Harvest football and rugby: a bitter weekend

Last weekend, three glues were organized on the very sick lawn of the Louis-Baumes stadium. The least we can say is that the harvest ended with a bitter taste.

The first glue concerned the CEP Foot which made its first outing in the league against Vauvert, a formation which had succeeded well last season.

The Gardois imposed their collective game to lead 3-0 before suffering a comeback given by Thomas Morellet, the young goalkeeper, not yet 18 years old. He won a duel in the 60th minute before stopping a penalty in stride which sounded the local alarm clock.

“We did not manage to place our collective game for almost an hour, but then we pushed our opponents by imposing our physical freshness, savored Philippe Morellet. Our young goalkeeper achieved two feats that boosted the whole group, we could even have won.”

It was also a bad day for the CPLR: beaten last Sunday in Leucate, the CPLR was hoping to take its revenge on La Salanque who had ejected it from the 1/2 finals of the French championship following too much indiscipline. Bis repetita Sunday: the Héraultais have removed the faults and offered 18 gift points to visitors who did not ask for so much. The CPLR certainly signed two tries including a penalty in the 40th minute and three penalties, but gave the Catalans the stick to be beaten, while victory stretched out its arms to the siren, infuriating!

“We are too undisciplined”, cursed at the end of the meeting Philippe Guarriguenc, the coach. “We came up against a very good team”, noted for his part Jean-Charles Notolan, deputy son.

A finding approved by the local public, but is it necessary to show so much indiscipline!

The CPLR 2, which had won 12/10 in Leucate, lost 20/30 against the Catalans who only lined up 18 players on the score sheet instead of 23.
