Grand Bassa County final hope of progressing to the knock out stage of the National County Sports meet has been dashed as Margibi County won the protest which was filed against them by Port City Boys.
Bassa complained to the appeal team of the National County Sports meet recently that Margibi featured more senior players in the tournament a violation of the Competition rules but after careful and professional revision of the matter by the appeal team it was officially resolved that Margibi was in no violation of the rules as claimed by Grand Bassa County.
The decision by the appeal team of the National County Sports meet laid to rest the matter as the only reliance of Grand Bassa for 2017/2018 participation of the tournament is over.
Bassa Football team is now out of the Competition while their kickball team will be the County’s only representative to Monrovia.
Meanwhile Margibi can now take in fresh and comfortable air after winning the protest and will now join defending Champions Montserrado in the quarterfinal stage of the competition.
The draw for the knock out stage of the tournament will be released soon as the kick off will begin April 14,2018 at the refurbished SKD sports complex in Paynesville City.
