DESPITE going down to two defeats earlier, Holmwood Technical stayed on course to defend their title as they surprised preseason favourites Manchester High senior team 44-34 at GC Foster College in yesterday's quarter-finals, to book a place in next week's semis.

Holmwood took control of the game early and at the end of the first quarter they were in front 11-7, before extending their lead to 26-21 at the half-time break. Holmwood totally dominated the third quarter to lead 33-21, then held on for an easy win.

Denbigh, Herbert Morrison and Knox also booked a place in next week's senior semi-finals. The Janice Hansel Walker-coached Denbigh had the biggest win of the day, in their game at Manchester High, blowing away St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) 42-11. At STETHS, Herbert Morrison turned back Glenmuir 32-21 and Knox prevailed 34-28 over May Day High.

In the junior quarter-finals, Denbigh again thrashed STETHS, scoring a massive 54-14 win. Joining them in the semis are Bellefield High, who edged Anchovy 27-26, Titchfield, who got by Bishop Gibson 28-22 and Manchester High, who dismissed Yallahs High 35-25.
