TOP SEEDS THROUGH TO FINAL IN OPEN/GOLD
AND SILVER DIVISION
Ishira Fernando and Prashan Peiris both
came through beating, Charya Kannangara and Zaffar Sikkander by the same margin
3/2. Whilst Charya being the number 4 held his own up to the end, much more was
expected from Zaffar who had recently been picked to represent Sri Lanka.
Perhaps, this is what match play is all about – being able to handle a
different psyche to stroke play. Young Prashan will be faced with a different
proposition as he takes the underdog position against Ishira who has shown
tremendous confidence right through this new event.
The Silver Division for age group 11 to
14+ too saw no further upsets as the top 2 seeds get ready for the final
battle. Sathsara Dilshan having rested up yesterday due to being gifted a
walk-over showed no rustiness as he despatched the number 4 seed Prashan Heedeniyage
4/3 ensuring that no more Prashan’s are in a final. D. D. Hiruna Sigera continued
his good form and handed marching orders to M. Dilip Muthukumara with a
comfortable 3/2 victory.
The Bronze Division for age group under
10+ was keenly contested with Manisha Hirushan getting the better of Levon Niyarapola
by 3/1 and the girls camp had much to cheer about when Kayla Perera trounced
VikashThangadore by 3/2.
