Saint George takes over premier league top spot

Four goals in five consecutive matches Adane Girma stirs Saint George to premier league top spot for the first time so far in the season. Dedbit takes third spot after a home win over Hawassa. Getaneh kebede’s goal tally reached eleven.
First half opening goal through Shimeles Bekele, the club’s leading scorer Adane Girma sealed the 2-0 victory over Defense Force to help his side take over the league table driving seat with 27 points with a game in hand. Two points clear of Electric that had been on top for the past months Saint’s first round final match against Air Force takes place in Diredawa Town following EFF’s decision. Defense Force finished the first round with recently unprecedented second from bottom of the table supporters so worried it may be too late for survival. Despite having the best strike force the Army side’s record shows just three wins and three draws out of 13 matches.
In the mid week other match Dedebit FC defeated visitors Hawassa Town with a breath taking single goal from Getaneh Kebede during the final minutes of the showdown. First season with the side head coach Zelalem Shiferaw is hardly to win club supporter’s hearts after failing to fill the boot left by former head coach Kemal Mohammed currently with National League Ledetta Nyala. Getaneh’s long range strike took Dedebit to third place in the table with 23 points two down from second place Electric and himself taking the league’s top scorer spot with 11 goals from 13 matches followed behind by Ethiopian Coffee’s Medhane Tadesse with ten Fitsum G/Hiwot of Mugher Cement with eight.
