Goals galore as teams share spoils in Ethiopian Premier League

BetKing Ethiopian Premier League fans were in for a treat at the Adama Science and Technology University Stadium on Sunday as eight goals were scored on a day which saw Adama City and Hambericho as well as Ethiopia Coffee and Bahir Dar City share the spoils.

In the first game, Abdisa Jemal gave Adama City a sixth-minute lead, but Hembercho equalised six minutes later through Befikadu Asresehegn. The game were tied 1-1 at the break with the new boys in the ascendancy.

Hambericho started the second half with a bang and were rewarded with a second goal as Dagim Bekele found the net on 61 minutes. Adama City were stunned but soon gathered themselves and began to fight back.

They probed for a quarter of an hour and eventually found the equaliser through their prodigy Yosef Tarekegn.

The young striker was the revelation of the BetKing Ethiopia Premier League last season, so it was great to see him back among the goals as the two teams settled for an exciting 2-2 draw.

Ethiopia Coffee have been the leading challengers to St George this season, winning both of their opening games.

However, they were held to a 2-2 draw on Sunday by Bahir Dar City, who finished second last season. It was a tight game that remained goalless for the first 45 minutes but came alive in stoppage time.

Chala Teshita gave Ethiopia Coffee the lead in the first minute of added time, but Bahir Dar equalised immediately through Cherinet Gugsa to take the game to 1-1 at halftime.

Ethiopia Coffee started the second half like a house on fire and shot ahead in the 47th minute with a goal by Biruk Beyene. Bahir Dar though equalised 20 minutes later as Fitsum Tilahun struck in the 67th minute to earn his side a draw.
