And the stadium burst into flames. Led throughout the meeting and far from the mark (-6, -7, up to -8) a good part of the match, Cesson-Rennes managed a flamboyant comeback against Limoges on Saturday evening, as part of the 8th day of the championship.
Arnaud Tabaran, intractable
Twenty minutes from the end, when the score was 22-15 for Limoges, things accelerated. The Limousins accumulated ball losses against transcended and more aggressive locals, who came back in ten minutes from -7 (15-22 in the 40th) to -1 (22-23 in the 50th). The Rennes goalkeeper, Arnaud Tabaran, at the same time became impassable, stopping several penalties.
Six minutes from time, the Bretons came back in front (25-24) for the first time thanks to Ludwig Appolinaire, before, still transcended, they offered themselves up to a four-goal lead (28-24) at two minutes from time. The last goals did not change the final result (30-27).
Limoges, who remained on a victory, will not leave the soft stomach with this defeat (currently 10th). Cesson-Rennes, on the other hand, has a second victory in a row and temporarily wins the championship podium (with 12 points, tied with PSG and Nantes).
