3:54pm – Nero Angulo Valdez’ keeper likes to play very high up the pitch – wondering if that will be their undoing.

3:51pm – 10 minutes to go and the attacking impetus still sits with Argentina.  Nero Angulo Valdez defending well though and occasionally hitting with intelligent counter attacks.

2:57pm – GS United win 2:0 while never looking threatened by Markham.  A very disappointing match.

2:46pm – Markham really aren’t showing themselves in this match.

2:38pm – GS United now up 2:0; Markham need to pick it up and make a game of this and there’s plenty of time to do it.

2:32pm – GS United and Markham have now kicked off.  Less than 2 minutes in and GS United are up 1:0.

2:18pm – El Nacional end their final match with a 3-1 result over the Toronto Kodiaks.  Unfortunately both teams go home.

1:32pm – UBD Men v. Action still deadlocked at 0-0 with 5 minutes to go.  It’s an intense defensive match.

12:06pm – Nero Angulo Valdez have kicked off against UBD – should be interesting to see this match as it could identify how the group will pan out.

12:00pm – Action trounced Digsy 7-0 – Final Score.  (Yes, I do feel ‘trounced’ is justified in a 7-0… …in a 20 minute game.)

12:00pm – sorry… …was eating pizza, I’m entitled.  Don’t judge me….

11:46am – The Action/Digsy score looks as though it should be a great deal more than 2-0 in favour of Action.

11:24am – Jets now lead 3-1 after their #15 scores a good solo effort that she crafted herself with a series of step-overs.

11:20am – The UBD v. Jets match seems to have plateaued – not really looking as though much else will happen… …UBD need to pull this back – a draw at least.

11:16am – Jets are now controlling the game rather comfortably. (Under 10 minutes to go.)

11:12am – UBD Women end their 4 game (maybe more) scoring slump going up 1-0 only to then quickly concede 2 goals to Jets putting them 2-1 down.

11:05am – Back on Field D, Jets prepare to face off against UBD Women – both teams having lost their first match… it’s do or die either way.

11:04am – Popped over to Field C at the perfect moment as a West Rouge strike managed to hit both posts and stay out in their match against GS United.

10:14am – Digsy FC all set to take on UBD Men… seconds to go until kick-off.

10:10am – Action 0:0 Nero Angulo Valdez.  Highlight of the match was the tough defensive effort put forth by both sides.

10:03am – The Action v. Nero Angulo Valdez match is proving to be a bit of a dead rubber as it sits at 0-0 with 5 minutes remaining.  Both sides seem to be cancelling one another out.

9:57am – GS United 1:0 over Barrie Ballers (news just in from field C).

9:50am – Boxing Day Bonanza Champions, Action, have just kicked off against Nero Angulo Valdez (who, while having the longest name may have the shortest combined height.

9:49am – We’re either having technical difficulties or… …or I don’t know.  It shouldn’t be this difficult.

9:44am – Markham win 2-1 – but Jets did manage to make the final third of the match rather interesting.  Look forward to seeing more of both of these teams.

9:40am – Just got word from field C that West Rouge defeated Lions 2:0.

9:39am – Markham now reeling slightly, tripping over each other and soaking up pressure; where was this Jets team, looking strong in the closing minutes, for the first 15 minutes of this round 1 match-up?

9:38am – Jets have just made things interesting bringing the score back to 2-1; we’ve got 5 minutes left in this match.

9:33am – After a series of quick head-fakes, Markham #8 rounds her opponent and smashes a ball into the far post.  2:0 Markham.

9:31am – Seeing a lot of short, quick, technically gifted, wing-back type defenders on the women’s teams this year.  To great effect as well – it’s these smaller, skillful defenders that seem to be the key bodies in both games thus far.

9:27am – Markham lead 1:0 only 3 minutes in.  A quick rally from Jets is required although, thus far, nothing in the match has indicated they’re going to be able to do it.  And just as I type that, Markham #16 is robbed of their second goal by Jets’ keeper after a clear cut break-away.

9:24am – The Jets v. Markham match has kicked off and the Jets have started off with a great deal of pressure.

9:16am – A simple 2-on-1 and the Rebels go up 2:0 over UBD after a cool finish from Rebels #13.

9:14am – Rebels look as though they could score at any second as UBD’s defenders and keeper continually manage last ditch blocks in front of their own goal.
