As depicted by the score, the victory was a hard-fought-for one as it took the champion more works to break down the resilient Grand Kru County defensive system.
Grand Bassa, who won the kickball championship two times in succession, found it increasingly difficult throughout the entire game with the only home of the match scored in the 2nd inning by the captain.
Aside from scoring the only home, Captain Louise was also inspirational to the team, while the team itself remained committed and ready to advance further.
Grand Kru on the other hand, had better chance to equalize the score or even take the lead just before half time, but squandered numerous opportunities in the third inning. With three on base and nothing being out, it was the biggest advantage of the match, but poor strategy from the technical team coupled with poor attacking cost them the defeat.
In the other match of the day, Margibi County scored the highest homes of the tournament so far with a 14-1 thrashing of River Gee County.
The “Gibians,” who finished as group winners in Group A, took a comfortable 10-0 lead before the break and scored additional four in the last two innings to inflict the massive defeat on River Gee, who was playing in the quarter finals of the kickball category for her first time.
In-form midfielder Tete Wise, veteran captain Tuse Myers, Excelia Saydee, experienced pitcher Mariah Zuo and others were others were on top of their game as the last year finalist moved into the last four with that overwhelming victory.
It means that defending champions Gran Bassa will face the winner between Lofa and Bomi match, while Margibi will lock horns with the winner between Montserrado and Bong Counties.
