That makes it even harder for Cornwall, sitting in fourth place, to catch competition leaders Takapuna with only three days of cricket left this season. They'll take to the field for day two of their match against Taka- puna this Saturday. Meanwhile Eden Roskill's fight to stay in the top division has also been stifled by the weather, with no play in their match against North Shore. If Eden Roskill finish last, they'll drop down to the Tom Hellaby Trophy minor champion- ship next season. City faces two key games Busy times: The Auckland City football side face a busy week with an ASB premiership semifinal against Wellington to play and the rescheduling of their match against Canterbury, which was postponed after the earthquake. Photo: SHANE WENZLICK It's set to be a very busy week for the Auckland City football side. City sit second on the ASB premiership ladder behind Waitakere Unit- ed and are scheduled to play Team Wellington in one of the competition's semifinals on Sunday. But complicating mat- ters is the Canterbury earthquake. The Auckland City match against Canter- bury was to be played last Sunday but was postponed. The match has to be played to decide whether Canterbury or Hawkes Bay will face Waitakere in the other semifinal. The Canterbury match has been rescheduled for tomorrow, 5.30pm kick- off at Kiwitea St. Meanwhile, on the field Auckland City extended their unbeaten run in the ASB premier- ship to 10 games last week, coming from behind to beat YoungH- eart Manawatu 2-1 at Memorial Park. The win gave Auck- land City their eighth consecutive victory. City chose to leave many first choice players behind including Jacob Spoonley, Ivan Vicelich, Adam Dickinson and David Mulligan. That decision looked to have backfired on the visitors when YoungH- eart Manawatu took the lead after 18 minutes, thanks to a goal from Dale Higham. But 20 minutes later Manel Exposito levelled the match for city with a downward header from an Andrew Milne cross. Then Milne put Auck- land in the lead three minutes into the second half with a goal in a crowded penalty area. Manawatu threw players forward in search of an equaliser but came up short as Auckland won with an efficient performance.
