Dans un Palais des Sports de Besançon archi-comble et survolté, ce vendredi soir, les jeunes handballeuses bisontines ont battu Cannes (28-25). L'ESBF décroche ainsi le titre de championne de France de D2, avant même les trois dernières journées, et valide par la même occasion sa remontée en D1, un an seulement après l'avoir quittée !

« Exceptionnel, sensationnel, énorme, magique » , ou encore « l’impression de rajeunir d’une dizaine d’années »  : voilà tous les jolis mots et autres superlatifs déclamés tout sourire par les joueuses, entraîneurs et dirigeants de l’ESBF, ce vendredi soir au Palais des Sports de Besançon, dans la foulée de ce sacre de championne de France de D2, synonyme de retour-express dans l’élite du handball féminin français la saison prochaine.

Car c’est bien dans un Palais des Sports plein comme un œuf, avec plus de 3000 spectateurs ‘’chauds-bouillants’’ – un fantastique engouement populaire disparu depuis la grande époque du club bisontin , il y a plus d’une décennie maintenant – que s’est joué ce match du titre ET de la remontée en D1 !

Il ne manquait plus qu’une seule victoire à décrocher lors des quatre dernières journées de D2 pour permettre aux leaders bisontines de, mathématiquement, valider l’unique sésame pour l’élite. Et les jeunes joueuses de Camille Comte et Raphaëlle Tervel n’ont pas laissé passé la belle occasion, à domicile , ce vendredi. L’ESBF s’est, certes, imposée sur le fil, 28-25, contre Cannes . Mais peu importe : ce onzième succès consécutif en championnat est bel et bien le plus beau, le plus important du début de carrière de la bande de copines bisontines, dont les trois-quarts sont issues du centre de formation du club , ou en sont même encore pensionnaires, pour certaines.

Avec ce tout premier titre de championne de France de D2, dans son histoire : l’ESBF renoue donc un peu avec son glorieux passé . Le dernier trophée remontait jusque-là à 2005  : la Coupe de France, également remportée trois saisons de suite, de 2001 à… 2003, la fameuse année du quadruplé historique pour le club bisontin (championnat de D1, Coupe de la Ligue, Coupe de France, donc et surtout : Coupe d’Europe des Vainqueurs de Coupes). Car, si les nombreux nostalgiques ne l’avaient oublié, pour ceux qui ne le savaient peut-être pas : l’ESBF possède un des plus prestigieux palmarès du handball féminin hexagonal  ! Les Bisontines ont été sacrées quatre fois championnes de France de D1 (1988, 1998, 2001, 2003), sans oublier sept places de vices championnes , entre 1996 et 2005. Et puis, dans la vitrine à trophées : il y a aussi deux Coupes de la Ligue (2003 et 2004). L’ESBF ne sera donc pas un promu comme les autres, la saison prochaine, en D1…
