After great excitement, the team from Székelyföld defended its title in the Romanian Cup with penalties, in which the goalkeeper Niczuly Roland was the hero of the cup final.

Romanian Cup, final:
Sepsi OSK–Universitatea Cluj 0–0 – with 11s 5–4
Sibiu, City Stadium, 11,813 spectators. Led by: Popa

Sepsi OSK: Niczuly – Balasa (Tamás M., 85), Ciobotariu (Dimitrov, 85), Ninaj, Dumitrescu – Stefanescu, J. Rodriguez, Paun (Varga R., 111), Matei (Gheorghe, 75) – Rondón ( Aganovic, in the break), Safranko (Tudorie, 75). Head coach: Cristiano Bergodi (via NSO)

Defending champion Sepsi OSK started the final better, but after the first quarter of an hour, the team from Cluj, which graduated from the Romanian lower house, took control of the game. The stagnation of the Székely team was incomprehensible, and they didn’t really manage to find a rhythm in the continuation either, while the U hit the post twice. Sepsi was not without danger either, there were opportunities, but already in regular time you could feel that this was either a one-goal game, or there would not be that many.

In the end, the latter scenario came true, so the penalties could come, and the drama was not left behind. St. George’s players, who made a mistake in the first pair, were one shot away from elimination in the last pair, but Roland Niczuly saved the last 11 of the Cluj team, so the duel continued. In the shootout, Sepsi made a mistake again, but Niczuly saved his team again, and in the sixth pair, when the Szentgyörgy team scored, the Székely goalkeeper made another save, thus winning the trophy for the Triszék team.
