Beaten 70-57 this Saturday, March 11 in Rognonas, the FLPB is not excluded from the race to maintain in N3.
The good series ended on Saturday evening for Frontignan La Peyrade Basket. The Muscatier club failed to find the necessary boost to undermine a solid candidate for places of honor.
After two successive victories, the Frontignan-Lapeyrad basketball players left more serenely to visit the Rognonais, all dressed in green in their cauldron. Led 17-11 at the end of the first quarter, they continued the first period with a guilty clumsiness in three-point shooting.
Conversely, the locals did not hesitate to pile up the baskets to reach the break with an eleven point lead (36-25).
Nevertheless, if at the end of the meeting the score was increased to +13, it is necessary to note the reaction of the men of Slobodan Ocokoljic. Returning to six points in the last quarter, they were only to abdicate in the very last minutes of play.
There will remain six days, only one will pit the FLPB against a collective pointing in the first half of the classification (Montélimar). The calendar seems rather favorable, it is the kind of news that reassures.
This Saturday, March 18, a regional derby is on the menu. Already focused on the arrival of Rodez, Slobodan Ocokoljic will not fail to motivate his troops. On the grandstand side, after three weeks of scarcity, we must also prepare.
An audience on a mission
Finally, for Anthony Bourdon, sporting director and outstanding commentator of the live matches, in addition to the rigidity and the hardness of the circles of the rognonais baskets, it is the status quo in the classification that must be remembered: “We showed clumsiness , despite everything, we were able to react. At home, on Saturday with an audience that will push, we can and we must do it!”
The appointment is made, the public of the Roger-Arnaud room will also have to play its role in the maintenance operation.
