The Sharks Quiz: Lucky losers, Christian high bounces back to defeat Ketasco
Last weekend, Mawuli School wowed viewers by defeating defending Champions, Christian high in an exhilarating contest. Christian High however knew they had another shot at the contest.
St. Thomas Aquinas SHS could not show up at the competition, which meant the highest scoring losing side had to meet with outstanding school in Group A, Keta Senior High. Until last week, Aburi Girls held that title. They had lost by 90 points to alliance school, Presbyterian Boys Senior High. Unfortunately for the girls from the hills, Christian High lost by 110 pints.
So it was this past Sunday, Christian High met with Ketasco for another shot at qualifying to the next stage of the competition. Both teams started strong in the Right Corner round, answering questions about Ghana and scored 50 apiece. In the second round, Christian High edged out Ketasco by 15 points. The lead widened to 60 points in the STEM Round. Still the lads from Ketasco had a shot, since the final round, One on One round, has a maximum score of 80 points.
It wasn’t to be. In the end “Dzolali” could not keep up with the defending champions. The final scores were 170 to 85 pts in favour of Christian High. Four schools from Group A have qualified for the next stage. They are Presbyterian Boys – Legon, Opoku Ware School, Mawuli School and Christian High.
