The Santas had an opportunity to make a huge statement with their win and they did. They got the last riddle to top-up their points to 41.

The auditorium erupted with the Adisadel College anthem as the skies read black and white. The Zebras have made a majestic crossing for the third time, with a cool GH₵ 4,000.00 in their pockets courtesy of GOIL PLC.
