Like last season, they will participate in the first federal round of the competition.

A complex first act

A worthy qualification but earned in a way contrasting regarding the physiognomy of the meeting. “A first period where we play with fear in our stomachs, with fear of doing something wrong,” lamented the Ornais coach.

“We cannot speed up our offensive movements. We have a chance to open the scoring and we are doing it. Defensively, we are in place. Then, we get a gag goal. The only downside of this meeting. »

If Vertes quickly got back into the game through Manon Ryba whose header just went over the edge (1′), the rest of this first act was sluggish. A consecutive strike (10′, 12′, 16′, 19′, 25′), sure, but no danger until Mélissa Renard could not find fault in a constructed action (1-0, 36′) after seeing his free kick fail the bar (31′).

Normal. Like this cagade, the trademark of Elisa Monin’s teammates, allowing the visitors, harmless until then, to return (1-1, 44′).

Another face in the second half

During the break, the partners of Mamy Ndiaye, newcomer, showed another face back from the locker room. “In the second half, the girls returned to the pitch with completely different intentions. And, our offensive trident, shy until then, was expressing thunder,” added Jérémie Monnier.

Already a goalscorer, Mélissa Renard turned setter and delivered a sweet three to her fellow attackers. In the first, Joely Bruletti finished a good collective movement (2-1, 56′). In the second, Mamy Ndiaye sent the leather into the back of the net with a furious and authoritarian whim (3-1, 60′). And in the end, the sprite Joely Bruletti offered a double by deceiving the Seinomarine goalkeeper with a flat foot well felt (4-1, 67 ‘).
