Dedebit were held to a one all draw against ArbaMinch Ketema. Nigerian striker Samuel Sanumi gave Dedebit the lead in 21st minute but ArbaMinch dominated the rest of the game and grabbed a 1-1 draw. Teshome Tadesse restored parity as he struck a rebound 2 minutes after Dedebit’s lead. Dedebit striker Dawit Fikadu shocked the Addis Ababa Stadium faithful as he missed an empty goal after he rounded the keeper.
Adane Girma scored two as Kidus Giorgis ruined 10 man Wolaitta Dicha 3-0. Adane converted a dubious penalty early in the second half. The veteran then doubled the lead with an excellent finish from range.
