St. Peter’s College returned to the summit of the Singer Inter-school Under-20 Division-I Group ‘A’ league table after a week absence, owing to the previous torch-bearer, Royal College’s inability to score four tries in their 27-24 defeat of Kingswood College.
Both teams are tied on points but the free-flowing Petes have the advantage in the try count which hands the initiative to them. The toying at the top will be settled in a definitive way next week as these two teams face each other where a clear leader will emerge. Trinity College retain the 3rd position with a resounding 41-0 triumph over St. Joseph’s College and Isipathana College is hot on their heels after comfortably beating Science College 50-17.
Vidyartha College looks very likely to finish 5th and they consolidated the spot with the 32-19 victory over D. S. Senanayake College. A courageous comeback in the second half means Kingswood displace Joes from the 7th place and St. Anthony’s College, who gave Petes a run for their money before losing, pips DS to the 9th position on the ladder.
