On Wednesday evening, the REC men’s volleyball team hosted Saint-Jean-Dillac in the first round of the Coupe de France. And after leading 2-0, Rennes finally lost 3-2.
After its victory this weekend against Nancy (3-1), REC entered the Coupe de France against Saint-Jean-Dillac, resident in Ligue B and currently on the championship podium. While the British quickly took the lead in the game, they finally collapsed at the end of the game after many changes within the workforce.
Superior scoring at the start of the match
Quentin Jarrett and his teammates started the game right. Applied, serious and lethal, they suggested a real fight with Illacais, but in the end of the suspense it was Rin who lost the first round (31/29). The duel was still in contention in the second set which went on again in favor of Récistes (25/23). So the locals went ahead 2-0 and thought they were getting close to qualifying for the second round of the competition.
Renewed team bows
At this time, Quentin Marion decided to make several changes to his training, even forming a second team to avoid potential injuries as much as possible. The features of the meeting were completely reversed, and the visitors returned (25/18 and 25/21). Then the Bretilliens and Girondins broke up in the deciding round (7/15).
More consistent, Illacais managed to win qualification for the second round of the Coupe de France. However, the coach of the Rennes club expressed his desire to salute the position of his substitutes, especially since this competition was not a priority for the club of Rennes this season. However, it will be necessary for Philippe Toytoga and his partners to get back on track on Saturday, during the second division match against Martigues (10).
