The beautiful reaction
Benoît Marty was “proud of the reaction” of his daughters on Saturday. After being very roughed up by Toulouse in the first quarter (9-22), the Chartraines were able to largely put back in the match to raise their opponent and pass in front a few minutes from the end. A reaction that shows the strength of character of this group which has not given up and never stopped believing in chances against a team unanimously presented as the favorite of the championship.
The atmosphere of fire
There were more people than usual, Saturday evening, in the stands of Jean-Cochet. If the 600 spectators present, like their team, had a little trouble getting into their match, the last quarter took place in an atmosphere of madness. “How good it is to play a match in front of an audience like that!” »Declared Marty, after the meeting. Support that greatly helped the girls in the last act.
The return to default
Out on injury a fortnight ago against the France pole, Marine Debaut has signed his return. Author of five 3-point baskets, she was very valuable.
The Marié passes
With 11 assists, the CCBF captain was by far the best in this exercise (8 assists for Toulouse Strunc). By accumulating 8.3 offerings per game at the start of the season, she is largely the best passer in L2.
Elise Marié, the leader of C’Chartres BF: “With me, it’s all for the team”
With 19 points, 9 rebounds, 4 induced faults and 30 evaluation, the Congolese pivot Ginette MFutila is the “MVP” of the match. Beyond the statistics, it is her state of mind as a fighter, well supported in the field by Ève Mahoutou and Nahan Niaré, which allowed her team to get back into the game.
On a less loved one
The catastrophic start
If the girls of the CCBF have always believed in it, at the end of the first quarter, many thought that the match was folded (9-22). The wait-and-see attitude of the Chartraines did not bode well. “We watched them play,” regretted coach Benoît Marty. A bad start has become a habit for a CCBF which had been led 21-12 at Mondeville before winning (64-61), and which had been still hooked by the Pôle France (21-28) before inflicting a correction (104-53).

The absence of Rayte’a Long
CCBF number 44 has not appeared since Mondeville (October 2). His calf injury had been announced to be very superficial, there was even talk of cramps at the start. But it seems to be more serious. A damaging absence as the American strong wing had been sparkling at the start of the season. When we see the performance of the CCBF in his absence, we can only dream of what this team could give with the return of the native of Ohio.
Benoît Marty the CCBF coach and Joelly Belleka
On the sidelines of the Toulouse reception, the CCBF paid tribute to Joelly Belleka. Before joining Haute-Garonne this summer, the rear had made the heyday of Chartres for six seasons. In front of a busy room, which applauded her copiously, Benoît Marty, her ex-coach, gave her a bouquet of flowers as a thank you for the services rendered to the club.
