The Toronto Lady Lynx locked up their third consecutive playoff berth with a 2-1 victory over the Vermont Lady Voltage this evening in St. Albans, Vermont. Tina Romagnuolo and Danielle Blair scored for the Lady Lynx in the victory, which raised the the team's record to 6-3-1 on the season. The Lady Lynx sit in third place in the Northern Division, two points behind the Laval Comets but with one game in hand. Next Saturday's encounter at Centennial Park Stadium to wrap up the 2007 W-League regular season for the two clubs will detemine second place in the division, and the right to host a W-League playoff game the following week. Vermont falls to 2-8-0 on the year, tied for last with Hamilton in the division.
The Lady Lynx rebounded from a disappointing loss last night in Laval, and started the game strong. Romagnoulo opened the scoring for Toronto midway through the first half, converting a Brittany Bisnott pass into a goal for the Lady Lynx and a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute. The Lady Lynx dominated the remainder of the frame and took a 1-0 lead into half-time. Vermont opened the second half, though, on a tear and quickly scored to even the match, with Natalie Reed notching her first goal of the season in the 46th minute. The Lady Lynx, however, did not let the quick goal upset their rhythm, and quickly regained their composure. Their patience was rewarded in the 79th minute when Danielle Blair scored her first career goal to put the Lady Lynx up 2-1 and secure the win. Toronto remains undefeated against the Lady Voltage throughout their three seasons of play.
The Lady Lynx return home for a pair of games next week to complete their 2007 W-League schedule. The Rochester Rhinos visit on Wednesday afternoon at 12:00 PM as the Lady Lynx host their annual Youth Day matinee. The Lady Lynx will then have a chance to avenge last night's loss to the Comets and clinch second place in the Norther Division when Laval visits on Saturday, July 21 at 4:00 PM on Fan Appreciation Day to wrap up the 2007 regular season.
