Sainte-Livrade defeated Saint-Astier / Neuvic 25-7 in the quarterfinals and faces Montrejeau in the semi-finals.
We expected a thunderstorm start of Saint Astier, it was only a fire of straw that was quickly extinguished by the Livadian, which gave us twenty minutes of high intensity rugby. SSL camped in the opposite camp and exploited this domination to enter 10 points on the scoreboard (1 E transformed and a penalty). Dordognots later had some ammunition, but the defense of SSL rejected all the offensive attempts of opponents. 10/0 during the break was "heaven and navy" on the right track. Livradaise fans were quickly reassured because the boys from President Cata crossed the test line: De Souza took advantage of a ball that came on the twenty-two meters, and Leal pierced the defense line to score. This was the turning point of the game with a scoreboard at 20/0. After this, Saint Astier tried, despite a morale at half mast, but the Livenese defense left only an opportunity to try Dordognots. The Tanan center Fokaléu reduced the score.
To conclude on a good note, Livradais, authors of this year's best match, found the resources of numerical minority to cross a final test line. After several "pick and go" Miossec closed the mark.
Next opponent in the semifinals, Montreal.
