Hi runnerjp2005;

The following Linq to XML will return the needed information from the document.

' Load the XML document
Dim xdoc As XDocument = XDocument.Load("C:/Working Directory/ScoresResponse.xml")
' Get reference to root node
Dim xRoot As XElement = xdoc.Root
' Get the Namespace being used in the document
Dim ns As XNamespace = xRoot.Name.Namespace

' Query the document for the needed information.
Dim results = From es In xRoot.Descendants(ns + "EventState") _
              Select New With _
              { _
                  .HomeName = es.Element(ns + "score").Element(ns + "home").Element(ns + "name").Value, _
                  .HomeScore = es.Element(ns + "score").Element(ns + "home").Element(ns + "score").Value, _
                  .AwayName = es.Element(ns + "score").Element(ns + "away").Element(ns + "name").Value, _
                  .AwayScore = es.Element(ns + "score").Element(ns + "away").Element(ns + "score").Value, _
                  .TimeElapsed = es.Element(ns + "timeElapsed").Value _
              }
