Thomas (behind) and Mike led Trojans to 2nd Runner-Up.

Thomas Lun scored 16 points, Mike Mak added nine and Jerry Lee had nine bench points as Trojans beat H.F.C. 39-23 in the 3rd Place Game and become the 2nd Runner-Up of SBL 2009.

Tabo Chak did not play in the final game of this season as he injured his ring finger two games ago, despite he still played in the overtime loss in Semi-Final. Nikko Kwok returned from his one-game absence but had only 5 points and boards apiece. He was 2-on-10 from the field and missed all his four free throws.

Nikko made a three-point shot in the first period and put H.F.C. to a 5-4 lead. After a Trojans timeout, Mike Mak finished two free throws to re-gain the lead and this is for good.

Thomas made two foul shots in the middle of second period for a 18-7 lead before both teams turned the game to a turnover show. Andy So finally ended it by a three-pointer and Colin Wong’s layup helped H.F.C. to pull within six points entering the half.

Marco Tse open the second half with a long basket that cut the game to 18-15 and hit another basket as H.F.C. was still down by 22-17. Another period of scoring drought begin since then.

Jerry, who scored the final basket in the third period, hit a trey to begin the final period and added two free throws which capped a personal 8-0 run. Thomas hit another three which put Trojans to 32-18, a distance that the sluggish H.F.C. did not look like could overcome.

Patrick Ip scored two of his already team-high six points and cut the lead to single digit, but that’s the final basket the team would made.

H.F.C. had two blocked shots from two guards, Trojans has none.

H.F.C. lost all games when they failed to score 30 points. They had only two games of that kind in five seasons, both played this year.
