Iraklis beats 2nd-place Panathinaikos 1-0 in Greek league


ATHENS, Greece — Apostolos Vellios' solo effort and score from a tight angle in the first half was enough for Iraklis to beat Panathinaikos 1-0 in the Greek league on Saturday.

The win kept Panathinaikos eight points adrift of league leader Olympiakos, which hosts Asteras on Sunday, and allowed Panionios, a 2-0 winner over Giannena, to catch Panathinaikos in second place, but with one more game played.

Iraklis was in eighth place.

Also, Panthrakikos beat host Atromitos 2-1.
