Final Score:......Toronto Lady Lynx.......0......K-W United.......2....

Attendance was about 70 on this mild but cooling afternoon with a bright sun in the north west for the entire match.

Stephanie Bukovec earned the shutout for KWU in a game where she didn't have much to do. She was helped by defender Leticia Skeete (former Lady Lynx player) who made some key clearances. KWU defender/captain Kelsey Tikka took most of the cornerkicks and freekicks.

The Lady Lynx had few chances and now have scored only 5 goals in 5 games. Their defence was sound in limiting KWU to few in-close shots.

The game wasn't rough at all and referee Joe D'Onofrio gave out one Yellow card to each team that I counted.

Stuart Neely is the head coach of KWU Ladies which is double duty as he is also the Men's team head coach. Neely said his Men's team is playing a home game tomorrow so he'll be there. These are the same roles that Duncan Wilde occupies this year although he wasn't here today. The Lynx will be playing at home at Sheridan College in Oakville tomorrow at 4:00pm.

This was the first game of the season at this venue for the Lynx/Lady Lynx as the stadium is supposed to be undergoing renovations in time for the Pan Am games next summer. They've driven away the Lynx and the CSL teams Toronto Croatia and Serbian White Eagles. The Lady Lynx were able to secure a few dates here 'between renovation dates'. I didn't notice a single change. While there is no soccer scheduled for Toronto at these games, this stadium is supposed to get sports like field hockey.

Because their DJ wasn't here, the Lynx were not going to open up the press box but the maintenance guy opened it up for me and so it had a working scoreboard--although hard to see in the first half because of the bright sun—and announcements although I wasn't sure until I asked after the game if anyone could hear what I was saying.

Lady Lynx record falls to 2 wins, 1 loss, and 2 ties while KWU improves to 3 wins, 2 losses, 0 ties to pass Toronto by one point in the standings.

Lady Lynx next game is this Wednesday the 18th here at Centennial Stadium at 2:00pm against the 5 win, 0 loss, 0 tie Ottawa Fury.
