New Zealanders Cecilia Cho and Ben Campbell are into the semifinals of the Australian Amateur golf championships in Perth.

The 15-year-old Aucklander Cho dominated Tasmania's Ashlee Dewhurst 7 and 6 at Lake Karrinyup Country Club after completing her weatgher-delayed second round match in the morning.

But Masterton's Campbell had to fight his way back from 2-down with two holes to play to beat Kieran Pratt of Victoria on the 19th.

Cho won the strokeplay title at the weekend and the team manager Valerie Hancox says she made some great putts today.

Her semi-final opponent's yet to be decided while Campbell will play the New Zealand Strokeplay champion, Bryden MacPherson of Victoria.
