South Jersey Football:
Season Starts With a Lynx Patriotic Bang
Saturday, July 8, 2006
South Jersey Lynx Press Release
The South Jersey Lynx day didn't start out too well but ended with a bang. Since the New Jersey Longhorns had difficulties acquiring a field, the Lynx were under the assumption that they would be awarded the game to be played at home, but arrangements were made at the last minute to play in Linden. Due to the miscommunication and late notice, some of the players were not aware of travel plans. The confusion caused the team to arrive to the field late. Upon arrival, there were several issues with the dimensions of the field that were very noticeable without measuring.

Persails Pitches First No-Hitter in Bernie Robbins Stadium History
Wednesday, July 5, 2006
By Chuck Betman
Righthanded pitcher Mark Persails pitched the first no-hitter in the nine-year history of Bernie Robbins Stadium Wednessday as he shut out the Camden Riversharks 2-0. The no-hitter came in the first half of a doubleheader that featured two seven-inning games. It was the second no hitter hurled by the Surf staff this season as Lincoln Mikkelsen pitched a no-hitter at Lancaster on June 16 of this season. It was also the fourth no hitter in Atlantic League history. Persails faced 22 batters and issued one walk while striking out eight on his way to his fifth victory against two losses.
