PAOK draws 1-1 at crosstown rival Aris
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — An own goal by Haris Economopoulos gave PAOK a 1-1 draw against Aris in the Greek league Sunday.
Andreas Tatos put Aris ahead in the 23rd with a free kick but Economopoulos then deflected a powerful shot by Klaus Athanasiadis into the top right corner of his own net in the 45th.
The fortunes of the two long-time rivals in the northern city of Thessaloniki have diverged widely this year: PAOK now shares second place with Atromitos, 18 points behind already-crowned champion Olympiakos, while Aris languishes in last place, eight points behind second-last Platanias, which trounced Kalloni 7-0 Sunday.
Also, Panathinaikos won 1-0 at Giannena, Ergotelis prevailed 3-2 at Asteras and Panionios beat Levadiakos 4-2.
