    Lynx setattendance record

     TORONTO (CP) -- Nikola Vignjevic ignited a three-goal outburst in the second half as the Toronto Lynx defeated the Connecticut Wolves 4-1 in A-League soccer action Thursday before a club record 6,012 on School Day.
     
     After Lloyd Barker opened the scoring in the 15th minute, Vignjevic, Brian Ashton and Aaron Benjamin put the game away with second-half strikes. Eric Barbieri scored the lone goal for Connecticut, whose 16-game winless streak dates back to last season.
     
     The Lynx, along with the Minnesota Thunder the only unbeaten club in the 25-team league, improved their record to 4-0-1 while the Wolves fell to 0-8-2.
     
     Toronto's previous record attendance was 5,500 for an exhibition game against Portugal's Santa Clara. The team, now in its fourth year, averaged 2,744 a game last season.
     
     A club official estimated that about 65 per cent of the crowd at Thursday's game, a noon start, paid to get in. The club offers free attendance to kids under six.
