Attendance was about 80 on this very hot and humid afternoon.

I was surprised the game was here and almost drove out to

the usual airport area stadium where they play most games.

Crescent School is a private boys school which hosted a

Lynx men's team game earlier this year watched by the

student body but now school's out so it was just players'

families watching today's games.

Referee Alison Enright kept control on this not at all rough

game although she gave out a few Yellow cards but flashed them

so quickly that I'm not sure if I missed any.

Best non-scoring chances were at 45 seconds when TLL Nichelle

Prince whiffed on a shot from 12 yards then ran forward and

poked a 9 yard shot that the diving goalie pushed

wide left of the post. 11 minutes had TLL Jordyn Listro

was rolled a pass and she pushed a shot from the right under

the goalie but wide right of the post. 27 minutes had Prince

roll a pass forward for TLL Listro to get to the through

ball and rush in from 30 yards but the goalie checked her off

the ball at 15 yards when she tried to deke around her. 29

minutes had QCA Lea Chastenay-Joseph roll a 20 yard shot from

the right that the diving goalie stopped. 88 minutes had TLL

Ashley Lawrence cross from 18 yards on the far left that was

just over the head of the charging TLL Oni Bernard at 2 yards

on the right post.

This game just about ends the chances of Lady Lynx hosting

a playoff game as they would have to finish 1st or 2nd to

host either the Central Conference semi-final or final. QCA

had only brought a back-up goalie and three outfield players

to today's games so I'd expect they'd be tiring out in this

scorching heat by the time they got to the second half. The

final three goals TLL gave up were similar in they turned out

to be through ball passes setting up low shots into the net.

The three goals came after defender Kadeisha Buchanan was subbed

off after an injury at 60 minutes. Buchanan was beaten

on a few through balls too but ran back to make sliding tackles

getting 'all ball' to poke the ball away without a QCA shot.

The injury occurred on one of these checks against Arielle

Roy-Petitclerc. Buchanan debuted for the Canadian Women's

team against USA in Toronto a month ago and has since played

in their game in Germany.

Back-up goalie is Jillian Quinn and midfielder Rebecca Quinn

are twin sisters (neither came into the game). On the other

side of the city today Downsview Park the Quin twins 'Tegan

and Sara' from Calgary are the headliners at a concert tonight.

I wasn't at the midweek Lady Lynx vs K-W United game so I asked

today for details. They lost their first game this season 2-1

after taking a 1-0 lead. (I didn't expect I'd be able to get

to drive downtown after this game in time to see the MLS Toronto

vs Montreal game). After today's game their record is 4 wins,

1 loss, 5 ties to sit third. They have two road games left--

against winless London and first place Ottawa.

Amirals are just playing out the season with a record now at

1 win, 7 losses, 2 ties.
