Iraklis draws 3-3 with PAOK in Greek league

ATHENS, Greece (AP) Iraklis took the lead twice but needed a stoppage-time equalizer from defender Sebastian Bartolini to snatch a 3-3 draw with PAOK in the Thessaloniki derby in the Greek league on Sunday.

Just a minute earlier, PAOK striker Dimitar Berbatov had a chance to secure victory with a penalty, but Iraklis goalkeeper Dusan Pernis easily parried his spot-kick.

Giorgos Makris and Apostolos Vellios gaven host Iraklis the lead in the 14th and 43rd minutes respectively, with PAOK equalizing through Dimitris Pelkas in the 35th and Berbatov in the 65th before Giorgos Tzavellas put PAOK ahead in the 77th.

PAOK is in fifth place, 10 points behind leader Olympiakos, and Iraklis is joint 12th.

Also, Atromitos won 1-0 at Veria, Panetolikos drew 2-2 at Levadiakos and Asteras and Xanthi drew 1-1.
