Attendance was about 150 on this hot summer's day.
Wow Tina Blaskovic scored seven goals this weekend! (Better than the whole Lynx team this year). Four against Laval Dynamites on Friday in the Inferno 4-3 victory. I think we have the W-League player of the week.
No doubt that Tina would take the second penalty kick.
Maybe a second chance at the National team Evan? Only point against her is she's 29. Has the nickname 'Goal Machine' been used anywhere in the world yet?
