Addis Ababa – Week 17 of the Ethiopian Premier League (EPL) saw defending champions Kedus Giorgis (St. George) extend their lead with a 3-2 victory over their nearest and city rival Dedebit FC here today.

The two teams went to their dressing rooms with Giorgis leading 2-0 at half-time thanks to goals from national team striker Salhadin Said (15) and Mentesenot Adane (31′).
