Let's get this mofo on!!
minute 11 on matchtracker.
Looks like Carolina's had a few chances.
18th minute and ummmm...much action but still no goal yet.
Lots of tackiling from behind though.
The game is slow, in spite of what the stupid anouncers have said.
So far there has been 20 min + of the game and the anouncers have actually talked about the game for maybe 5.
The PbP is one of the WORST they have done all year!!!
Also there are EMPTY seats in Carolina for a Semifinal! What a bunch of crap!!!!
The teams look very amaturish right now, it goes well with the anouncers.
Lot of empty seats at Vaginova too. Oh wait...they'll blame it on the weather.
I'm suprised to see Venus James start in this match.
That's too bad.
Have we had any shots yet???????????
Beat just awarded a PK.
Fotop shoved Cindy Parlow from behind.
Beat go up 1-0 on a Nikki PK.
It was a corner..Parlow went up and Fotop shoved her from behind with her left forearm.
Game is delayed?!!?!?
Great strike by Venus, acording to Anson, BULL CRAP!! IT MISSED. There are NO great strikes that miss!!!
Allanta gets a PK Fotop makes a STUPID play pushing Parlow from the back. One of the dumbest plays I have EVER seen in a pro game.
Serlinga SCORES!! 1-0 Beat.
Again waht a STUPID play by Fotop.
Weather delay for lighting now.
Great - PAX in Columbus, GA finally starts showing the game and now we have a weather delay!!
Serlenga's PKs are wicked.
So should a PK been called for the Courage when Nonen shoved Riise in the box earlier in the match?
Crap...this weather delay is fooking me up!!
That's too bad about the weather delay.
Blue skies here, oh well, I'm off to straighten the apartment and do laundry then.
Was she in the air? did she have possesion? was it a 50/50 ball? was she anywhere near the ball? did it affect the play?
Can't answer you question without those details.
Riise had the ball in the 18 near the endline and was going to goal..Nonen was in her back and appeared to give her a lil' shove with her left arm/hand.
Goddamn weather delay!!!
I believe Fotop's shove was really blatant. Cindy clearly had a very good chance for scoring while Hege is a diver and maybe the Ref took that into account. But maybe I'm just a tad bit biased
How will this stoppage affect the game? Will it slow down and Carolina will get things back together? We gotta stay focused and not be comfortable with this 1 goal lead.
well at least there's mls to watch while I wait.
NO!! From the replay the contact was part from behind and part from the side and close to shoder to sholder and Riisa really milked the fall. almost all refs will ignore that and some would have even have carded Riisa for tryin to draw the PK by over acting.
The push from Fotop on Parlow was directly from behind AND right in front of the goal AND in clear view of the ref. A very different foul level.
The ref is actually doing pretty good in this game.
Anson is being his usual stupid self. HE "may" be a good coach but his understanding of refereeing is VERY limited and his ability to see what is actually hapening is pathetic!! HE hurts the sport of women's soccer by his comments and his lact of professionalism in the box.
I agree. Dorrance is kinda biased to Carolina. To me, it has been very apparent that he is and he tries to catch himself a lot and try to say something about Atlanta but it still shows.
I NEVER though I would say this: I am getting REAL tired of seeing a bunch of beautiful women laying around in skimpy red swim suits.
Damn, I AM getting old!
29th minute. The game resumes.
If Hooper had an inch or two in her vertical leap she would headed one in. I think it was Liping Wang that sent a pass into Hooper who was in the six. Just a tad over her head.
31st minute. Nikki get booked for I think a foul on Beergut.
32nd minute. Uhhhh should Hooper have been called a foul on Fotop in the box which would have led to a Courage PK??????????
Well, that's good timing. Just put abunch of laundry in and turned the dishwasher on.
