FULL TIME! Olympia pinch it late to earn a spot in the final against the Knights.

90+2′ GOAL! The keeper for Zebras had pushed on and Olympia broke down the other end. Sklenar fed Undy and he slid the ball home! 2-0.

82′ GOAL!! A shot from Mearns is parried by Mercuri and Sklenar is the first man to react, pouncing on it to bury the chance and make it 1-0.

77′ SHOT OFF! Hill tries his luck from range, makes great contact but it flies well wide.

69′ SUB! OFF: Little ON: Stevens

68′ CLEARED OFF THE LINE! A long free puts Cole under all sorts of pressure and Huigi knocks him, the ball spills to the line and its cleared away by Hill.

66′ CLEARED OFF THE LINE! Pace should have been the hero there, but his effort lacked power and Vandermey had time to clear it off the line.

66′ SUB! OFF: Downes ON: Kedisha.

63′ SHOT OFF! McArthy his his free well over the bar.

62′ CROSSBAR! Walsh somehow conspires to miss an open goal by smashing the bar. It goes down the other end and Sklenar is fouled deliberately by Lewis and he gets a slice.

61′ SHOT ON! Pace finds some space and unleashes a shot towards goal. Once again its straight and Cole collects easily. They’re inviting trouble at the moment Olympia.

60′ NEARLY A GOAL! Cole’s cleared kick bounces off Pace’s foot and goes bouncing wide of the goal, Wadawu clears the danger.

58′ SLICE OF CHEESE! Groenwolde grabs hold of Sklenar and picks up a slice for his challenge.

Into the 56th minute, not much action so far this half.

Bellini has come on at half time for Ortmann for the Warriors.

SECOND HALF UNDERWAY!

HALF TIME! 0-0.

45′ INJURY. McKeown has gone down with a leg injury, stretcher is out. Not sure what he has done. Will update when we know more. Matthew Pace is coming on for him.

44′ SO CLOSE! McArthy drives a powerful free across the face of the 6 yard line and it evades everyone – Vandermey was just centimetres from reaching it.

42′ SAVE! Mercuri with an absolutely quality save after McArthy unleashed a venomous drive on target.

40′ SAVE! Mercuri is out to spoil off the feet of Sklenar after Wadawu fed him in the blink of an eye off a free kick.

38′ SHOT OFF! Walsh finds a little space down the right wing and unleashes a volley after he finds the time. It’s way off target.

Mearns having a quality game so far. Zebras are playing a very defensive set up and the Warriors are struggling to find a way through.

New man McArthy cutting in at every opportunity from the right. He looks good so far.

29′ SLICE OF CHEESE! Cartwright goes into the book for a late studs up challenge on Walsh. Walsh is slow to get up.

Still very even, Olympia on top of the midfield battle, but neither team is finding a way to get shots on goal.

22′ SHOT OFF! Wadawu tries his luck from way out of town and it flies high.

20′ SLICE OF CHEESE! Downes gets a slice for a late tackle on Wadawu.

19′ SHOT OFF! Sanders intercepts an errant back pass and rattles off a volley in rapid effort but it file wide.

11′ SHOT OFF! Ortmann picks up the ball from about 25 yards out and loops an effort over the bar.

Even game early on so far – not too much to talk about. Neither team has gotten a grip on this yet.

4′ SHOT ON! Huigsloot registers the first shot of the game but its straight at Cole and he collects easily.

KICK OFF! WE ARE UNDERWAY AT KGV!
