Sacred Heart Canossian College stunned Ying Wa Girls' School to clinch the Hong Kong Division One (Grade A) inter-school basketball championship last weekend. With nine minutes remaining on the clock, Ying Wa were leading by nine points and looked home and dry. But two successful three-point attempts inspired Sacred Heart to make a memorable comeback and finally win the game 37-30 at Smithfield Sports Centre in Kennedy Town. 'It was a harsh game and we are thankful to the Ying Wa Girls' team, because they put on a great performance. But, once again, we were the lucky team,' said Sacred Heart coach Joey Suen. Last week, Sacred Heart scored a shock 29-24 victory over defending champions, Hong Kong International School (HKIS), in the semi-finals. HKIS saw their two key players foul out early in the second half, which swung the game in Sacred Heart's favour. 'We scored two lucky three points and it really stimulated our hearts,' said Suen. 'Our key players were Carmen Ho Wan-yi, who led a 5-0 run in the fourth quarter, Sandy Wai Pui-ting, and centre Cary Cheung Ka-lee, who won crucial rebounds.' Sacred Heart will now take on the best from Kowloon and the New Territories in the All-Hong Kong (Jing Ying) tournament next month. 'We are excited that we will face elite teams. We can learn a lot by competing with them. But we are only beginners in the Jing Ying, and our aim is only to enjoy the matches,' Suen said. Meanwhile, in the Hong Kong Island Division One (Grade A) boys' football competition, West Island School stormed into the final with a surprisingly comfortable 5-1 victory over King George V School. Aberdeen Technical School shocked St Joseph's College 1-0 in the other semi-final.
