Final Score:.......Toronto Lady Lynx..........1.............London Gryphons.........1............
Attendance was about 50 as all the 600 or so day campers who were here for the male Lynx vs FC London game had left after that game ended at 1:00pm.
Best non-scoring chances were at 25 minutes when LG Laura Twinem took a 15 yard shot from the left that was over the goalie and hit the bar. LG Natalie Fiorelli on the right shot a 7 yarder low and the sliding goalie stopped and a defender cleared the ball. In injury time LG Chelsea Phillips on a run down the left curled a 20 yard shot that the goalie blocked at 5 yards and LG Krista Cellucci on the right kicked a 12 yard rebound that the goalie caught. At 48 minutes TLL Tiffany Cameron split the defence at 22 yards and took a low 12 yard shot that the sliding goalie got a foot to deflect wide left. At 76 minutes TLL Cameron rushed to a ball up and shot a low 18 yarder that was saved by the sliding goalie and a defender cleared the rebound.
Referee Manuel Orellano gave out no cards this game. The teams were more frustrated by the offside flags breaking up their rushes.
The result was a surprise as the Lady Lynx record is now 5-4-2 putting them in a tie for second with one game to go. Gryphons are last in the division with a record of 1-7-3. The first four places make the playoffs for a tournament in Ottawa and the teams are shuffling about trying to avoid a first round game against Ottawa Fury who at the moment have an 11-0-0 record (38 goals for/5 against). Lady Lynx finish the regular season with a road game against the Fury. They lost 1-0 by an injury-time goal last Wednesday but this game I wouldn't expect the same result.
Lady Lynx have allowed only 13 goals but have scored only 12 goals in 11 games this season. Defensively competent but can't score enough to make any game comfortable. Last year they had forward Jonelle Foligno who this year was with the Canadian National team including their appearance at the Women's World Cup and midfielder Claire Rustad who was a broadcast host in Canada for that tournament.
