By Patrick Korir | Sun 14 Oct, 2018 13:29

Four unbeaten teams at the ongoing Africa Men's Sevens at the Jemmal Stadium in Monatsir, Tunisia  - Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Madagascar all qualified for the semis after respective quarterfinal wins on Sunday 14 October.

First to qualify for the last four was Kenya who went past an improved Zambia 33-7. They face Madagascar who made it to the semis with a 33-10 beating of Morocco in the last quarterfinal game.

Champions Uganda stayed the course as they seek a third straight title after going past hosts Tunisia 14-10 in the second quartfinal. The home team twice responded with tries of their own and will have to rue missed conversions that could have added suspense to the game.

Zimbabwe won the third game of the day with a 19-0 win over Senegal to book Uganda in the semis in what will be a repeat of last year's Africa Cup final in Kampala. Uganda won it 10-7 to retain their 2016 title. 

Losers from the cup quarters drop down to the plate. Zambia will face if with Morocco as Tunisia square it out with Senegal.
