Ethiopia Bunna, breathing hot behind league leaders


Coming back with a goal down, visiting Commercial Bank defeated Hawassa Town,narrowing the gap between them and run away league leader Saint George.
Ethiopian Bunna appeared to have shrugged-off the depression as they climbed up the Premier League table.
In his very first season with Commercial Bank, Head Coach Tsegaye K/Mariam managed to steer the side to an unprecedented high in the standings; collecting 22 points from 11 matches.
In the latest match on Tuesday, Banks travelled to Hawassa and grabbed a 2-1 away victory extending its undefeated run to ten matches. The last time The Lords lost was during the season opening 4-0 home drubbing from new comers Wolyta Dicha.
With three wins in a row, Ethiopia Bunna is riding high after a 2-1 victory over Insurance FC last weekend. Dawit Estifanos scored a breathtaking equalizer from a long free kick, followed by EfremAshamo’s winner goal.
Ethiopia Bunna now sits 4th on the table with 16 points from nine matches.
The return of Bulgarian Head Coach Stoykov after months of suspension seemed to pay-off for Electric FC, as they collected four points from two matches: a win over Insurance followed by a hard earned 1-1 draw with Mekelakya during the mid week.
Abraham Gidey gave the Army side an early lead but that was cancelled out by a spectacular equalizer to help The Power House snatch a life saving single point.
With two wins, three draws and six defeats, Electric camps two points above bottom of the table Insurance FC, currently the hottest favorite for  relegation. Many started speculating that veteran Coach Asrat Haile could soon walk out of the nasty situation as he once did with Electric FC.
Saint George leads the table far from the pack with 30 points and a game in hand while Banks is in second with eight points down, while Mekelakya and Ethiopia Bunna are third and fourth respectively, each with 16 points but  there is a goal differential.
Considering the stadium attendance, football fans appear to be frustrated by the on-off season as well as  the title being almost in Saint’s bag even before the end of first round.
