Saturday 9th June. Monce en Belin. Dept 72, near Le Mans.
Our squad made their way toward Le Mans amid the downpours and thunder filled clouds. Bob and Brian finally arrived and we started the second match of the event. 4 local sides made up the competition. They were stronger and a year wiser. We were a year older! All of the matches were close, we won one,lost one and drew two, finishing third out of five, but our results coulda-woulda-shoulda been different. We suffered from not keeping the ball when the rules allowed multi-touch and in low scoring games, not taking all our scoring opportunities. There was a hint of negative discrimination toward us with the interpretation of the walking/running law and the two or three of the good, young club players tilted the balance in several games. However, the matches were all in good spirit and our hosts were again extremely hospitable, we were awarded a trophy for our inaugural victory last year… and despite the thunder and lightning, the afternoon stayed very warm and dry… Until the drive home, where we experienced a cloudburst of biblical proportions between Le Mans and Laval. A long day and thanks to the chauffeurs in the squad of :Phil, Brian, Keith, Jeff, John & Bob.
Notre équipe se dirigea vers Le Mans au milieu Des averses et Des nuages ​​remplis de tonnerre. Bob et Brian sont finalement arrivés et nous avons commencé le deuxième match de l’événement. 4 équipes locales composent la compétition. Ils étaient plus forts et une année plus sage. Nous étions un an de plus! Tous les matches étaient serrés, nous en avons gagné un, en avons perdu un et en avons tiré deux, terminant troisième sur cinq, mais nos résultats auraient up être différents. Nous avons souffert de NE pas garder Le ballon quand les règles permettaient Le multi-touch et dans les jeux à faible score, NE prenant pas toutes nos occasions de marquer. Il y avait un soupçon de discrimination négative envers nous avec l’interprétation de la loi de marche / course et les deux ou trois Des bons, jeunes joueurs du club Ont fait pencher la balance en plusieurs parties. Cependant, les matchs étaient tous de bonne humeur et nos hôtes étaient à nouveau extrêmement accueillants, nous avons reçu un trophée pour Notre victoire inaugurale l’année dernière … Et malgré Le tonnerre et les éclairs, l’après-midi EST resté très chaud et sec … Conduire à la maison, où nous avons connu une explosion de proportions bibliques entre Le Mans et Laval. Une longue journée et merci aux chauffeurs de l’équipe de: Phil, Brian, Keith, Jeff, John et Bob
