DC cagers keep winning: DHS near top in WWAC

Divine Child basketball head coach Andy Dold has his Falcon cagers flying high this winter. After playing their first eight games of the season, DC owns a 7-1 overall record.

Two senior guards have been providing most of the scoring fire power. Steven Kushner and Randy Kuzdak are taking turns burning up the twine for the parochial home towners.

At the very start of this season, Dold expressed optimism about his boys who were then practicing in the gym.

“Our team starters and support players are looking good,” Dold siad. “We have a shot at a Catholic League title in our division this year.”

The Falcons are looking to continue their winning ways as they get closer to the halfway mark of the season. There is little doubt that the Falcons will make a good showing on the hardwood floor from now and into the “March Madness” state tournament action.

Over at Dearborn high school, head coach Kevin Barkoff is doing a lot of smiling these days. The Pioneers are enjoying victories over both of their city and league rivals, Edsel Ford and Fordson.

The only question still remaining is, can DHS knock off both the Thunderbirds and Tractors twice in the same season? At any rate, it is the Pioneers who are keeping the pace and making a run at the Western Wayne Athletic Association chamjpionship.

Senior guard Al Farhat has been the floor leader for DHS this season. He has been swishing the net at a continuous double digit scoring spree game after game.

The Pioneers and Romulus clearly are the leaders as the WWAC title race is starting to heat up. The next few weeks should be even more of an indicator of exactly what teams are contenders and in the hunt as compared to the pretenders and wannabe’s.

Truman leads Downriver loop
A perfect 8-0 record has put the Taylor Truman basketball team at the top of the Downriver League standings. The Cougars kept their undefeated status with a 57-53 victory over a tough Trenton squad this past Tuesday night.

One of Truman’s challengers is Lincoln Park. The Railsplitters are 6-2 at the moment, and enjoyed a 72-61 triumph over Gibraltar Carlson on Jan. 17. Other Downriver League team action last week saw Wyandotte Roosevelt squeek out a 51-48 win against Southgate Anderson.
