Convincing 40-12 win for Kingswood
RUGBY: Kingswood College continued their unbeaten run and for the
President League Under-20 Tournament when they beat St. Anthony's
College by 40 points (5 goals, 1 try) to 12 points (1 goal, 1 try) win
at Bogambara Stadium yesterday.
At Lemons Kingswood led 28-7. This, the first time the Randles Hill
School coached by Nilufer Ibrahim missed the 50 score line. The
first-half was dominated by Kingswood punching holes in the weaker
Antonian defence but the losers re-grouped and played better rugby to
score twice in the second-half.
For Kingswood M.L. Perera, M. Fazly, M.K. Jayasuriya, R. Weeraratne
and I.B. Wickramasinghe scored tries. Skipper Weeraratne was on target
on all five occasions to add the extra points for Antonians. K.S. Preris
and T. Rajaguru scored and T. Bandara converted one.
Referee: Pradeep Fernando. In the junior game Antonains won 15-10.
