Borac players can regret missed opportunity to return home with the victory from Strumica with home team scoring in last seconds over Jovica Mladenovski for 30:30 in SEHA Gazprom League match. This was Maks' second draw this season after the home one against Vojvodina leaving both teams on League's bottom.
Interesting is that three minutes to the end Borac was ahead 30:27, and many thought guests will celebrate. However Aleksander Boseovski scored twice in a row givinf Mladenovski a chance to delight fans in final moments.
Revaz Chanturija scored 13 goals for Maks Strumica, and Davorin Vujović scored 6 for Borac.
Marjan Andonov, Maks Strumica’s coach:
We expected an uncertain match. I said today that a team which makes less mistakes and it is exactly what happened. We had lot of mistakes in the game but in the end we've also had a bit of luck scoring three in a row. That's sport.
Stefan Čizmović, Maks Strumica’s player:
It was an interesting game. In last 15 seconds they were not concentrated, and I managed to take away the ball,and fortunately achieve a goal in the last seconds. We experienced similar situation on a duel with Vojvodina, and I know how they feel. I am satisfied with the result, this is a great point.
Aleksander Medjedović, Borac’s coach:
We had control over the result mainly in the second half. We've made some mistakes and allowed rival to earn a point. They did not surrender until the end and finally got a point.
Boris Šekarić, Borac’s player:
We expected a tough match, especially after Strumica' two defeats. We had three goal advantage, two minutes before the end. I do not know what happened. We had 15 seconds and a time out, but failed to take all 3 points.
