    St. Mary’s and Joseph Vaz wins at Kotmale Chox Football

    June 07, 2014

    It was a  big leap Joseph Vaz when they beat Lyceum International School by 13 goals to nil and St Mary’s, Negombo who beat Royal Institute International School by 6 goals to 0 at the Kotmale Chox Schools Under 19 football championship conducted by Football Federation of Sri Lanka.

    The Joseph Vaz team played in their home ground saw the forwards combining well and scoring at regular intervals to make the huge score. Now Joseph Vaz is heading the group with 2 good wins and 6 points as they beat Holy Cross also by 4 goals in the last week encounter at Kalutara. The highest scorer of the day was Menuka Kelum who scored 4 goals for Joseph Vaz and  Supun Lakruwan who scored a hatrick in the second half.  At half time it was 9 - 0.

    The hatrick by Joseph Vaz main striker Supun Lakruwan in the second half made him the first to score a hatrick in the Chox tournament.  It was a good win for St. Mary’s, Negombo as they badly needed the 3 points with the win to have some hopes to be in the group at the qualifying stage. Their forwards played a better game this week to score 6 goals for consolation. Last week they lost to Maristella after leading 2-0 in the first quarter. Sumedha Fernando scored 2 goals for St. Mary’s. Royal Institute played a good game at the first half and it was i-0 at the half time but lost the rhythm after the break.
