It was very tense ambiance at the R.S. Amegashie Auditorium at the University of Ghana Business School, after the Opoku Ware School (OWASS) picked the last riddle of the final round to regain their lead and the game!
OWASS finished what they began from Round One and have eliminated Kumasi city rivals, Anglican SHS, Kumasi (KASS) and Osei Kyeretwie SHS (OKESS).
The victory came only in the last second of the game; a true definition of a derby.
OWASS’ lead was toppled by KASS with the first two riddles of Round Five. They couldn’t believe it. What started as a sweet victory turned sour.
The pains of defeat
OWASS won; KASS and OKESS must go back home and prepare a place for the boss.
The final scores were:
End of contest:
Opoku Ware School: 52pts,
Osei Kyeretwie SHS: 37pts.
KASS, however, made nine points, one point behind, just as the contest ended, thus the defining moment. OKESS trailed with 8/10 in the round.
