Augusco hammer Mfantsipim in Cape Coast derby


Mfantsipim School and St. Augustine’s College were in a grudge match as city-rivals in the Round of 16, Senior Sharks 7.

The contest was to decide who makes it to the next stage of Senior Sharks 7. It was the third contest in the Round 16 series, and it brought fans of these two brilliant Cape Coast schools to their feet. Understandably, this was more than just points and scores, but also the right to lord over the other for at least a year.

Mfantsipim’s path to the Round of 16 had seen them overcome Kumasi Academy at the Second Round stage. St. Augustine’s College (Augusco) were second runner-up of Senior Sharks 6 and were thus competing in their first contest as a Super Ranked School.

The ‘Bakaano’ boys booked another Super Ranked School membership with a well curated victory over the ‘Kotokuraba’ boys.
Looking at Augusco’s enviable track record in the Senior Sharks, their win against ‘Kwabotwe’, as Mfantsipim is commonly called, was not unexpected. The emphatic win against a well-decorated school like Mfantsipim, however, is what left mouths agape.

Right Corner Round

Mfantsipim picked the ballot to start this round and they improved upon their score in their last contest against Kumaca. Mfantsipim had fifty (50) points, while Augusco bagged forty (40) points.

R Cubed Round

Augusco turned up and turned out as they raised the bar in this round with an outstanding display. They were so good in both the Reading and Writing, as well as in the Arithmetic segment, to end the Round with sixty (60) points. Mfantsipim’s total efforts resulted in five (5) points only.

One-on-one Round

Mfantsipim had waved bye-bye to Senior Sharks 7, as it was practically impossible to win this contest. What was left to compete for was a piece of the G-Money largesse at stake.
