According to Aline Chatel
Stade Malherbe Caen women’s team is he better this season than last year? For verification, if it is verifiable, it will surely be necessary to wait for the biggest closings of the season.
Before facing Cherbourg and Quevilly, but also brushing up against the long-awaited Coupe de France, hosting Rouen Plateau Est on Sunday 23 October 2022 could represent the first test, albeit the three victories that the seinomarine team has recorded until then. was not entirely convincing.
A hat-trick for Alizée Leroty
Malherbistes did not experience any major difficulties in dominating the opponent in the relatively well-stocked Venoix stadium (4:0). Caen’s youth excelled again as Alizée Leroty offered a hat-trick while Zina Catherine completed the mark. “The first half (3:0) was interesting, says Théodore Genoux. We made it easy by scoring quickly. In the second half, I regret that we didn’t add more strength to the score. But overall it was a good game. »
Coach Caen now knows the potential of the group, which he only discovered at the end of training. “The team is progressing, we are on target,” he said. The rejuvenation that took place around Zina Catherine, Marion Le Ber or Lisa Bugna, while waiting for the return of the very promising Juliette Arthur*, suggests an interesting edge of evolution. Malherbe also has to integrate a game project quite clearly different from that which has been promoted in the past.
I want to play more directly in transition phases, with more intensity. The team is starting to understand what we are looking for, which is positive. The only downside is that we are not offensive enough yet.
So far, Stade Malherbe shines above all with its defensive solidity. He hasn’t conceded a single goal this season. The 22 goals scored in four games is slightly misleading as Red Lantern Thiberville got 12 in the first leg…
Conditions are met
If Théodore Genoux expects a little more from his offensive players, who “can be even more prolific”, then Caen is on the agenda. And his coach is thrilled.
Stade Malherbe is a really well structured club, better than some D2 clubs. We are lucky to have a very good training center, gym available in the training center… We are good!
On Sunday, October 30, 2022 (12:30), Stade Malherbe will take on Marigny in the Coupe de France. It should be a formality. Three weeks later, Quevilly will almost (already) play his season in Venoix. The highly anticipated QRM players stumbled to the mat on Sunday, October 23 against Cherbourg (2-4). The R1 champion will enter the future division 3 next season.
