The deafeat of the two-time winners of the National Science and Maths Quiz, Mfantsipim School has gotten social media buzzing after Kumasi Academy showed them the exit door in the 2020 edition of the contest.
The School which prides itself with thinking ahead obviously did not see the ‘Kumerica’ boys coming as they ended the contest 18 points behind the winners.
Kumasi Academy finished as shark slayers with 53 points while St. Mary’s ended the contest with 30 points.
This means the Cape Coast-based Mfantsipim School will start their 2021 journey from the regional qualifiers again.
The 1/8th stage of the contest appears to be the nemesis of the Kwabotwe boys as they have been kicked out two years in a row at that stage of the competition.
Last year, they were dealt a hefty blow by arch city rivals St. Augustine’s College who eventually won the competition in style.
The boys from the Garden City made their intentions clear right from the onset as they set themselves apart from the pack scoring 20 points against Mfantsipim School’s 11 points and St. Mary’s SHS 9 points.
