ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Olympiakos continued its perfect start in the Greek league by beating Panionios 3-1 away on Sunday, extending its record run of consecutive wins to 16.

Alejandro Dominguez, Felipe Pardo and Brown Ideye all scored in the second half for Olympiakos. Spyros Risvanis scored a short-lived equalizer for Panionios.

Olympiakos’ winning run includes a Nov. 21 game against archrival Panathinaikos, which failed to start due to fan trouble. Olympiakos was awarded a 3-0 victory.

Second-place AEK, a 3-0 winner at Platanias on Sunday is 18 points behind. Panionios is sixth.

Xanthi vs. PAOK and Levadiakos vs. Atrolmitos were postponed Sunday. Xanthi’s pitch was snowbound and Levadiakos’ stadium was waterlogged after a thunderstorm, with gusty winds also posing a danger to players and fans alike.
