The Brest albatross hosted the Marseille Spartans on the 14th day of Division 1. After a completely tight performance (3-0), Pavol Mihalik’s men achieved a fifth consecutive success at the end of the year.
All seemed to be smiling at Bristow for a few weeks, however, the disastrous start to the season did not bode well. But with a new coach, executive players found and sometimes a certain amount of success, the Brits started again. Best of all, no one succeeds in stopping them until they are once again in the race for the first places in the championship. And this Wednesday, it was Marseille who paid the price for the very good form of Boutros Albatross.
Thanks to their attack-oriented game, the Fujians posed many problems for the Finestrians in the first period. While the visitors enjoyed several minutes of numerical superiority, Jerry Plasik was very attentive in his cages as usual. On the offensive level, the Brest albatross remained completely timid and could not resolve the situation. So the score was still zero after the first twenty minutes.
Siegfriedt and Tremblay give them an advantage
Nicolas Favarin and his partners quickly made the difference in the second half to take advantage. After a great teamwork, Nicholas Siegfriedt opened the scoring with great accuracy (1-0, 22nd). For their part, the Marseillais could no longer advance their game and began to suffer from the dominance of the Albatross of Brest. Just before the siren, Mathieu Tremblay went for a double ante to put his team away (2-0, 40).
The Brest albatross joins the top four
Ceren, the Bretonians managed the third half with an iron fist. And in the last moments, when the Marseille cage was empty, Jacob Frana scored the last goal of the evening (3-0, 60th) at the almost packed Rincla stadium. With this well-deserved success, the Albatross at Brest confirms a little more his very good condition of form. They are now fourth in Division 1 and only five points behind Dunkirk, the championship leader. Ville Saukko’s teammates will take on Yétis du Mont-Blanc on January 6, with ambitions to continue their impressive climb up the rankings.
