Police used tear gas to control a tense situation during the Richmond-Mahinda annual big match in Galle this evening, police said.

Richmond College was granted victory over Mahinda College in their 109th encounter due to  crowd invasion.

    What an irony. The clash between these two schools in the South is termed " the lovers quarrel". Rather it had ended up in a Battle. via DM iPad app

    Looks like this is the trend now at big matches. I hope it does not lead to the authorities having to ban big matches in the future

    The match can be termed as the lovers' quarrel which turned into a rape.
