Opposing emotions at the end of this derby

Share of points, everyone is happy (1-1). Or not. The contrast was striking on Saturday after the derby between Saint-Sulpice and the AMTFA in Moletrincade. On the one hand there was the frustration of the visitors, disappointed to have missed their last chance to move up to R1, despite the leader’s new misstep. On the other, the joy of the locals, who celebrated this point for a long time in the locker room, surely synonymous with maintaining.

Despite the stakes on each side, we did not see a great football match, the first heat and the state of the pitch not helping. The first half was therefore a succession of uninteresting long balls. Despite a missed opportunity on each side, it is the locals who will take the advantage in this meeting. On a corner played with two players for Saint-Sulpice, the center is well headed by Bilel Henider at the far post (1-0, 43rd).

An attack-defense

The AMTFA changes gear in the second half. Jonathan Lacourt makes a double change and passes to three behind with very high full-backs. We are witnessing a real attack-defense, waves follow one another on the goals of the locals who only operate on the counterattack. From the start, Marianella hits the bar with a volley from the edge of the area, then sends her free kick just over. The Isatis manage to equalize through their will-o-the-wisp which converts a penalty fifteen minutes from the end. We then expect to see a second goal for the visitors, but the locals get back into the game and Henider twice fails to give his team a victory (82nd, 90th). Just like N’Djalong who, alone at the far post, could have allowed AMTFA to win.

“Tonight (Saturday), I didn’t see a team that was fighting for the climb, railed Jonathan Lacourt. The USSS scored on half an opportunity. It was not a good match in terms of content. had situations, hit the bar but we have to do more.” For his part, Frédéric Larrieu was satisfied with the performance of his men: “We took a good point against a team that was playing uphill. We were solid at the back. We have been intelligent, heroic for two games against big teams. of the chicken. This should keep us going.”
