St. Thomas Aquinas snatched victory from the jaws of defeat leaving it late in their National Science & Maths Quiz quarter-final contest.
St. Thomas Aquinas solved the final riddle on the first clue for 5 points as they overcame Nifa SHS, who saw their 3 point lead disappear at the death.
St. Thomas Aquinas SHS ended the contest with 42 points, Nifa SHS with 40 points and St. Hubert Seminary SHS with 35.
The contest was on a knife’s edge going into the final rounds with all schools separated by just 3 points.
All three schools failed to answer the first riddle but Nifa SHS pounced on the second riddle on the second clue for 4 points taking them to 40, with St. Thomas Aquinas SHS trailing with 33 at the time.
But St. Thomas Aquinas picked the final two riddles for a combined 9 points to complete their late comeback.
The 2017 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz is sponsored by the Ghana Education Service through the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) and supported by Tigo, GOIL, Prudential Life Insurance, Accra College of Medicine and GCB Bank.
