OWASS SAVED BY LAST RIDDLE; SENDS KASS PACKING FROM NSMQ2019

OWASS finished what they began from Round One and have eliminated Kumasi city rivals, Anglican SHS, Kumasi (KASS) and Osei Kyeretwie SHS (OKESS).

The victory came only in the last second of the game; a true definition of a derby.
Despite OWASS leading throughout the contest, the gaps were so close that none of the supporters across the divide could afford to jubilate ahead of time.
And then it happened in the last round.

OWASS’ lead was toppled by KASS with the first two riddles of Round Five. They couldn’t believe it. What started as a sweet victory turned sour.
Then the third riddle came and OWASS go it and the last riddle came and OWASS rang and gave their answer, YES! The reply to their answer, they regained the lead from KASS and the duel was over.

OWASS won; KASS and OKESS must go back home and prepare a place for the boss.
The final scores were: End of contest: Opoku Ware School: 52 points, Anglican SHS, Kumasi: 51 points, Osei Kyeretwie SHS: 37 points.
