Ice hockey: Cergy-Pontoise already in difficulty in its semi-final against Grenoble

First round, Grenoble. On March 21, the Brûleurs de Loup de Grenoble largely dominated the Jokers de Cergy-Pontoise in the first match of the Magnus League semi-final. The 9 goals to 2 victory of the mountaineers forced the suburbanites to react from the second set.

The Grenoble supporters, who came in large numbers, did not wait long to see their team prove decisive. From the tenth minute, striker Sacha Treille opened the scoring with a shot in the top corner. The rest is a long ordeal for the Val-d’Oisians. In the second period, the Burners widen the gap. The goals will then parade until planting nine in total to the players of Cergy-Pontoise with in particular a double from Markus Poukkula. On the side of Cergy, Anthony Rinaldi and Jake Horton (in superiority) saved the honor. It doesn’t matter how big the score is: losing 1-0 or 9-2 in the series at the same value.

But the Jokers will have to show something else this Wednesday evening, still in Grenoble from 8:45 p.m. The second round is played 24 hours after the first. Cergy no longer has the right to defeat before returning home for the third round scheduled for Saturday. The rest will take place on Sunday in Cergy and if necessary, the series continues on March 29, 31 and April 2. The team that wins 4 matches will go to the semi-finals. Things are off to a bad start for Cergy but nothing is lost either.

Last season, the Grenoble residents eliminated the Cergyssois (4-1) at the same stage of the competition before being crowned champions. In the other semi-final, Rouen beat Angers 4-1.
