Handball-Super 8s and Anse Boileau undefeated


24-July-2004

But first, local players have to prove their mettle in local tournaments and more importantly the League championship.

Half-way through the men's and women's leagues, Super 8s and Ane Boileau lead the standings with unbeaten records and they hope to stay undefeated until the end of the two-round championships.

In the men's league, Supers 8s, losing finalists of last year's Cup competition, boast a maximum 15 points.

Boasting one of the best players here in Mauritius-born José Nenesse, coach/player Danny Philoé has been able to get his team to remain consistent in their five games to stay perfect.

Being the only team to have conceded less than 100 goals – 90 – Super 8s, who have scored 142 goals, lead Plaisance, League and Cup double champions last season, by two points.

Coached by Michel Kilindo, defending champions Plaisance, with players like the Esther brothers – Curtis and Robert – captain Bradley Stravens and Hans Radegonde, are in second position after four wins and a defeat.

Anse Boileau, Duranta Brothers, Silver Star and Anse Aux Pins occupy third, fourth, fifth and sixth places.

Of the six teams, only Anse Aux Pins have been unable to grind a win, while Anse Boileau have scored the most goals – 177.

In the women's League, captain Coreena Haidee and Anse Boileau, who also completed a double last year by winning the League and Cup titles, look like defending their League crown as they pace the rest of the field.

With 12 points from four matches, Anse Boileau, coached by Cyril Freminot and with players like Sherine Félicie and the Belmont twin sisters – Nathalie and Natasha – do not boast the best record in terms of goals scored (70) and conceded (54), but they have been able to overcome all their opponents.

The best record of 85 goals scored and 51 conceded is being held by Anse Royale who are second in the five-team standings on 10 points.

Under the leadership of Emmanuel Larue, Thelma Sauzier, Rica Bibi, Prisca Esparon and company are looking forward to beat Anse Boileau in the second round to harbour the hope of giving last year's Cup losing finalists Anse Royale the championship title.

Following Anse Boileau and Anse Royale on the table are Plaisance (8 points and two wins), Northern Girls (six points and one win) and winless Port Glaud (four points).
It is to note that teams get three points for a win, two for a draw, one for a defeat and none if they do not turn up
