Ethiopia Bunna roars back to title race, Dedebit stumbles


Ethio-Electric snapped a five game winless streak by beating Arbaminch, meaning they are temporarily out of the relegation zone. Dedebit has now lost two out of three but remains in first place and Ethiopia Bunna won at home over Mekelakya.
Once again Ghanaian goal machine Al-Hasen Kalusha was on target and Ethio-Electric returned home with a vital 1-0 victory over Tesgaye K/Mariams Arbaminch, which now sits in last place.
The win meant a lot to head coach Ashenafi Bekele, as the former two time champions are struggling to find form. After losing 1-0 to Hawassa on Wednesday, Dedebit’s title contention is in danger. Hawassa deserved to win the game and the ‘Blues’ are still on top of the table with 32 points but other teams are closing in and the form of their star striker  Getaneh Kebede is in question.
Ethiopia is on a three game winning streak and has shot to second place after a 2-0 victory over Mekelakya.
Eyasu Tameru and Nigerian Sannumi scored and Ethiopia Bunna now has 29 points from 18 matches. With Ethiopia Bunna joining the title race, the league season is expected to fire up to a new momentum.
Bereket Yishak and Yosef Damuye are on the score sheet and Diredawa hammered visitors Woldya 2-0 thanks to Baye Gezahgne’s double strike; Sidama Bunna won 2-0 at home to breath easy. The much expected clash in Gondor between home side Fasil and visitors Jimma AbaJifar ended in a goal less draw thus AbaJifar stays third in goal differences. Mekele versus Saint George and Adama against Wolayta Dicha were postponed due to international matches.
