Ethiopia CECAFA 2013

Nairobi, Kenya – The Walyas Antelopes of Ethiopia advanced to the quarter-final stage of the 2013 GOtv CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup following a 2-0 victory over South Sudan here today.

The result puts them on top of Group A on 7 points with the second game involving Kenya and Zanzibar to come at the same arena.

Sewnet Bishaw’s team were held to a goal less first half and only managed to take the lead through Yousuf Yassin, 7 minutes after second half resumption while a late, Biruk Kalbore strike sealed South Sudan’s fate.

The loss vanished South Sudan’s outside chance of reaching quarters as best losers. Ethiopia drew goal less with Kenya and beat Zanzibar 3-1 while South Sudan lost their opening two games to Zanzibar 2-1 and Kenya (3-1).
