In front of a well-furnished audience, the valiant soldiers of the UCF fought like lions against an imposing Bigourdane armada; but in the ranks of Comminge the artilleryman watched over the grain, Vincent Alary the aptly named author of all the points for his team. The locals took the advantage on 2 penalties, the visitors on a counter assassin scored in the 10th minute a try converted under the posts, Vincent Alary presented two penalties, restored the advantage to his 12 to 7 score at the break. The service scorer furnished the planchot adding two other penalties, plus a drop goal. Jullian tried to undermine the “red and blue” pack with an imposing first line but Captain Victor Vidal and his troops arched and annihilated the disorderly attacks of the visitors. Winger Alves still managed to find the fault. The last ten minutes will be suffocating. The center Bertrand Pages on white card left his comrades at the worst time. But the bench provided substitutes for UCF did the job and comprised a solid lineup from a distance that would suffer many others. Match with a perfect correction, excellent refereeing by Tom Sournac. The coaches Thierry Raufast, Christophe Séguéla, the leaders, the supporters can be proud of their group.
