Draft throughout the meeting, Lattes-Montpellier will only remember the result, against Landerneau (70-57). A success that allows them to take the lead in the championship, while waiting for the Lyon match this Saturday.

Back in their sports hall in Lattes, two weeks after a poor performance against the Flames Carolo, the Gazelles wanted to temporarily take the lead in the LFB, beating Landerneau.

Problem: the Bretons, penultimate in the ranking, had not come to the Hérault as expiatory victims. “There are no small teams in this leaguerecognized Migna Touré, after the final buzzer. They offered us a lot of adversity in a very tough game.”

✅ VICTOOOOIRE (70 to 57)!

The start of the Hérault match was moribund, like Élodie Naigre guilty of three loss of balls in the first two minutes. The fault also of Breton women who bravely played their chances and threw themselves on all the balloons.

A lot of work for the “serpilleros” and a headache for Valéry Demory (7-10 after 5 min). Fortunately for the Latois coach, the entry of his Belgian duo Vanloo-Linskens, gave a new dynamic to BLMA (15-10 then 21-14).

Poor first half

Clumsy and beaten in intensity by Brianna Day and the “Violettes”, the Gazelles saw their opponents of the day pass them (21-22 then 28-31). Returning from the locker room with what is their worst half since the start of the season, Romane Berniès and her teammates continued to stutter their basketball (34-38).

With wear and tear, by tightening its defense, Lattes-Montpellier managed to get back in front, with a Kyara Linskens who was heating up (48-44). Tired after a big burst of energy against one of the best teams in the championship, the Landernéennes ended the third quarter with a delay of 10 points (54-44).

A gap that Julie Vanloo, in a role of organizer more than scorer, and the Gazelles, kept despite the impact of Dongue in the racket for the Bretonnes (60-50).

Finally, Haley Peters, who scored his 1000th point tonight in the colors of Latto-Montpellier, just like Migna Touré, put an end to the visitors’ hopes (70-57). “Everyone is playing their life at the end of the season, and the month of April will be decisive”concluded Touré, satisfied with a new victory.
