The 2011/12 National County Sports Meet (NCSM) continued Thursday, December 29, 2011 with Grand Bassa County walking away with a 2-1 victory over Grand Gedeh County at the Samuel Kanyan Doe Sports Stadium (SKD) in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.
The win was a big boast for Grand Bassa County, which prior to the match, had failed on three occasions to get a win or draw over the Grand Gedians.
It can be recalled that Grand Gedeh County defeated Grand Bassa County 1-0 in the Grand Final of the 1988 Competition.
Grand Bassa County again went down to Grand Gedeh County 3-2 in the Quarter Finals of the 2006/07 NCSM.
Grand Bassa also suffered a painful 2-1 defeat to Grand Gedeh County in the Semi Finals of the 2010/11 Tournament.
Grand Gedeh County tried to repeat history by going upfront in the first 15 minutes of the encounter.
She could have scored more in the first half, but missed all of her glorious opportunities.
However, the Bassaians came back strongly in the second period to score two goals to send the Grand Gedians out of the competition.
