Technically, it's not quite Sunday morning as I type this. However, the teams are getting an early start on Sunday, so I'm going to get this thread started now. Just like the previous two days, I encourage everyone to share scoring updates and opinions in the comments section.
I'll be adding my thoughts throughout the day. Although, I wouldn't expect anything from me prior to lunch.
