Police beat Hong Kong Garrison Navy Team
62 - 58, this time

THE Police Basketball Team recently played against the Hong Kong Garrison Navy Team at Stonecutters Island HKG Naval Base.

Led by SSP OPS PHQ, Fung Kwok-on; SP OPS PHQ, Lo Mung-hung; and team captain Kong Yiu-man, the Police defeated the Garrison in a close 62-58 match that was friendly yet competitive.

While the HKG team were masters at shooting long shots, the Police performed better in mid-court, frequently foiling their rivals' abilities.

The match was filmed by the Central People's Television Station.

All players enjoyed the friendly encounter and look forward to more matches in the future - especially the Garrison Navy Team who intend to win next time.

Fung Kwok-on, the Police/HKG Liaison Officer, said more sporting events will be organised to further enhance the already close relationship with the military.

We love this game.

Crime Prevention Bureau takes 97/98 Wallis Trophy

The CPB team, left to right: Simon Chan, Henry Chiang, Simon Roberts (SP CPB), George Leung and Edward Ma
THIS year the Crime Prevention Bureau (CPB) lawn bowl team won the championship Wallis Trophy for the second year in a row. New bowler, Senior Inspector Henry Chiang replaced last year's third man position and played extremely well helping roll the team to victory. Other members include Simon Roberts, Simon Chan, Edward Ma and George Leung from the Bureau. During the semi-final, the CPB team narrowly escaped defeat at the capable hands of Crime KE who forced CPB to catch up at the last five ends. The atmosphere of the final, which saw CPB team pitted against EU NTN (a very strong competitor) was tense with all players displaying a great amount of concentration.
Kowloon East win the Pentagon Cup

THE Pentagon Cup Football Tournament was resurrected this year to see more than 100 officers from the Force Crime Prevention Capability temporarily put aside their heavy workload and compete in the energised 5-a-side tourney. Seven teams played twelve games ending with the Crime Prevention Bureau team going up against RCPO KE in the final, with a fit KE team showing superior skills to win the game 3-0. The cup is now proudly displayed in the RCPO KE office, but team members will need to work hard if they want to retain it when the competition is held again in March 1999.
