Dunedin remains in the running for a national title.
It will play Manawatu A Green in the semifinals of the national under-17 championships at 10.25am tomorrow in Auckland.
The winner will play either Waitakere or Eastern Bay of Plenty in the final at 2.45pm.
That comes as a result of two wins in yesterday's first knockout games.
After beating North Harbour 26-22 in the top 16 match, it then edged Hamilton City A 27-24 in the quarterfinal.
Dunedin trailed 15-11 at halftime in the quarterfinal, but fought back to take a one goal lead into the final break.
It is the first time since 2016 Dunedin has made the top four at the tournament.
Meanwhile, Invercargill beat Hamilton City B 32-25 in its 25th-32nd playoff match.
