Life International fly on Angels’ Ridge into semifinal

Life International, Tema, are into the semi finals of the Junior Sharks Quiz Season 7. It is a feat they achieved at the expense of Angels’ Ridge School. Before this contest, both teams had interesting and perhaps contrasting tales to tell. Being Super Ranked Schools, the two teams had their first taste of Junior Sharks 7 at the Round of Sixteen (16). While Angels’ Ridge had to beat Jireh International the hard way, Life International were massive winners against St. Peters’ Basic, Nkwatia.

This first contest of the quarterfinals series failed to ignite the competition as most anticipated.

Angels’ Ridge, in all fairness deserve commendation for not throwing in the towel when they were down but finding strength to finish hard.

The day, however, belonged to Life International who marched on to the next stage of the competition.


Right Corner Round

It is to be seen in Junior Sharks that when teams are hugely disadvantaged from the blast of the whistle, their overall scores suffer.

Angels’ Ridge could not come up with any correct answers to all the eight questions.

Life International, on the other hand managed to scoop twenty (20) points.


R Cubed Round

The Reading and Writing segment was all

Life International with no points from Angels’ Ridge.

There was no significant departure from this trend in the Arithmetic segment also, but credit goes to Angels’ Ridge for picking the last bonus point from Life International.

STEM Round

Seeing the humongous point gap staring them in the face, Angels’ Ridge dashed for the first question of the STEM Round in a bid to save their dreams.

But their effort was fruitless, just as Angels’ Ridge's was.

After a long spell of inactivity, Angels’ Ridge tried their luck once again, and they were on point for ten (10) points.

At the end of the round, Life International hadn't done anything meaningful, thus ending with a negative point of (-5), while Angels’ Ridge had five (5) points.
