Pioneers, Jets win; Bears, Chiefs struggle



Last week, the hockey regular season ended much like it started for Richard, with a lopsided win against Huron.

In late November, the Pioneers kicked things off with a 6-1 victory against the Chiefs, led by five goals from Michael Hodgson. On Thursday, in what was the last game before regionals, Richard won 8-0 over Huron, guided by four Hodgson goals, the last of which was his 51st of the season.

Aside from Hodgson, goals also were scored by Devin Dickow, Jack Skrzynski, Brandon Damron and Eric Blevins.

Skrzynski, who has played strong as of late, had four assists in the contest, while one each came from Hodgson, Damron, John Ames, Zach Gilreath, Joe Lavine, Dillon Lauria and Jon Rhind.

Richard is scheduled to take on Anderson tonight in second-round regional playoff action in Allen Park. Anderson knocked off Cabrini to advance, while the Pioneers had a first-round bye.

Huron has a first-round bye in its Division 2 hockey regional and will play Thursday against either Flat Rock-Airport or Monroe SMCC.

Roosevelt

With two defeats last week, Roosevelt closed out what was another tough season for the team in the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League.

The Bears fell 7-1 to Orchard Lake St. Mary last Wednesday and were beaten 8-3 by Warren De La Salle on Saturday.

Against visiting St. Mary, the Bearsí Matt Calhoun scored his teamís only goal, which was netted on the power play, but came when the team was already down 5-0. Assists on Calhounís goal went to Jake Coulter and Bryce Matulonis.

Three nights later, at De La Salle, it was a similar story, as Andrew Storey put Roosevelt on the board with a power goal, but it came with the Wyandotte skaters already down 5-0. Joshua Hinderliter and Joe Smellie were both credited with assists on Storeyís goal.

Later in the second period, Joe Nevalo scored unassisted and Storey netted a goal unassisted in the third.

Yesterday, the Bears scheduled to take on powerhouse Trenton in the first round of state hockey regionals.

Flat Rock-Airport

For much of the season, the Flat Rock-Airport team was finding itself on the wrong end of lopsided scores.

Fortunately for the Jets, that wasnít the case down the stretch.

Last Friday night, the squad picked up a 6-5 win against Monroe and lost only 3-1 to Crestwood on Tuesday and fell 5-2 to Carlson Saturday.

In the victory, Ryan Eyler picked up another hat trick for the season, while teammates Garrett Gillis, Sam Farrah and Seth Farrah each added a goal each. Seth Farrahís goal was scored with 1:43 left in the contest and was the game winner.

Against Crestwood, Seth Farrah picked up the teamís lone goal and on Saturday Ryan Eyler and Sam Farrah each netted one.

The Jets were scheduled to take on host Monroe SMCC last night in Division 2 regionals, with the winner moving on to play Huron Thursday
