Marist U17 through

THE Marist Brothers High School under-17 side will make its fourth appearance in the Coke Zero Deans final in a fortnight's time.

This is after the side edged Ratu Kadavulevu School 10-8 in the semi-final at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

The side is now on its way to continue its winning streak where they have been winning all their grades in the Deans Trophy competition since the U14 grade.

And after shrugging off another offensive play from the Delainakaikai boys, MBHS U17 coach Waisake Kalivetau said they knew they had to improve their performance in the final against Lelean Memorial School.

He said his boys had been challenged in each match to maintain their winning run.

"We're happy about the win and hats off to the boys for giving their best during the game," he said.

"It was a tough game and as they continue winning, the competition gets tougher as well as other teams try to shut us down."

He said RKS played a good game.

"We need to go back, work on few areas before the final."

In the other U17 semi-final, LMS thumped Natabua High School 41-12.

The finals will be played at Lautoka's Churchill Park on August 16.
