Through Aline Chatel
the Caen Handball performed a tremendous show of force on Friday, October 15, 2021, in front of an amply stocked and hot and boiling Sports Center. Led by a huge Alan Santos de Lima (50% saves!), The Vikings made short work of tender Villeurbannais (32-18). Caen led the discussions with a head and shoulders in the wake of a perfect start (6-1, 17 ′).
Caen 32 – 18 Villeurbanne
CAEN: Muyembo 1, Allais 3, Langevin 3, Mancelle 9, Créteau 4, Lagier-Pitre, Guillard 3, Le Merle 2, Trottet 3, Deschamps 1, Lakbi 1, Slassi 2. GB: Santos (16 stops at 50%) and Portat.
VILLEURBANNE: Thuillier 3, Rezzouki 1, Zammit 2, Léon 2, Oliveras 1, Bludzien 4, Chazallet 1, Kaabeche, Antignac 1, Knezevic, Biagui 3, Livgot. GB: Haseljic (1 stop at 14%), Druguet (9 stops at 26%).
For the suspense, it will be necessary to iron. After 25 minutes of play, Villeurbanne still capped at 4 goals (13-4, 26 ′). At the break, Yannis Mancelle had scored as many goals as the entire opposing team combined (15-7, 30 ′). Despite their great lead, the Normans did not succeed when they returned from the locker room. They hit the nail on the head to the point of counting… 16 lengths ahead of a demobilized Villeurbanne (29-13, 52 ′). The last minutes allowed Tanguy Le Merle, young shoot from the Vikings Academy, to score his first two goals in proligue.
Alan Santos, the key to the match
For Caen, the evening is perfect. “The key to the match is the performance of Alan (Santos), argues Roch Bedos. It was favored by defensive activity. Behind it makes a lot of things easier. On the balls, on the court, it frees. The Caennais put all the ingredients they had imagined after the video work.
This victory is important from an accounting point of view and it is also important because the Palais des Sports was full. It is heartwarming !
The Caennais showed their character after two heavy defeats against Ivry and Sélestat, in the cup. Caen climbs back to 13th place in the standings before playing a new match against a direct opponent in Angers, Friday, October 22, 2021.
