Hamburg beats Borussia Dortmund 3-1

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Hamburger SV took advantage of Borussia Dortmund's mistakes to win 3-1 on Friday, in the first Bundesliga match since Germany players went through two terrorist scares in the past week.

The match began with two minutes of silence -- one for the victims of the Paris attacks a week ago and one for the recently deceased former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt, a Hamburg native.

The kickoff was 15 minutes late, but league officials said it was because a traffic jam outside the stadium had delayed many fans and not because of stricter security measures introduced in the wake of the Paris attacks.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga, Lewis Holtby and an own goal by Mats Hummels gave Hamburg a 3-0 lead before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cut the deficit with his 15th goal of the season.
