We move to the Third Round which is the Problem of the Day. It is a Chemistry question with 10 points at stake in this neck-and-neck race. Any point at this stage is priceless.
Quiz mistress is ‘giving it’ to New Juaben SHS for confusing calculations. They got the the correct answer through a wrong route. Interesting.

End of First Round

New Juaben SHS: 17pts
Adisco: 23 pts
No push-overs in this round. New Juaben is a real threat plus their intimidating supporters. Takoradi doing well. Adisco won’t be too happy because it is not as easy ass the names appeared.
Quiz mistress explains an answer to New Juaben supporters and they respond ‘aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa’. It is getting really funny here.
They finally do after more than three opportunities go waste. New Juaben is in a strong start. Remember Adisco didn’t start their first round in the 1/8 stage well so may be a weak start is a prelude to a strong finish.
Adisco yet to pick a point as New Juaben grab 3 and Takoradi score 5 in first few questions.
One side of the auditorium is full of New Juaben support. They don’t want to be push-overs this evening. The quarter-final stage is dizzy heights for the school which has never reached this stage. They would want a semi-final spot.
New Juaben SHS: ‘Expect excellence’
Takoradi SHS: ‘May the perfect will of God prevail’
Adisco: ‘What many people don’t know is that Adisco is the only school that was actually built by the students themselves in 1910’
New Juaben SHS has an intimidating crowd here. There are no points for loud cheering schools. Only points for actual correct answers. Takoradi SHS needed a tie-breaker in the one-eighth stage to progress.
Adisco, a seeded school, kicked out Suhum SHTS and Nkroful Agric SHS in the one-eighth stage contest. That win by 38pts margin is one of the biggest so far in this year’s competition.
They would want to replicate that form in this contest over less fancied New Juaben and Takoradi SHS. But you can be sure, the two schools will be getting enormous support from Adisco’s rivals.
