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.
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
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
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.
