Two second half goals from the substitute Karagiannis gave Lamia the 2-1 victory over Agrotikos Asteras to go atop the Football League standings. Trikala and Anagennisi Karditsas’s fixture was postponed until tomorrow due to the heavy snowfall.
Two in form teams of the Football League, both looking for promotion at the end of the season, faced off as Lmaia hosted Agrotikos Asteras. The difference in the match was second half substitute Karagiannis, who scored in the 63rd and 80th minutes to give his side the 2-1 victory over Agrotikos Asteras.
The 23-year old brilliantly brought the ball down with his chest, setting himself up in front of goal, to open the scoring midway through the second half. With 10 minutes remaining, the same player tapped the ball into the back of the net from close-range to seal all three points for the hosts. A late consolation goal from the visitors shaped the final score at 2-1.
Lamia now sit first in the standings with 22 points having played one game compared to second placed Apollon Smyrnis (play tomorrow against Acharnaikos). Agrotikos Asteras trail the league leaders by six points.
