OSTU-USS – FJEP Bonson 32-11 (18-2)
The French at least gave the impression that they would struggle to avoid a walk over. Good defense from the male players could not prevent however that more athletic power on the Russian female side resulted into a 6-2 lead after 10 minutes.
When Kazachkov, one of the best scorers during the recent World Games in Colombia, regained confidence with very accurate shots, French enthusiasm faded away (18-2)
Same spectacle after tea, the French unable to find solutions to disturb Russian attacks and not capable to score out of too few chances!
The results of this first day may result in new ways to organise the tournament.
