more than a success for Elan Aveyron

In a direct competitor to the maintenance, the EAB hit hard this Sunday during the 15th day of National 3 women, not without being scared.

When Élan Aveyron and Grandfonds face each other, you always have to wait for the last seconds to know the winner. The rule was again verified this Sunday afternoon in Castelculier in the Lot-et-Garonne, after a match won by the EAB on the smallest of the gaps, 75-76.

A deserved victory for the Aveyron coach Nicolas Flottes who made the performance of his protégés a peak. “We are producing our best attacking game of the seasonhe said at the end of the game. By playing super fair, with a good alternation, and little loss of balls. Grandfonds also produced good basketball, which made for an interesting game.

Counting up to 12 lengths ahead, the Aveyronnaises nevertheless failed to keep the locals at a distance to avoid a stressful end to the match.

A stressful ending

The worst almost happened in the last minute, when EAB still led by seven points with 55 seconds remaining. The time to lose two consecutive balls directly used by the Lot-et-Garonnaises who scored twice at three points. It was even the latter who obtained the last possession and attempted a three-point shot. Fortunately for the Rouergates, the end was not cruel for them.

A seventh success which represents an excellent operation in the race to maintain for the protected Fleets, now sixth with two successes ahead of the first relegated. The reception of the red lantern, Mont-de-Marsan, from this Saturday evening (8 p.m.) at La Primaube, appears as an opportunity to get a little closer to the objective.
