This weekend, the Landerneau women lost on the wire against Angers (75-73) in LFB while Kimber won the memorable success against Grace Souvel in Pro B (119-115). A look at the key results for our Breton clubs.
Landrno It collapses at the end of the meeting
Les Filles de Breizh can have many regrets after their performance on Sunday against Angers. They controlled most of the match, taking an eight length lead early in the final quarter (56-48). But Landernéennes again showed irregularity in important moments, especially at the defensive level.
Thanks to the blazing Alexis Peterson (29 points and 7 assists), the Angevines were able to definitively take the lead three seconds after the buzzer (73-75). After being defeated for the fifth time this season in the space of six matches, Wani Muganguzi’s players are facing a complicated start to the league, just like last season.
Kimber Wins a crazy match
UJAP Quimper and Gries-Souffel undoubtedly played one of the games of the year. After a meeting full of twists and turns, Aries finally won (119-115) after three overtimes! But it all started badly for Laurent Fuerst’s men. The Finisterians dominated at the start of the game, and were trailing by fourteen points at the dawn of the fourth quarter.
But Théo Léon (28 points, 5 assists and 4 steals) and his partners came back to their opponents thanks to the impudent success. When the siren sounded, the two teams were still neck and neck (87-87). And at the end of the suspense period, the Breton team managed their fifth success of the season. Quimper is currently eighth in Pro B and will travel to Chalon-sur-Saône (3rd) the next day.
URB falls from above against Tarbes
NM1 leader, URB moved alongside him to the Tarbes for a trap match against a team having difficulty at the start of the season. Ren started the meeting on the right end by showing a lot of seriousness (22-18, 10). They controlled outrageously on the rebound, then slumped in the second and third quarters allowing the Locals to build a comfortable lead (52-69, 30).
And even if the Bretilliens found consistency towards the end of the game, the awakening was too late. URB lost by a score of 77-87 thus conceding their third loss of the year. Despite the misstep, Joffrey Sclear’s teammates retained the top spot in the championship alongside Loon Plage.
Vitré continues its climb
As for her, the Green Division won at home on Rounds (75-65). Fabian Calvez’s players dominated the debates to claim their second success in the space of a week. They once again relied on the ease of beautiful three-point play to play tricks on their opponents.
Ten minutes after the siren, Veterans already had a good margin to maneuver which was slightly reduced towards the end of the match (63-49). With this positive result, Aurore continues its return to the league. Bretons are currently ranked fourth in the NM1, just a tiny point off the podium. On December 16, they will face Challans (5th), a direct competitor at the top of the table.
The CEP Lorient act of his opponent
Finally, after a poor start to the match, CEP Lorient was able to raise their game to crush Les Sables-d’Olonne. Skilled at shooting, Morbihannais was on top as they headed back to the locker room (47-37). The gap then widened under Quentin Hank’s imperial momentum by 3 points (6/7).
The Vendeans failed to develop their game in the offensive phase and broke their teeth in Lorient’s defence. The final score is 92-66 for Philip McCourant’s men who resume their march forward after two straight setbacks.
