New heroines rising in Adama, Akaki-Kality and Kidst Mariam

The woman’s Premiere League is becoming more competitive and spectators are starting to take notice. Even though traditional powers like Dedebit FC and Ethiopia NegedBank still lead their divisions, Adama Town, Kidist Mary University College and Akaki-Kality are coming on strong.

Diredawa got past Adama 1-0 to keep pace with group leader Dedebit FC. They now sit in 3rd place with 13 points. Adama had won six games and their only loss, before this, came at the hands of Dedebit. They now are in 2nd place with 15 points, six points away from Dedebit who has 21 in seven games.

Losa Abera and Meskerem Kanko netted goals and Dedebit earned a hard fought victory over Mekelakya to take home all three points. Mekelakya is fourth with 12 points.

Group “B” surprise Akaki-Kaliti is becoming famous not only for their wins but for their entertaining football. An amazing hat-trick by the seasons’ new discovery Bezawit Negussie, Akaki-Kality defeated Saint Mary University 3-0. It looks like another good team is emerging on the outskirts of  Addis Ababa.

Ethiopia NegedBank still dominates the group. They won a big game against Addis Ababa Town under former Dedebit head coach Asrat Abate. Signing well experienced players like Tutu Belay and Olembe, Asrat was expected to rattle the heavy weights but Berhanu Gizaw’s goal let Neged Bank remain in control. Undefeated NegedBank is leading the group with 19 points while Hawassa Town, remained second with 13 points in seven matches. Saint Mary College is fourth with 10 points.
