A-League Playoff game Toronto Lynx vs Rochester Raging
by Rocket Robin
Result of the A-League Playoff game between Toronto Lynx and
Rochester Raging Rhinos played Friday September 22nd,2000 at Varsity Stadium at
Lynx start without three starters tonight. The Vignjevic brothers
had left for Yugoslavia for Nikola's wedding this weekend!
Milan Kojic pulled
a hamstring while celebrating his goal against Richmond Kickers last
63 min...Lynx GOAL Francisco Dos Santos...Lynx Hooper takes
cornerkick from left, Lynx Adrian Serioux flicks on and Dos Santos bicycle kicks
from 5 yards from right that tucks in on short right side behind waving
75 min...RR GOAL Dan Stebbins...Stebbins pushes 10 yarder from
right beyond sliding goalie after ball pushed ahead on pass by RR Onandi
No extra time played!
Lynx......1.....Rochester Raging Rhinos.....1
Attendance was announced as
2811 on this cold night with drizzle starting in the second half.
Jamaican international Onandi Lowe earned a Yellow card in the 41st minute for
complaining (for about the third time this game) about the referee whistling
down a play. He'll miss the return match Sunday in Rochester because he'd
already earned a playoff Yellow card.
Referee Jerry Proctor no one had
heard of before so we think he may have been supplied by the A-League to end
that home-town referee rumour.
The press box was crowded including Rhino
media in the front row and national men's coach Holger Osiak and The Toronto
Star's Norm DaCosta making his first appearance of the year.
