Rabotnicki from "minus 21" to a convincing victory, and TFT continues without a mistake
Angeli's players had a great 15 minutes under "Kale" - Skopje, but did not keep the big lead, ie the favorite Rabotnicki celebrated a convincing victory (86:69) in the third round of the First League.
After the equalized 10 minutes, few expected that the debutant in the company of the best KK Angeli will have such a phenomenal second quarter, in which he reached a surprising "plus 21" basket difference (42:21).
When they saw that there was no joke with Angels, the home basketball players put even more pressure after the break. By the end of the third section, the hosts managed to completely cancel the double-digit lead of the guests from Kisela Voda. And after the two realized free throws of Mustafica, Rabotnicki passed to a minimal lead (55:53). Angels scored only four points in that part of the game, the host even 17!
In the next run, the "red and whites" made a series of 16: 7, reached a double-digit advantage (71:60), which they did not miss until the end of the match.
Emerson had 21 points (six assists) for Rabotnicki, while Manderson scored 22 points (four rebounds) on the opposite side.
On the other today's duels: MZT Skopje Uni Bank - Gostivar 67:92, Kozuv - FMP Academy Naviko 69:76 and Kumanovo - TFT 68:85.
Like Rabotnicki, TFT remains the only undefeated team so far this season, in the victory over Kumanovo the most efficient was Horton with 20 points (10 rebounds), and among the losers Gligorijevic had the same effect with one jump less.
In the incomplete round, TFT and Rabotnicki are currently leading the table with six points each, Gostivar has five, Pelister four, MZT Skopje Uni Bank, FMP Academy Naviko and Kumanovo, three each MZT Skopje Aerodrom, Phoenix 2010, Euro Nickel, Kozuv and Angeli.
