The second match day of the Ethiopian Higher League took place on Thursday and Friday across the three different groups.
Many of the games in this group ended with narrow score lines and very few goals to talk about.
Woldia Ketema managed to make it two wins out of two by beating Wollo Kombolcha. The goals came from Bedir Nurhussien as he converted from the spot and Biniyam Teumelisan. Nigid Bank drew 0-0 with Butajira Ketema. Sebeta Ketema and Sendafa Beke suffered consecutive defeats losing to Batu Ketema and Gamo Chencha, respectively .
The game between Halaba Ketema and Durame Ketema was an exciting tie and arguably match of the week. The game was not interrupted with fouls and great passage of play was on show. The game ended with a 2-1 win for Halaba Ketema.
The remaining game in this group saw Akaki Kaliti beat Addis Ketema 1-0.
Nekemte Ketema beat Boditi Ketema 3-2 in a five goal thriller while Shashemene Ketema registered a 1-0 win over Kirkos. Both winning teams now have 6 points from 2 games.
