mostly overcast afternoon. A light rain fell
for the last 20 minutes of the first half.
Jasmine Phillips earned the shutout for the
Fury. Both goalies had to make some important
Referee Michael Anthony Izzo gave out four Yellow
cards during the game that I counted--three for
the Fury--very rough play for a W-League match.
Best non-scoring chances were at 14 minutes when
TLL Jade Kovacevic take a cornerkick from the
right was sent out to TLL Adriana Leon at 28
yards who shoots through crowd of players and
goalie makes last second foot save. Kovacevic

the left had a TLL player flick a header across
the 6 yard box and the goalie swatted the ball away
from TLL Jainudeen before she can get a header
at 5 yards.
Lady Lynx didn't really have a lot of chances
in the last 20 minutes of the game. Their best
chances was the opening 20 minutes of the second
half. The first half was even but the Lady Lynx
were constantly offsiide on offensive rushes.
Lady Lynx record falls to 5-3-1 and are still
in the playoff picture.
Fury improves their record to 7-1-0 with their
only loss to Hamilton Rage in the second game
of the season. Yesterday they beat London
10-0 on their road trip. Their website brags
that they haven't lost a regular season game
except to the Lady Lynx for SEVEN years! I
guess they can say that because the Hamilton
Avalanche no longer exist. This year they host
the W-League final-four which may be harder
to win because from what I've heard a lot
of the defunct WSL league players have
made their way to American teams (not in this
6 of 7 team Canadian division).
Lady Lynx next game is Wednesday July 4th at
11:00am at Centennial Stadium.
