Race for the score

However, Cherbourgeois looked to have entered the match well when Jason Muel opened the scoring in the first minute, but that was the only time they took the lead. Bordelais then took the score themselves.

The gap between the 16th and 25th minutes of the game, from then on the home side, widened considerably he scored to 7:2 (from 8-6 to 15-8), which allowed the Girondins to create a significant halftime deficit (18-10).

Unfortunately, JSC could not cut the lead to less than 5 goals (21-15, 39th) after that, despite a red card from Bordeaux, and lost by a final score of 31-20.

It all came down to the goalkeeper, Gauthier Ivah was in an unusually poor state (1 save in 19 shots), while Bordeaux goalkeeper Ivan Vekic stopped 19 of Cherbourg’s 39 shots.
