To enter the competition, the French women’s team was impressive and finished its first day with two victories.
Against Brazil, the French kept their calm despite their aggressive defense of their opponent, who committed 12 mistakes during the match, including seven, after three minutes of play, and the final result is final, 22-11, after a convincing match both defensively and offensively. . Laëtitia Guapo finished the match as the top scorer with seven points. The Les Bleues were able to overcome errors to reach the throw line 11 times and make their task easier in this meeting.
After a strong first match, the French team faced New Zealand, which came out of an encouraging defeat against the United States (19-14). After a slow start to the match offensively by the French with a few balls lost, Marie-Yves Baggett’s outside title allowed the Blues to build up enough gap to be safe. The French defense would have undermined the New Zealanders. Note, on the subject, the hard work of Myriam Decondad who kept her best opponent, Kalani Purcell, at only 1/8 of her shots. Bleues’ opponents remained silent behind the arc by 0/8, as Marie-Yves Baggett’s teammates (six points) (4/8) succeeded.
