Third match and third victory for the two leading French women’s handball teams! Metz and Brest both won on this 3rd day, which will last until November 1 due to the postponement of St-Amand – Toulon due to cases of covid-19, and therefore occupy the first two places of the Butagaz Energie League (remember that there will be no play-offs this season). Metz dominated Besançon by the score of 37-31 (18-13, mt) without ever trembling, the gap increasing throughout the game. Maud-Eva Copy finished top scorer in Metz, with 6 goals, while Lara Gonzalez’s 6 goals were not enough for the Bisontines, who suffered their first defeat of the season.
For its part, Brest went to win 29-22 (15-13, mt) in Nice, during a match where the Niçois held until 11-11 before gradually cracking. Two Brestoises finish with 4 goals: Djurdjina Jaukovic and Pauline Coatanea. Opposite, Marie Prouvensier and Martina Skolkova finished with 5 goals for the Azuréennes, who have won only one game in three since the start of the season.
