Another match for history. After the success at the Coupe de France Trophy, which assured them of a first national title, the players of theUSBD Alençon (Orne) wrote, Saturday May 11, 2024a new page in the club’s history.

Cassandra Vêtu’s teammates validated their rise to Ligue 2 with a victory against Monaco, with a score of 63-46in the Louvrier candy box.

A defense still at the level

A Rhennamian credo or leitmotif (Rhennamesque) is sufficient in itself to describe this third opposition between Ornaises and representatives of the Rock: “Defend together and play together. »

Defense is the Alençonnaises’ business and they were once again uncompromising in this area, whether at the 3-point line or in the paint. Yet best attack in the divisionthe Rocher team was limited for the second time in a row below 50 points.

A generally controlled meeting

At the opposite, a good sharing of leather and an oiled collective allowed Lélia Lesueur and company to take charge of the match and then its management. It was also after two free throws from the former player from Mondeville (Calvados) that the Prefecturales definitively took control of the match, with an advantage of 10 units (26-16, 13′), to not never let go again.

And now, what to do after the goal is achieved? “We want to win our two home games in front of our crowd,” warns coach Fayssal Rhennam.

Half of the way is done and all that remains – so easy to write – is to accomplish the second to once again commune with those whose fervor does not fade game after game and season after season.

I would like to thank once again our audience who were once again extraordinary this evening. He carried us and helped us turn the match around in the important moments.

“It’s an exceptional evening for the club, the city and the department. Especially, after the Coupe de France title, obtained 15 days ago. »

The icing on the cake was that the players were also able to celebrate their title as French National 1 champions, following Le Havre’s victory over Villeurbanne (85-59).

A first here too for the Alençon club which, at this rate, will soon run out of pages in its history book.
