West Round 12:
Huge surprise happened today in Kichevo as Vlazrimi 77 suffered a big home defeat by Korabi. The Debar visitors took the lead early in the 9th minute with Vlazrimi equalizing in the 25th. Korabi managed to take a new lead in the last minute before the break. In the second half the hosts failed to find a way to the visiting net and instead conceded two goals that sent Korabi players jubilant for the unexpected big win.
The town of Gostivar witnessed a local derby between Gostivar and Gench Kalemler. After both teams scored one goal each in the opening 45 minutes, the newly promoted side claimed the points thanks to an injury time goal by Aliji.
Pelister recorded the fourth consecutive home win. Today their victim was Goblen who got defeated thanks to the brace by Glavevski.
Leaders Struga visited bottom-placed Teteks in Tetovo and failed to grab the points. The leaders were up one goal but a converted penalty earned Teteks a point. Despite the point Teteks is still buried at the bottom.
It is interesting that the difference between second-to-last team and the third-placed team is only 3 points.
This round got closed a day later, on Sunday, with the match between Labunishta and Skopje. The home side score twice in the opening half which later proved to be just enough to win the points. With this win and Struga’s draw, Labunishta now took over the table top.

East Round 11:
Leaders Borec faced huge challenge in Sasa away. The relegation struggling team had a lone goal win acquired in the last moments before the break, but at the end left the field empty handed. Borec equalized late in the 84th minute and added a winner from a penalty kick in the 89th. Turning around the result in the last minute made the last moment too nervous which resulted into two red cards for the home players, one for the visitors and two of the home coaches where also sent off.
Kozhuf, Tikvesh and Kit-Go had no problems in the matches against their rivals Detonit, Plachkovica and Vardar and easily clinched three points.
Tikvesh – Plachkovica highlights:
It was Bregalnica who celebrated a hardly earned win away to newly promoted side Partizan. After leading 1:0, Partizan equalized just four minutes into the second half and kept a point until nine minutes from time when Velkovski scored a winner.
