Accra Academy inflict painful defeat on Opoku Ware


Accra Academy needed a herculean effort to overcome Opoku Ware School at the round of 16 of Senior Sharks 7.

The Academicians pushed themselves through the ceiling to deny one of the old guards of Senior Sharks. Opoku Ware SHS (OWASS) are Season 2 winners of the ever trending high school quiz, and have consistently been among the elite units.

Accra Academy who were making a return to the Sharks Quiz after a three-year break have also been spotless so far in the competition. The optimism levels displayed by the team in their three contests have been absolutely magnificent.

Accra Aca showcased high aptitude once again in this contest to take two rounds out of the four, even after OWASS had the best start to the contest. This was the most difficult challenge faced by Accra Aca, and they were able to wiggle their way through to success by whiskers.

The squad doing the Academicians proud were Aaron/*Ampofo, Mustapha, Kugblenu, and Samuel.

Right Corner Round

The Owarians were represented by John Kusi (Junior Sharks 5 winner and MVP with Manna International), Osman/*David, Bismark and Samuel. OWASS became the first school to have seventy (70) enviable points in the Social Literacy Round in Senior Sharks 7. Take a bow!

Accra Academy, alias ‘Bleoo’ having the score of OWASS at the back of their head were determined to match or better them. They thus approached their questions meticulously and ended the round with thirty (30) points.

R Cubed Round

STEM Round

The ‘Akatakyie’, an alias of Opoku Ware, have a ten out of ten profile in STEM, but for some reason lacked the required sharpness in this round. OWASS were clearly out of their depth in this round and could only produce one correct answer which was countered by three incorrect answers.

They thus ended the round with a negative score of five (-5). Accra Academy were climbing higher and higher with correct buzzes to end the round with thirty-five (35) points.

One-on-one Round

The contest appeared destined for a photo finish as Samuel to the right of quizmaster faced Samuel to the left of quiz mistress from Accra Aca and OWASS respectively. As English specialists, Samuel of Accra correctly unscrambled the word “deranged” to receive a deafening roar from the Accra Aca faithful in the hall.

Ampofo and Bismark showed up for Accra Academy and Opoku Ware respectively as Math wizards. Nothing worthy came out of their two tries. Mustapha and David represented Accra Aca and OWASS respectively as Science specialists.

Once again they tried all they could to conjure magic but to no avail. Kugblenu and Osman made up the pair of experts in General Knowledge for Accra Aca and OWASS respectively. Osman nearly broke the hearts of the Academicians when he delivered a clean answer to the first question.

Unfortunately neither he nor Kugblenu could identify the Swedish World Record holder in the Pole Vault, Armand Duplantis. Scores at the end of the round gave ten (10) points to each school.

With final scores of this enervating contest, Opoku Ware SHS had one hundred and ten (110) points while the winner for the day, Accra Academy, earned one hundred and fifteen (115) points.
