Cape Town - The Maties booked their spot in the 2017 Varsity Cup semi-final, after they saw off FNB UJ at Danie Craven Stadium on Monday night.
FNB Maties proved far too strong for the Johannesburg side as they won the encounter 65-19.
The Maties scored nine tries in the match and led 30-10 at the break thanks to tries by Kyle Steyn, Craig Barry and two by Edwill van der Merwe.
The second half was more of the same by the Maroon Machine as they continued their dominance, although UJ tried hard to get back into the contest.
Tries by Johan Momsen, Chris Smith, Duncan Saal and two more by Kyle Steyn to complete his hat-trick took the game away from UJ as Maties ran in five tries in the second half.
Maties will now play UJ again in the semi-final next Monday night.
