Valencia and North Village Red kept on course to defend their respective Powerade Champions League titles at Goose Gosling Field on Saturday.

Valencia, the under-ten champions, beat Hamilton Parish 3-1 in the quarter-finals to earn the right to meet group A winners BAA Green in the last four.

Unbeaten BAA Green will enter Sunday’s semi-final with Valencia as the firm favourites, having handed their rivals a heavy 4-0 defeat in the group stage.

The remaining under-10 semi-final will be between Somerset and North Village, the group B winners, who have yet to be beaten. Somerset reached the last four after thrashing Dandy Town Gold 4-1 in the quarter-finals.

North Village Red kept their under-eight title defence intact after a 3-0 quarter-final victory over Somerset. Village will now do battle with group A winners Hamilton Parish in the semi-finals.

In the other under-eight quarter-final, BAA Green defeated Warwick Academy 5-3. BAA Green will now face group B winners Valencia in the semi-finals.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Dandy Town and BAA Knights prevailed in their under-12 quarter-finals against Valencia and Somerset respectively. Town beat Valencia 2-0 in a penalty shoot-out after the teams were deadlocked at 1-1 at the end of normal time, while BAA Knights thumped Somerset 3-0.

Town will now face BAA Green, the unbeaten group B winners and defending champions, in the first under-12 semi-final while BAA Knights lock horns with unbeaten group A winners Hamilton Parish in the other semi-final.

BAA Green hammered Town 5-0 while Parish edged BAA Knights 2-1 during the group stage.

The finals will be held on May 17.
