Drubbing bottom of the table Wello Kombolcha by a 3-0 score line, Bahirdar is firmly in control of the “Group A” top spot four points clear of second place Shere-Endeselassie which managed a 1-0 home win over visitors Ethiopian Construction Works Corporation (ECWC).
It is a moral boosting start for former Ethiopia Bunna, Sebeta and Hadiya-Hosana Coach Paulos Getachew popularly known “Mango” that appeared to discover the very right chemistry of promotion in to the upper tier in the coming season. Eleven wins, five draws and a single defeat so far in the season, the hot favorite to win the group Bahirdar is leading the table with 38 points that is four points clear of second place Shere-Endaselassie.

Top spot strong contender Addis Ababa’s home defeat could mean the dream of steering back to the Premier League after just a single season is in jeopardy. A shocking last minute winner through coming from the bench Ashenafi Meteku, Coach Asrat Abate and company could do nothing about it, except walking out of the field head down. Addis Ababa is currently third with 33 points followed by Burayuand Sebeta each with 28 points.
