Last weekend, the second cadet league in the east of the country was played in Krško Posavje and Bistrica, around 60 spectators witnessed an interesting performance with eight goals. The visitors won, which is not too surprising, at least considering that the hosts had only 11 players registered for the match!
Despite not having a single player on the bench, the home team stood up well against their rivals from Slovenska Bistrica, where the number 10 – interestingly – is Joshua Moraes Tavares, the younger son of the legendary Marcos Tavares.
Amil Limani was the top scorer for the home team, scoring three times. First, he tied the game at 1:1, then he scored two more goals to wipe out Brežice’s 3:1 lead. When many were convinced that the match would end in a 3:3 draw, Bistrica scored in the 90th minute. and 92. In the final minute, they scored two more goals and finally broke down the resistance of the heroic but still decimated hosts.
While – as mentioned – Amil Limani scored a hat-trick for Krško Posavje, Anej Skrbiš (2), Nik Romih, Mateja Bajić and Nino Strnad scored for the visitors.
Rudar Velenje is leading the second Cadet League East, a point ahead of NK MB Tabor. Beltinci is last, Krško Posavje is seventh and Bistrica is fifth.
