One of Accra’s most popular schools, De Youngster’s International School have been sent packing by Kotoka JHS at the Round of sixteen of the Junior Sharks.
De Youngster’s came into The Sharks Season as one of the best schools in Accra, but their reputation failed to manifest in the competition.
Truth be told, the Kanda-based school was lacklustre in their Round of 24 contest, scrapping through by a mere forty points against La Wireless 2.
Coming up against Kotoka JHS, a seeded school of Junior Sharks Season 4, De Youngster’s had to scale up, if progression into the next Round was to be guaranteed.
They did up the ante, but the Burma Camp school, as sharp as a surgeon’s razor, cut De Youngster’s to size and progressed to the quarter finals at their expense.
Let’s relive the action, round-by-round.
De Youngster’s looked very promising in Round 1, pulling comfortably ahead with a twenty(20) points difference.
The buoyant display in Round 1 somehow fizzled in inexplicable fashion, as De Youngster’s could garner a mere five(5) points in Round 2.
Kotoka on the other hand were firmly in the driving seat in this Round, amassing a gargantuan fifty-five(55) points.
The STEM Round, turned out to be another hotly contested round, with both schools determined to stamp their authority in the contest.
But once again, it was Kotoka JHS’s Abubakar who single-handedly buzzed with three correct answers to inch them closer to another seeded placement and perhaps a clearer shot at the ultimate.
