Final Score:……..Toronto Lady Lynx…….6………..Hamilton Lady Avalanche……….0……..
Attendance wasn’t announced but it looked about the same (650) as the School Day game they had on Friday for the men’s PDL Lynx team. The weather was extremely hot and humid.
Justine Bernier earned the shutout for the Lady Lynx although she didn’t have any really difficult saves in the game. Much of the first half was played in the Lady Avalanche end. In the second half the Avalanche got about even in play as the Lynx emptied their bench but their shots were mostly from outside the Lynx box. Nicole Mercer and Rosanna Couture each played one half of this game for the visitors.
Lady Lynx head coach Danny Stewart wasn’t on the bench today but his assistants had an easy time letting the subs see game time in the second half. Referee Grace Iafrate let the players play without too many whistles and no cards given out. The Lady Lynx took half their cornerkicks by two players working them out short on pass plays and the other half the more common long high ball into the box. Both had some success.
Lady Lynx forward Adrienne Ruhe Lischke is the sister of PDL Lynx defender/midfielder Alex Ruhe Lischke. Goaltender Justine Bernier and defender Danielle Bernier (the only sub the team didn’t play today) are sisters. We were pretty sure Lady Avalanche midfielder Vita McKenna is the daughter of their coach Billy McKenna.
The Lady Lynx improve to 2-0 (both shutouts) on the year and play their next game Saturday at 4:00pm against Vermont and Sunday at 6:00pm against Rochester (as part of the PDL Lynx vs. Michigan at 3:00pm day) at Centennial Stadium. They have not played a road game so far this season.

Waiting for the game to start and Adrienne Ruhe Lischke pulls at her earrings as the referee ordered her to remove them. She ends up missing the first six minutes of the game to get them off. Note the visitors had names on their uniforms.
