[CCU BASKETBALL] Too Close

The Silver team's season is coming to an end with Tuesday, July 25th's Consolation game. I have to say that moving up from the Bronze to the Silver division was tough, but for almost every game, I think the guys had a chance to win.

They definitely had a chance to beat Chinese Church of the Nazarene, the team they beat last week. But unfortunately, the birthday magic was gone. The game was close pretty much the whole time. SFEFC trailed at the half 17 to 22, but with 10 minutes left they tied the game. Then again with 5 minutes left, the game was tied. Frustratingly, most of the shots our team took in the last few minutes refused to drop and they ended up losing 31 to 34.

However, Sadik Twal had a great game and was the high scorer with 10 points! He had 3 rebounds that he put back for baskets as well as 2 additional baskets. He grabbed a total of 9 rebounds and 2 steals. Nice!

Everyone else had a bit of a quiet game. Jonathan Ching had 4 points, both coming from steals that he took to the hoop. He also had 2 rebounds. Tony Wong hit only 1 basket and 1 free throw, along with 3 rebounds and 1 assist. Jason Ching only hit 3 points as well - 3 free throws. (Nice job hitting your free throws!) He also had 1 rebound and 1 steal. Brian Regis hit one 3 point shot and grabbed a rebound.

The opposing team was able to shut Kevin Bowman down, he only scored 2 points but was able to grab 5 rebounds, 2 steals, and 3 assists. Calvin Ho hit a basket and 2 rebounds before fouling out. Matt Kwong hit a basket and 1 rebound and Emmu Zhao scored 2 points. Defensively, Kevin Chow had 2 rebounds and 1 steal.

The next game is Tuesday July 25th at 7:30 pm at Mercy High and hoping that the guys can end the season with a win! Come and cheer them on!
