In Group II matches played at the Sanniquellie Sports Stadium, Nimba defeated Rivercess 2-0 to move on top of Group II table. A goal apiece from mark Yalah and David Tuazama in the first half were enough to seal Nimba County’s win. With the win, Nimba County moved in first place at 4 points from two matches. In the other Group II match, Montserrado and Sinoe played to a 0-0 draw.
In Group III, Grand Gedeh were eliminated after their 0-1 loss to Maryland at the Harper Sports Stadium. The game was abandoned with four minutes to play due to pitch invasion after Grand Gedeh fans felt they were denied a penalty.
