Host Allen Park overcame a late deficit last Thursday night against Grosse Ile and went on to survive a triple-overtime battle en route to a 76-72 non-league victory.

For the Red Devils (1-3), Danny McCarty led all scorers with 28 points, while the top shooter for the Jaguars (3-3, 1-2 Downriver League) was Antonio Reviere, who finished with 27 points for the night.

Allen Park also got 18 points from Jarett Shinault and 13 from Danny Monear, while the Devils’ Tommy Daly scored 14 and his teammate Tyler Moores came away with 13.

Daly had a big night on the boards for Grosse Ile, as well, as he pulled down 19 rebounds. For the Jags, Reviere grabbed 15 total rebounds.

After the first quarter of last Thursday’s game, the Devils were up 13-6 and at the half had extended their lead to 25-17.

Out of the break, the Jags continued to trail and were down by 13 late in the third quarter. At that point, however, the green-and-white group came out of a timeout and went on an 11-0 run to close out the quarter.

In the last eight minutes of regulation, the hosts outscored the Devils 14-12, leaving the score tied at 54-54 when time ran out.

In the first overtime, each team managed only four points, which left a 58-58 deadlock and the need for another overtime.

The second extra period ended in a tie, as well, as both squads each put eight more points on the board.

To finally decide the outcome, Allen Park outscored Grosse Ile by four points in the third overtime and hung on for the 76-72 win.

“We started very flat and without much intensity, but we found enough plays to get a big win to start the new year,” said Jags Coach Jim Victor. “(It was a) very exciting game and I thought we never stopped competing and that allowed us to stay positive and find enough plays to overcome the slow start.”

Although it was a tough defeat for the Devils, Coach Bryan Friel was happy with the hard work he saw from his group and said it should ultimately serve as a learning experience.

“Our effort was incredible and I'm very proud of my players,” Friel said. “It was a disappointing loss, but one that will help us going forward…”

Grosse Ile was scheduled to open Huron League action last night against Riverview, but the game was canceled due to the weather. Allen Park was scheduled for a DRL game at Woodhaven, but that contest was also canceled. On Friday night the Devils will host Monroe SMCC and the Jags are set to welcome in Trenton.



Summit

With its fifth consecutive win to start the season, Summit crushed Dearborn Henry Ford Academy 65-31 last Friday night on the road.

For the Dragons (5-0, 1-0 Charter School League), Christian Flannigan led the way with 21 points and 11 rebounds.

Also coming up big for Summit was Leavohn Lewis, who added 14 points and finished with 10 assists.

Henry Ford’s Kyle Harper led his team in points with 11.

Last night the Dragons were scheduled to host Southfield Bradford Academy, but the game was canceled due to the weather. On Friday, Summit will travel to Harper Woods Chandler Park.



Carlson

Carlson took on Detroit Mumford Dec. 28 and was knocked off 66-54 in a non-league game played at Dearborn Heights Robichaud.

Jared Henson led the Marauders (3-3, 2-1 DRL) in scoring with 21 points, while teammate Prince Ideozu finished the game with 13 and Zack Kohn came away with 12.

After the first quarter, Carlson was only down 17-14, but in the second quarter the Mustangs outscored the Marauders 21-11 and were up 38-25 going into the half.

Carlson was unable to cut into the Mumford lead in the second half, as the two teams were nearly even in points scored during the final 16 minutes

The Marauders are scheduled to play again Friday night and will welcome in Truman for a league game.



Woodhaven

Last Saturday night Woodhaven hosted Monroe in a non-league game and was handed a 62-40 defeat.

Marrell Pulley scored a team-high 17 points for the Warriors (0-5, 0-3 DRL) against the much-improved Trojans (5-2, 1-1 SEC Red), who have already surpassed their 2012-13 season win total.

Woodhaven will be in action again Friday night with a game at Melvindale. Yesterday’s contest against Allen Park was canceled to the weather.



Huron

The early-season struggles continued for Huron last week with a 63-38 loss at home against Dearborn High.

The Chiefs (0-5) were scheduled to host Monroe Jefferson last night to open Huron League play and are set to welcome in Milan Friday night.
