Firelands Challenge Round III

Difficult Round in Firelands Challenge

Norwalk Bumps Huron in the Standings

Most of the teams in the Firelands Challenge program saw their scores drop in a difficult series of matches that concluded on Friday.  Even the standings leaders saw their scores drop from prior matches.  Only the team from Danbury was able to improve upon a prior high score.

Questions that posed the most difficulty for the teams came from categories on Vocabulary (finding meanings for terms such as “travesty”), Physical Science (chemical reactions), and American History (pacesetting television shows of the 1950’s).  The teams had success in the categories of World History (musical arts of the Enlightenment Era) and U.S. Government (the executive branch).

Teams winning their Round III matches and their match scores are:

  • Perkins (28)
  • Willard (40)
  • Margaretta (24)
  • Bellevue (34)
  • Oak Harbor (16)
  • Edison (42)

Norwalk posted a score of 35 points to knock Huron out of the top five teams.  Huron dropped into sixth place.

The top five teams and their scores after Round III are:

  • Edison                   150
  • Willard                  136
  • Perkins                  123
  • Bellevue                118
  • Norwalk                114                        

Matches will resume on November 11.  Three matches will be held at EHOVE.
