This weekend, 81 games in 3e tour reserved its share of surprises, thus allowing no less than 21 District teams to qualify, sometimes on difficult terrain still due to weather conditions (see all the results on our site – under any methods). All the qualifications will be accompanied by 3 N2 formations on Wednesday during the public draw at the headquarters of Crédit Agricole in Nantes (route de Paris), from 7 pm
On Saturday, two of the four posters ended in surprises between the League teams: Marsouins de Brétignolles (R3) eliminated the former resident of R1 Intersport, FC Rezé, while on the contrary, the former regional promoted elite won the poster for this 3e returns to penalties against Vendée Poiré in Vie Football (N3) at the end of the suspense (1-1; 6-5 pens). Other N3 formations fell as soon as they entered the fight: FC Côteaux du Vignoble (D1) achieved a new success on Sunday by eliminating Saint-Nazaire AF (2-1). The same scenario in the Sarthe where the US Bazouges-Cré (Club photo above) did it again, and how, against SC Beaucouzé. Difficult for the sponsored by N3 decisively, with the elimination of ESOF La Roche sur Yon in the land of FC Saint-Julien Divatte (1-1; 3-2 pens). Another very nice surprise, achieved in US Toutlemonde-Maulévrier (D1) against another promoted, in R1 Intersport this season, ESA Brissac.
Accustomed to taking advantage of the Cup, ES Montilliers (R3) defeated both divisions against RC Fléchois. Similarly, Montsûrs (D1) were shocked by CS Changed 72 at home. Ditto for ASO Montenay (Club photo above) winner of La Chapelle Saint-Aubin. To a lesser degree, ES Blain (R2) eliminated FC Saint-Sébastien, as promoted Montreuil-Juigné-Béné dominated ES Bonchamp. A division was also eliminated for one of the 21 residents of the District, FC Mouchamps-Rochetrejoux, who qualified on the lawn of Saint-Hilaire Vihiers (R3), like Chantrigné against La Bazoges. Three of the six D2 thumbs achieved the feat: US Bazoges-Beaurepaire (club photo below) did it again against a League team, Sainte-Luce this time (R3), while the Rives de l’Yon club surprised Les Achards (R3). The same goes for Angers SCA (club photo below) dominated the Andouille. Vernoil-Vernantes, AS Sud Loire and Nantes Don Bosco qualified, among them, in a more logical way.
We will all meet on Wednesday evening (7 pm) for the public draw (broadcast from 7:15 pm on our Facebook page) at the Crédit Agricole Atlantique-Vendée headquarters in Nantes (route de Paris).
