from the Lynx

RICHMOND, Va --- Sunday, September 17óA spectacular goal by Lynx defender Milan Kojic at the 39th. minute in the second leg of a two-game total goals Eastern Conference semi-final game before 4,027 at Richmond tonight, was enough to put Toronto into the Eastern Conference final and the last four in the North American A-League Championship.

Kojicís first strike of the season was also one of the most spectacular scored at Richmond this season as he rushed up field to connect on a corner kick being taken by midfielder Nikola Vignjevic. The bullet-like header found the roof of the Richmond net well out of reach of Kickersí keeper Mike McGinty.
The Lynx win repeats an identical 1-0 score at Varsity Stadium on Friday night to give Toronto the semi-final series by a 2-0 aggregate and a berth in the Eastern Conference Final.


The Lynx will now face the Rochester Raging Rhinos in a two-game total goals series next weekend, the first game at Varsity Stadium on Friday, a 7.30 p.m. kickoff and the return match at Rochester on Sunday, a 6.05 start.
