Drancy could not develop his game, being oppressed by Villejuif who recolled to a unité on a defensive error (4-3 / 37’10). The tension went up, the faults became harder, which gave two Direct Coups in favor of the Drancéens, who did not concretize them. And it was the Villejuifoise team that came back and put the doubt in the drancéennes heads (4-4 / 40’28).
