The Roannais recorded nine consecutive defeats at Orleans Hall this Saturday, April 16. Jean-Denys Choulet’s men went to Loiret to make sure their maintenance in the Jeep Elite next season, if they win.
But for that, it would be worth pointing out from a completely different state of mind. The Choraliens were still in the game at break, a whole month on the scoreboard, leading by three points (48-45). But the start of the third quarter will be bad for them, having conceded a 14-0 defeat.
Some had their minds elsewhere …
“Some had their heads somewhere, we lost all our fights,” complained Roanne’s coach as he summarized the meeting. It is impossible to win in such situationsfacing a team that played its maintenance like Chorale.
By losing 14 points, Roannais still saved the essentials, viz average point, after an 18-point victory at home against the same opponent. But Roannes were terrified, finding themselves -22 at one point in the match.
Details that could be very important, if the two teams were tied at the end of the 34th day. “There is not much good to take. otherwise, “confirmed the JDC.
There are five days left to play, and the 11 victories already collected by the Roannais could be enough to ensure their survival. The Twelve would be welcomed with greater certainty. But the Choraliens will have to have a completely different mental state to achieve this.
