The Willow Run High School basketball team (2-1), came up short to the visiting Ann Arbor Huron High School (3-0) Tuesday night. After battling back the entire game, the Flyers fell to the Rats 65-56.

Huron took an early lead and hardly looked back from there. Philip Mathew made a three pointer and ended the game with 7 points. Andrew Gleichert, who finished with 6 points, made a tough layup while being fouled. The River Rats led 16-6 after the first quarter.

Flyers guard Brian Cogdell fought hard to keep his team within striking distance. Cogdell led the Flyers with 17 points on the night. With only 17 points total, it was a low scoring second quarter for both teams and Huron kept Willow Run at arm’s length going into halftime with a 7 point lead 23-16.

The third quarter provided more scoring for both teams. Huron went on a run, after a steal and layup by A.J. Mathew (brother of Philip) who had a game high 13 points their lead stretched to 13, and was 14 going into the fourth quarter.

The Flyers wouldn’t go quietly. Reno Boyd fought hard down low for rebounds and tough points. Boyd ended the night with 15 points. Through tough defense and foul shots, the River Rats kept the game in hand.

Willow Run goes on the road Friday to face off against Romulus. The game begins at 7 p.m.
