NATABUA High School knocked Marist Brothers High School out of the Tuckers Ice Cream National Secondary Schools Basketball Championship during their under-19 quarter-final clash in Suva yesterday.

YSS, led by Fiji U19 rep Britney Kamsoo, plays Jai Narayan College in the semi-final while ACS, skippered by Kelera Koyamainavure, takes on Saint Joseph's Secondary School in the other top four clash.

MBHS is on track to defend its U17 boys title, heading into the semi-final with a clean record.

The U15 MBHS side plays Suva Grammar School in the semi-final.

Meanwhile, Queen Victoria School has created history by reaching the semi-final stage for the first time. The boys from Matavatucou will play LDS.
