Junacite 3 - 1 Skaut

Dark skies made several of the 159 spectators at Chernomorets contemplate an early return journey, but the rain held off. The picks for today were: Matev - Bakov, Damyanov, Mihaylov, Obretenov, Dimov - Razboynikov, Gönen, Gyorev, Bozhilov, Gúnev -.

Starters: Canoski - Velkoski, Tanasovski, Janjatović - Gochev, Topalli, Joksimović, Mateski, Kezarov - Ololovski, Davitkovski.

Chernomorski Junak entered the field in a 5-5-0 formation. The visitors, FC Skaut U-19, chose to start the game with a 3-5-2 lineup. Junacite displayed their ability to play creatively. Skaut appeared uncertain how to play and their organisation was only passable. There was great disorder in the penalty box following a corner, with Georgi Obretenov wasting several opportunities to score. At last, Junacite's Kostadin Gúnev was able to shove the ball in. 1 - 0. Junacite were awarded a penalty 27 minutes into the game, and Nikolay Mihaylov managed to score - despite being visibly nervous about it. 2 - 0 for the home side. Nikolay Mihaylov looked like a seasoned veteran as he increased Junacite's lead to 3 - 0 from the penalty spot. 3 - 0 was the score after 45 minutes. This half the Junacite boys hung on to the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

After handing out some oranges, Skaut's coach repeated his tactical instructions to the team. The boys finally got it, and were back at solid organisation when the whistle blew again. After 46 minutes, Skaut substituted Gjoko Gochev for Xhemal Koçeli, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. 64 minutes into the match, Junacite's Nikolay Mihaylov tried to nail the coffin shut, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. Xhemal Koçeli was the target for the corner kick, but his deflection was blocked by the keeper. However, Skaut's Marko Janjatović happened to be in the right place for the rebound and scored the 3 - 1 goal as a result. After 79 minutes, Skaut had a fantastic opportunity to reply but Dimche Ololovski tried to do it all by himself and the chance vanished . A counterattack by Junacite after 81 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Kostadin Gúnev, coming in on the left, lost his wits and couldn't get the shot off. Intentions were certainly good, but the Skaut indirect free kick combination after 83 minutes was easily anticipated by the defenders. That was a textbook example of how to defend a free kick - the attackers were left with few viable options. The match ends with a 3 - 1 score. Junacite, bringing their ball possession to 52 percent, seemed most ambitious today.

The Junacite players gave Tzanko Damyanov a group hug after the game, claiming he'd been "really great". Vladimir Matev needs a lot of extra training, however. The spectators agreed that the most impressive boy in Skaut today had been Dimche Ololovski. The coach took Angel Canoski aside after the game, telling him it is okay to have a bad day on the pitch as long as you keep trying.
