Canadian Alexis Bertrand’s Club Ascends to French First Division

Led by Canadian Alexis Bertrand’s 6 goals, OC Cesson Handball defeated St Cyr Touraine 32-30 on Saturday. This victory by league leading Cesson at 3rd place St Cyr guarantees that Cesson will finish either first or second in Division 2. With that placement Cesson, which has flirted with promotion for the past few years will now play in France’s first division, the Ligue National de Handball (LNH) where they will take on the likes of Montpellier and Chambery.
