Back to this weekend sports performances.

MBA loses a battle

There will be no tenth consecutive win for Olga Tarasenko’s players. Saturday, on the floor of Roanne, her players struggled to get into the game, ending up even 20 points behind from their opponents in the evening at the start of the fourth and last quarter. They finally fell by 14 points (86-72) against a direct competitor to the climb, which with this success returns to the height of the Monegasques (3rd, 25 points). “The best has won” said President Eric Elena at the end of the meeting. What about the positive points of the evening? There were the offensive performances of Noémie Lemaire (24 points, as in the previous match) and Alex Tchangoue (18 points). The schedule promises to be busy for the MBA, which will play this weekend its 1/16th round of the Coupe de France Trophy in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, then meet La Tronche Meylan (2nd) and Voiron (1st) in a row.

ASM Rugby is having fun

The pace is still impressive. With 493 points scored, the ASM Rugby dominates the discussions in the Division Honneur. And this weekend performance will not say the other way around! Traveling to Salon-de-Provence, Luciano Orquera and Sylvain Masson players have made a mouthful of the red lantern (0-43)! Doubles of Maxime Salinas and Maxence Picardet (also author of three transformations), then a try of Jules Verlet (+ a conversion), Renaud Sergere and Andrea Vallarino have allowed this great success for ASM Rugby, which flies solo only five days before the season end. The SMUC, currently third, remains at ten lengths of the Monegasque leader. Now is time for a three-week-break before the next deadline, at home, against Le Beausset. As for the team B, they also won against their alter ego from Salon-de-Provence (0-24), securing their second place behind US Mourillon.

The good performances of the SNM in Paris

Last Saturday, dozen licensees of the Société nautique participated in the French Indoor Championships at the Charléty stadium in Paris. The day before, the students of the Lycée Albert Ier had distinguished themselves by taking the 7th place of the UNSS championship. “It’s a great performance, I asked them to be in the top ten. They fought hard, I was really happy for them”, said Daniel Fauché, the general coach of the SNM. Then, the next day, the young people were back in the saddle for the 2000m national championships, just like the masters. Many took the opportunity to beat their personal record, despite the impressive nature of the event with dozens and dozens of machines lined up in a gym! Julien Hardi, handi-rower of the club, became champion of France, beating also the national record. “It is worth noting that Vincent Noirot finished 10th! He had a great competition”, added Daniel Fauché, satisfied with his troops.
