After a goalless first half Belasica scored three goals to claim the points against Plachkovica. Second-placed Bregalnica also won, so the difference between the two remained the same.
Even with ten men Borec managed to score a late goal and defeat Osogovo. The Kochani side is well organized, even with a web site and Instagram profile, but results are missing and the team is in a very serious situation, stuck in the relegation zone.
Kozhuf clinched expected points against Pobeda from Valnadovo who even came to Gevgelija with only 12 players.

Tikvesh was idle.
West leaders Gostivar had no problems with Gorno Lisiche trashing the visitors with four goals. It was a round of the home teams as no visiting team managed to even win a single point. Promotion candidates Makedonija GjP, Vlazrimi 77 and Struga didn’t let Gostivar to escape clinching 3 points each against Teteks, Lokomotiva and Zajazi. Most interesting was in Skopje where the Lions had a 2:0 lead over Teteks when captain Igor Savevski missed a penalty kick sending the ball wide. Still, his team managed to pull one back and get back in game, but failed to add an equalizer.
Biggest winner of this round is Labunishta who defeated Novaci and thanks to the defeats of all of their relegation rivals they are now 4 points away from the 6th place, the last that may get relegated.
