“There are defeats which are as formative as the victories, I hope that this disappointment will have that effect on the guys,” blurted out after losing to Annecy Eddy Martin, the TBHC coach. His speech visibly touched his proteges and the reaction of the Bélougas did not drag on. Traveling to an old rival, Roanne, the Blagnaco-Toulouse have not repeated the mistakes of last week and managed to combine this blow defensive rigor and offensive realism. After a few minutes of observation, Riendeau opened the scoring on a service from Blaser and then almost without respite captain Flaury Bermond showed the procedure to follow by doubling the bet. The Roannais managed to reduce the mark just before the end of the first period, but the TBHC had made the perfect start and the second act would confirm this stranglehold on the meeting. The recruits were in the spotlight with a goal from the Canadian Gauthier then the double from his compatriot Riendeau before a new unit from the Latvian defender Kevlis.
In a clean match without a collision, the Bélougas recited their hockey despite the permanent threat of the formidable striker of the Foxes, Ouimet, author of a double. Always well contained, the Loire vanguard could not do more damage and nothing else made its best entry into the top 10 scorers of the division with a hat-trick. A great operation for the TBHC which with this success returns to Roanne and takes 4th place in the standings before receiving the Lynx de Valence next week at Jacques-Raynaud. Then, it will be necessary to catch up with the meeting against Val-Vanoise, again at home, (previously postponed due to an accident on the Savoyard bus) on Wednesday 8 December.
