I love In-And-Out hamburgers, but in and out shots are frustrating. Unfortunately in our gold team's first game there were a lot of good shots that just wouldn't fall.
This was coach Tony Wong's first game. Tony is in a long line of hallowed basketball players who step up into the coaching role. Thanks Tony for being willing to do this for the team!
The guys started off well with the lead, but that evaporated quickly when Hope Lutheran put on the man to man defense. As stated previously, the shots weren't falling for us, but did for our opponents and SFEFC was defeated 49 to 36.
Definitely a bright spot for the team was Jonathan Ching who hit FOUR 3-point shots plus an AND 1 for a total of 15 points. Sadik Twal also had a great game hitting 3 baskets plus 2 free throws for a total of 8 points, 5 rebounds, 1 blocked shot and 1 steal. Kevin Bowman also put in a strong showing with a 3-point shot and and a basket for 5 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 assist.
Rounding out the scoring, Kevin Chow hit one basket but also grabbed 9 rebounds and 1 steal. Wenkai Wen had one basket and 1 rebound. Matt Kwong had one basket and 1 assist. Defensively Brian Regis grabbed 3 rebounds and Derrick Tat had 1 rebound.
Looking forward to our next game this Friday at 8:30p at Martin Luther King Middle School. See you there!
