The Cape Coast giants were stunned by Swedru SHS and a three-point margin saw them sip tea on the sidelines for a year.
Which other schools contested St Augustine’s today?
Academy of Christ the King who was eliminated by Ho-based Mawuli School in the one-eighth stage in 2018 placed third.
Their 21 points would keep them company until next year, where they can try again. But for 2019, the road has come to an end for them.
Komenda SHTS and Twifo Praso scored eight and six points respectively.
