The additional time is coming to an end. The match of the 7th round of the Coupe de France between Pont-Sainte-Maxence (R 2) and Senlis (R 1) seems promised to extra time. It is not counting on yet another free kick for the Senlisiens, twenty-five meters from the goal full axis. The direct hit of Damien Gonzalez (90 + 2), entered a few minutes earlier, then plunges the stadium into silence. "The stoppage of play does not scare me, laughs the scorer, already the author of the penalty of the victory in the additional time in the previous round. I was a substitute but it's up to me to shoot the set pieces, so I took my responsibilities. As soon as I grabbed the ball, I felt I was going to put it in the bottom. "
For him and his team, the party continued in the locker room, in the presence of the mayor, who was also acclaimed between two victorious songs. Yet the game was not easy for Senlis, stumbled on a brave team with his goalkeeper Angel Rodriguez very fit. It was first the Pontois who managed to open the scoring first thanks to Ganga on their first corner (21st) before the equalization of Kaba before the break (40th). "It's a deserved victory," said Senlis coach Sebastien Defaix. But we complicated the task by missing our first half-hour. I'm happy with the reaction of my players, even if except during our entry in the contest, we always conceded at least one goal during this course … "In contrast, for Clement Deneu and his players, the party and the epic in the Coupe de France are over for this season. "The elimination is more than logical, regrets the coach pontois. But it's more than cruel in the scenario and the performance of my players. We are being called to order on two sets of kicks … "
