Oloron, who changed coach this week, is stunned and accumulates bad choices. The Haut-Béarnais however activated their heads before the break (10-17, 30th), before confirming when they returned from the locker room (16-19, 40th).
Orthez then shows character and wards off danger (16-21, 42nd), even if the Orange and Black insist (21-25, 51st), without however reversing the trend (22-30, 57th).
“We mastered the first act well,” rejoices the Orthézien coach Peio Bordagaray. “Oloron is a team that has values and a soul, but we were able to contain their revolt. It is encouraged for the future. »
“We were penalized a lot at the start of the match”, analyzes the Oloronais rear Simon Labedan. “We had a very good reaction. We must continue to work, the objective remains to stay in N3. »
Thanks to this success, the Orthéziens consolidate their position as runner-up to the leader Arcachon/La Teste.
