx tried hard for that third goal which would have given them one extra point in the standings
but one more win should let them beat Montreal Impact for the third and last guaranteed spot in their division.

US Pro 40 played down a man from the 63rd minute when Micah Cooks drew his second Yellow card within 8 minutes for almost identical holding infractions on Lloyd Barker. They only brought one extra outfield player on their bench. (maybe MLS injuries and callups have drained the team reserves).

Attendance was announced as 2545 fans. Tonight was Swing 50+ Night but it didn't attract any more senior citizens than normal. Gordie Tapp told some jokes that he couldn't tell on Hee Haw.

The Lynx gave goalie Carmine Isacco his first start of the season and he played competantly.
Lynx play again on Sunday against Richmond Kickers and this will likely be their first round opponent in the playoffs if they squeeze into that 8th spot.

The Voyageurs who at the game were loud as usual but admitted they were matched by screaming girls tonight.
