Prince Chamara obliged with the conversion to take Havies into the lead.
Soon after that Havies scrum half Mithun Hapugoda managed to get past the Navy SC defenders for the 2nd try, which was converted by Prince Chamara to increase the lead.
The red shirts went on to score their 3rd try in the first half when Randy Silva powered over the line for Prince Chamara to once again make the conversion. At Half Time the score read 21 - 03 in favor of Havelocks.
The 2nd half did not start well for the Sailors. Rukmal Fernando took advantage of a long pass and sped down the right wing to touch down. Prince Chamara who played a pivotal role in that try made no mistake once again to further the lead.
With rain coming down hard it made conditions tough for both teams. But Havelocks managed to secure their fifth try when Dinushan Ariyapala touched down center field in the dying moments of the game.
