Yirgalem-Ã‚Â Ethiopian Premier League (EPL) defending champions St. George failed to capitalize on the opportunity to get all three points from Sidama Coffee as it was held to a scoreless draw here today.
This was the second scoreless draw in a row for St. George after the team was also held to a 0-0 tie by Mugher Cement in Assela last week. However, both were away matches.
Writing on his FaceBook page, Ermias Amare said that the match was dull and boring, according to his sources in Yirgalem.
After todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s match, St. George remains in 13th place with 10 points from 10 matches, while Sidama Coffee maintains 12th but with 11 matches.
St. GeorgeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s remaining match will be against Harar Brewery next Friday in Addis Ababa.
Matches in Hand
St. George and Dedebit FC had a number of their matches postponed during the CECAFA Challenge Cup as both teams had 5 players each with the national squad.
League officials have earlier this month temporarily suspended the championship so that the two sides can catch up with the rest of the league teams.
