It was a battle of unbeaten teams, as both Olympiacos and Vouliagmeni came into the contest with 3-0 records this year. The two teams were in a three-way tie for first place with Apollon Smyrnis.
Olympiacos never looked like losing, as the home team cruised to a 3-1 lead after the first period, and a 7-2 lead at halftime. They would then outscore Vouliagmeni 4-2 and 5-3 in the third and fourth periods to take the game 16-7.
Perhaps the key to victory was the fact that Olympiacos went 6/10 when having a one man advantage, whereas Vouliagmeni couldn’t convert their chances and went 3/13. The leading scorers for Olympiacos were Greek national team players Ioannis Fountoulis, Alexandros Gounas, and Emmanouil Mylonakis, each scoring three goals.
In next week’s games, Olympiacos will travel to Chios to play against AO Chiou, and Vouliagmeni will hope to get back on track as they host Palaio Faliro.
