|OFI||3 - 0||Doxa Dramas|
|Manos 30', 37'
Despite huge financial problems surrounding OFI, the Cretans continued their excellent form in the Football League with a confident 3:0 dispatching of Doxa Dramas in Heraklion.
Two superb goals lit up the match against Doxa, as a motivated looking OFI team had too much for their struggling opponents. Doxa Dramas are now without a win in their past five games, losing two of them.
Dimitrios Manos got the ball rolling on 30 minutes, bursting inside the penalty area before lashing a powerful attempt into the left corner. The same player then doubled OFI’s advantage moments later, catching the goalkeeper cold with a simply wonderful half-volley from long distance. A goal to savour.
Fellow forward Vasilios Koutsianikoulis made the victory safe for OFI early in the second half, curling an excellent effort past the goaltender’s flailing dive. As a result of this 3:0 victory, OFI stay in third position of the Football League, five points behind leaders Aris Thessaloniki. Doxa Dramas occupy sixth place with sixteen points on the board.
