Our guys had their third game this past Saturday. Everything was looking good even though four players were not able to make it to the game. SFEFC started out strong. Yulin Deng dominated the boards in the first half grabbing 7 rebounds and scoring 6 points. Jason Liao also had a strong first half with 6 points. Kevin Chow had 5 of his 8 rebounds in the first half along with a blocked shot and a basket. At halftime, the guys had a comfortable 17 to 11 lead.
However, something within Hope EFC woke up and they completely took over the 2nd half, scoring at whopping 39 points in the 2nd half and hitting 6 three point shots. Our guys fought the good fight but were defeated 50 to 41.
A few of the highlights of the game: SFEFC had their own version of the splash brothers this game with Jason Liao and Jason Chen combining for 7 three point shots! KC had a great defensive game with 8 rebounds, 1 steal and a blocked shot.
Jason Liao continued to be the high scorer with 17 points (4 three point baskets, 1 free throw), 2 steals and 2 rebounds; Jason Chen had 9 points (3 three pointers) along with 1 rebound and 1 steal. Yulin Deng had another solid game with 8 points (2 free throws), 7 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 assist. Kevin Chow had 4 points, 8 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 blocked shot. Tao Huang had 2 points and 2 rebounds. Calvin Ho who always plays a tough defensive game, came up with 1 free throw, 5 rebounds and 1 steal. Brian Regis had 2 steals and 1 rebound, David Dong had 3 rebounds. It was good to see Jimmy Zhou get some playing time.
Thanks to all those who came and cheered our team on! I'm proud that they never gave up and looking forward to the rest of the season. Our next game is Tuesday June 21st at 6:30p at South SF High School.
