The CIFA Knockout Cup semi-finals continue today, with Titikaveka expected to go all out in the search for their elusive trophy in the women’s division.

 

It’s “do or die” for the side if they are to progress through to the next stage and play the winner in the Tupapa Maraerenga versus Nikao Sokattak match.

Titikaveka will take on Avatiu in a tough battle today at CIFA Complex, starting at 5pm.

The side survived the knockout elimination round against Puaikura and has one more hurdle to overcome to make the showdown.

Titikaveka will go into the match as the favoured side, especially with their potent attack, but the team will need to count on an improved performance to overcome a spirited Avatiu side.

One simple deflection, pass, or turn of luck can send the team packing.

Avatiu cannot be counted out of this either, as Nikao Sokattak play against the superior Tupapa Maraerenga in the other semis.

Meanwhile, Tupapa Maraerenga and Nikao will battle in the under-14 boy’s semis before the senior women’s clash.

After losing to Puaikura in the Round Cup Competition, Tupapa Maraerenga will be looking to bring home the silverware for their club.

All matches will be played at the CIFA Complex.
