Kingswood outplay Antonians 23-10

Kingswood College opened their inter school rugby season with an emphatic 23 points (4 tries, 1 penalty) to 10 (1 goal, 1 penalty) win over St. Anthony's College in their schools under 19 `A' Division rugby tournament match played at Nittawela yesterday. At half time the Kingswoodians led 8-3.

A thunderstorm before the match washed out all makings on the ground and as a result, the match could not be started on time.

The match finally got underway 45 minutes late and the last 20 minutes was played in darkness with the referee finding it difficult to identify the players as both teams were wearing blue jerseys.

It was the Antonians who set the score board moving through a penalty fired by stand off Chamara Kumara.

But two minute later the Kingswoodians equalised through a 35 meter penalty put over by full back and skipper Rajith Sansoni.

The best try to the match came in the 12th minute of play when Kingswoodians full back Rajith Sansoni grabbed the loose ball and made a sizzling 75 meter run slipping tackles to score far right but failed to add the extra points.

After the turn around the Kingswoodian increased through a try by scrum half Mohamed Afsal and this went unconverted. Kingswood 13-3.

In the 6th minute of the second half the Antonians narrowed the gap when flanker Sajid Laheer powered his way to touch down far right. Stand off Chamara Kumara made a beautiful conversion.

St. Anthony's 10-13.

But the Antonians came back storming into when scrum half Mohamed Afsal spotting a gap breathed the opponents defence to score mid right and this try to went unconverted.

In the dying stages of the game flanker Chethiya Wadugodapitiya scored close to the posts for Kingswood and this try too went unconverted.
