Final Score:………..Toronto Lynx……..1…………Cleveland Internationals………4……….

Attendance was about 1200 on this warm sunny day. This game had not been moved because of the City of Toronto workers strike because this was not on city property although attendance was surely affected by there not being any city day camps operating. There were still plenty of children here for Youth Day from private and charity group camps filling the stand. The Lynx players stayed for quite awhile after the game signing autographs.

The Lynx played well for a flurry at the beginning of the second half but couldn’t catch up to the Internationals quick start. Lynx head coach Duncan Wilde was back on the bench after missing the last game on Saturday because he went with the Lynx academy teams to a tournament to Chicago. Lady Lynx head coach Danny Stewart coached the Lynx for the weekend game and was also on the bench at today’s game.

Lynx biggest problem this year is they scored just their 16th goal in 15 games. They’ve also now given up 35 goals.

Jeff Fearnell was the referee and didn’t have a busy game with no real rough stuff.

This was a game between the 8th and 9th place team in the Great Lakes Division. The loss ensures that the Lynx finish last (only 2 wins in 15 games) which is a real disappointment after last year making the playoffs for the first time since 2001. The Internationals had beaten the Lynx three times last year (including one playoff game) and beat them in their home game this year. This was the Lynx worst beating of the year. They have one game left and that’s Sunday at 4:00pm at The Hershey Centre against the Michigan Bucks.
