With a buzzerbeater from Vafeas, Kifisia wins a doubles title over Panachaiki 2-1 in Patras



Kifisia scored the most important brace in his bid to win this year’s championship with a 2-1 win over Panachaiki. Vafeas scored with a left-click volley for the visitors in the 95th minute, stopping his team at +5 from Kallithea four contests before the final.

A buzzer racket from Nikos Vafeas with a left-foot volley in the fifth minute of added time saw Kifisia defeat Panachaiki 2-1 in Patras on Monday afternoon, earning the key three points in their bid to win this year’s league and promotion Stoiximan Super League.

After the double in Patras, Kifisia held the difference with Kallithea at +5 four games before the final and emerges as the clear favorite for first place. After Vafea’s goal, tensions erupted between the footballers of the two teams on the pitch at Patras Stadium.

The game started on the best of omens for the Northern Suburbs team, who took the lead in the 9th minute with a long-range effort by Talal who defeated Kolovouris.

The home side looked for the equalizer and found it in the 32nd minute when Bourlakis fired the rebound from close range after being pursued by Anagnostopoulos to equalize to make it 1-1.

In the second half, Kifisia looked for the goal by all means while Panachaiki tried to find the empty spaces and start the counterattack.

The visitors had some good moments and missed a huge chance to make it 2-1 in the 90+4 minutes when Tetei tried to defeat Kolovouris with a deflected shot, but the Panachaki goalkeeper saved the corner.

When he took it, the ball stayed in Panachaiki’s penalty area and, after a few struggles, reached Vafeas, who caught a flash with his left hand from the height of the penalty kick and sent the ball into the net to make it 2-1 for Kifisia, which was enthusiastically celebrated by both the players on the field as well as those on the bench.

12 months imprisonment for Dimitris Kalaitzidis




Apollon Pontos coach Dimitris Kalaitzidis has been found guilty of violence and insults. He was sentenced to 12 months in prison, reports NEWS24/7.

The coach of Apollon Pontos, Dimitris Kalaitzidis, has been sentenced to a total of 12 months in prison after complaining about an incident involving a manager of Veria a few days ago on the sidelines of the football match between the two teams in the Super League 2 championship in Polykastro Stadium in Kilkis.

As reported by NEWS24/7, the three-person Administrative Offenses Court in Kilkis found the 66-year-old trainer guilty of violence and insults within the meaning of the Sports Act as part of the spontaneous proceedings.

The court neither stayed the sentence nor granted a stay of appeal. However, he postponed the execution of the judgment by six months with a special provision of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

With the same decision, Mr. Kalaitzidis must be present at the police station for the next two years at the matches between Apollon Pontos and Veria.

He himself rejected the allegations in his apology.

Athens Kallithea request referee replacement of Kifissia game




In a new letter to KED, Athens Kallithea demands the referee change in the game between Kifisia and Episkopi and the presence of Steve Bennett.

Third letter to KED and Steve Bennett from Athens Kallithea, on the referee definitions for matches of Super League 2 match day 28.

This time, Athens Kallithea requests Episkopi to replace the referee appointed for Kifisia’s game, pointing out that he (Konstantinos Poulikidis) does not qualify for Super League 1. The reason for the new letter concerns the request, submitted in writing by the Athens club a day earlier, that Super League 1 referees should be appointed for reasons of justice for all remaining games of Kifissia and Athens’ Kallithea.

At the same time, Athens Kallithea requests the presence of Steve Bennett in Rethymno for the match between Kifisia and Episkopi (if there is no replacement for Constantinos Poulikidis), instead of her own match against Ilioupoli as she requested a day earlier.

The letter in detail:

Dear Mr. Bennett,

According to our letter numbered: 26/30.5.2023 and telephone communication between the President, Mr. Viktoras Tsiolekas, and the member of KED, Mr. Stavros Mandalos, we regret to have found that in our match against Ilioupoli a rated referee was appointed and was not judged in the game of the other contender for the championship (PAE SA KIFISIA), for the game Episkopi – Kifisia, namely Mr. Poulikidis Konstantinos, whom you have already penalized twice this year.

We are obliged to point out – let us remind you that Mr. Pulikidis Konstantinos, among other matches, also officiated the famous PANSERRAIKOS – AEL matches against which PAE AEL had big and legitimate complaints against his decisions. It is also questionable how a SL2 referee from Drama was appointed to referee a game in Rethymnon.

As we have been unaware of the Championship being able to appoint qualified referees for both games, we call for the immediate replacement of Mr Poulikidis with a qualified SuperLeague 1 referee.

In the event that his replacement does not take place, we ask that you be present at the game EPISKOPI – KIFISIA.

We have faith in KED and your presence in this game will be a guarantee of the Championship’s credibility.

The letter will also be sent to the President of the Federation, Mr. Baltakos Panagiotis, who needs to be informed and give an opinion.


For Athens Kallithea FC

Victor Tsiolekas

Chairman and CEO of the Board of Directors
