The Pobeda vs. Pelister derby ended in a draw, just like two other games this round. Only Ljubanci and Gostivar collected victories.
Ljubanci, who are playing their first season in the Second League, has started well. Earlier on Saturday, Ljubanci claimed another 3 points by recording a come from behind victory over Skopje. They overcame an early 0:1 deficit in the 13th minute by scoring two goals later in the 1st half. That was all they needed to hold off Skopje. Ljubanci now has 7 points after three rounds, showing they are one of the early favorites for promotion. Several Vardar players were sent on loan to Ljubanci, so that has benefited them so far.
The other four games took place on Sunday. The biggest match was Pobeda hosting Pelister in what is known as the Pelagonian Derby. The home team took the 1:0 lead just before half-time through Nikolche Sharkoski, but Pelister equalized in the 6th minute of the injury time thanks to Blagojche Glavevski. Both Pobeda and Pelister now have three draws in three games this season.
Gostivar had no troubles with Kozhuf Miravci, celebrating a comfortable 3:0 win. The visitors appear to be top contenders for relegation as they remain without a point and goal.
Vlazrimi 77 and Makedonija GjP shared the points in a 1:1 draw. Makedonija GjP broke the deadlock in the 85th minute via a converted penalty kick, but Vlazrimi 77 grabbed the equalizer in the 89th minute. The score of 1:1 was also the result at the Gorno Lisiche vs. Teteks game in Skopje. Both teams got on the scoresheet in the opening half.
