Trinity down Vidyartha 20-11
By Aubrey Kuruppu
Trinity pulled off an unimpressive 20 points (4 tries) to 11 ( 1 try 2 penalties) win over Vidyartha in their inter school rugby match played at Pallekele yesterday. At lemons, the winners led 15-3.

Trinity kept play with the forwards and had a fair first half. Flanker Dhammika Senerath, Jayakody and Prop Nalaka Thilinakumara scored for the winners. The kicks at goal taken by full back Jayawardene were useful.

Thilinakumara scored again in the second half to make it 20/3. For Vidyartha, fly half Charitha Seneviratne put over two penalties. Vidyartha's back division was delightful as they indulged in some sweeping moves, with fly half Seneviratne having an impressive game.

The last ten minutes or so were all Vidyartha as they capitalised on a tiring defence. In this period, Milinda Bandara touched down to reduce the deficit. Trinity's back division hardly got a touch on the ball. To add to their woes, fly half. Ainaf limped off mid way with a knee injury.

Referee Aruna Rankothge.
Under 17 game: Trinity 57, Vidyartha 3.
