The first contest of The Sharks Quiz for the day ignited the heat for the event with Services Junior High School and Kotoka Junior High School facing off at the junior level. The two schools started on carefully steady notes perhaps, with the intended strategy of picking on the weakness of the other to their advantage.
In the first round of the contest, Kotoka fought head-on to finish off with 20 points against 10 for their competitors. As if the moment of testing waters wasn’t over, the competing schools cast their nets and drew nothing in the second round; it ended with nil scores for either schools.
The most critical parts of #TheSharksQuiz are the second to fourth rounds of the contest. In those rounds, contenders lose 5 whole marks for questions answered wrongly. It is therefore relevant that contestants make careful thoughts and give certainly, right answers in order to avoid losing precious marks. This rule conceivably deterred both schools from risking their chances.
Kotoka Junior High School nevertheless took a leap of faith by going hard on their contenders. They made a remarkable imprint on their name in the third round when they nailed Services down to 0 while they clocked 30 points.
The last round for the day became the power button of the contest. Either schools attempted most of their questions and kept on adding on and taking away with the right and wrong answers they gave. At the end of it all, Services floated with 10 points while Kotoka JHS scuffled down at -5. But that would not be sufficient to put Services JHS through to the #JuniorSharks Quarterfinals. Kotoka JHS were victors of the day with an overall 45 – 20 win.
The winners of this contest would however have to come back well-braced in their next contest as we anxiously wait for their next take on.
