Final Score:.......Toronto Lynx........0..........Chicago Fire Premier.........2......

Attendance was about 60 on this warm evening with a bright sun in from the north west and a strong gusty wind from the north the entire game.

Lynx extend their record of losing to all six games this season. This was their fourth game losing 2-0 to go with two games of losing 3-0. They have not scored a goal all season. They did not have a shot on net during the second half while playing a man down and kicking into the wind. The Fire from the 'Windy City' couldn't take advantage of the wind at their back during the second half as much as they should have. They were rolling passes upfield that were carried by the slick field turf over the end line or trying to imitate Finley's first goal and trying to blast highlight real goals but firing mostly off target.

David Meves earned the shutout for the Fire having to make a few saves in the first half but mostly being protected by his defenders from the most dangerous plays. Lynx best chance of the game was at 28 minutes by Lukas Risto when he found himself in alone on a 2 on 1 rush and his 20 yard shot from the left was well over the net.

Matthew Felice played great for the Lynx right from the start stopping Tom Oatley who had been threaded a through ball up the middle and his 15 yard low shot was blocked by the sprawling goalie at 6 yards.

Only good news for the Lynx family heard just before I left is that the Lady Lynx won 2-0 in Hamilton for their second win in a row and the first time they've scored more than one goal in a game this year. They will play at Centennial Stadium this Sunday at 5:00pm against Laval.
