Playing at home and in front of their adoring fans, no one suspected that the visiting Sebeta City team will give the Saints a hard time. But thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s exactly what happened as the two teams played to a 1-1 draw.
Sebeta City led 1-0 at half-time thanks to Beniam AssefaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s goal. St. George got the equalizer through their midfielder Yonatan Berhane.
In the second match of the double header, Dedebit FC defeated Hawassa City 4-2, with two goals coming from their strikers Getaneh Kebede, Tadele Mengesha and another from Salif Gabriel, the Ghanaian international. Ashenafi Adem scored both Hawassa CityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s goals.
St. George will need to regroup when they face Lideta Nyala in Week 2 this Saturday.
