Hawassa beats Wolkite, go up to second.

Hawassa beats Wolkite, go up to second.

Hawassa City defeated Wolkite City 1-0 to  leapfrog Wolaitta Dicha and Sidama Coffee  into second position and 7 points behind league leaders, St George.

It was an entertaining BetKing Ethiopia Premier League encounter at the Adama Science and Technology University Stadium 

Chala Teshite and Remedan Yusuf found themselves free in the 25th minute but both failed to convert their chance to put Wolkite  ahead.

Wolkite were then punished by Hawassa 12 minutes later when Biruk Beyene beat the offside trap and as the Wolkite defence retreated, Biruk cooly played into the path of Wondemagen Hailu and the midfielder slotted into the net.

The first half ended 1-0 for Hawassa but Wolkite started the second half exactly how they started the first, on fire.

Wolkite continued their misses to the disappointment of their Coach, Temesgen Dana

Wolkite's loss means they continue to languish in midtable unable to raise their heads amongst the elite Clubs despite possessing of the top marksmen.

Getaneh Kebede was closely marked by Hawassa who know all about his qualities
