Vardar noted a routine 2:0 win over last placed 11 Oktomvri and kept their five point advantage over second placed Metalurg who also won 2:0 on the road against Teteks.  Vardar had no problems, scoring one goal in each half.  Filip Petrov and Serbian defender Radenko Bojović were on target for the Red&Black team while Metalurg won thanks to goals from captain Mile Krstev and veteran striker Baze Ilijoski.

The most interesting game took place in Stip where Bregalnica recorded a come from behind victory over Rabotnicki.  After a goalless first half, Rabotnicki quickly scored two goals in the 50th and 56th minute through Krste Velkoski and Filip Despotovski who scored his first goal in the Rabotnicki jersey.  The score of 0:2 seemed like a secure lead, but then Bregalnica woke up.  Serbian midfielder Aleksandar Ivanović and recent newcomer Genc Hyseni found the back of the net to make it 2:2 before Goran Zdravkov then converted a penalty after he was fouled inside the area by Pance Kjumbev.  Therefore, Bregalnica noted an important three points while Rabotnicki suffered their fourth consecutive league defeat!

A quality game also occurred in Ohrid where the home side led 2:0 at halftime but still failed to secure the win.  Projkov brought Ohrid the lead before Hristijan Dimoski directly fro free kick scored his 6th goal of the season to extend the lead.  However, the visitors from Dzepciste managed to take a point by scoring two goals in the second half.  In just 10 minutes,  Renova was on level footing after Dejan Leskaroski first scored an own goal before Marjan Andonov made it 2:2 in the 78th minute.
