Peterites clinch rugby double with 23-13 win

President's Trophy Schools final

RUGBY: A mid second half blitz by St.Peter's helped them to maintain their unbeaten record as the league and knock-out Milo schools rugby champs for the third consecutive year when they beat Isipathana by 23 points (2 goals and 3 penalties) to 13 (1 goal and two penalties) in the President's Trophy Schools Rugby final played at the Royal College Sports Complex yesterday.

With the scores level at 3-3 at the breather, the Peterites after a hard fought first half to keep their opponents under control, suddenly found their fluency and crossed the Pathana line twice rapidly.

For Isipathana Centre Damith Udayanga scored under the post off an interception and Mubarak gave them the extra points and also put over the penalties.

Aruna Jayasekera refereed.
