ORO VALLEY - Coming to you live from Ironwood Ridge.
Finals scheduled to around 5 p.m.
In case you are new to the live blog, here are things to know.
1. The freshest take is on the top. Scroll down to see older matches, stats, information, my opinion, etc.
2. I have a very obstructed view so I might miss some action more than normal.
3. Apologize ahead of time for misspellings of names and typos. I am trying to keep up with the action so my key strokes might be a little off at times.
4. Log-in to the web site, comment along, ask questions and I will try to reply when I can.
5. Never stop. Never stop fighting until the fight is done. (my favorite movie quote, which one is it from????)
