The second league group East eventually got back in action after the 16 days break due to the UEFA Regions’ Cup that featured players from these clubs within the amateur Macedonian national team.
This round’s derby took place in Gevgelija featuring two promotion rivals, hosts Kozhuf and still undefeated Tikvesh. After a goalless and even first half the visitors broke the dead lock in the 63rd minute thanks to Mitev’s goal. Ten minutes from time Ivanovski was fouled from behind in the home box by Shishkov. The referee whistled for a penalty and showed the second yellow card to the home defender. Mishov converted the penalty cementing Tikvesh’s win.
Leaders Borec had no problems with bottom-placed Detonit. With a comfortable two goals lead in the opening half they announced the new three points. Near the end Borec added two more to record a 4:0 win.
Bregalnica had problems at home against Vardar but at the end celebrated a win. It was 1:1 until the 80th minute when Naumov scored his second and Ilijev later confirmed the victory.
Partizan hosted Sasa in a match that ended 1:1 when it comes to red cards, but goalless in goals. A brawl twenty minutes from time was the most exiting moment in this match that lead to both teams being downed to ten men.
The other goalless match was between Plachkovica and Kit-Go. The visitors played with ten men since the 44th minute, but the hosts failed to use the player advantage.
The Round 9 postponed match between Borec and Tikvesh was originally moved for today’s date, but due to postponing of this round had to be re-scheduled. It will be played 1 December.
