Visakha gains edge over rival Ladies in annual water polo encounter

October 21, 2011 (TCS) - Sri Lanka's leading girls school Visakha Vidyalaya trounced rival Ladies College to win the junior and senior annual water polo encounter.

The blue and yellow girls junior team opened the keen encounter beating the girls in red 7-4 in a tensed contest at Colombo's Police Swimming Pool.

The seniors then prepared for the next encounter during the short break, where spectators were treated to sumptuous eclairs in the background of catchy loud music.

A cool breeze and cloudy skies added to the perfect setting when senior Visakhians took to the pool next, beating Ladies 5-2 in a keen encounter that kept vocally-charged spectators on their toes.

Having won four out of the eight encounters, Visakha now has an edge over Ladies in the annual Edussuriya Challenge Trophy. Ladies have won the shield thrice, while one game was a tie.
