Dicha and St George wiped off Confederation Cup

Wolayta Dicha’s Confederation Cup adventures came to an end on Wednesday after the aggregate 2-1 defeat to Young Africa of Tanzania while Kidus Giorgis bowed out of Confederation Cup group stage following a penalty shootout defeat to Congolese outfit KARA Brazzaville.
Though Togolese Jaco Arafat opened the score sheet just two minutes in to the game and the vociferous home crowed stayed on tip toe all through ninety minutes at Hawassa international stadium, the visitors gallantly defended their goal denying a second goal to the home side. Determined Dicha dominated ball possession as well created some golden goal chances but failed to find the back of the net. Young Africa’s lone striker Oberu Chiriwa had had two golden chances that he missed from close range.
Young Africa that knocked out Ethiopia Bunna some twenty years back made it again over Wolayta Dicha with a 2-1 victory. “Had it not been for lack of experience, I believe the players had the capacity to join the group stage” remarked Dicha head coach Zenebe Fiseha after the game.
Kidus Giorgis’s big dream of a second successive Confederation Cup group stage failed to come true after a penalty shootout loss to home side Kara. The visitors stood strong until the 34thminute when Ngoma Meebo scored for the home side making the aggregate result to one all. With Ethiopian Mentsenot Adane and Behailu Assefa missing from the spot kick, Kara managed a 6-4 aggregate victory to join the group stage that brings together 16 sides in to four groups.
