The newest addition to the top division, Zahira College Maradana stunned Science College Mount Lavinia in their first encounter by beating them 19-13 at the Air Force grounds in the weekend.
Zahira took an early lead to finish 13-8 at the halfway mark but Science bounced back to level the score-line in the second half. The scores were tied 13-13 before Zahira showcased a pinch of top class rugby in the latter part of the game. They sealed the game by scoring from two penalties to finish 19-13.
Yuzran Lantra scored a try for Zahira but Zaid Sinhawansa bagged 14 points from penalties.
This win will certainly send a serious message to all top division teams and Zahira will not be taken lightly in big games. Up next, Zahira College will face S. Thomas’ College on Saturday the 4th of March at the Zahira College Grounds.
Meanwhile, Royal College got the better of St. Joseph’s College, beating them 28 to 22 in a match that went down the wire. The boys from Darley Road displayed an impressive late counter with three tries in quick succession.
S. Thomas’ College defeated Prince of Wales College 57-00 on Saturday. Isipathana College edged past Dharmaraja College 18-12.
