Ethiopia Football: Ethiopian Coffee clinches 1st EPL Title
Addis Ababa Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Ethiopian Coffee FC clinched its first Ethiopian Premier League title in 13 years after defeating Mugher Cement 2-0 here today.
Menyahel Teshome (5′) and Medhane Tadesse (46′) scored the goals.
Ethiopian Coffee FC, which was founded 28 years ago, clinched the title with 61 points, followed by St. George (60 points) and Dedebit FC (58 points).
Although Coffee dominated and could have scored more goals in the first half, the two teams went into the dressing room with Mugher trailing 1-0.
Coffee created many chances but the players were caught offside on many occasions as they were too eager to score.
Mugher Cement did not pose any threat to Ethiopian Coffee and it was Medhane Tadesse who sealed his teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s victory when he scored the second goal just 30 seconds into the start of the second half.
Dedebit vs Defence
Earlier in the day, Dedebit FC beat Defence Force 5-2 with Getaneh Kebede scoring a couple, and thus bringing his seasonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tally to 20 goals, the same as Adane Girma of St. George.
