The Graduates defeated West Coast FC 3-1 in last month's Don Taylor Cup final. The RASA First Division sides meet again Friday in Provincial "B" Cup quarter-final play. Kickoff is 9 p.m. at Boyd.

It will be a rematch between the Richmond Adult Soccer Association’s Don Taylor League Cup finalists Friday night when West Coast F.C. takes on the Graduates in Keith Miller Provincial “B” Cup playoff action.

The RASA First Division squads will meet at Hugh Boyd (9 p.m.). Last month, it was the Graduates defeating West Coast 3-1 to capture the Taylor Cup. That earned the Graduates a spot in the provincial playdowns and they opened with an impressive 3-1 road win over the Fraser Valley Soccer League’s Langley United Dynamo in opening round play.

West Coast secured its berth by winning the league title with a 15-3-3 record and earned a first round bye.

Also in the Provincial Cup are league runners-up All-Blacks (13-4-4) and they came through with a big 2-0 home home field win over defending provincial champion Vancouver Greencaps last weekend.

The All-Blacks will travel to Vancouver Island Saturday to take on Gorge Us-Guys. They took momentum into the playdowns after winning the RASA Challenge Cup — 3-2 in penalty kicks over Jugadores CF.

Meanwhile, two RASA teams are in the title hunt at the Provincial Masters “B” Cup playdowns. Regular season champion Richmond Old Blacks will host Europa FC on Sunday night (7 p.m.) at the Minoru Oval.

Rounding out a Friday night doubleheader at Boyd, FK Nikola Tesla will be entertaining IG Micromed Dragons, also at 9 p.m.
