After the game, Dwayne DeRosario was mobbed by about
30 friends and family members who ran onto the field. He was a resident of the
suburb of Scarborough. He is the star of the Kickers scoring 15 or the team's 40
goals. Two guys have five goals each. He was listed as a forward but took on the
role of an overlapping midfielder so he could be in all the plays.
raises the question "Should he be a superstar in the A-League or just another
benchwarmer on some European team?" Well I know what most soccer snobs on this
The Lynx don't clinch a playoff spot this weekend. The
Impact won today 3-1 against the US Pro40 but the Lynx play them again on
I thought the Atlantic Division Kickers would have been a much
better team but the Lynx beat them to the majority of the 50-50
Attendance was announced as 2480. It was East Meets West night
with a karate school giving a demonstration and a dance troupe doing a Dragon
Dance but I didn't notice more Asians than usual.
