- Platanias Wins SuperLeague Opener -


Kerkyra 0 - 1 Platanias
Giakoumakis 11'

Platanias defeated Kerkyra 0-1 in the opening match of this year’s SuperLeague Season. The only goal of the game came in the 11th minute with Giakoumakis.

Platanias got off to a great start in the 2016-2017 SuperLeague with a 0-1 win away to Kerkyra. The Cretan club was the better side in the first half and the opening goal was scored in the 11th minute by Giakoumakis. The cross was played in and a “tsaf” from Venetis set up Giakoumakis for the opener. Kerkyra was much better in the second half and began to press for the equalizer, but wasted chances to score. With the score remaining 0-1 at the final whistle the SuperLeague “new boys” were defeated in their return to the Greek First Division.

Next week Platanias will host Levadiakos while Kerkyra will play at home to the SuperLeague's other promoted side, Larissa.
