HOLDERS Frankwell kicked off their Super Commercial Cup title defence on a winning note at the Southorn Stadium last night but Energy sounded a warning they are the team to beat with an impressive 116-73 demolition of Fukien. Frankwell, represented by the Moscow Select last year but with SWH-Broceni of Latvia flying their colours this time, carved out a 106-92 victory over China's Winnerway. Coach Armands Kraulins was far from happy with their performance and said: ''Our season had finished almost a month ago and the players have been resting since, so they are not in form. ''This is a good warm-up game for us and we should play better in our next match. I am confident we can help Frankwell to the title.'' Frankwell pulled away to a 23-12 lead after nine minutes and never looked back, holding a 44-34 advantage at half-time and going on to win by 14 points. Rauno Pehka scored 25 points for Frankwell while Russian international Elchad Gadachev hit 20, but the top-scorer of the match was Winnerway's ex-Chinese international Zhang Yongjun with 27 points, including five three-pointers. Energy, comprising the cream of foreign players who took part in the Hong Kong league which ended on Tuesday, put up a stunning performance to crush a hapless Fukien side in the last match of the triple-header. Energy sprang to a 15-0 lead in three minutes before Eldridge Hudson opened Fukien's account with a three-pointer. Energy never relaxed, going on to hold a 63-33 advantage at the interval. Mark Meredith again proved to be a big hit with the Hong Kong fans with his immaculate accuracy from the outside, netting five three-pointers on his way to 21 points for Energy. Another to shine was Carroll Boudeaux, who hurt his left knee early in the second period but nevertheless top-scored for Energy with 28. Wing Lun also kicked off their campaign on a winning note by capitalising on their height advantage to crush South Korea's Samsung 93-74. Seven-foot centre Scott Peterson put Wing Lun on the winning path with eight points in the first three minutes to open up a 10-3 lead and they never looked back. Samsung found it impossible to penetrate the Wing Lun defence and had to rely on their accurate long-range shots.
