The last youth cup final category was played today. Pobeda faced Nju Stars in a rather equal match that saw no goals scored for the entire 90 minutes so penalties had to break the tie. Even in the shoot-out both side were equal with none missing in the first five series. Eventually a Pobeda’s substitute keeper Stolevski saved Stojmenov’s shot in the sixth series sending his players jubilant.
