grammar / english (10th grade)

Two sentences:
1) The race among the three relay teams was close; none of the three; however, is giving up hope of winning.
2) The race among the three relay teams was close; however, none of the three is giving up hope of winning.
Which is the correct one grammatically? According to our book, the first one it, but in my opinion, the second one is. Why am I wrong? (or why am I right?)

    1 is incorrect because there should not be a semi colon after "three."
