Central Otago Mirror - - CLASSIFIEDS - SCOTT DON­ALD­SON

Queen­stown Rovers’ Chatham Cup run has come to an abrupt end at the hands of Nel­son Sub­urbs.

The Jamie Whit­marsh-coached side were hum­bled 6-1 by Nel­son Sub­urbs at the Queen­stown Events Cen­tre on Satur­day in the fourth round fix­ture, to deny them their first ever Chatham Cup quar­ter­fi­nals ap­pear­ance.

Nel­son Sub­urbs scored three first half goals through Kris­tian Gib­son, Matt Tod-Smith and Omar Guardi­ola to give them­selves a com­fort­able buf­fer head­ing into the chang­ing sheds at half­time.

Rovers to their credit pegged a goal back straight af­ter half­time to Gareth Beale, but it was short­lived as Ben Wright bagged a dou­ble and a Rovers’ own goal in the 69th minute con­firmed a com­fort­able win for the vis­i­tors.

In the other Chatham Cup fix­ture fea­tur­ing a Foot­ball South team, Cash­mere Tech­ni­cal se­cured a hard fought 2-0 win over Dunedin club Caver­sham.

Mean­while, South­land United picked up a 1-1 draw against Green Is­land in their South­ern Pre­mier League clash on Thurs­day night in In­ver­cargill.

Hen­rique Viana scored Green Is­land’s goal, while de­fender Kazuhiro Obata scored for the home team.

The stale­mate lifts Green Is­land into sec­ond place with 17 points, while South­land is in sev­enth place.
