ADISCO HUSH ST. THOMAS AQUINAS WITH BIGGEST WIN OF THE QUARTERFINALS
The famous Adisadel College, Cape Coast, are into their first Senior Sharks semi-finals in four years after posting a terrific victory over St. Thomas Aquinas SHS. St. Thomas Aquinas SHS, Cantonment, Accra, looked quite the part coming into this contest - solid and indomitable. Before this contest, they held the record in Senior Sharks 6 as the only school to deliver the most wins of three (3). That record, however, was shattered beyond repairs by the time Adisadel College (Adisco) were through with them. The Santaclausians dominated from the first Round of the contest and beyond, admiringly setting a new record in the quarterfinals series.
Their A+ performance has thence become a major cause célèbre within and without Senior Sharks community.
Whichever strategy the Zebra Boys unleashed appear to have achieved its intended purpose, as the Old Toms were rendered completely dispirited.
If the previous Right-Corner scores of Adisadel College is anything to go by, then clearly Adisadel went back to the drawing board and re-strategized.
In this First Round of this contest, they brought home all eight questions correctly to end the round with eighty (80) points. Incredible!
St. Thomas Aquinas also put in great effort and were rewarded with fifty ( 50) points.
St. Thomas Aquinas had to do something and do it real quick to put the breaks on Adisco and restore their chances back on track.
They started this round and were fairly in control over the Reading and Writing segment of the R-Cubed Round.
Unlike in their last contest which saw James Chang galvanize St. Thomas Aquinas to successfully earn valuable points in the Arithmetic segment, things went haywire for them this time round.
They were unable to manage a correct answer in the Arithmetic segment, rather incurring precious deductions in the process.
Adisadel College had no such encumbrances, continuing from where they left off in Round 1 to finish Round 2 with forty-five (45) points.
St. Thomas Aquinas ended the Round with twenty-five (25) points.
With their backs against the wall and the gap widening by the minute, St. Thomas Aquinas decided to go all out.
They took a risk on the first riddle before the options were fully exhausted but they missed bigly to allow Adisadel to earn the first points of the Round.
The Second, third and practically all the buzzers in the Round went in the name of Adisadel College.
That St. Thomas Aquinas could not register a single point in this Round is utterly shocking and incomprehensible.
For the second time in Senior Sharks 6, Adisadel College earned sixty (60) points at the end of the STEM round for their consistency while St. Thomas were sent away with negative fifteen (-15) points.
The body language of the St. Thomas Aquinas lads was that of total resignation even as the One-on-one Round came to life.
Roland and Isaac were thrown in as English experts but both were a pale shadow of themselves.
In Math, Benedict and James introduced themselves as the experts for Adisco and St. Thomas Aquinas respectively.
After making a mess of their first answers, James was on target on the second question.
Adisco had Michael Kwasi as their Science expert up against Jonathan for St. Thomas Aquinas.
Yet again, St. Thomas Aquinas were sharper to bag all twenty (20) points courtesy Jonathan.
Michael and Jeffrey showed up to finish the contest as Social Science experts for Adisco and St. Thomas Aquinas respectively.
Michael was super fantastic, bagging the two excerpts up for identification flamboyantly to send the Santaclausians in attendance agog.
Scores at the end of the Round showed twenty (20) points for Adisadel and St. Thomas Aquinas leading a round for once with thirty (30) points.
Final tallied scores had Adisadel College with two hundred and five (205) points to ninety (90) for St. Thomas Aquinas.
Peerless display by Adisco! Upward and onward they go!
