Thomians through to semis


Thomians pulled off a magnificent 35/19 win over Vidyartha over the weekend at Havelock Park.

At the short breather winners led 21/7.

Thomians drew first blood through their dashing winger Jaden Koch, which was converted by Yehan Bulathsinghalage. Umandha Seneviratne replied with a try for Vidyartha, which was goaled by Menuka Thilakaratne.

Tries by Shenal Perera and Reshane Dwight with accurate conversions by Bulathsinhalage took the Mount Lavinia lads to a commanding 21/7 lead at the short breather.

 After the turn around, nippy scrum half Malith Perera – who had a grand outing – scored an individually brilliant try. Their last try was scored by Shehan Selvanayagam with Bulathsinghalage adding the extras to take a 35/7 lead.

 Vidyartha made a gallant comeback with two back-to-back tries scored by Nipun Weerasinghe and Deshan Balasuriya. Menuka Thilakratne did the conversion.
