Saint George tops EPL table for first time this season


Saint George pushed-off arch rival Ethiopia Bunna to claim the Premier League top spot with two points clear. The title contention appears to be among nine sides including tenth in the table Jimma Aba JIfar.
After a 1-0 away victory over Welwalo-Adigrat, Saint George took control of the driver’s seat for the first time this season. With, seven wins, three draws and two defeats “The Horse Riders” are in control of the table with 24 points from 12 matches they are two points clear from Ethiopia Bunna with 22 points from 13 matches. The return of Salahadin Said and Getaneh Kebede appeared to be the turning point. They have not lost since the fourth week of the season.
Though Ethiopia Bunna and Hawassa are second and third in the table they played all 13 fixtures while those behind have extra games in hand. With four consecutive wins including the 3-1 home victory over Sidama Bunna, Mekele Seba-Enderta is fifth in the table just two points down but three matches in hand while Sidama and Fasil are also in the race each with twenty points from eleven matches.
Adama is sitting seventh with 17 points from 12 matches and in poor form Baherdar has two matches in hand yet is eighth in the table with 17 points. Add to the list defending champion Jimma Aba Jifar currently tenth in the table with 12 points yet five matches in hand. If the above mentioned sides manage to win their remaining games, Ethiopia Bunna might land in mid table
