        For Each dv As DataRowView In DvTheData

	test.Text += dv.Row.Item("Time") & " " & dv.Row.Item("Score") &  "<br>"

hi.. you can use sort function like this..
private DataTable getsortedtable(DataTable dt)
 {
    dataview v=dt.defaultview;
    v.sort="columnName DESC";
    dt=v.toTable();
    return dt;
  }

or make a code like this example

DataTable dt = null;
            DataRow dr = null;
 
            DataColumn idCoulumn = null;
            DataColumn nameCoulumn = null;
            DataColumn Description  = null;
            //int i = 0;

            dt = new DataTable();
            id = new DataColumn("ID", Type.GetType("System.Int32"));
            name = new DataColumn("Name", Type.GetType("System.String"));
            Description = new DataColumn("Description",Type.GetType("System.String"));
 
            dt.Columns.Add(id);
            dt.Columns.Add(name);
            dt.Columns.Add(Description);
 
            dr = dt.NewRow();
            dr["ID"] = 1;
            dr["Name"] = "Name1";
            dr["Description"]="Good";
            dt.Rows.Add(dr);
 
            dr = dt.NewRow();
            dr["ID"] = 2;
            dr["Name"] = "Name2";
            dr["Description"] = "VeryGood";
            dt.Rows.Add(dr);
            DataView dv = new DataView(dt);
            dv.Sort = "ID DESC";

You can keep an integer column with 1 to 90, sort it and then insert HT and FT afterwards.
