Attendance was about 25 on this hot and sunny late afternoon.
Best non-scoring chances were at 4 minutes when CK Luke Spence crossed
from 20 yard on the left and CL Cian McDonald volleyed a 10 yard shot
that hit the right post and deflected over to Spence who recrossed and
CK Ian Block shot a 12 yarder from the right that the goalie caught.
9 minutes had CK Spence blast an 8 yard shot from the right that was wide
left of the net. Injury time had CK Tim Simpson blast a 12 yard clear
shot over the net after a Lynx defender whiff on a clearance. 55 minutes
had TL Macca Wilde's cornerkick from the left had TL Danny Ianacito head
a 10 yarder over the net. Two minutes later Wilde took a 50 yard freekick
from the right that had the ball fall to TL Leigh Veidman who shot an
8 yarder that the goalie made a point blank save and TL Callum Home then
shot the 12 yard rebound wide of the post. 77 minutes had TL Veidman chip
a 22 yarder on the left and the goalie got back to punch the ball over
the net for a cornerkick.
Lynx were pressing for the last 20 minutes which made things interesting
as it set the Kings off on counterattacks. The Kings could have put
the game out of reach if they'd been able to put one away. The Kings
goalie caught a lot of high balls during that time that snuffed
out Lynx rallies.
The Kings had been beaten the night before 3-0 in Hamilton. A few weeks
ago I'd looked at the schedule and thought this was the best chance
for the Lynx to win at least one game this year. That point became
unnecessary when the Lynx upset Hamilton a week ago. Kings have done well
in the last few weeks and their record improved from no wins to a
respectable 3-4-1. Lynx fall to 1-6-1.
Tonight's score fits perfectly with the Lynx season. The Lynx have scored
only 8 goals this season which averages 1 per game. (worst in the division)
They have now conceded 16 goals (which is a respectable fourth of the eight
teams) that is an average of 2 per game.
