FK Petrovac coach Aleksandar Miljenović admitted that "not in our wildest dreams did we think at the beginning of the season that we'd come so far" after his side beat FK Lovćen in the Montenegrin Cup final, the only goal coming two minutes before the end of extra time.
'Swelled with pride'
The lottery of penalties was looming when, after 118 minutes without a goal, striker Luka Rotković tried his luck from 25 metres and the ball somehow found its way past Lovćen goalkeeper Marko Drašković. "My heart is swelled with pride and I can hardly express my feelings," said Miljenović. "This is a great success for our club, in what is our 40th year. I am very proud of my players." Miljenović's charges had edged much of the proceedings in Podgorica, having two goals chalked off in the first half for offside. Three places behind their opponents in the Prva crnogorska, Lovćen came into the game as it went on but a penalty shoot-out always looked their more likely method of victory. The cup winners earn a place in the second qualifying round of the inaugural UEFA Europa League.
