Australia Shows their Mettle

Crafty Crocs take down Canada 13-10 in a match that started as a blowout with Australia up 8-2 before five straight scores from Canada made it close. But Rogacki makes two consecutive long-range bombs to Sarah Wentworth for goals and the decision as Australia wins 13-10.

You have to like the Aussies in the gold medal match at this point, having already defeated the Japanese and now Canada. They have Great Britain and Colombia left on the schedule.

The win also gives Colombia some hope for a medal-round appearance. If they can knock of Canada later today that would be huge for them. Either way they have two opportunities left, versus Australia and Canada.

Next round starts at 4:10 with a revitalized Japan vs USA.

  1. Hi Tony,
    Loving your commentary and getting Luis' take in Spanish is great (and he's doing a great job in both languages). Today the streaming was even smooth (and works on my Android tablet!)

    One thing that I was hoping you or Luis could mention to the camera crew is to stop zooming in on the hucks. It's understandable that they might not always choose the best replays for each point, but it's supremely frustrating when they do to only see 3 seconds of slow-mo, close-up disc flight, and then maybe the shoulders and arms of the person catching the disc. I wanna see them read it and jump!!!

    Keep up the good work :)
