Bulldogs' coach tossed after two techs

Just another night running the gauntlet.

Such is the MAC Red Division.

Coach Mark Dickinson’s Port Huron Northern squad had just picked up a road win at Romeo, knocking of the Bulldogs 51-34 to hand coach Connie Hernden’s squad its first loss.

“We were a little worried about the week the way it broke,” said Dickinson. “We knew Cousino would be an emotional game and we knew it would be an emotional game against Romeo tonight. We talked about that yesterday at practice. Romeo was undefeated. It’s always tough to play here. Connie (Hernden) is a great coach, and they have good athlete.

“We know this is a tough league. We’ve been through these battles before with Cousino, Romeo, (Grosse Pointe) South and other teams in the league. Everybody is going to be good. If you are not ready to play, you are going to lose. We want to stay in the race and our kids know you have to perform every night,” continued Dickinson.

His Huskies fell to Cousino, the defending Class A state champs, 53-51, on Wednesday in a MAC Red contest. It is Port Huron Northern’s only loss. The Huskies advanced to the state quarterfinals last year.

Dickinson’s team travels to Grosse Pointe twice next week for games against GP South and GP North.

“This is a tough stretch for us. There are no easy games in this league. That is what makes it fun. Our kids like it. You have to come out and compete. You have to execute or you lose,” said Dickinson, whose team is 1-1 in the league, 8-1 overall.

Sami Klink led the Huskies with 13 points. Bree Bauer scored 11 and Kathleen O’Connor added six points. All three players are captains.

Port Huron Northern led 16-8 at the end of the first quarter and was up 24-15 at halftime. After three quarters, the advantage for the Huskies was 35-23.

Romeo (1-1, 7-1) was paced by junior guard/forward Amber Flinn’s nine points. Senior guard Cate Bova scored seven and sophomore guard/forward Oliva Medaugh had five points.

“Port Huron Northern is one of the best teams in the state. They went to the quarterfinals last year and I wouldn’t be surprised if they headed down that same path this year. They are extremely athletic. They have so many weapons, both on the offensive end as well as the defensive end. Mark does a great job with that team,” said Hernden.

“I am very proud of my team the way they stuck up for themselves, each other and me,” continued the Romeo coach.

Hernden picked up a pair of technical fouls in the second half and had to leave the bench. The first came when she questioned a referee’s call. The second came when the refs decided she spent too much time inserting a replacement for a player who had fouled out.

She will not be on the bench when the Bulldogs host Grosse Pointe North on Tuesday.
