Dearborn returned to action two days later and opened the KLAA East game with a dominating 44-21 victory on the road at Livonia Franklin. Charafeddine led the Pioneers in scoring with a dozen points in the win over the Patriots.
The Pioneers headed into the break with an overall record of 6-1 and with a 1-0 mark in the KLAA East. Dearborn is set to return to action on Friday January 6 with a KLAA East game at Livonia Churchill. On Tuesday, January 10, the Pioneers will make the short trip across town to face rival Fordson in another division battle.
Crestwood extends winning streak to 4
Another team that had success before the holidays was Crestwood. The Chargers extended their winning streak to four games with a pair of wins in Western Wayne Athletic Conference action. Crestwood traveled to Melvindale on Tuesday, December 20 and took a 44-24 victory. Two nights later, the Chargers made the quick trip across town to take on local rival Annapolis and earned a 50-27 win over the Cougars.
Crestwood improved to 5-3 overall and 4-0 in WWAC after going 1-3 in the non-conference slate to start the year. The Chargers have won their last three games — all against WWAC opponents — by an average of about 24 points per night, including a 50-point win over crosstown rival Robichaud on Dec. 16.
The four-game winning streak will be put to the test when Crestwood returns to action on Tuesday, January 10 at home against defending WWAC champion Romulus. The Eagles are also 4-0 in the conference so far and their four wins have come by an average of 55 points per game.
Fordson lands three-game skid
The week for Fordson’s women’s basketball team began with a brutal 61-32 defeat at Brighton on Tuesday, December 20 in what was an east-west KLAA crossover battle. The 32 points scored by the Tractors was their lowest total in a game so far this season. The Bulldogs’ 61 points were the most Fordson allowed this year.
The defeat at Brighton also extended the Tractors losing streak to three games at the time, having opened the season with a 3-0 mark.
However, Fordson picked up a well-deserved victory before the holidays. The Tractors hit the road two nights later and took a 41-36 victory over Livonia Stevenson in their KLAA East opener. While the offensive uptick was marginal, the Tractors’ defensive performance came after allowing an average of about 53 points per game during their three-game losing skid.
Fordson (4-3, 1-0 KLAA East) will return to action after the holidays with a KLAA East game at Westland John Glenn on Tuesday, January 6. Four nights later, the Tractors will host Crosstown rival Dearborn High in the first of two highly anticipated regular season meetings between the two teams.
Annapolis drops to 1-5 with losses to Crestwood, Thurston
Annapolis capped off the 2022 calendar year with a 50-27 loss to city rival and WWAC foe Crestwood on Thursday, Dec. 22 at home and it continued what has been a rocky start for the Cougars this season.
Two days earlier, Annapolis suffered a 41-27 conference loss on the road to Redford Thurston.
Overall, it’s been a challenge for Annapolis (1-5, 1-3 WWAC) to put points on the board. In six games, the Cougars are averaging around 26 points per game, which has unfortunately resulted in lopsided losses, as their average margin of loss is also around 26 points.
Annapolis will be looking to get back on track when they visit WWAC foe Garden City on Tuesday, January 10. Three nights later, the Cougars will visit rival Robichaud for another conference game.
Advanced Tech, Edsel Ford and Robichaud suffer unbalanced losses
Three local women’s basketball teams played just one game last week before Christmas. Dearborn Advanced Tech Academy, Edsel Ford and Robichaud were all in action on Tuesday, December 20, and each team was on the wrong end of a lopsided scoreline.
ATA suffered a 61-14 loss at Detroit University Prep. With the loss, the Lakers slipped to 1-4 overall this season. Next up for ATA was a Thursday game against Erie Mason at a showcase at Carleton Airport. The Lakers will play again on Tuesday, January 10 at Ecorse. The Lakers’ only win this year came against the Red Raiders on Dec. 9.
Edsel Ford saw his losing streak extend to three games with a 55-22 loss on the road to Downriver League foes Trenton on Tuesday, December 20, which was the team’s final game in the calendar year 2022. With the loss, the Thunderbirds slipped to 2-5 on aggregate and 2-3 in the league. Additionally, this was the third straight game in which Edsel was held under 30 points. The T-Birds are set to take the floor next Thursday, Jan. 5, when they wrap up a four-game road swing with a non-league game against Allen Park Inter-City Baptist.
For Robichaud, a rocky start to the 2022-23 campaign continued with a 66-13 loss at home to Romulus on Tuesday, December 20. The Bulldogs’ record slipped to 0-3 overall and in WWAC. Overall, the Robichaud program is looking to turn things around after winning just 12 games since the start of the 2017-18 season. Next up for the Bulldogs is a Friday, January 13 home game against city rival and WWAC foe Annapolis.
Star International move to 3-1
Tuesday. On Dec. 20, Star International won its second straight game and improved to 3-1 this season with a 39-27 win at Warren Michigan Math & Science Academy.
Defense has been a calling card for the Falcons so far. Across four contests, they allowed an average of about 26 points per game.
