Semere Hafetay leads the top scorers’ chart


Three goals in two matches including the braid in his premier league away debut match, Welwalo Adigrat’s rising striker Semere Haftay is already rubbing shoulders with other two players in the top scorers’ driving seat. Forty five goals in three fixtures appears a good omen for football fans that are frustrated for the goal draught.
Newly discovered striker Semere is player of the moment at league leaders Welwalo scoring three important goals a braid in defeating strong side Sebeta Town and another one against Welayta Dicha in the 2-1 home win. Coming from the bench to score the braid in the away match against Sebeta is what makes the teenager so special. “My dream is to score more goals to help my team win each matches” Semere told reporters. The combination of young Semere along with two goals hero Junies Nanjibu and Etamuna Kemuyeni is much anticipated this season.
One of the best target men discovered last season, Fasil Town’s striker Mujib Kasim is the first player of the new season to grab a hat trick in the 5-0 home victory over visitors Diredawa Town. “Though it appears a slow start be assured we are strong title contenders” Mujib remarked after the unexpected away defeat to new comers Wolkite Town.
Two goals in the 4-1 home victory over Sehul-Shere and the away winning goal over home side Jimma AbaJifar, Addis Gedey has already bagged three goals in three matches. The Sidama Coffee one man strike force Addis appeared to be in “Business as usual” and considered a serious contender for the season’s top scorer accolade.
