Radnicki hold Partizan to draw

Concluding a busy first weekend at the start of the 2nd half of the season in the Regional league Radnicki came away with a nice result drawing level with reigning Serbian champions Partizan 7-7 thanks to a late goal by Nikola Tomasevic who scored the equaliser with just 12 seconds remaining. On the other end the squad got a lift from young goalie Lazar Dobožanov (pictured) who posted 18 saves in the win. Elsewhere the favourites made no mistake. Jadran Herceg Novi made a 6-point weekend coming away with a 2nd win in their road trip to Split, Croatia as Mornar were defeated 8-11 at home. Lefty Aleksa Ukropina was again on target scoring 4 more goals to conclude a successful offensive weekend carrying his side to another victory. Jug remained unbeaten in another easy win rolling past POSK 2-16, led by Pavo Markovic and Marko Ivankovic who eached netted 4 shots.
Red Star Belgrade defeated Vojvodina Novi Sad 9-10 with Srdjan Aksentijevic scoring a late winner but the result did not count as the Belgrade based side again lined up all recently acquired players including the three coming from Georgia who proved enigible to play. Red Star therewith was penalised once more but stated afterwards that their signing and lining up for the players is in accordance with LEN rules and thus official. Developments on their appeal agains the weekend's decision by the Competition Committee can be expected later this week.
