“Victory and failure; blended together, brings out the real sportsmanship”
Victory approaches those who stand up and rise after failure. Sportsmanship is not always pride which is gained after a victory. Sportsmanship is rising up after failure, and thriving towards the next step of victory. Hustling with all the energy, determination and courage a team can do wonders, and it’s not always about winning the game but showing the true colors of team spirit.
Following a challenging game in the 1st leg on the 18th of March, the energetic team gave a good fight against University of Peradeniya on the 24th of March. During the first half time, our university team was able to lead the game. As time passed, both the teams showed their full power to be the proud owners of victory. University of Peradeniya was able to win the game after a challenging fight.
At the end of the game, Udara Amalshan Kasthuriarachi of University of Peradeniya was adjudged as the Man of the Series. The most expected The Best Kicker award was won by Kosala Pahalagama of our university, bringing pride to our alma mater.
Our heartiest congratulations goes to our team of Rugby led by Captain Uwin Ariyaratne, for their effort and struggle in the battle field in the game of the Battle of Scholars.
Heartfull wishes from J’pura Flames to the team for making our alma mater proud.
