Thursday evening, at Michel-Bendichou, against the Aurillacois, the Columérins were dropped at the end of the first act: 0 to 16. No pétanque on the lawn, but there was enough to get the balls going. It’s hard to imagine the outcome and the Columérine victory 27 to 22.
The Columérins who, for the moment, had a negative record at the start of the season: one success (Grenoble, 27-19) for two defeats (at Biarritz 35-18; at Valence-Romans 26-22). The fate of this Thursday evening’s meeting should thus allow the players of the Colombe club to increase this negative balance sheet, and to rebalance the trend.
The Haut-Garonnais, beaten on the last day, intended to bounce back this Thursday, September 7 at home, for the 4th day of Pro D2. They won 27 to 22.
A resurgence materialized by the strong achievements of Paolo Parpagiola (20 years old) for his first in Pro D2 and Anthony Coletta, the returning one, before a third try signed by Thomas Larrieu in trickster mode to seal the fate of the match.
Thomas Larrieu, Hugo Pirlet, Robert Harley, Janse Roux and the young Pierre-Emmanuel Pacheco (what energy!) Paolo Parpagiola, Mathis Galthié — Baptiste Serrano entered at the end of the first quarter of an hour to replace Max Auriac who was badly hit on his knees — thus came out of a winning bench.
The Colomiers team had just won against Aurillac (27 to 22), recovering a 16-point outlay recorded until the 47th minute… “We were not in the rhythm and we made too many mistakes in conquest and ball in hand,” lamented fly-half Brett Herron.
Success for Colomiers against Aurillac 27 to 22, an incredible turnaround for the locals, trailing by 16 points at the break! While Aurillac maintained a form of pressure, Julien Sarraute’s men showed a completely different face to beat the visitors to the wire (27 to 22). The Cantaliens will bring back a deserved defensive bonus but which will perhaps not console the hope of a very close victory.
The main thing is there, the trip to Dax on Wednesday to close the first block of the season.
