This Saturday, May 7, there was a party in the Justy-Specker room. The Pays de Fougères basketball team indeed received Vanves on the last day at home of their National 2 championship.

But it was also the night the Blues brothers reunited with their audience, two weeks after winning the Trophy Coupe de France.

Choplin always

Fougères settled into their match perfectly with a 7-0 lead. Stung, the Northerners wasted no time getting back into the game (9-4, 6th). Vanves then inflicted 13-0 on Fougères and got ahead of the score (15-19, 10th).

Claveau seemed to get all of his 3-point success back (19-23, 13). He even allowed himself to bind them (27-25, 16).

Choplin took on his duties with full confidence after being elected MVP of the final in Bercy (37-32).

Fougères did not control this game, but returned to the locker room in front of the mark (37-32). Choplin, the author of 15 points in this first half, was not in vain.
