A new sports weekend, excluding football. Le Parisien invites you to analyze and decipher the results of the main clubs in Île-de-France.
The climb: Massy finds the Pro D 2
RUGBY. It was the question of the weekend. Beaten (21-9) in Albi during the semi-final first leg of the National, Massy’s players would be able to overtake the Pro D2. The answer is yes! At halftime, the Essonniens had made up a large part of their deficit (14-3). They only needed one point to take the lead. It’s done once the 3rd out of 6 attempts recovery is registered.
With a victory in the form of a triumph (40-10), the inhabitants of Ile-de-France find the Pro D 2 they left behind in 2019, this time with the idea of staying there. The season is not over yet with a final against Soyaux Angoulême taking place next Saturday in Blagnac.
The map: PSG Judo achieves the double
JUDO. PSG left only the crumbs for their rivals. Whether for boys or girls, PSG won the two titles at the French Division 1 Championship held this Saturday at Villebon-sur-Yvette in Essonne.
The harvest started with the girls who, thanks to Marie-Ève Gahié, won the final against the defending champion, Le Blanc-Mesnil. On the third step, Sainte-Geneviève and Maisons-Alfort for a 100% Ile-de-France podium. Chelles (5th) and the two 7ths, FLAM 91 and Champigny-sur-Marne complete the foray into Ile-de-France.
Same observation for the boys, PSG with Teddy Riner did not miss the title against FLAM 91 in the final. There too, the supremacy of Ile-de-France was not denied with third places in Sainte-Geneviève and AJA Paris XX, 5th place in Montreuil and 7th place in Chilly-Mazarin.
The Flop: The Metropolitans Stand Still in the Quarters
BASKETBALL. Still, in their quarter-final against Elan Béarnais Pau-Lacq-Orthez, favorites see the Metropolitans of Boulogne-Levallois see their dream of the title of champions of France fly away. Despite their third place in the regular season, which meant they had to face sixth (Elan Béarnais) and thus had the advantage of playing a potentially nice game at home, Vincent Collet’s players were stuck.
Already defeated in match 1 at home on Wednesday (77-94), the Hauts-de-Seine players failed to reverse the trend this Saturday in Béarn. Defeated again (81-71), they see the door to the semi-finals closing for good.
Clear: PSG got 27 out of 27
HANDBALL. Little by little, PSG are getting closer to their goal: to finish the championship with the full card, 30 wins in as many games. This is the only goal in the Coupe de France final against Nantes on June 11 since their elimination against Kiel in the quarter-finals of the Champions League 10 days ago. This Friday against the humble Saran, Raul Gonzalez’s players won without shaking (40-33). At trot.
Qualification: Pontault loses but advances to the semi-finals
HANDBALL. After their big win in Dijon (35-27) this Wednesday in the first leg, the Pontault-Combault players had the qualification for the semi-finals wide open. All they had to do was validate their ticket during Saturday’s return leg against the Burgundians. The latter played it all out and managed to win (28-31). A defeat that of course does not affect their qualification for the semi-finals that take place in Dijon on Saturday.
The first poster features Ivry, winner of the regular season and already guaranteed to return to the Starligue, at 3:15 PM against Sélestat. And Jean-Pierre Dupoux’s teammates (4th in regular season) will face Cherbourg (3rd in regular season) at 6pm.
If Ivry goes to the final, the winner of the Pontault-Cherbourg match will automatically receive a ticket for the Starligue. If Ivry falls in the semi-finals, it will be necessary to win against Sélestat the following day at 3:15 pm in the final that is scheduled to see higher.
The title: Stade Français champion of France in National 2
BASKETBALL. The girls from Stade Français provided the icing on the cake. The players of Christophe Denis, former coach of Paris-Levallois at the time of the Pro A, were already convinced that they would go to National 1, beating Anglet (57-55) this Sunday in the final in Vineuil (Loir- et-Cher) and win the title of French National Champion 2. Orly, another team from Ile-de-France, is in third place.
