Facing the full Dukes and engaging in a duel at a distance with Rouen for 2nd place, they are again condemned to make up for their bench deficit bravely. What they do in the first period, without really being dangerous, but without being crucified either. It’s all about holding on and taking advantage of the slightest opening.
Yes, but there you go, Halley is here. Well there. The Canadian in full swing, infiltrates the Fleury along the band, takes two Bordeaux defenders in speed by transplanting on goal and adjusts Fouquerel opposite skylight. Angers found the flaw in individual talent (1-0, 23rd). The Boxers may engage more intensely, like this big box of Vitou on Farnier who has a hard time reaching his bench (40th), their efforts remain unsuccessful in the second half.
Nothing seems settled before the final round… Even if Angers in a recall under the foot and did not really force his talent until then, being only too rarely under pressure. But the scenario was almost written in advance: by remaining faithful to their work ethic, the Dukes maintain the rhythm and the hot situations in the offensive zone multiply, until the young Sarliève doubles the bet from close range (2- 0.50and).
Olivier Dimet’s group once again demonstrated their character, by not giving up in the final minutes. Spinozzi sends a full bezel missile and keeps hoping for an incredible comeback 2 minutes from the buzzer. Dead time, exit of the goalkeeper, great pressure and even 28 seconds at 6 against 4, nothing helped. Bordeaux bows with honors. Once again… The frustration of the scorer and of Captain Lévesque at the sound of the siren is eloquent. Bordeaux continue its Way of the Cross.
