Ligue Féminine de Basketball
Road wins for Montpellier and Tarbes


For the Ligue Féminine de Basketball the third round of action opened with a live broadcast by LFB TV of the game between Saint Amand Hainaut Basket and Tarbes. This was the first regular season game outside the Open LFB since 2009 to be broadcast live by the LFB.

Saint Amand Union Hainaut Basket are still looking for their first victory of the season after falling at home (61-67) to Tarbes.

The game was shown on LFB-TV with Arnaud Dunikowski and Ivano Ballarini providing the colour commentary.

Unfortunately for the hosts two big other sporting events were going on at the same time. So the sports hall was rather empty.

The match itself was not a classic and only came to life in the final five minutes.

With Clémence Beikes making her first start of the season for Hainaut Basket, her team had the better of the play for the opening minutes and edged the first quarter (21-19).

The second quarter belonged to Paoline Salagnac and Tarbes as they went into the locker room leading (39-35).

Petra Stampalija (left) playing for Saint Amand finally ended the barren spell from the free-throw line. The hosts then took charge of the game and went in front through Marina Solopova (42-41) with 27 minutes played to stay in front till the end of the third quarter (47-45).

The final quarter was a see-saw battle with both teams having their moments in front during the first six minutes. Tarbes' deeper bench prevailed in the end as they went in front for good with a pair from the charity stripes by Florence Lepron (60-58).

Paoline Salagnac added a couple more points before Solopova hit the self destruct button by picking up a technical foul.

The hosts were unable to get back into the game despite the departure of Salagnac with 5 fouls and suffered their third defeat in the Ligue Féminine de Basketball.
