The H constrained to draw

This Friday evening, as part of the 28th day of Liqui Moly StarLigue, Nantes, still in the running for the title, had to settle for a draw against Nîmes (28-28). Just like Chambéry at Cesson Rennes (26-26).

Nantes remains in the race for the title of champion of France. This Friday evening, as part of the 28th day of Liqui Moly StarLigue, the H was however forced to draw, against Nîmes (28-28). In the event of a victory, the Nantes residents could have temporarily taken first place in the French championship standings from PSG. Eventually, there will be nothing.

The Nîmes, who currently occupy fifth place in the standings, made life difficult for their evening hosts, with their defense well in place and an attack also in form. Ten minutes from the end, the visitors even had a two-goal lead, and several opportunities to take a +3 lead. Nantes’ equalizer at 25-25 only came six minutes from the end of this particularly tight encounter. The H then turned the situation around, to take, on several occasions, a small lead.

Minne certainly thought he had handed victory to his people

The Nantes even thought they could win when they led 28-27, one minute from the end, with a jump shot from Aymeric Minne. But it was the Egyptian left-back from Nîmes Ahmed Hesham who, just 25 seconds from the siren, finally put the two teams in a tie (28-28). For his sixth and last goal of this game. On the very last possession of H, Lucas De La Bretèche was then sanctioned by the referees, for a walk.

Nothing is lost for Nantes, at the end of the season. The people of Nantes even keep their destiny in their hands to continue dreaming of the title. At the same time, Chambéry, fourth, snatched a draw from Cesson Rennes, ninth (26-26). Twelfth, Créteil lost to Ivry, thirteenth (29-23). Istres, penultimate, carried out a very good operation, taking the best of Aix, eighth (32-29). Finally, Sélestat, red lantern, won in Chartres, fourteenth (30-32).
