May 6 - Richmond-Toronto (R)


Recommended Posts

I have a feeling that Toronto is going to win very few games this year. They're rebuilding the team from scratch, and really if you think about it Toronto is like an expansion team in many ways. A lot of the players have left, including the coach, so it's going to be hard to readjust.

Venue: University of Richmond Stadium

Attendance: 1,042

Kick off Time: 7:00pm

Final Score: Richmond 3 Toronto 1

Match Summary: In what head coach Duncan Wilde called his team's best performance of the year to date, the Toronto Lynx dropped a 3-1 heartbreaker to the Richmond Kickers in front of 1,042 fans at University of Richmond Stadium tonight. The Kickers jumped out to an early lead only 5 minutes into the match on striker Kevin Jeffery's second goal of the season. A Jeffery assist on a goal by Richie Williams at the 24 minute mark put the Kickers up 2-0. This energized the Lynx, as they began to take the play to the Kickers with striker John Barry Nusum pulling a goal back for the Lynx at the 67 minute mark, his first in a Toronto uniform. Defender Adrian Serioux came inches away from equalizing minutes later with a near miss off a Lynx set piece. Substitute McColm Cephas relieved the Lynx pressure icing the match for the Kickers with a breakaway goal in the 85th minute. Despite the loss, Wilde was happy with his team's performance. "I am very pleased with the progress," he said. "I felt that we controlled the game, with all three goals coming on breakaways against the run of the play. We hope to build on this performance for Saturday and open our home schedule with 6 points in the bag." The Lynx road trip will continue in Virginia Beach on Saturday, May 8th before the long awaited home opener on Sunday, May 16th at 4pm versus the Rochester Raging Rhinos.

So Duncan Wilde calls it the teams best performance of the year? Here's a quote from a fan who was at the game:

quote:Thoughts- Toronto is BAD... I mean BAD... if they play this bad all season.... it's gonna be a LONG year in Ontario. SLOW ddefense... ineffective offside trap, I feel sorry for the coach.. Richmond SHOULD have won this game 5 or 6-0 and could have easily if they hadn't of slacked off in the second half. Cpngrats to McColm Cephas for his first pro goal.... well deserved.

1) Why is the assistant coaches son starting ahead of Andres Arango?

2) Why has our captain, Sean Faria, not seen the pitch yet?

3) Why does Herbie Hancock continue to get the start, despite the fact Goddard is touted by eyewitnesses as the second coming of Zagar?

4) Why does Joey M continue to be placed in midfield?

well, he has to say something positive because the home opener is around the corner.

i guess the lynx should have lost to Menudo [:o)] as well, since they had to go all the way to 2OT to squeak out a victory.

If Duncan thinks the team is in the step in the right direction, then they should have no problems handling Virginia Beach. He should guarantee a road victory for the Lynx fans (if there are any left).

I support the lynx because if I dont, who will? And plus you dont just come support a team when they are winning.

You guys are real supporters. It reminds me of the times when Ionian were owners of the Impact, when we had an attendance of 2000 a game.

New ownership is the way to go!!!

People who are serious about winning and have a bit of money...
