    Use of evidence: 1.7 4.5
    Delivery skill: 3 3
    Coherence of arguments: 4.8 4.2
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.3 4.5
    Identification of key points: 4.1 4.6
    Comments: I liked your points and your use of morals in the debate. However, I feel you needed more evidence as well as a better structure to your speeches. You didn't have much offense in the end of the round. Your contextual evidence was very persuasive, allowed for clear points, and showed a strong understanding of the topic. I do wish that the responses to the pro arguments would be more extensive with some more offense as well.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Jordan Knight

    Reason for Decision:

    Neg showed a clear point that the pro team ignored: if we force them to stop then why don't we stop the killing of cows, chickens, etc. also, the neg team had clear delivery which is something the pro team lacked. Lastly and perhaps most importantly, neg had offense in the round that pro ignored. Good job to both teams!
