Despite 18 turnovers, Grosse Ile managed to hang on for a 54-49 Huron League victory last Friday at Flat Rock.

The Red Devils (5-5, 4-2 Huron) started the contest on a 9-0 run and played to a 13-5 first-quarter advantage.

However, the Rams (4-6, 1-4 Huron) charged back with 19 points in the second quarter, which included an 8-0 run to end the half, and the game was tied 24-24 at the break.

A back-and-forth third quarter, which included 16 points for each squad, left the game tied 40-40 going into the final eight minutes.

Flat Rock opened the fourth quarter with four points, but Grosse Ile capitalized on several steals and deflections to close the game on a 14-5 run and take the 54-49 win.

Danny McCarty finished with a game-high 26 points for the Devils, while Grosse Ile teammates Justin Moores and Tyler Moores both came away with 12 in the winning effort. For the Rams, Mike Mayberry led his team with 12 points.

Three nights earlier, a three-game win streak for the Devils had come to an abrupt halt in Milan, as the first-place Big Reds handed the Devils a 61-35 defeat.

Milan was up 24-10 after the first quarter and at the half had a comfortable 43-14 advantage, allowing the powerhouse squad to cruise to an easy victory.

McCarty scored a team-high 15 points for Grosse Ile and Daly finished up with 10.

For Flat Rock, the outcome of its Tuesday night contest was much better, as the squad knocked off Riverview 49-40 on the road. Mayberry scored a game-high 21 points and grabbed six rebounds, while the Pirates (1-8, 1-4 Huron) were led by Nolan Glime’s 18 points and eight rebounds.



Huron beats Riverview, loses to Airport

Huron went on a 13-minute, 20-3 run against visiting Riverview Friday night and ultimately crushed the Bucs 52-33.

To start the game, Riverview had grabbed an early 8-2 advantage, but the Chiefs charged back and were up 13-12 before the end of the first quarter.

With the game tied 18-18 late in the first half, the Chiefs (3-7, 2-4 Huron) stepped on the gas and didn’t let up until midway through the fourth quarter. The dominating run was kicked off with a 3-pointer from Christopher Schultz, as his team scored the last five points of the half and took a 23-18 advantage into the break.

Austin Bell led Huron in the game with 15 points, while Schultz scored 13 and Tyler Olson came away with nine. Riverview’s Nolan Glime led all scorers with 19 points for the night.

For the Chiefs, Friday’s win followed up a tough 64-31 defeat at Airport three nights earlier. That evening Schultz led the locals in points with eight, while Bell had six and Olson netted five.
