Seetha Devi Balika Vidyalaya and Sangamitta Balika Vidyalaya, Matale emerged joint champions at the All Island Schools under 19 girls hockey Championship organised by the Sri Lanka Schools Hockey Association and played at Vaddukodai Central College Grounds.

The match ended in a scoreless draw and the two teams were declared joint champions.

He was quite refreshing performance by Seetha Devi Balika Vidyalaya who were up against a strong Sangamitta BV stickers who were the present National Schools Champions having beaten the Kandy school twice earlier in other tournaments.

Knowing the strength of their opponents Seetha Devi Balika Vidyalaya stickers under the guidance of their coach M A M Ashroff pegged their opposition in a way to deflate their attack. This yielded results.

The Chief Minister of the Central Province Sarath Ekanayake who made the special trip to the Northern Peninsula was the chief guest and he distributed the awards.

In the semi finals Seetha Devi Balika Vidyalaya overcame Janadhipathi Vidyalaya Nawala 4-1 after a penalty shoot out with the scores deadlocked at one all at the end of the regulation time. In the second semi final Sangamitta BV beat Uduvil Central College 2-0. The loser put up a gritty display and became the first girls school from the Northern Province to enter the semi finals of a major tournament.

This augurs well for the future of the game in the province.

In the Consolation finals Uduwil Central went down fighting to one time western province champions Janadhipathi Vidyalaya, Nawala 0-2. Once again putting up an impressive display.

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews


Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
