Whites to play touch semis

RAIWAQA Whites extended its unbeaten streak with a 10-2 win over Metra in the quarter-finals of the USP Touch Association competition on Monday.

Competition organiser Tevita Mau said the result sets up a mouth-watering semi-final between the two dominant forces in the landscape of Fiji Touch — Brotherhood Broncos from Tacirua and Raiwaqa Whites.

In the last quarter-final, the fleet-footed Sixers of Raiwai proved too strong for Raiwaqa Blues 6-3.

"Sixers utilised their speed out wide to gain the upper hand in this closely-fought encounter," Mau said.

"This sets up the second cup semi-final as a classic between Sixers and USP."

Sixers had earlier beaten USP 3-1 in pool play.

"With Sixers showing their wares in their latest display, it will take a monumental effort from USP to have any ascendancy in this match-up."
