September 16, 2006 CSL announces venue and time for Open Canada Cup Final (from CSL website)

Saturday - September 16, 2006
Lynx vs Ottawa Sept 24

Toronto Lynx of the U.S.-based USL First Division, will meet Ottawa St. Anthony Italia, an amateur team in the Ottawa Carleton Soccer League, in the Open Canada Cup Final on Sunday, September 24 at Esther Shiner Stadium in North York, a 5 p.m. kickoff.

The much-anticipated final follows five-months of competition going back to May 19. Thatís when the amateur teams kicked off in the Preliminary Round and the survivors were joined later by CSL professional teams and the Toronto Lynx all the way through to the semi-finals in London during the Labour Day weekend.

The Toronto Lynx have just completed their 10th season with a 5-0 victory of Minnesota Thunder and a campaign during which they celebrated a club record 10-game undefeated streak. Head coach Duncan Wilde described this Lynx team as one of the best he has ever coached.

Ottawa St. Anthony Italia is a highly respected amateur team in Eastern Canada with a history of achievement in Ontario and elsewhere going back 50 years. A prominent member of the Premier Division in the Ottawa Carleton League, Italia is red hot right now and is a finalist on Sunday, September 17 in the Ontario championship for senior amateur teams in the province. Thatís just a step away from a bid for the National Championship and the Canadian title to be played in Surrey, B.C. next month.

Admission to the Open Canada Cup Final at Esther Shiner Stadium (Bathurst St. just north of Finch Avenue) is $25 and $10 for children under 16. Advance discounted tickets purchased by 6 pm on Friday, September 22 are available from the CSL office or can be purchased by credit card by placing a telephone order to (905) 856-5439 extension 4. These advance tickets are $15 for General Admission; $12.50 Seniors; and $5 for Children under 16.
