Rouen Drops First Game in French Division 1

Paris UC defeated RouenParis UC defeated Rouen giving the Huskies their first loss of the year in the French Division 1 League. Rouen had gone 21-0 before the 4-2 loss in Game 2 of the weekend series last Sunday. Paris currently sits in 5th place in the league with a record of 8-14.

While it might not be shocking that Rouen finally dropped a game, it might be a bit of a shock that it came from Paris. Rouen is not perfect on the year having lost in the European Champions Cup and the Challenge de France earlier in the year. They are however the odds on favorite to repeat once again for the title in France.

In other league action Senart stayed in second place with a weekend sweep against Saint-Just-Saint-Rambert Ducks. Montpellier also was perfect over the weekend solidifying its spot in 3rd with a pair of wins over Montigny. Senart and Montpellier will face off with one another this coming Sunday.

Rouen looks to rebound in a big way coming off its lone loss of the season. They will face off with the 7th place Clermont.
