Monrovia - Maryland County whipped Nimba County 2-0 in the last semi-finals of the 2016/2017 National County Sports Meet at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) on January 11. Maryland County, headed by coach Emmanuel Baffoe, truly deserved her victory even though she was not good on the ball especially in the area of possession as compare to Nimba County but they carried on several goal attempts and two came to reality. Maryland County lost total possession to Nimba but their defense maintained a perfect denial up to the 64th minute when Toe shot travelled near the goal post. Gbotoe could have scored the equalizer for Nimba in the 73rd minute from a tactical pass received from a teammate but the defense of Maryland County denied him from reaching the ball. In kickball, Margibi County beat Grand Bassa County by three to two home runs in the semi-finals and will meet defending champions Nimba in Sunday’s grand finale while Maryland County and Montserrado County will meet in football at the ATS.
