Villeneuve d’Ascq, Roche Vendée and Angers won their second victory in two games this Saturday, while Lyon-ASVEL conceded their second defeat. For its part, Bourges easily won at Landerneau.
What a start to the season for Villeneuve d’Ascq! For the second time in two games, the Northerners let their opponent score just 48 points! After Charnay last week, it was Lattes-Montpellier who paid the price for the defense of ESBVA, losing 80-48. The Héraultaises held on during the first quarter (21-19), where they even managed to lead by a few points, but Villeneuve d’Ascq, signed a second quarter-time of fire, won 23-5. The Northerners, led by a Sandra Ygueravide Viana at 19 points (5/8 to 3pts) and 5 rebounds, continued their momentum after returning from the locker room and won the last two quarters 18-11 then 18-13, facing a BLMA who never believed in a return, despite Caroline Hériaud’s 15 points and 6 assists.
Lyon-ASVEL falls, Bourges recovers
On the other hand, nothing is going for Lyon-ASVEL, which was beaten 95-69 at Charleville-Mézières in one of the shocks of this 2nd day. The Flames won 95-69 by making the difference in the last three quarters (47-38, mt), and thanks in particular to an Evelyn Akhator with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Opposite, Julie Allemand had to settle for 12 points. Beaten at Roche Vendée in the opening, Bourges recovered well by going to win 78-53 at Landerneau in a one-sided match, where the Berruyères were already leading 27-14 after ten minutes. The French international Iliana Rupert shone, with 16 points on the clock (21pts for Teana Shari Muldrow on the Breton side).
The comeback d’Angers
Roche Vendée signed its second victory in two games, crushing St-Amand on the score of 90-65, with notably excellent first and third quarters (23-14 then 23-8). Ziomara Morrison finished with 24 points and Elin Gustavsson with 16. Finally, Angers are the third team with two wins in two games, following their 81-76 success after extra time against Tarbes. The Angevines lost the first quarter 11-17, then were led 27-37 at half-time, and finally passed in front at the end of the fourth quarter (69-68), before Tarbes snatched the extension on a shot 3-point (71-71). But the Angevines dominated this extension by a score of 10-5 and won. Alexis Peterson finished top scorer in the match with 22 points (17pts for Ana Tadic on the Tarbais side).
