Proliga | Ivry solid at Billère, Sélestat leaves a point to Valence

By

While Ivry continues its merry way at the top of the championship, Sélestat left a point on the way this weekend.

Ivry continues to make its way through the obstacles. The move to Billere of this weekend was certainly one, but Sébastien Quintallet’s men escaped without damage by winning 25 to 23. A time trailing by four goals, the red and black reversed the situation after the break, and this despite the disqualification of Simon Ooms. As often, Mate Sunjic (14 saves) was the detonator in his cage, while Antonin Mohamed and Axel Cochery both scored six goals. Dijonwinner at Villeurbanne (35:28), continue to follow the rhythm. A 5:0 from the start to put themselves on the right track, and Ulrich Chaduteaud’s players quietly managed their end of the game, led by an excellent Lucien Auffret (10 goals).

In the peloton of pursuers, Selestat is the only team not to have won, bringing the point of the draw from Valence (29:29). Yet well ahead in the middle of the second half, the Alsatians stammered in the last quarter of an hour, before Sylvain Kieffer equalized at the last second, thereby offering an important point to his team in the race to maintain. Pontault Combault perfectly negotiated his trip to Sarrebourg (30:27), taking a four-goal lead at the break before widening the gap in the second act.

It took until the end of the first period for Tremblay off hook Besancon, with a hell of an offensive festival (39:34). If the Besançons hung on for twenty-five minutes, their loss of ball was punished by Tufu Lufuanitu and Marko Matijasevic, the duo offering a seven-goal lead to the Tremblaysiens at the break, before a controlled second part of the match. Tremblay remains neck and neck with Cherbourgserious about Massy (32:27). Fred Bougeant’s players stepped on the accelerator after returning from the locker room in the wake of Reida Rezzouki, again top scorer for his side with eight goals.

Nice remains within gunshot of the play-offs, despite its draw at home against Caen (28:28). Leading with six goals at the break (17:11), the Cavigal conceded an 8:1 on the return from the changing rooms, Mathias Creteau carrying his team at arm’s length with his eight goals. The promoted Caennais can always dream of a little more than maintaining, pointing to four points from sixth place. Speaking of maintenance, Strasbourg gave himself a bit of air by going to take the points at Angers (27:26). It was thanks to a goal in the last moments that the Alsatians logically took the points, in a meeting that they generally mastered, still leading by six goals with a quarter of an hour remaining. The SCO remains red lantern while Strasbourg now has six points ahead of the first relegation, Valencia.
