Final Score:............Toronto Lady Lynx...........4...............Hamilton Avalanche...........0..............

Attendance was about 100 on this very hot and humid day.

The Avalanche defensive strategy which worked quite well through most of the game was the offside trap. The Lady Lynx were caught offside eight times in the first half and nine times in the second and resulted in two goals being called back. Both teams emptied their benches in the second half to keep fresh legs on the field.

Referee Zac Taylor had a very tame and open game to call with him only giving out one Yellow card to each team.

Sabrina D'Angelo earned the shutout for the Lady Lynx. (first string goalie Justine Bernier was not at today's game but should be in the playoff game). The Avalanche didn't have a shot at the net in the first half and only some routine long shots on net in the second. Victoria Muccilli had to be sharp to keep the game from hitting double digits but more accurate shooting by the Lady Lynx would also have seen them hit ten goals. This is the first game all season that the Lady Lynx have scored more than two goals in one game. They finish their regular season with 7 wins, 2 losses, and 3 ties. Hamilton finishes the season at 1 win, 11 losses.

The win today clinches a home playoff date for the Lady Lynx. They finish second and will host the third place team either Laval Comets or Quebec City Amirals on Wednesday at Centennial Stadium at 3:00pm (the only time they could get a rental on such short notice). The Toronto Lynx men's team plays Michigan Bucks at 7:00pm after that game.
