May 29, 2011 W-League--Toronto Lady Lynx vs Laval Comets

Recommended Posts

Result of the Sunday May 29, 2011 W-League game between Toronto Lady Lynx and Laval Comets at Centennial Stadium in Etobicoke at 1:00pm.

Final Score:......Toronto Lady Lynx........0........Laval Comets........0........

Attendance was about 80 on this mild, sunny afternoon.

There weren't too many scoring chances by either team. I'd have 8 minute gaps in my notes because neither team could put the ball in the opposing teams box. I felt the Lady Lynx had the edge in play and really limited the Comets shots on net with blocks and checks from behind to take the ball away from the Comets players before they could decide whether to shoot, pass, or cross. Lynx defenders were Kayla Afonso, Rachel Melhado, Shannen Jainudeen, and Olivia Colosimo.

Victoria Muccili earned the shutout for the Lady Lynx while Cynthia Leblanc did the same for the Comets.

Referee Ige Egal didn't give out any cards in the game as it wasn't very rough.

Best scoring chances included only 2 minutes from the start when TLL Christine Exeter crossed from 20 yards on the extreme right, TLL Jesse Shugg being covered closely by defender ducked the ball and TLL Kinley McNicoll in the center of box headed the ball from 5 yards just wide right of the net. At 45 minutes (1st half), TLL Alyscha Mottershead took a 45 yard freekick from left that's just step in front of charging defender TLL Shannen Jainudeen who just missed connecting on header from 3 yards on the right post. At 46 minutes (2nd Half) TLL Olivia Colosimo took a cornerkick from the right has the charging Jainudeen just a step away from getting her body to a 1 yard tap-in wishing the ball would deflect off her chest or hip but the ball bounced through for a goalkick on the left. Last chance was at 89 minutes when Nicole Mitchell took a cornerkick from the left that had the goalie palm the ball up in a crowd of players but catch it when it dropped back down.

I asked Lady Lynx head coach Danny Stewart after the game about the condition of forward Kodee Williams. She scored the goal in the season opening 2-1 loss to Rochester Ravens but then suffered a leg injury at 23 minutes of the next game against Hamilton Rage on Wednesday and had to be carried off the field. She was on the bench with an ice pack after the game but tests have now revealed a suspected ACL. She is listed as a 2nd year student at University of Wisconsin.

Lady Lynx adapted to her absence this game with forwards Jesse Shugg and Christine Exeter although Exeter tended to play back on the wing and actually came back to make some tackles to break up Comets runs.

Lady Lynx are now on the road for their next five games and won't play at Centennial Stadium again

until Wednesday July 6th. This season opening home stand had them end with a 1-1-1 record.

Comets started their season the day before with a 2-1 victory in London over the Gryphons.
