County Meet Final Set for January 12

The postponement of the football and kickball quarter-finals in the 2013/2014 National County Meet from Sunday, January 5th to Sunday, January 12th has been greeted with uncompromising reaction with stakeholders, describing the deferment as an extra and unnecessary burden.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports, through the Organizing Committee, headed by Deputy Sports Minister Dionysius Sebwe a week ago postponed the quarter-finals, owing to the volume of protests.

Sinoe: An Unfed Giant in the Quarter Finals

Sinoe County is amongst the eight teams for the quarter finals amidst lack of moral and financial supports and protests --- on the eve to the start of Group’s D qualifying matches in Greenville --- the players deserted their camp because of lack of ‘per diems.’

The U$300 each promised the players were deferred to Saturday, three days after the tournament.

Sinoe Hits with Double Protests

Rivercess and Gbarpolu Counties have protested against Sinoe County for the fielding of an ‘ineligible player’ in the ongoing Group D preliminary rounds in Greenville, Sinoe County.

The two counties complained that striker Boye Bailey played in the First Division League for Exodus FC in 2007 in the Liberia Football Association (LFA) league, which contradicts the rules and regulations governing the 2013/201 National County Meet.

Sinoe 2nd on Group D in County Meet Soccer

Sinoe County is second on Group D with four points after defeating Rivercess 2-1 yesterday morning here in Greenville. The game was rescheduled from Tuesday due to a heavy down pour.

Nimba County now leads the group with 6 points. The preliminary rounds end today with decisive encounters between Sinoe and Nimba, along with Gbarpolu and Rivercess.

A draw or a win will qualify Sinoe County and a defeat will determine her qualification if Gbarpolu loses to Rivercess.

If Gbarpolu, 3rd on the table, wins Rivercess will qualify in goal-aggregate.

Sinoe, Gbarpolu in Goalless Draw

Thousands of Sinoe County supporters, including Superintendent J. Milton Teahjay were on Sunday disappointed over the goalless draw in the football match and defeat in the kickball derby on their home soil.
Teahjay’s gloomy expression, in his green-and-white tee-shirt with the inscriptions ‘Sinoe Mandela’ at the front and ‘Chief Patron’ on the back spoke volume of his discontent.

Sinoe County failed to rattle the net despite several chances and ‘more ball possession,’ through Boye Bouley, Adolphus and Konwohn Karblee.
