After a winning start to the Football League season, Apollon Pontou dropped points on matchday two after playing to a goalless draw against Sparti. The hosts had the better opportunities in the 90 minutes of play, but the Lakones held strong to grab an important point on the road.
Like Apollon Pontou, OFI also failed to go two for two in the Football League season with a disappointing goalless draw away to Anagennisi Karditsas. The draw sees OFI fall behind in the standings early on and the Cretan side will look to bounce back on matchday three if they want to stay on pace for promotion.
Doxa Dramas’ great start continued on Sunday as they defeated Aiginiakos 0:2 on the road. Petropoulos opened the scoring just before the halftime break and Mastoukas doubled his side’s lead three minutes after the restart. Doxa Drama sit with six points from their first two matches.
The Cretan derby between Ergotelis and AOX Kissamikos ended in a 1-1 draw. Ergotelis took the lead late in the first half with Cuypers (43) and all seemed to be going in favor of the Irakleio side when AOX Kissamikos were left with 10-men after Fouasis was handed a second yellow card and was sent off. However, the visitors fought on and scrambled an equaliser in the 80th minute with Saliakas to earn a point the road.
