3rd week of Inter University Rugby Championship was underway at University of Colombo and University of Peradeniya Grounds on 18th and 19th of August, 2018. J’pura, Colombo, Pera, Mora and Jaffna secured victories over the rivals during the past weekend.

Another remarkable chapter of IUG 2018, Netball Championship, was started yesterday on 18th of August 2018 at University of Uva Wellassa grounds. Matches were conducted at four netball courts simultaneously at university premises and fourteen university teams gathered with high hopes to win the battle this year. As the tournament progressed the intensity of the game was increased with loud cheers from the spectators.

After all the action from the previous week, second round of preliminary stage of Inter-University Rugby Championship took place at Colombo and Peradeniya simultaneously on 11th of August.

Inter University Rugby Championship was kicked-off yesterday with 5 preliminary round matches played at Colombo and Peradeniya during the weekend. University of Sri Jayawardanepura locked horns with University of Jaffna while Wayamba University confronted Rajarata University at University of Colombo grounds. Simultaneously, Uva Wellassa University played against Eastern University and Sabaragamuwa University challenged South Eastern University at Peradeniya University Grounds.

As an indoor volleyball court wasn’t their luxury like it was for many other universities, they opted to play on an outdoor court, not out of choice but out of lack of options. As their practice sessions often clashed with late hours of the day, providing a lighting supply to the court was the next challenge they had to overcome. After several failed attempts to sway the university administration’s attention in that direction over two years, they decided to spend out of their own pockets and buy six flashlights for the court.

Sunday dawned to the most anticipated Match of the Mora fans in the IUG Elle tournament. Having lost the Match with Eastern University, Mora had to win this match to stay in the series. University of Ruhuna team was well equipped with strategic and energetic strikers who seemed to be an unvarying challenge from the beginning.
