4 min TORONTO GOAL  Gasparini breaks up pass between back two defenders
and streaks in from 40 yards out and beats goalie low.

24 min TAMPA BAY GOAL  Dougherty gets hip on centreing pass from Donigan
who'd deked defender.  Dougherty tied for the league lead by scoring his
6th goal.  He's only 5 foot 2 inches tall!  He bounces off people.
Seems to be the leader of this team.  He was everywhere this afternoon.

comment to ref about 15 yards away who was directing free kick

73 min TAMPA BAY GOAL  Trittschuh puts in header from corner kick from
Reasoner.  Blizzard players rush out on offside trap leaving two men
alone.  One of the only times that the ref or linesman didn't burn the
Rowdies with an offside call!

74 min Tampa Bay 15 Matt Knowles replaces Harbor

~75 min Tampa Bay yellow card Knowles for knock down

Final Score   Tampa Bay 2 Toronto 1

gets farther away.  Tampa Bay got 8 points in the standings (6 to win, 2
for goals) Toronto gets 1 point (1 goal)
