Huron League weekly roundup

With its Huron League season in the books, third-place Grosse Ile crossed the bridge twice last week for a pair of non-league battles and came away with mixed results.

On Tuesday, the Red Devils (12-8, 9-5) fell 62-59 in overtime at Trenton, but two nights later bounced back with a big 55-42 win at Woodhaven.

In the contest with Trenton, Grosse Ile grabbed an 11-7 first-quarter lead and then outscored the Trojans (6-14, 3-13) 16-5 in the next eight minutes to take a 27-12 advantage into the half.

Out of the break, Trenton dominated the third quarter and cut the deficit to 37-32.

The Trojans closed out the game by outscoring Grosse Ile again in the final quarter and tied the score at 55-55 at the end of regulation.

Trenton carried its momentum into overtime and ultimately came away with the 62-59 win against the Devils.

Tommy Daly led Grosse Ile with 21 points, while Tyler Moores netted 10 and both Justin Moores and Neil Smorch finished with eight.

For the Trojans, Christian Mercure had 18 points in the winning effort, while teammate Jaylin Jordan scored 16 and Jerry LaBell came away with 14.

Against Woodhaven, the Devils led 25-18 at the half and carried that momentum into the final 16 minutes to ultimately claim the 13-point victory in the regular season finale. Grosse Ile helped its cause by drawing several fouls against the Warriors (2-19, 0-16) which resulted in 29 total free throws for the night.

McCarty paced the Devils with 19 points, while Daly finished with 15 and Tyler Moores netted 13 in the winning effort. For Woodhaven, Maurice Witherspoon led with 12 points.

Grosse Ile will be in action again tonight, as the squad will face Flat Rock in the Class B District semifinals at Huron at 5 p.m. The winner of that contest will move on to play either Summit or Huron on Friday for the district championship.

Woodhaven and Trenton will also be in action tomorrow night, as the two squads will square off against each other at 5:30 p.m. at Roosevelt in a Class A District semifinal.

Huron

In the final week of Huron’s regular season, the squad knocked off a league opponent, but then fall to one of the area’s struggling teams in non-league action.

On Monday, the Chiefs (6-14, 6-8 Huron) played their league finale and beat visiting Monroe Jefferson 48-46. Cameron Cox and Tyler Olson both had 10 points for Huron, while Austin Bell had nine. Cox led the way in rebounds with five and Zach Schlarb grabbed four.

The next night, Huron traveled to Woodhaven and fell 52-41, in what was the only victory of the 2013-14 regular season for the Warriors (2-19, 0-16).

Olson scored 14 points for the Chiefs and Chris Schultz came away with eight, while Cox grabbed five rebounds.

Huron will play tomorrow night, at home, and face Summit Academy in the semifinals of the Class B District playoffs at 7 p.m. The winner of that contest will face either Grosse Ile or Flat Rock Friday night for the district title.

Flat Rock

While the week of non-league action got off to a tough start for Flat Rock, it wrapped up a on a high note for the squad.

The Rams (7-13, 5-9) welcomed in Erie-Mason on Tuesday and were dropped 58-42, but bounced back two nights later against visiting Cabrini with a 51-32 victory.

Next up for Flat Rock is a district semifinal game tomorrow night against Grosse Ile, at Huron, at 5 p.m. The winner of the contest will take on either Huron or Summit Academy on Friday night for the district title.

Riverview

This season Riverview struggled in Huron League play and unfortunately for the team it struggled last week outside of the conference, as well.

The Pirates went to Crestwood on Tuesday and fell 63-38 and on Thursday were dropped 62-46 by visiting Dearborn High.

As for the future, however, things look bright, as the team had nine juniors and two sophomores on the roster this year. One of those who should be back is junior Nolan Glime, who was one of the Downriver area’s top scorers this season.



Summit

Behind a big performance from Cory Hicks, Summit came away with a victory last week against one of the area’s other charter schools.

Hicks’ 31 points guided the Dragons (10-7, 3-5 CSL) to a 67-61 win against Taylor Trillium Academy.

Leavohn Lewis and Christian Flannigan both added 14 points for Summit, while Trillium’s Christian Oden scored 26 and Hardy Robb netted 15.

Next up for the Dragons is a Class B District semifinal game tomorrow against host Huron. The winner of that contest will face either Grosse Ile or Flat Rock on Friday for the district championship.
