Football: Asfac must quickly recover from this Coupe de l’Hérault final

Both teams had one half each. But Fabrègues won the fateful session. FREE NOON – G.M.

The Muscatiers lost on penalties this Wednesday, May 8 against Fabrègues.

The Gardiole derby will not have raised the crowd this Wednesday, May 8. However, she had moved en masse to Clermont-l’Hérault, where the final of the Coupe de l’Hérault senior was taking place.

A finale which did not seem to be a priority

In a rural setting, the Causses in the background, Lake Salagou and the Cirque de Mourèze not far away, the postcard was worth the trip. Yes, but the public did not come to do tourism. And, very quickly, he understood that for Asfac and AS Fabrègues, the concern was elsewhere.

Two days before the end of the championship, including one scheduled for this Saturday, it is ultimately logical that the commitment was not as expected. Numbers already reduced on both sides, maintenance to be ensured, so many good reasons to confine ourselves to a "gentlemen's duel".

The Frontignanais largely dominated the first period, with the support of Éole, they proved to be the most dangerous. The "Blood and Gold", more on their feet in the second, in turn tried to make the difference. The Muscatière defense, notably with the central hinge composed of Joris Delport and Kenzo Sablayrolles, proved intractable.

Two teams close

For Frontignan coach Greg Tanagro, it was disappointment that prevailed at the end of the meeting: « I'm disappointed, the players too. Losing on penalties (Editor's note: 0-0, then 3 tabs to 0) is not pleasant, especially since ;there was room. We had a good half with impact, intentions and desire but we didn't take advantage of it. The state of the ground did not favor us. It's a shame but that's what the Cup is, you need a winner even when the two teams are close.

As soon as we returned to the locker room, Saturday's trip to Seysses was discussed and the shot over the crossbar was forgotten, just like the two saves by the opposing goalkeeper… We moved on!
