Final Score:………Toronto Lynx……..2………….West Virginia Chaos……?……?

Attendance was about 100 people on this very hot and humid afternoon with the threat of rain being realized from the 7th minute and got very severe from 9 minutes onwards. It stopped at 24 minutes. An earlier rain in the day already made the real grass field quite slippery.

Lynx had enough chances to put this team away early but only scored the one goal. At 38 minutes, Chris DeAbreu’s cornerkick from left had Damion Scott end up heading a 3 yarder that a defender at the 1 yard kept out with a header.

Chaos almost started their comeback earlier when Matthew Clare’s 25 yard blast from the right hit the top of the bar on a deflection.

Rudolf also game out matching Yellow cards to Lynx Anthony Badahur and Chaos Vinny Crumrine at 95 minutes for a pushing incident near the center circle.

Last chance for the Lynx was a 20 yard freekick at 99 minutes when Chris Mitchell floated in a high one from the right edge of the box and a Lynx player tip header through and out the left side.

The Lynx will regret to let this one get away. They had lost to Indiana Invaders on Friday night to end their four game road trip. The Chaos had not won a game this year and Lynx had beaten them on the road a week ago. Lynx record falls to 4-2-2. With division rivals Michigan Bucks starting with an 8-0-0 record, they should lock up one of the playoff spots and the Lynx will have to hold off Cleveland Internationals who they play in their next home game on July 1st at Brian Timmis Stadium in Hamilton at 4:00pm.

Thinking of a headline before the Chaos came from behind in this very rough contest to tie the game for the Lynx PR guy and in honour of the new "Get Smart" movie opening soon I offered..."Lynx Control Chaos".

"Control" was the government side with Maxwell Smart and Agent 99.

"Kaos" was the Cold War Russian/East European types.

Chaos at Centennial Stadium

Lynx forced to settle for 2-2 draw in controversial match against West Virginia

Date: June 15, 2008

Venue: Centennial Park Stadium, Toronto, ON

Kick Off Time: 4:00 PM EDT

Final Score: Toronto 2 (1) West Virginia 2 (0)

Match Summary:

The Toronto Lynx returned home to the friendly confines of Centennial Park Stadium this afternoon after four games on the road, but were unable to take full advantage, as the West Virginia Chaos battled back from a two-goal deficit to earn a stunning 2-2 draw. The tie elevates the Lynx to a 4-2-2 (14 points) record at the half-way mark of their season and Toronto reclaims a second place tie in the Great Lakes Division with Cleveland. West Virginia stays winless on the season but improve to 0-6-3 (3 points). Jean Tshimpaka and Damion Scott tallied for the Lynx on the attack.

Toronto struck early in the match and took a quick 1-0 lead. Revivo penetrated deep into to Chaos territory, and threaded a pass nearly along the end line into the 6-yard box to an open Tshimpaka. The forward tapped the ball past the West Virginia keeper for his first goal of the year, putting the Lynx ahead in the 7th minute. At that point, the skies opened up and heavy rain fell on the field throughout the remainder of the half. Despite a number of quality chances, Toronto was unable to extended their lead on the slippery pitch, and the teams went to the locker room with the Lynx ahead by one.

Revivo picked up where he left off in the first half and earned his second assist of the afternoon when he again was allowed to dribble deep into the West Virginia box in the 54th minute, with Scott being the beneficiary of his deft touch this time. The Brampton native took Revivo¡¯s pass 10 yards in front of the goal and struck it just under the cross bar for his first-ever goal.

The goal turned the tide of the match, and the game became increasingly physical with hard tackles on both sides of the goal. Matt Clarke of the Chaos received his second yellow card of the afternoon after a rough challenge on Binstock in the Lynx goal area, and was ejected from the match. The ejection seemed to rally the visitors, and they were able to pull within one 9 minutes later when the Lynx were unable to clear a Chaos free kick. Victor Harrision headed the ball home to make the score 2-1. The ball was headed twice off the Lynx crossbar in the free-for-all resulting from West Virginia¡¯s kick into the box before Harrison managed to score.

Four minutes later, the game descended, ironically enough, into chaos after defender Erik DiLorenzo was met on a brutal challenge by Kash Usman, who then flopped to the ground as if shot. The West Virginia midfielder was shown a red card as a result of his actions, but DiLorenzo was sent off by the referee as well for his part in the encounter. Both teams were incensed at the call, and tempers flared. After a lengthy delay, order was restored and the game restarted.

Eight minutes were added to the match by the official as a result of the stoppage. The rough play, however, continued into injury team and Chris McBride was sent off for the Lynx on a questionable challenge. Both teams were reduced to nine men for the remainder of the match. Nine minutes into the extended time, West Virginia equalized on a goal by sub Vinny Crumrine. Toronto was unable to clear the ball from the penalty area, and the midfielder kicked it past Binstock to stun the Lynx and the crowd. Toronto had one final challenge towards the West Virginia goal but Chris Mitchell¡¯s free kick from the edge of the box sailed past the Lynx attackers in the box and the referee blew the final whistle.

Toronto hits the road this week for a pair of road games, with stops in Pontiac, Michigan to battle the Bucks on Thursday evening and Fort Wayne, Indiana on Saturday evening to tangle with the Fever. The Lynx return home on Tuesday July 1 to battle the Cleveland Internationals in the ¡°Steeltown Showdown¡± at Brian Timmis Stadium in Hamilton at 4:00 PM. The game will be preceded by a pair of Hamilton Spectator Cup all-star games (boys and girls). Tickets can be purchased by calling the Toronto Lynx ticketline at 416-251-4625 x 23 or at the box office one hour prior to kick-off.
