En less than 15 years old boys, Millau received Pignan this Saturday on behalf of the last day of the first phase. In the absence of Gaby, injured last week, the match promises to be difficult.
Despite a loss of entry ball, Noah recovers and combine with Jean to open the scoring, Hugo forgets to defend, 1 to 1. Jean, thrown, marks nine meters then Milan his cowardly opposite, 2 to 2 then 2 to 3 on another clumsiness. Jean does it again, Dylan makes a superb save and Aaron, on interception, puts us in front, 4 to 3.
Counterattack and unfortunately Loucas pulls aside. Another stop by Dylan and Noah finally scores, 5 to 4. Nolan launched, 6 to 4, but, the Millavois take an exclusion and Pignan returns to the score 6 to 6. Jean snatches this first third on a shot launched from nine meters , 7 to 6.
The second third begins with Aaron shooting to the stars (well above the bars). Pignan opens the scoring, followed by a penalty, 0 to 2. Noah passed to the wing, scores then, it’s the black hole, we do not defend or badly and we concede four goals.
Aaron puts in a nice shot from the top corner then, on a nice combination, Nolan also scores with a nice cross, but the score is final, 3 to 10.
On the third third, we can still see good handball in attack, but Aaron fails on the keeper. Nice combination between Jonathan and Nolan, but loss of ball. John finds our pivot Aaron finally scores; new pass to the pivot, but, this time, shooting six yards to the side and still the same defense problems, five goals conceded. Elie wing mark, 3 to 9.
Pass and go from Jean and goal from Aaron, 4 to 11 and again a good attacking action, but our handball players lost 5 to 11 and 15 to 27 in this match. Pignan remains in vain.
There is satisfaction for the attack despite a deficit of our wingers, but above all, these defense problems remain to be resolved.
SOM Handball will therefore be qualified in low pool and will find teams more at their level: it is up to our players to progress!
