Vidyartha Kandy outclassed Ananda by 43 – 11 to record their eighth successive win of the Singer Under-20 ‘B’ Division 1B rugby encounter played at Longdon Place on Friday. This enabled Vidyartha to clinch the Gopallaw trophy and take the lead to 21 against 20 wins to Ananda.
Vidyartha having 14-11 at the breather accumulated their points through four goals and three tries to a try a drop goal and a penalty by Ananda. Incidentally Ananda made the first scoring and kept the lead for the first 15 minutes before Vidyartha began their scoring campaign.
Vidyartha holding on to a slender three points lead opened up the floodgates in the second half and the late burst was too much for Ananda as they posted five tries in this session of which two were converted with Ananda being unable to do any scoring.
