Hi Sports Fans! It is that time of year again and I'm happy to report that the first game of the CCU Season was won by our youth Frosh/Soph team!
The first half was a close match. Maybe all the players had first game jitters but lots of baskets that were shot did not fall. In fact, most of the first half our team was losing. But Aniyan Santiago drove the ball in to close the gap at the end of the 2nd half and the score was 9 to 10 at half-time.
Thankfully, the second half, the buckets started to fall and SFEFC pulled ahead and never looked back, winning 33 to 24. Congrats team on your first win!
Everyone played a terrific game, but definitely, a highlight was Jalen Belton with 17 points (hitting THREE 3-point shots in the 2nd half) as well as grabbing 15 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 assist. Nick Wong had a great game with 5 points and 1 rebound. Newcomer Aniyan Santiago put up 4 points, grabbed 3 rebounds and had 1 assist. Also new this year is Jerry Huang who scored a basket and Wynn Guo who grabbed a rebound.
Returning defensive star Ryan Lau had a blocked shot, 3 rebounds and 5 steals as well as hitting 1 free throw. Nathan Pen also had a great defensive game grabbing 6 rebounds, 4 steals, 1 assist and hitting 1 free throw. Calvin Ng had 2 rebounds and 1 free throw and Ethan Hom hit 2 free throws.
Great game and we are looking forward to the rest of the season! The next game is Monday June 18th at 8:30p at Holy Trinity 999 Brotherhood Way. See you there!
