Ville Rose, Cité des violettes… It is the Chaumont VB 52 Haute-Marne which collected the flowers of success, Friday November 12, in Toulouse, by showing all the colors to an adversary who could not resist. pressure from Haut-Marne.
The end result is sometimes only a small clue about the scenario of a match. Friday, November 12, the domination of Chaumont VB 52 Haute-Marne in Toulouse could not be recovered from the sole largesse of the score (3 sets to 0). In fact, the cévébiste success was much more difficult to glean than the accounting gap suggests, making the Haut-Marne coach say at the final whistle: “It’s a great victory! I’m happy with Jesus’ performance (Herrera). A match is never easy, but we have been able to find the arguments to shorten the debates. “
Because if we except the total visiting superiority in a second set in one direction (15-25), where Toulouse were struggling to recover from the mass blow received a few minutes earlier, the other two rounds offered a disputed fight, that the CVB 52 was finally able to reverse in the very last exchanges. “We didn’t need the referee decisions at the start of the second set, regretted Joaquim Panou, author of a large part. We were already stunned to have lost the previous one, the red card then completely destabilized us. The break did us good, but it was not enough. “
It must be said that if the Toulousans were able to count on the success of their young receiver / striker, the total bankruptcy of their Brazilian “sharp”, Daniel Cagliari, all the same strongly penalized (read the fact of the match). A striking contrast with the performance of Jesus Herrera, on the other side of the net, author of a mind-boggling game in attack but also in service. The kind of performance that immediately takes the CVB 52 to the next level.
Changes that pay off
Once again, the width of the Chaumontais bench will also have had its effect. While the local coach, Stéphane Sapinart, struggled to find a remedy for the chronic ineffectiveness of his priority striker, his Chaumontais counterpart, Silvano Prandi, did not hesitate to replace a too unrealistic Osniel Mergarejo with his young compatriot. MIguel Gutierrez, with success. The latter not only demonstrated his physical potential in attack, he was especially able to help the reception of stability, where the usual “boss” of defense, Franco Massimino, did not always display total serenity in the face of big Toulouse waiters. A united line was needed that the trio “Gutierrez / Aciobanitei / Massimino” would gradually put in place.
In the same vein, the entry into play of Cédric Da Silva in the distribution at the end of the third set was also of good quality. The ex-Nancy, clean and lucid, put his attackers back on the right track, until the end of the match.
In this duel where the quality of service was, once again, at the center of the debates, the impressive series of regularity of Fabian Plak contributed to offer to the CVB 52 an interesting dynamic: enough to set up a block which also weighed in the final decision.
The Chaumontais, fully accountable winners, may have won more than three points in this match in Toulouse, particularly in terms of confidence …
