St. Joseph's Beat Isipathana 19-13 to Win President's Cup

St. Joseph’s College clinched the Milo Inter-Schools President’s Trophy when they edged-out Isipathana College 19-13 in the Knock-Out Tournament final worked off under lights at the Race Course Grounds in Reid Avenue on Saturday.The winners also had the satisfaction of winning the President’s Trophy for the first time as they collected their points from two tries and three penalties after having led 8-5 at half time.

The defending champions Isipathana were under tremendous pressure from the kick off with the absence of a couple of key players due to injury as they managed to score only two tries and one penalty. The Josephians also went on to avenge their earlier defeat in the league championship where they went down 32-39 in an exciting first-round encounter. But this time St. Joseph’s were more determined to prove their talent and potential as they led from the start to the finish before completing a memorable victory in the end. Fly half Chatura Seneviratne had a splendid game as he put the Joes in front with an early try and he followed up with a crucial penalty to extend the lead.

Isipathana of course went through some anxious moments during the first half and managed to score a try through number eight Devin Gunaratne.  St. Joseph’s continued their dominance in the second half with flanker Tharindu de Alwis going over for their second try of the match. Seneviratne of course missed the conversion for the second time but yet he emerged as the match winner for St. Joseph’s by firing across two more penalties in the second half.  Wing three quarter Vinoga Sabanayake scored the second try for Isipathana while Chamodh Fernando put over the solitary penalty.
