Olympiacos CFP kept their noses in front of championship rivals Panathinaikos FC at the top of the Hellenic National League with a 2-1 away win over Kallithea FC on Sunday.
Olympiacos took the lead through a headed goal by central defender Spyros Vallas before Kallithea levelled on the hour through Achilleas Angelopoulos. However, eight minutes later an own goal by Giorgos Koulakiotis sealed a win for the league leaders.
Panathinaikos FC remain in close pursuit after securing their ninth consecutive victory by defeating visiting Egaleo FC 2-0. Cyprus international Michalis Konstantinou opened the scoring and Ezequiel Gonález scored the second with a left-footed strike; his first goal since arriving in Greece.
PAOK tighten grip
FC PAOK maintained their grip on third with a 2-0 defeat of OFI Crete. Giasemakis Giasemi scored the first after excellent work by Christos Maladenis before Dimitris Salpingidis doubled the lead with a shot from long range.
AEK Athens FC could even afford to miss a penalty as they secured their first victory under new coach Ilie Dumitrescu, beating FC Aris Thessaloniki 1-0. Vassilis Tsiartas was guilty of the 53rd-minute miss from the spot but Kofi Amponsah saved his blushes with a well-taken header.
Promoted Halkidona FC secured their fourth successive win as they triumphed 1-0 at Ionikos FC with top-scorer Giorgos Zaharopoulos again on the scoresheet. Panionios NFC were equally impressive, winning 3-0 at Iraklis FC.
In Sunday's other action, Xanthi FC won 3-1 at Akratitos FC with Stelios Sfakianakis scoring the crucial third in stoppage time, while Proodeftiki FC secured a valuable 2-0 home win against Paniliakos FC.
