Kingswood conquer Science in close game


Tharindu Kaushal

In a bitterly-contested encounter between two teams that were equally matched in offence and defence, Kingswood College was able to eke out a 16 (1 goal, 2 penalties, 1 drop goal)-10 (1 goal, 1 penalty) victory over Science College, during the final game of the school rugby season, at the Bogambara grounds yesterday.

Kingswood took the early initiative with well-measured runs into the Science half and was able to secure good positions from which to attack. Their incursions into enemy territory proved fruitful when Flanker Tharindu Wijesinghe slotted through a penalty and Prop Forward Nisal Perera thumped in a drop goal to make it 6-0 at the half.

Science though found their footing in the second half and stormed back through the boot of Fly Half Chathura Gomez, who put his side on the board with a penalty.� They then snatched the lead through a brilliant sequence of play when No. 8 Kanchana Lakshitha went over the line for a try. Gomez was once again amongst the scoring when he put over the conversion. However, the pendulum swung for the last time when Perera scrambled over the line for a try which was converted by Wijesinghe, to give Kingswood a much deserved win.���� ������������ – DS
