The beginning did not indicate an efficient match, and before the goals, the first detail that should be singled out happened in the 12th minute, when Salines goalkeeper Darko Milanović received a red card for a foul. Mostar SG took the lead in the 14th minute, when Bilal Jelić sent the ball from the right to the opposite post for Slobodan Rajčević, who scored a goal. Admir Čorhodžić equalized for the guests in the 17th minute with an excellent volley kick from about 7 meters. Rajčević scored his second goal in the 19th minute with a precise shot from ten meters diagonally from the right side. In the last minute of the first half, Čorhodžić, after a solo breakthrough, entered the list of scorers for the second time for 2:2.
The guests opened the second period of the game better and, in the 21st minute, Čorhodžić, assisted by Davor Arnautović, scored a goal for 2:3. Already in the 23rd minute, after the pass of Nermin Kahvedžić, Bilal Jelić levelled the score again. Rajčević scored his hat-trick in the 28th minute, and Jelić registered a new assist.
Salines did not pay to play with the goalkeeper-player, because they conceded another goal in the 28th minute. The goalkeeper of Mostar SG Staklorad, Stanislav Galić, after stopping the opponent’s shot, sent the ball from his goal into the undefended net for 5:3. The sixth goal for Mostar SG was scored by captain Marijo Aladžić in the 33rd minute after a great diagonal shot from the left. In the 34th minute, the same player once again punished Salines’ game with the goalkeeper-player and shot accurately from his six-meter area for the final 7:3.
The second-leg match is scheduled for 18th May in Tuzla.
