ohno... I've seen similar disappointing sports and current event results recently on Google as well. It's also impossible, eg, to find TV times for certain playoff games in the US or events I expect to be televised.
I get the feeling that the official teams or league may be doing this on purpose. Google licenses box scores, so it's possible that the leagues which control the rights to use the scores want a delay. Maybe the sponsors of TV post-game wrap-ups want to hold onto that audience for a while. I'm not sure... just conjecture... but I agree that something has changed.
Compare with this report on World Cup scores from 2010....
Interesting google SERPs for 'world cup'
Hard to say why Bing now has them first. Google generally indexes websites much faster than Bing, but this is a data feed. I'm sure it's got to do with money... maybe also with priorities.
