The cadets of the Armagnac-Ténarèze Entente lost in the regional final, without demerit. Back on an almost perfect course.
The EAT cadets ended their season the same way they had, with a one-point loss.
Defeated 19 to 18 at the Maynats on October 2, the young Armagnacais lost 24 to 25 against Beaumont-de-Lomagne in the Occitanie final in Graulhet.
Despite this failure in the final, the results are more than satisfactory for the first year of the Entente Armagnac Ténarèze which brings together 5 Armagnac clubs (ACBC, Condom, Eauze, Gondrin and Vic-Fezensac) with a total of 13 victories out of 14 in the phase de poule, his last prime minister of Occitania. During the final stages they easily got rid of Balma Quint-Fonsegrives (55 to 0) at Condom in 16th, then disposing (41 to 17) during the 8th final at Castelnau-d’Auzan against the Toulousains of Rassemblement NET (Lalande Aucamville -L’Union-Vallée du Girou), then went on to the 1/4 final with another success (40 to 13) at Vic-Fezensac against the solid Tarnais of Saint-Juéry before winning their ticket for the final with Thau-Poussan (28 to 6) in the 1/2 final at Villenouvelle. Thanks to these successes they obtain the right to play in the final against Beaumont-de-Lomagne who finished 4th during the regular phase.
This final had several twists and turns until the Lomagnols scored a converted last try which allowed them to lead by one point a few minutes from the final whistle. Two minutes from the end of this meeting, the Armagnac striker had the opportunity to replace his colors in the lead, but the defeat did not succeed. In the end, the Tarn and Garonne are champions and raise the shield. The Gersois are content with a cup which is still a good memory and has allowed 5 clubs from this remote corner of the Gers to make people talk about Armagnac and Ténareze in Occitanie.
