No, the season is not over for all teams! This Sunday, May 29, 2022, a high-stakes match awaited at the Jules Rimet Stadium for the spectators who came in droves. In Group A of Regional 2, Verson absolutely had to win at home to keep believing in R1, while Ouistreham had to take one or more points to get out of the dangerous red zone. It was Nicolas Vrel’s men, favorites, who achieved their goal! By winning on their synthetic (2-1), the Versonnais entitle themselves to believe in the faux pas of the leader of Équeurdrevillais until the very end.

Ouistreham opens the score

Dominating very quickly, Verson could have quickly opened the scoring. From the fourth minute on, de Versonnais found the bar, coming first in the afternoon to save Arthur Berville and his teammates. After all, it was the visitors who opened the scoring at their first chance thanks to a volley from Loris Zuiani who completed a pattern of counterattack in the 15 minutes.

Verson wakes up for the rest

Not disturbed by this opener, the locals continued to create many situations. After finding the opposing team’s crossbar a second and then a third time in two minutes, it was finally Samuel Nambot who set the record straight with a brilliant goal into the top corner near the area. Which reassured his teammates just before going to the locker room.

A last half hour of madness

On his return from the dressing room, Ouistreham could have burst quickly, but survived thanks to his goalkeeper’s good saves. The Maritimes even regained hope when Clément Nogues, Verson’s goalkeeper who played his last game under his flag today, was suspended for an outing that the opposing attacker deemed unchecked. So it was a fielder, Pierre Levergeois, who replaced his goalkeeper. The usual side also offered a very nice parade on his first free kick to leave his partners in the match.

Shortly after this game, Florian Bouaziz, after a very good cross by Antonin Cathrine, sent an unstoppable header into the side net, allowing his team to pass in front, albeit outnumbered by numbers. Despite a second red, a last minute header from the opposing goalkeeper, President Lopez’s men managed to hold on to their three points, essential for the final day of the championship.

See you next weekend for the epilogue

Thanks to these three points, Verson is putting pressure on Equeurdreville, who has no right to beat at Ouistreham next weekend. It will be a complicated game for the frontrunners, as the Maritimes will be forced to take points to maintain their position. Verson will obviously need to win at Pointe Hague to take advantage of a potential misstep by their competitor on the climb.

Reactions from coaches

Dylan Orange (coach AJS Ouistreham): “We expected a complicated game, our game plan was simple, we left the ball to them and we countered. It worked well in the first half because we scored on our first chance. I’m disappointed because they come back just before half time and in the second half. in the second half it was much more complicated. We take an avoidable goal, I think, because we are not present at the reception of the center. I also regret the red card action of the opposing goalkeeper, where I would rather have scored. But we didn’t put in enough danger today to hope for better. It remains up to us to make a try against Equeurdreville next week and hope our competitors don’t win.”

Nicolas Vrel (AS Verson coach): “It was not an easy game, where you quickly hit the bar twice. I found the match choppy with lots of whistles, which prevented us from increasing the intensity. By being very mediocre, we still manage to equalize before half time, which is quite logical. In the second half we were a bit outsmarted by the game, but we managed to score and keep this advantage, that’s the most important thing. I’m proud of the guys, we’ll have to finish the job well next week at Pointe Hague, hoping Ouistreham beats Equeurdreville. †
