France: tie break victory for Nice and Chaumont, three points for Tourcoing in Round 15

2 min read

Due to COVID-19, only 4 of the 7 scheduled games were played for Round 15 of French Ligue A.

The real surprise of the evening was recorded by Nice, who take an amazing victory on the field of the very favorite Narbonne (still without Zanotti, but with Bassereau back in the sextet), with a sensational comeback after 2-1 and then 16-10, 21-16 and 24-22 in the fourth set.
Decisive the entrances from the bench of the outside hitters Dukic (who ended the match with 7 points, 1 block, 1 ace and 71% in attack), and Captain Marshall.
However, MVP of the match was a player with Narbonne’s jersey: Aymen Boguerra, with 20 points and a good 65% in attack.

The other tie-break was played in Paris where Chaumont won 17-19 after the sixth match ball against the hosts. MVP of the match Mergarejo with 29
points, 63% in attack, 2 blocks and 1 aces.

Three points instead for Tourcoing (despite the absence of Winkelmuller), who defeated the most remodeled Toulouse (without diagonal Thiaguinho and Daniel Cagliari, and with setter Paul ‘Hollander, of the training center) despite
making things difficult in the second part of the 3rd set (from 11-6 to 32-34 with 5 match points failed) and in the first part of the 4th (with a disadvantage
of 10-13). The man of the match (also deservedly named MVP of the match) was Gabriel Vaccari with 26 points, 2 aces, 2 blocks and 58% in attack.

The situation continues to get worse for defending champions Cannes, more and more last in the standings after losing also in Cambrai, 3-1.
MVP and top scorer the last purchase of the hosts Mitrasinovic, while the team of coach Matijasevic is still waiting for the arrival of the new opposite Jimenez (read more here).
