Shkendija 77, the flawless winners of 4.MFL Gazi Baba, on Saturday faced the winners of 4.MFL Kisela Voda, the team of Kul, who was almost as perfect as them in its group recording only one defeat.
The match was pretty even with both teams creating few chances, but no goals were scored and the match had to be decided on penalties. The Shkendija players converted all five shots, while one Kul player missed a penalty which decided the winner.
Shkendija last time played in the North back in the 2014/15 season when they got disqualified. After that the club dissolved and was reactivated last summer.
