  • [01] May Day marks beginning of Spring

    (┴═┴-╠PA) -- A 50-square-metre mosaic of 7,000 plants and flowers, donated by the greenhouse cooperatives of the greater Athens area, were put on display in Kotzia Square, in front of the Athens City Hall, on Sunday, May 1, 2011. May 1, the traditional beginning of Spring, was celebrated around the country on Sunday with lawn & garden shows as well as the collection of wild flowers for the making of floral wreaths, as custom dictates. ┴═┴-╠PA / S.

    [02] ┴┼╩ wins football Cup

    (┴═┴-╠PA) -- AEK Athens won the 2010-2011 Greek Super League Cup on Saturday evening after downing a determined Atromitos Athens side 3-0, amid a hooliganism-marred final played at the Athens Olympic Stadium before more than 55,000 spectators.

    Winning the football Cup for AEK more-or-less salvaged a lackustre season for the popular yellow-&-black side in the Super League championship, whereas outsider Atromitos reached the Cup finals for the first time in the teamÔs history. The west Athens side narrowly avoided relegation during the regular season. (┴═┴-╠PA)

    AEK went ahead in the 28th minute on a header by match MVP Nikos Lymberopoulos, a goal that incensed the Atromitos side as the scorer was in an offside position when he nailed the ball into the net.

    Atromitos fared better at the start of the second but failed to equalise, leading to two AEK goals in the 78th and 85th minutes.

    Hooligans interrupted play at several instances by ominously charging towards the pitch, despite a heavy riot police and private security presence. In fact, several minutes of injury time were ignored, with the referee concluding the game just after the 90th minute of play when mostly youthful AEK supporters finally made it onto the field.
