Lady Lynx Play to Goalless Draw

Date: June 18, 2006

Venue: Centennial Park Stadium, Toronto, Ontario

Kick Off Time: 4:00 PM EST

Final Score: Toronto 0 Laval 0

Match Summary:

The Toronto Lady Lynx played to a 0-0 draw against the Laval Comets this afternoon at Centennial Park Stadium in Toronto.

Both clubs entered this afternoon’s match undefeated this season, with Toronto winning all 5 of their matches, while Laval triumphed in all four of their previous games.

Toronto came close to taking the lead in the 29th minute. Loredana Riverso picked up a through ball a spun around her marker and fired, but her shot sailed just over the crossbar.

Despite efforts by both clubs to find the back of the net, it was 0-0 at the half. Play was severally hampered by the hot and humid conditions and persistent strong winds blowing over the pitch, which allowed for a total of only four shots between both teams.

Laval came close to opening scoring five minutes into the second half when Sabrina Bellier redirected a cross towards goal, but with Toronto goalkeeper Justine Bernier was well placed to make the save the game remained scoreless.

Sylvia Forbes came close to breaking the deadlock in the 69th minute. Her impressive solo run down the left flank ended with a powerful strike that beat Laval ‘keeper Marie Bilodeau but bounced just wide of the post.

Both clubs defensive lines stood firm in the latter stages of the match and it was 0-0 at the final whistle. Toronto out-shot Laval 9-3 through 90 minutes of play.

Today’s result leaves both clubs with an undefeated record, with Toronto now 5-0-1 and Laval 4-0-1. Toronto has yet to concede a goal this season.

Toronto remains in first place of the W-League’s Eastern Conference-Northern Division after today’s tie.

The Lady Lynx are next in action when they hit the road to take on the Ottawa Fury on July 1st in Ottawa at 7:30 PM.

Notes: Toronto’s Deana Everett and Sylvia Forbes, who sit in first and second of the W-Leagues points standings, featured in today’s match. Forbes is also tied for first in the goals standings, having scored 9 times so far this season.

Result of the Sunday June 18th, 2006 W-League game between Toronto Lady Lynx and Laval Cometes played at Centennial Stadium in Etobicoke at 4:00pm.

Final Score:…Toronto Lady Lynx……..0……….Laval Cometes……..0………

Attendance was not announced over the PA system but was given in the press box as 1051. I’d estimate the crowd was about 400. The game was being broadcast on Rogers Cable but since it will probably be replayed a few times for content, the fact the game was played while the World Cup France vs. South Korea game was on might marginally cut into attendance.

The weather was very hot and humid but surprisingly windy with gusty breezes effecting both games throughout the game. High crossed balls or kicks downfield might blow over the touch lines or be cut in power by the wind blowing them back. I thought if the Lady Lynx could survive the first half when they were running into the wind, they would have the advantage in the second half with the wind at their backs but they had problems with balls played forward that rolled right to the goalie.

Justine Bernier earned the shutout with a few charges forward to clear potential through balls and a few catches. Best saves were at 51 minutes when she made a point blank save from 5 yards off Sabrine Velier who had received a cross in the box and at 75 minutes when she dived to the right to push the ball wide of goal on Virginie Jacques’s 22 yard shot and then had Tanya Dennis block Sandra Couture’s 5 yard cross from along the right end line. The Cometes were caught offside quite a few times some of it wind aided. The Lady Lynx back four deserved praise for limiting the number of shots that were sent on net. Today’s backline (against weaker teams they only used three defenders) was Robin Rushton, Vonya Beckles (long throw-ins gave them balls into the Cometes box), captain Catharine Marosszeky and new recruit and national team player Tanya Dennis who fit in well. Dennis was moved up to midfield when defender Nicole Mailloux replaced forward Sylvia Forbes at 78 minutes. The defenders had to be wary of Cometes forwards Sandra Couture and Aimee Legault who had each scored three goals against Sudbury Canadians yesterday.

Marie-Pier Bilodeua earned the shutout for the Cometes. She was lucky not to be Red carded at 54 minutes when she was caught out of her box and tripped up Deana Everrett by grabbing her leg when Everrett pushed the ball past her and Bilodeua grabbed her leg. Referee Nenad Brankovic only gave the goalie a Yellow card and awarded the Lady Lynx a free kick from 22 yards.

At 68 minutes, Deana Everrett fed Sylvia Forbes a pass and on a 2 on 1 break with Allysha Chapman as a decoy, took a 10 yard shot from the right that was wide left of the post. At 72 minutes, Amanda Cicchini sent a 22 yard lofter up the middle that just lands over the net after Catharine Marosszeky took a quick freekick. Best play of the game was when Lady Lynx Jennifer Williams connected on a bicycle kick from 20 yards that was just wide left after and Allysha Chapman cornerkick from the right that was headed down for Williams to try her effort.

Cometes captain Amy Walsh had a mixed day as she was injured in at 21 minutes with a hurt ankle and collapsed inside the Lady Lynx net when the goalie punched forward Andreanne Gagne’s cornerkick in a crowd of players and started a fast Lady Lynx breakout. National team fans must have cringed as she is scheduled to play at this stadium next Sunday when Canada plays Italy. Lady Lynx don’t have any players on the national team. Walsh also earned the only other Yellow card of the game when she mouthed off 40 yards away from the play when the Lady Lynx were awarded a freekick deep in their own end.

The tie leaves both teams undefeated with the Lady Lynx holding a record of 5 wins and 1 tie and no goals allowed and the Cometes with a record of 4 wins and 1 tie. A good result for Laval to get a tie on the road after playing in Sudbury the previous day. This was the toughest game of the season for Lady Lynx although I expect the undefeated Ottawa Fury will still be the class of the conference. The Lady Lynx now play four games on the road and won’t be back for a home game until Saturday July 15th against Sudbury.
