PAR Steve Pierre|31 Mars, 2017|CLUB
March started the first half of the final eight matches here in the 2016/17 Championnat National. The month saw a very rough start but eventually as each match came up improvement was the key for Paris FC. Here is how the four matches went down.
March began with a trip to Dunkerque to face US Dunkerque. This was a match full of heartbreak due to dropping out of the promotion zone and tons of sloppy play. Le PFC had to fight to get it level in the 52nd minute as Anthony Ribelin tied it up. Sadly in the 78th a penalty was called and Dunkerque won.
Following the loss in Dunkerque we had a two game home stand, the first was against Châteauroux. The final score would be a 1-1 draw that was enough to get back into the promotion zone. Captain Hervé Lybohy scored our only goal in the match.
The final home game of the moth was against Belfort that began a two game winning streak. Demba Camara and Lalaïna Nomenjanahary capitalized on several Befort errors to get the win. This was the first victory in a month.
Finally we traveled to Boulogne for a date with USBCO. Riding high from the previous victory over Belfort Paris FC would come out flying. Rodrigue Bongongui started the goal fest with a brace in the eleventh minute. Followed by two goals form Sidiki Maiga in the thirteenth and thirty-fifth minutes. Hervé Lybohy added his second goal of the month in the sixty-sixth. USBCO's only answer came in the seventy-third. We won big by a final score of 4-1.
With a loss, a draw and two victories Paris FC still are holding it down in first place. They have accounted for 52 points in 30 matches thus far.
"The victory against Belfort came at the right time and the guys are very ecstatic. We just need to keep it up for the remander of the season and then we will return to Ligue 2 hopefully. "
-Kévin Gauthier after the 2-0 victory against Belfort.
PLAYER OF THE MONTH:
Captain Hervé Lybohy had his best month this season. In the four games he was credited with two goals and had a match rating of 7.7. He is also credited with the better final half of March. Apparently he had some words to his teammates that got everyone motivated for the Belfort game.
WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN APRIL:
Four matches remain this season with two of them in April. On 7 April we will be hosting Chambly. Previously we drew them back in November. There is a little break between that match and the one against CA Bastia on the 21st. Just like Chambly the previous meeting between CA Bastia and Paris FC resulted in a draw.
