First match and very first defeat for Tours. The ruling French champ and very first in the standings last March throughout the last disruption of the guys’s League A season was shocked at the start, Saturday night on the flooring of AS Cannes throughout the first day of the champion. Following the success of Chaumont at Sète and Tourcoing in the house versus Cambrai in the North derby, TVB lost in the tie-break (25-19, 26-28, 25-18, 18-25, 15- 13) versus Cannes, who might even have actually led 2 sets to absolutely nothing, earlier in the night, if Nathan Wounaimbaina, his group’s finest gamer in this very first match, had actually not eliminated a set point at 26-25 in favor of the residents. Author of 18 points, the Touraine captain has actually long kept his group in contact. Unfortunately for TVB, its efforts were inadequate in this tie-break won 15-13 by Cannes and its brand-new sharp from Australia Lincoln Williams. With 26 indicate his rating, the Australian was the hero of this ASC success. And as if that wasn’t enough, he scored the last 2 points of the video game, when the rating was 13-13.

Poitiers, as in 2017

Bis duplicated in the other match of the night for Poitiers. Twenty-4 hours after having actually lastly accepted the title in the Coupe de France after the cancellation of the Final Four, the SPVB, as it had actually currently done in 2017, began its season preferably by returning from Ajaccio with a triumph at the opening of the season. And here too, like what occurred 3 years previously, it’s once again in the tie-break (25-22, 18-25, 21-25, 25-22, 15-8 ) that the Poitevins played an awful turn at the beginning to Ajacciens toppled in the last 2 sets by their visitors, while they were leading 2 sets to one. Like an air of deja vu.
