Sunday 16 February 2014

An episodic Derby became today at the small stadium of Agioi Deka, from one side the experience and strong football team of Benitses and the other the young and very fast team of the spectators.

Things were difficult from the beginning for Benitses and became worse when they got behind in score after a goal from a distant shot by no 10 of Agioi Deka “Endri”, it was about halfway through the first half.

Benitses managed to equalize thought after a few minutes with a direct free-kick from the left by their no 10 midfielders Stratigos, the ball hit the ground and tricked the keeper ending in his left corner.
And while everyone waited for the end of the first half, in the 45th minute after a bad fending of defender Karadinos the ball hit the legs on Entri again and ended slowly in Benitses`s nets for the 2-1 for Iraklis(Hercules) of Agioi Deka.

The second half Benitses played a little better but without many final efforts, from the side of Hercules we had delays in any opportunity, so we reached the 7th minute of extra time and the match looked lost for Benitses when really at the last moment the corner from the right of Stratigos and the header by Giourgas save the day for FC Benitses, final score 2 – 2.
We had three red cards for Benitses players which were really irritable throughout the match, they equalized with nine players on the field and finished the match with eight after the miscarriage of goalkeeper Ntaekos when he complained unnecessarily to the linesman, serious episodes followed in the locker room after the end of the game.

The Referee was moderate, didn`t make serious mistakes but irritated enough the players of both teams, the ten-minute lasted extra time may seem too much but was fully justified since after 2-1 players of Hercules fell to the ground at the slightest touch and remained down for some time with the apparent purpose of delaying the game, also during substitutions there were delays for several minutes.

The flood in Benitses at 17-11-2010

On the evening of 16th-17th November 2010 in Corfu the heavens opened, the quantity of water that fell within 2 hours far exceeded the 150 mm, that was the total rainfall in some other areas throughout the year.

This, coupled with the unregulated changes made to the environment following the rerouting of the river developments had been made in recent years along its course, caused the river to overflow so that parked cars drifted away, homes and basements flooded and generally caused damage seen for the first time in our region.

An important role in blocking the free flow of water in the river was played by the sanitation and water pipes which held large amounts of woods and other rubbish, and so the water flooded with these catastrophic results.
In the video below we see typical scenes after the rain, cars carried away and crushed, bikes in the sea, flooded houses and uneven flooded streets.
