Oh my goodness...what a match between St. Jago High School and Kingston College (KC) this evening!
It was nail-biting to the very last minute...and St. Jago High emerged winners, after the judges took about ten (10) minutes to make their final decision...
Yes friends, St. Jago High School has won TVJ's Schools' Challenge Quiz for 2010!
They beat Kingston College 38 to 35 points in tonight's final.
These two schools were neck and neck in point standings from the 1st section of today's final. (The points are bracketed, below):

[Well, the match ended with St. Jago on 36 points and KC on 35 points.
The judges had to make a decision as to whether or not St. Jago's answer to a Spanish question was correct...and they decided that it was.
This propelled St. Jago to an additional two (2) points, that gave them 38 points to Kingston College's 35].
