FULL TIME! Olympia into the semi’s with a huge win.

88′ GOAL! Meredith with his brace now, Little tees him up from the right wing and he obliges with a finish from 5 yards out. 12-0.

83′ GOAL! Wadawu with another assist! He tees up the lettuce farmer, Meredith, and he drills it home off the underside of the crossbar. 11-0.

78′ GOAL! Undy completes his hattrick, pinches in between the defender and keeper and rolls into an empty net. 10-0.

75′ GOAL! Undy with some tidy work, jinks inside his defender and nets into the bottom right, good finish, that’s his brace.

71′ SAVE! Undy tries to loop one in at the back post and it drops a bit short and Burdon collects it calmly.

70′ SAVE! Bellini rattles off another shot and Burdon saves this one as it is straight at him.

68′ SUB! ON: Meredith OFF: Ortmann

67′ SAVE! Burdon goes down well to his left to deny Bellini’s effort. A corner the result.

60′ SUB! OFF: Sklenar ON: Bellini – a shame for the crowd but a sensible decision to rest the bloke.

58′ GOAL! Undy taps home from 6 yards out this time! Wadawu with yet another brilliant assist!

56′ GOAL! Sklenar taps home from 2 yards out. Undy with some good lead up play and plays Little inside the 18 yard box who plays across the goal line where Sklenar is on hand to put it in. 7-0. 6 for Sklenar.

53′ GOAL! Sklenar nets his fifth of the game! Spins around a defender and then smacks it into the bottom left.

Olympia controlling the second half so far – Wadawu pulling a lot of strings from the right wing still, he’s been dominant today. Into the 53rd minute.

SECOND HALF UNDERWAY!

HALF TIME! Olympia all over this!

44′ GOAL! Sklenar’s fourth now, another assist from Wadawu! Mearns releases Wadawu in acres of space down the right and Sklenar sped to the space and tapped home from Wadawu’s cross.

43′ SHOT OFF! Sklenar releases Sammut and the left full back plays a tidy cross to the near post that Undy puts wide.

37′ HEADER WIDE! Little leaps highest at the back post from a corner and nods one wide.

A quiet 10 minutes has just passed again. Into the 37th.

28′ GOAL! Wadawu converts the penalty. 4-0.

27′ PENALTY! Wadawu draws the foul inside the box and goes to ground and the referee has no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

24′ FIRST SHOT OFF! As Vandermey puts his foot through one and drags it to the left of the goals.

22′ GOAL! Sklenar headers home from another brilliant Wadawu cross. Sklenar on fire! Thats the hattrick!

21′ GOAL! Sklenar at the double, too hard to miss with service like that from Wadawu. Perfect delivery and DeCarpentier should really have saved the effort.

Game has gone quiet again – into the 19th minute. Olympia just controlling possession but not really creating too many good chances.

Sklenar causing all sorts of headaches at the moment, clever runs and buildup play.

13′ GOAL! Undy feeds Sklenar and rewards his clever run before he unleashes an absolute bullet of a left footed shot into the top right window. 1-0 Warriors.

10′ SAVE! DeCarpentier saves at the feet of Undy to deny him after Wadawu had laced a brilliant ball through to him inside the 18 yard box.

Still the same. No shots. Quite dull early days – into the 10th minute.

Still not too much to talk about. No shots for either team. Into the 7th minute.

Pretty dull opening so far, both teams scrappy in possession. Into the 4th minute.

KICK OFF! WE ARE UNDERWAY AT KGV!

A David v Goliath battle to kick off the triple header live from KGV. Plucky Nelson stunned everyone when they travelled up the highway and knocked off Rangers, but the Warriors are entirely different prospect altogether. Can the underdogs pull off a miracle? Or will the NPL TAS leading Warriors snuff out the dream. Follow Live from 12:30pm to find out.
