Paris left no room for doubt in this Round 3 game.
After drawing against Chambéry (30-30) in the last round, the Cesson team was hoping to get a good grip on Paris Saint-Germain Handball. But in this match dominated by PSG, the outcome quickly became obvious.
Only three minutes into the game, Cesson was two goals ahead (3-1) following a goal by Batinovic. But Cesson would not regain that lead, as the Parisian machine built up a good head of steam and powered through the rest of the game.
This momentum was evident in the four unanswered goals scored by Paris, taking them to 15-9 ten minutes before the end of the first half. This run also helped Mladen Bojinovic write more LNH and D1 history, as he broke the record for the number of goals scored from penalty throws; Anouard Ayed’s 400 goal record was smashed by a larger-than-life Dugy and his 7/8 penalty goals.Mladen Bojinovic was the king of the penalty throw and broke the record with his new total of 406 goals scored. The Serbian will have the chance to increase that number as the season progresses.
At half time, Cesson lagged 7 goals behind PSG Handball (22-15).
PSG put all their efforts into increasing that lead. Mikkel Hansen, already in fine form in the first half, continued to undermine Cesson and ended the game with 10 goals. Patrice Annonay made save after save in goal, notching up 13 by the end of the match.
