On behalf of the 8th day, the SPN Vernon (Eure), head of the hen in Prenationalreceived the Déville team which had beaten the Vernonnais by one point in the first leg.

For men of Jean-Philippe Taillemanthis meeting smelled of a trap match, where the relaxation and lack of concentration of the locals were going to be sanctioned by the visitors (19-16 at the end of the first quarter).

Subsequently, Déville’s team proved to be very dangerous. Despite a flamboyant attack from SPN Vernon, the opponents manage to stay in his wake at halftime (46-35).

“Defensive Blitz”

Upon returning from the locker room, the coach, as usual, asked for more investment in defense. Instructions heard by his players who were going to get in tune. The defensive stops being more and more pressing, the offensive game of the visitors was falling apart and Vernon imposed his rhythm (63-50 at the end of the third quarter).

In the last act, the last ten minutes went perfectly with the game plan of the technical staff: namely chaining defensive stops, running to develop fast play in attack and more patience on the half-court game. By conceding 11 points in ten minutes, SPN Vernon has become the best defense in the championship and at the same time, consolidates its leading position in the standings (final score: 83-61).

Tonight, we concentrated on our main objective: that is to say, to impose our defensive blitz in order to be able to develop fast play. I am reassured because our bench players have proven that they could contribute. Kudos to them.

Vernon will have to confirm his good form at the moment by driving to Gravenchon, Saturday December 3, 2022.
