Dharmaraja College, clinched the Division 1 Group A Championship Title Today by becoming the only unbeaten team in this year’s edition of the league. Rajans finished their league campaign today(28) with a clash against Royal which ended in a 17 ALL draw at the Royal Sports Complex.
Fresh off the B-Division from last year, Rajans showed they were genuine title contenders in the first week itself by pushing Trinity College to their limits in their opening encounter at Pallekele before the Trinitians scraped through to salvage a 34 all draw. Since then Rajans manged to keep their consistent winning run week after week while prevailing in the cliff hangers against St.Joseph’s College and Science College.
This is the first time that Dharmaraja College has won the title and they will now look for double honors with the Milo Knock-out Trophy just around the corner.
Thilina Wijesinghe, Buwaneka Udangamuwa and Rochana Hettiarachchi were the players who impressed the most for the lads from the hill country and Thilina’s ever reliable boot not only gave his side a great boost but made him the highest points scorer of 2013 by a margin.
In a league filled with controversy and drama, Dharmaraja College won 7 games out of the 9 they played and drew games with Trinity and Royal with no glitches in their scorecard to follow up the unbeaten run they had last year in the B- Division.
