altIt was yet another thriller-at-final as Ruhuna and Colombo took a head on fight to crown as champions at Carrom Federation last weekend. Adrenaline and muscle power had nothing much to do in this contest but the sharpness in eyes and accuracy at finger tips had lot to offer. The finals worked out on Sunday dragging fans of both teams to the edge of their seats taking the tie to a fifth match decider since at the end of four matches both teams had two wins apiece. Fraternities of Ruhuna over played Colombo in this decider to seal their championship retaining the trophy for yet another year.
Kelaniya Girls ousted their opponents in all of their matches in the championship acknowledging they are the best of the lot. The guild dispelled Pera in the final to make a convincing 3/1 victory to lift the trophy without much troubles.
Twelve university teams in men’s category and ten in women’s contested under four groups each in the first stage of the championships. End of Quarterfinals Mora, Colombo, Ruhuna and Wayamba marched to Semifinals in the men’s category while J’Pura, Colombo, Kelaniya and Pera did so in women’s category. After two very tight men’s semifinals Ruhuna and Colombo stood slightly above their opponents (respectively Wayamba and Mora) to get to the finals with a 3/2 score line. In women’s category Kelaniya eased to the finals while Pera beat J’Pura 3/2 at their semifinal.
Men’s consolation final was yet another tighter which ended with a 3/2 score line in favor of Wayamba.
J’Pura girls reserved third place with a 3/0 victory over Colombo to conclude their well fought run in interuniversity championship this year.
