Final Score:…………Toronto Lynx…….4……….Indiana Invaders………2………

Attendance started off at maybe 20 but increased to about 100 as people drifted over after their kids games ended in the adjacent fields nearby. The day had rain for hours before the game and hours after the game but while the game was on there was nary a drop. The park has natural grass on all their fields and it got quite muddy in the boxes as the game wore on. There is a swamp and forest around three sides of the field and at least one ball was lost during the first half.

The Lynx doubled their goal production of the whole season in today’s game. They had only scored four goals in their seven games up until today. Skeptics would say they only started to score once they were given a man advantage and the Invaders had also won only one game this season (now 1 win, 5 losses, 1 tie) and the Lynx record now improves to only 2 wins, 5 losses, and 1 tie. The Invaders had also only brought a three man bench for subs.

The Invaders had a very intense ‘English’ sound between the players. I asked ejected player Sam Fairhurst who watched the second half from a table just outside the gate where the team was from. He named a few guys from northern England but also from Zimbabwe and Antigua. They’re also all not attending Indiana University but various places.

The next Lynx home game is Saturday July 11th against Fort Wayne Fever which is also to be played here in Bolton at 4:00pm as part of a soccer fest so hopefully there will a bigger crowd.
