Olympiakos wins Greek Water Polo Cup May 21, 2007

Piraeus water polo club Olympiakos earned an easier-than-expected 11-5 victory against local rival Ethnikos yesterday to win the Greek Cup.

Ethnikos, a winner of 12 cup titles, had never before lost in the cup final. Olympiakos applied pressure from early on to gain a match-winning lead. The cup winner built a 3-1 lead at the end of the final’s first quarter and then surged for a 7-2 advantage by the halftime break. Olympiakos’s squad kept the celebrations subdued as the club prepares to take on Honved in Budapest in a crucial clash leading to final-four play in Europe.

“I think we’ve attained our first objective,” said Giorgos Doskas. “We’re now looking at the game against Honved.”
