Olympiakos defeated Apollon Smyrnis 16-7 in Papastratio for the 2nd game, but the news was the debut for many, the top player of all time, Filip Filipovic.
Filipovic, 34, scored six goals in his first match in the men’s A1 polo in a game where the hosts left no room for Apollon. Olympiakos started the game stronger in the first minutes and was ahead with three goals (4-1, 6 ′), with Apollon Smyrnis scoring two goals in the next minutes and closing the gap, with the red and whites being ahead with one goal at the end of the first eight minutes (4-3).
Although the visitors reduced the distance between the two goals in two moments in the second period (6-4, 7-5), Olympiakos extended its lead and led by four goals at the end of the half (9-5). Piraeus had complete control in the third eight minutes and with a partial score of 3-0, was ahead with eight goals at the end of the third eight minutes (12-5). Although the guests were competitive in the fourth period, Olympiakos extended its lead and defeated Apollon Smyrnis 16-7.
The red and whites made it 2/2, as did AEK in the first group, while Apollon Smyrnis fell to 1-1. Piraeus in the next match will face Glyfada on Saturday (16/10), while the team from Nea Smyrni will play on the same day with Aris.
