GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Huron League roundup



After suffering a tough loss to Trenton earlier in the week, the Grosse Ile girls’ basketball team rebounded well in their final home game of the season.

The Red Devils defeated Cabrini 48-30 in their senior night game.

The Monarchs started out poor, missing their defensive assignments on which Grosse Ile players they wanted to defend closely and it cost them two early triples.

Grosse Ile led 16-6 after the first half, but a more up tempo game on the Monarchs’ part in the second quarter made it 22-20 at the half.

But the Red Devils were not going to let it stay close and controlled the second half play.

“The second half was all GI,” Cabrini Coach Mike Rozanski said. “They controlled both the offensive and defensive glass, dictated tempo with their half court defense, and continued to execute their offenses effectively.”

Grosse Ile Coach Sandy Tobin was pleased with her team’s efforts, especially in the second half.

“We had a great second half on the defensive end,” Tobin said.

The Red Devils held the Monarchs to just eight points in the second half, including a scoreless fourth quarter.

The Monarchs were led by Emily Zgoda with 11 points.

Hanna and Sophia Formella each recorded four points on the night.

The Red Devils were led by Mady Jankowski and Sarah Moehr with 11 points each. Alex Carney and Kate Tobin followed with eight points each.

Grosse Ile is still struggling at the free throw line, but had a nice night at the three-point line.

Moehr finished the night with three triples, Tobin had two and Jankowski and Megan Swick each had one.



FR finally falls

In their only game last week, the previously undefeated Flat Rock girls’ basketball team lost a tough 47-41 game to Farmington Hills Mercy.

Things got bad early and the Rams found themselves down 21-5 after just the first eight minutes.

The Rams outscored their opponent in the middle quarters and trailed by only seven points, 28-21 at the half.

With three minutes to play in the fourth quarter, the Rams tied the game 38-38, but could not complete the comeback.

“Unfortunately, we had a bad first quarter where we fell behind by 16,” Coach Marc Villemure said. “We played very well the rest of the game to tie things up at 38 with about three to go, but couldn’t get over the hump.”

The Rams were also troubled by free throw attempts, and finished the night six-for-25 from the free throw line.

Paige Villemure led the team with her 16 points.

Morgan Kaiser finished the night with 11 points and Haley Boyer led with 13 rebounds to go with her nine points.

Despite the loss, Villemure thought it was a good game to help the team see where they stand.

“It was a great game to see where our team is at and hopefully helped us get ready for districts next week.”

The Rams have a bye in the first round of districts and will play the winner of Cabrini and Summit tonight.



Huron wins two

Huron added two more wins to their record last week to finish the season 14-6 overall (9-5 Huron League).

On Feb. 20, the Chiefs defeated Allen Park 49-30.

Huron took a 12-7 lead after the first eight minutes and were only outscored in the final quarter (11-9) but strong middle quarters secured their win.

In the second and third quarters, the Chiefs outscored the Jags 28-11.

Lissa Kowalewski dominated the offense and recorded a double-double with 24 points and 10 rebounds. She also had two blocks and two assists.

Hailey Richardson finished the night with 11 points, two rebounds and three steals, and Savannah Floyd had nine points.

The next night the Chiefs defeated Ferndale University 53-43.

University outscored the Chiefs in the second half but a lead of 24-11 at the half, helped the Chiefs to their victory.

Kowalewski again led the team with another double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Kristin Wolber had seven points and Summer Callahan, Richardson and Floyd all finished with six points.

Floyd had eight rebounds on the night and Richardson finished with four steals.

Wolber and Callahan each had three assists.
