The Paris Mousquetaires lose at home to Stuttgart in ELF

The Paris Mousquetaires, a brand new franchise of the European League of Football (ELF) and the first French professional team, played the first match in their history at home, this Saturday afternoon at the Jean-Bouin stadium (16th arrondissement). In front of 4,200 spectators, who had gathered in one of the side stands, the Parisians nevertheless lost (20-29) against the Stuttgart Surge. They cracked late in the game, conceding a touchdown then a safety (when the ball carrier is tackled in his own in-goal).

Bertellin’s acrobatic touchdown

The German franchise, which was born at the same time as the ELF, two years ago (without shining there but having made a big recruitment this season), marked the first, on reception of Louis Geyer. But the Musketeers immediately reacted and equalized on a reception from Jefferson Alexandre, served by quarterback Zach Edwards in the first quarter, concluded with the score of 6-6. Before the break, Paris passed in front, after an acrobatic reception from Rémi Bertellin and a touchdown converted by hand (14-6).

The next sequence of the Musketeers was going to be decisive, with five minutes to play. But the successful safety by the Surge, obtained thanks to a sack on Zach Edwards, shattered Paris’ dreams of victory. A week after winning at the Cologne Centurions (24-17), the Parisians suffered defeat this time. Next match for the Musketeers, Sunday June 18 on the Rhein Fire ground in Düsseldorf.
