In the closing seconds of the quarter Gruev scored a basket and was fouled making the free throw to make the score 69-58.
In the last quarter Rilski started closing the gap. It came down to three points with six minutes to go and later in the game with 88 seconds to play the gap was just a point, 77-76. Then Levski missed and Gruev scored a lay up to put Rilski ahead for first time in the game.
