Riverview welcomed Grosse Ile last Wednesday and came away with a 2-1 win in what was the second game of the year between the two Huron League rivals.

The contest, which was a rematch of a 1-1 tie on Sept. 9, went scoreless for the first half, as neither the Red Devils (12-5-1, 8-4-1 Huron League) nor the Pirates (13-2-4, 10-0-2) could get on the board.

13 minutes into the second half, Grosse Ile’s Jeff Drzyzga put the visitors up 1-0 with a goal that bounced off a defender before going into the net.

With 16 minutes left in the game, Riverview’s JR Bonadies answered and tied the game 1-1.

Just four minutes later, Bonadies sent a pass to teammate Jason Smith, who promptly fired it into the next and put the Pirates up 2-1, which was a lead they hung onto for the victory.

Two days earlier Riverview was home against Milan and knocked off the Big Reds 4-1.

Jason Roberts had two early goals, both of which were assisted by Tyler Hunt and gave his squad a 2-0 advantage to work with.

Victor Korkis scored the Pirates’ third goal and was assisted by Adam Kulaszewski.

Milan got on the board soon after Korkis’ goal, but Hunt later scored and sealed his team’s 4-1 victory.

Riverview ended the week in first place, just two points ahead of second-place Huron. The Pirates play next at Jefferson and then close out the league season with a battle at home against the Chiefs.


Huron outscored its two opponents 19-0 last week, as the Chiefs (12-2-1, 10-2) beat Flat Rock 8-0 last Monday and then hammered Monroe Jefferson 11-0 two days later.

At Flat Rock, seven different players scored for Huron. Ethan Teefey netted two goals, while Eric Jeska, Marco Marchionda, Jesse McGowan, Tyler Keller, Jose Victor de Farias, and Cory Zeestraten all added one. Joe Georgic was credited with four assists, while Marchionda, McGowan, Kyle Becki and Hunter Moore earned one each.

“We went out and took care of business today,” said Huron Coach Dan Rossow after the game. “We moved the ball very well and played extremely unselfish. We have had many games where we have had multiple scorers. It is great not having to rely on just one person to get the job done.”

At Jefferson, the Chiefs started with three goals in the first five minutes.

Georgic led the way, scoring twice and adding five assists. Marchionda scored two goals, as well, while McGowan, Moore, Becki, Cody Salajan, Nick Sanderlin, Josh Coffee and Jose Victor de Farias scored one each.
