FK Borac Banja Luka have taken the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Cup on away goals after following up their 1-1 home draw against FK Željezničar with a 2-2 result in Sarajevo.
Borac took a firm grip on the tie at the Grbavica stadium, with Miroslav Stevanović giving them a sixth-minute lead before Saša Kajkut made it 2-0 on 26 minutes. The scores were level within ten minutes of the restart as Edin Višća (49) and Mirsad Bešlija (55) struck back for the league leaders, but Borac held on for an away-goals win, though both sides end the tournament unbeaten.
"This is a great success, especially because we did it away from home," said Borac coach Zoran Marić, whose side claimed their first major national cup since beating FK Crvena Zvezda 1-0 in the 1987/88 Yugoslav Cup final. "This was an incredible match, with an atmosphere one only dreams of. This is proof that football in this country has a bright future. This win is a gift for Borac's fans and the city of Banja Luka."
In the first leg Borac led through a tenth-minute Ljubiša Vukelja goal only for Višća to hit back seven minutes from the end. Željezničar may yet have the last word this season, however, as they lead Borac by four points with two Premijer Liga games remaining. A win against relegation-threatened FK Laktaši on Sunday will give the 1971/72 Yugoslavian champions their fourth title since independence.
