Final Score:......Toronto Lady Lynx.......1.......Ottawa Fury........1.....

Attendance ended up at about 50 on this hot, humid, and overcast afternoon. There were no groups of schoolchildren at this year's matinee game although I realize it's been a few years since that's happened.

The Fury had a record of 5-0-0 entering this game but today was the day to beat them as a few of their players are away with the Canadian National team—Kadeshia Buchanan will definitely play tonight against Germany so a sports story in today's Toronto Star mentioned. She played for the Lady Lynx last year.

I looked at the Fury starting 11 (after I got home to check) and counted 5 Americans, 2 English, and 1 Norwegian. That left 3 Canadian starters. Defender Shelina Zadorsky, midfielder Bryanna McCarthy, and forward Christabel Oduro—and the three of them played for Lady Lynx within the last three years. [Lady Lynx had two USA and one Mexican (the goal scorer) starters].

The game was not rough at all and I only counted one Yellow card given out by referee Fabrizio Stasolla to TLL Jordyn Listro. Only worry was a bad leg injury to Fury Lydia Hastings who had to be helped off the field and was subbed at 26 minutes.

The Fury had most of the chances in the first half until the Lady Lynx goal and from that point on the game was even until it ended.

Fury Christabel Oduro must have been called offside about five or six times.

The goalie on each team wore the same neon green coloured kit. It would have been interesting to see one team behind by a goal and win a late cornerkick and have their goalie come into the box to add an extra man. How would the referee tell who got in a hand ball if the ball was swatted into the net?

Lady Lynx record is 2 wins, 1 loss, 3 ties which is not good enough right now for a playoff spot. (the four other teams in the Central Conference play later tonight).

Next Lady Lynx game is on Sunday at 3:30pm against Quebec Dynamo ARSQ at Centenial Stadium.
