Pelister celebrated an important road win against Metalurg.  The hero was Brazilian striker Stênio Júnior who scored four goals!  After each of his first two goals, Metalurg managed to tie the game, first at 1:1 and then at 2:2, but Stênio Júnior added two more goals in the 65th and 87th minute to allow Pelister to take home all three points.  Metalurg even missed a penalty while 1:2 when Pashovski saved Ljamchevski’s shot.  For the home team this was only the second defeat of the season.

Bregalnica and Vardar shared the points in Shtip, playing a 1:1 draw.  Vardar took the lead after a mistake by goalkeeper Daniel Bozhinovski who dropped the ball, allowing former Macedonian international Aco Stojkov to score.  Later, the hosts managed to level the score thanks to Slavcho Velkovski.  Both teams tried to score a winner, but the result remained unchanged.

Horizont Turnovo was a bad host for Makedonija GjP, beating the visiting side 5:1.  Dejan Blazhevski scored a brace to bring his tally to 14 goals this season, tying Krste Velkovski at the top of the goalscorer list.  Additionally, Dejan Mitrev, Sashko Pandev and Muzafer Ejupi added one goal apiece to complete the scoring for Horizont Turnovo.

The two least intriguing matchups of the round, Gostivar – Napredok and Renova – Gorno Lisiche, ended in boring goalless draws.
