Playing for keeps


Queenstown Rovers’ player James Apicello slides in to clean out the ball – and Alexandra’s Eric Ishmael in the process – in the 3-3 draw at the Events Centre last Saturday.

The Rovers, playing in the Central Otago League, led 3-0 at halftime but Alexandra equalised with 12 minutes to go.

In another home game last Saturday, the Queenstown Premiers beat Dunedin’s Northern 3-2 and then travelled away on Monday, losing 4-1 to Mosgiel.
