After a 21-point effort few weeks ago, Michael Chan led D.S.F. by a double-double — 11 points and 10 rebounds — and handed SOUTHORN Tigers a second straight loss by 30-27.

SOUTHORN Tigers hope giving up a run in the first period is not going to be a trend.

Started the game allowing a run in the second straight game, the Tigers watched D.S.F. took early advantage by an 8-0 run, before Benny Wong and Edward Fong made a trey each to cut it at 6-8 right before the period end.

After giving up rebounds and second chance points in the first period, Tigers re-group for defense but they continued their cold shooting and let Frankie Wing Fai Lee to scored all his 5 points as D.S.F. entered the break with a 15-10 lead.

After Terence Chan scored all his three points of the night, D.S.F. make another run to build a ten-point lead at 23-13 before the Tigers needed a timeout.

After an improbable three-pointer earlier in the night, Ray Chan put back luckily his own miss, followed by Ben Tsang who made two foul shots and Benny Wong made a layup after Wilson Chow missed a throw free right at the buzzer to close the third period back to 19-25.

Terence Chan dished twice to Dennis Chang, who missed all shots in the first three periods and looked out of sync. The four points put the team to 24-27 before Chang could not complete the three-point play, missed at the charity stripe.

Paris Chan scored two more points and Michael Chan added one more free throw as D.S.F. hang on for a second victory, remains unbeaten and tied with Photons and T-REX in the division ranking.

The Tigers are cold not only from the field buy also at the line, having 18 free throw attempts but made only 8. Ben Tsang, who played only one game in 2006 before job commitment, returned to the team and scored 5 points, all at the line.

Mike Wan fell on the floor at the end of the game and was helped off the court by teammates.
