Kingswood sign off in style

Kingswood 42 Wesley 20

Kingswood signed off the Singer Under 20 inter-schools rugby league tournament with a comfortable 42-20 win over Wesley in the match played at the Bogambara Stadium yesterday. The Kingswoodians trailing 14-15 at the breather accumulated their points through six goals as against a goal, two tries and a penalty by the Wesleyites.

The ding dong battle in the first half saw Kinsgwood drawing first blood through fly half Lavanga Perera with centre Oshan Perera adding the extra points. Wesley responded with a penalty booted over by skipper and scrum half Azmil Oumar.

Centre Oshan gave the hill capital boys the lead when he went over for a try which gave skipper and full back Rajitha Sansoni an easy conversion as Kingswood led 14-3. Wesley undeterred dealt a double blow when they scored two tries first through winger Viraj Nisanala and then by skipper Oumar who also converted one of these giving Wesley the lead 15-14 at lemons.

The resumption saw Kingswood scrum half Mohamed Afzal helping his side take back the lead when he went over for a try which Oshan made no mistake with the kick at goal. Fly half Aqil Afham’s unconverted try a few minutes later saw Wesley decrease the lead. But that was all that the Wesleyites were able to achieve as the home team went on a scoring spree posting three tries.

The first two were by fly half Lavanga and centre Oshan which was also their second of the match and the third coming from flanker Prabath Wadugodapitiya with Oshan converting two and Rajitha converting the other. -MSA
