Attendance was about 200 which is the most I've seen this season (I've missed three games).
Magic played a 4-5-1 with team captain Noelle Meeke the lone forward. Their team has only won one division game this year.
Inferno ended their home schedule tonight and depending how they do on their roadtrip to Ottawa and Laval will earn a playoff home game if they can finish 1st or 2nd.
Tina Blaskovic scored once tonight and that makes 11 goals in her last 4 league games. She made the W-League Team of the week for the 2nd week in a row. She was the first Inferno player to ever make Player of the Week.
Tanya Franck--I've been spelling her name wrong 50% of the time for years (some other sources have it as Frank, like the game day insert) but that'll be a winter project to correct the spelling now that I finally ask her.
