The streets of the port-city of Buchanan in Grand Bassa were scenes of debater over the county inability to qualify from the Preliminary stage of the ongoing 2018 County meet. The huge debate in every corner of the city started after the 2016 champion were narrowly defeated by the Sunshine Boys of Maryland county with one goal to zero in Grand Gedeh County.
Team Bassa was seen as one of the favorites for the 55th edition of the national county meet tournament but his dream was cut short by Maryland on Saturday December 22, 2018.
Many sons and daughters of Bassa could not hold back their frustration and disappointment in the they believed would have restored their past winning spirit at the national county meet.
Ace Radio Broadcast Journalist and one of Bassa finest football commentator, Terry wholquoi Yeahger who served Bassa for several years took to social media to express his disappointment and frustration.
“Bassa Football team is out, my disappointment”
We provided commentaries for our native land and won twice for two seasons they dropped us and we are not winning, I’m wondering what’s happening?
The team hired to restore Bassa to its past winning spirit are all professionals, but can figure out what’s happening?
My tears of not seeing my native land amongst other Counties in Monrovia is a concern for other sons and daughters.
Thanks to Mr. Hector Mulbah who provided us the opportunity to serve our county during our winning days.
My hope is to have Grand Bassa County celebrate other trophies.” Yeahgar posted on facebook page.
Yeahgar like many sons and daughters of Bassa will have to live with the hard reality that their red, white and blue boys will be missed at the SKD. The defeat of Grand Bassa County is a clear message to other counties that depend on past glory, the 55th edition of the county meet will put out many surprises as every county is determined to win the Championship
