Novaci surprised Gorno Lisiche, while Turnovo, Vardar, Pelister, Metalurg, Renova, Makedonija GjP, Miravci, Drita, Napredok and Sileks also went through.
Pelister and Napredok scored 5 goals each and destroyed their opponents. Pelister had no troubles with the Third League South-West side Karaorman, while Napredok let one goal by Second League side Lokomotiva.
Renova and Turnovo were perfect against 11 Oktomvri and Belasica, winning by four goals. It was expected more from the local derby in Strumica, but on the end Turnovo is in the First League, while Belasica is stuck in the Third League East.
Makedonija GjP recorded its first win in the new season but they had the Third League West side Ljuboten as their opponent. In an unequal battle, they trashed Ljuboten with 3:0. With the same result ended the battle between the two Second League sides, Miravci and Rufeja. After a goalless first half, Miravci used the home field advantage and qualified to the next round.
Vardar had more problems with the motivated opponent Zajazi. After a very interesting first half after which the visitors were leading 3:2, Zajazi breathe out and eventually let one more goal.
Sileks also had troubles with Mogila, a team that competes in the Third league South West. In an even battle the home team came out unlucky with a 3:2 defeat, but must be satisfied with their play.
Metalurg eliminated Korzo (Shkupi) with a gola scored 10 minutes from time, but the First League side is lucky that the home team missed several good occasions in the first half.
Today’s surprise comes from the village of Novaci where the local Second League side defeated newly promoted First League team Gorno Lisiche.
Drita beat Borec again in just five days. After winning 3:0 at home in their Second League encounter, Drita today eliminated Borec from the Cup after celebrating 2:1 away in Veles.
For the record, Teteks and Gostivar were automatically qualified in the 1/8 finals as their opponents dropped the competition, while the remaining three games are scheduled for tomorrow.
