Minneapolis, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Seimone Augustus scored a game-high 23 points, but it wasn't enough as the Minnesota Lynx lost 76-70 on Sunday night to the Indiana Fever in game one of the WNBA Finals.

Four Lynx players reached double digits in scoring, with Maya Moore, Lindsay Whalen, and Rebekkah Brunson joining Augustus in that department.

After winning the franchise's first-ever league title last season, Minnesota is trying for a repeat performance after posting the WNBA's best record this regular season.

Indiana now leads 1-0 in the best-of-five series, with game two scheduled for October 17 at 7:00 p.m. from Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn.
