Rugby U19 - Mahanama lose to St Sylvester's 37-34

Things didn't go as planned for Mahanama in their rugby encounter against St Sylvester's played in Kandy.  In a match where Mahanama were expected to chalk up an easy win, it was the lads from Kandy who registered a close win by 3 points. The result dashed any hope Mahanama might have had of breaking into the top 3 anytime soon. 

After starting off the season relatively well with a close result that didn't go their way against the more fancied St Thomas's, Mahanama have had a mixed season with their two wins against the bottom of the ladder teams Nalanda and CWW. Injuries to key players haven't helped and their bench strength was severly tested in a heavy defeat against Wesley. They will need to get into top gear if they are to have any hopes of finishing in the top 3 this season. St Sylvester's by earning a tight win have given their school a chance of not being demoted to Division II next year.
