The TOEC-TOAC-FCT did not drag yesterday on the lawn of Mazamet. On a ball that fell from the Tarnais, the against Toulouse took place over more than 50 m. A later touch and a perfectly constructed big attack brought quick winger Beilles behind the line.
With the successful transformation from the edge of the sideline, the experienced scrum half Torrès began his festival. There were two penalties before the half hour mark. Almela-Udry reduced the score a little before the break reached on the score from 13 to 3 in favor of the TOEC.
The Tarnais began the second act with much more aggressiveness. The joint returns of Gallego, Fournier and Durif met visitors on the retreat thanks to a few quality sequences. Alméla-Udry valued these highlights with two penalties. At the hour of play the score of 9-13 authorized all the hopes especially as the Toulouse pillar Flitti received a yellow card.
Yes, but in the 61st, Torres again managed a drop on one of Toulouse’s rare forays into the Tarn camp. Barely 5 minutes later, it was the Mazametan scrum that signaled some signs of weakness and was penalized. Torres, executioner of the Mazamétains, gave a little air to his team (9-19). After the scrum, it was the key that began to malfunction. The strong TOEC-TOAC pack declared good in defense and Torres became an event continuing its festival in becoming imperial in the occupation of the field.
Condemned to play with an increasingly slippery ball, the Mazamétains multiplied their clumsiness. And it is on a counter in stoppage time that the TOEC crucified Sporting with a new test from Beilles.
