THE Islands Electric Lautoka Crushers are one win away from reaching the Vodafone Cup Top Eight competition.

This is after the Crushers defeated the Raiwaqa Knights 24-12 at the Suva Grammar School ground on Saturday.

Second rower Kitione Ligavatu and dummy half Joseva Vunikasaleka stood out for the Crushers. Five eighth Semiti Jeke scored a personal tally of 12 points for the team with a try, three conversions and a penalty.

Messi Lagi, Ponijese Konrote and Sunia Talebula scored the other tries. The Crushers led 16-6 at the break.

The Knights scored two converted tries.

Crushers mentor and dual international Mesake Navugona said the aim was to get to the top tier competition.

Navugona said the platform had been laid for them to move up the level.

"The boys are determined to complete the mission," he said.

"They have been doing the hard yards for a couple of seasons.

"We will be working on our defensive pattern during training in the coming days."

With the win the Crushers have earned a semi-final spot in the premier competition. The semi-finals will be played at Churchill Park on Saturday.
