With the usual suspect, Mario Ilias and others, Ethnikis achieved a valuable victory
A great victory for Ethnikos Achnas who prevailed 3-0 against Karmiotissa at home. Marios Ilias scored for the refugee team in the 27th minute, Iriodo in the 47th minute and Pehlivanis in the 85th minute. With this victory, Ethnikis reached 5 points, while Karmiotissa remained at 1.
The match started with a lot of passion from both teams, however the first few minutes were more of an identifying nature. The home team was the one that tried to impose its own pace, maintaining possession of the ball. The first final came in the 9th minute of the match, when Ethnikis Achnas threatened with Lomotei who failed to find a target from a good position near the area. In the following minutes, the two teams were satisfied with the same role without anything special until the 27th minute of the match. In that minute, Ethnikos Achnas managed to open the scoring with Marios Ilias, who after Christofis's shot and the unstable save of the Karmiotissa goalkeeper took the football “rebound” to send the ball. Karmiotissa looked for an immediate reaction and in the 32nd minute of the match, she reached the goal with Kovacevic, but this was never counted due to offside. Five minutes later, Theodorou's effort was stopped by Bogatinov, while in the 42nd minute, Theodorou and Peratikos clashed head-to-head, with the latter being sent off with a forced substitution. This is how the first half ended.
The second half started in the best way for Ethniki Achnas as only in the 47th minute and after executing a corner, Iriodo scored 2-0 with a header. A result which certainly brought smiles to everyone on the bench of Ethnikos, in contrast to that of Karmiotissa, as Brandou strongly expressed his complaints to his players. The reaction from Karmiotissa came in the 52nd minute when Katsantonis threatened from a good position, but Bogadinov once again said no. In the following minutes, Karmiotissa kept the ball and fought to find the lanes towards Bogadinov's goal, however, on the part of Ethnikos, there was concentration and a good defensive function. It is characteristic that the next final came in the 60th minute with Castro's shot going wide. Despite Karmiotissa's effort, the big phase came for Ethnikos. Specifically, in the 69th minute, Lipski found the space and time for the shot, and after attempting it, the ball stopped on the post. Ten minutes later Benezet found himself in a favorable position in the area, but his shot was hopelessly wide. The icing on the cake came from Pehlivanis in the 85th minute when, in an exemplary counterattack, he found himself in the area of Karmiotissa, placing correctly for the 3-0. This was also the last phase recorded in the match, with Ethnikos justly reaching victory and all three points.
