After the excitement of the U18F the day before, this is the second big match the Senior Men will have to offer with a stratospheric performance from Coach Miloud’s side who have claimed their fourth win in a row! Elan Chalon checked this matchup on his schedule and brought in a three-player reinforcement from the floor above… In addition, the guys from ABC have the best QT all year (28-20), defensively ready, agile behind the arc. with Alex starting with his number and name inside to control the weather. Mistakes forced Coach Miloud to review his strategy, which the locals used to win the 2nd QT (20 to 7) and return to the locker room with 1 point.

As the second act begins, the Creuzotins return to match-starting mode, JB giving his body until exhausted, Toy and Remy mobilizing inside to keep the ball rolling for their teammates. The match is intense, exciting, the “bus and a half” of Creusotin’s supporters sound and trumpet… For visitors in these ten minutes from 17 to 8.

It was deserved, built and mastered… JB gave so much that the firemen are obliged to come and give it some air… it will be good, that’s the generosity of the effort… there is joy… But do it so well ! BRAVO guys… Those who came for you didn’t come in vain… Two great emotions in two days… and if only this was a club! … Share the emotions!

U15M: CB Chalon 1: 30 – AB Creusot: 66

The Creuzotes had their best in the first half (6-20 and 2-12), playing especially good individual “Collective” defense… and worst of all, just controlling the transition later in the locker room, but the offensive game down a notch in terms of consistency, especially where some individual moves underpinned a game where a lot of turnovers and bad choices in attack left a mixed performance in the 2nd MT … still won (14). -22 and 8-12) and without really forcing. 3rd win in a row, however, in this second round, a meeting dedicated to the group and Maxim, who came out injured a few minutes after the end of the meeting, but whose will and desire to return quickly to find the group will see him recover quickly.
