For Toulouse-Blagnac HC the score, admittedly heavy, is anecdotal. Of course during the pre-match, coach Eddy Martin and President Michel Guillou shrugged their shoulders, saying that in a Cup meeting everything is possible but against a solid D1 team, logic has been respected. So the staff, the players and the supporters can greatly console themselves because this first round of the Coupe de France was above all the opportunity to meet again after more than a year and a half on the ice of the Jacques-Raynaud rink.
Very enterprising, the Bélougas nevertheless opened the scoring on the first action, boosted by the atmosphere and the scope of the event but quickly the Spartans regained control before taking place in the last two thirds. In the middle of a rather physical meeting, the TBHC gave in 11 times and conceded many penalties but this poster against one of the cadors of the upper division looked like good preparation before a much more important deadline: the place of Colmar next Saturday for the first day of the championship. This time, we will have to put emotions aside and finally start the season.
