Game Recap

The Pioneers would welcome the newest Catholic League Member, Austin Catholic. The new school is in it’s second year of existence and first year in the league was looking for their first win of the season. Gabriel Richard entered the game with an overall record of 6-0 and 1-0 in the league.

In the first, Richard would jump out early and take a commanding 19 to 2 lead. Led by Junior, Eric Wigginton who scored 6 and Senior, Yuri Alonte would add 5. The Pioneer defense would smother the visitors, holding them to just 2 points.

“We wanted to come out strong and play hard defense.” Coach Daiek said. “We where happy with the effort.” Daiek added.

In the second, both teams struggled to find the rhythm, offensively. Junior, Devin Gleason would score 5 points to pace GR while Austin could only muster 3 points in the quarter. Richard would hed into half time leading 25-5.

“It’s tough starting from scratch.” Coach Daiek said of Austin Academy. “I give the players and coaches credit, they where working hard and they never stopped for 32 minutes. They will get there.” Daiek added.

In the third, GR would find the mark outscoring Austin 13 to 5. Sophomore, Garrett Balaszi would lead the charge with 8 points in the quarter while Zack Loewengruber would add 3. Sophomore, Santiago Cardenas would drop in 5 points for the Crusaders.

In the fourth, the Pioneers shots continued to fall. Tyler Smith (JR) would drop in 4 points, Jonah D’Herin (JR), Drew Dykowski (JR) and Balaszi (SO) would all hit three pointers. All the Pioneers would score in the game and GR would cruise to a 57-15 win.

The Pioneers have now won seven in a row and will host Jewish Academy on Tuesday night as they look to make it eight.

“We are not really looking at the wins, to be honest.” Coach Daiek said. “Our guys are working on just playing hard everyday. Up 10 down 10…just keep playing hard.” Daiek said.

Game Recap

The Pioneers traveled to Detroit to open up league play against Cristo Rey. Gabriel Richard would play in the historic Holy Redeemer. The facility went through some major renovations with the addition of a new floor, bleachers, wall pads and scoreboards.

“The facility was awesome.” Athletic Director/Head Basketball Coach, Kris Daiek said. “Their administration did a great job of upgrading the facilities. A lot of great basketball games have been played in this building and seems their will be more in the future.”

After not playing a game for over 10 days the Pioneers exploded in the first quarter with 18 points, while the defense held the Wolves to just 5 points. There where no signs of rust for GR.

Senior, Tim Augustyniak scored 10 points in the opening quarter while Junior, Eric Wigginton scored 4 and Senior, Yuri Alonte hit for 3.

“We have been focusing on our defense over the past week or two.” Coach Daiek said. “We have always relied on our defense and tonight was a step in the right direction.”

In the second, the defense would hold the Wolves to just three baskets and outscore Cristo Rey 21-8 in the quarter. Richard would walk into the locker room up 39-13. Senior, Anthony Brown would score 9 points in the quarter while Wigginton and Augustyniak would add 5 points a piece.

“We where a little surprised.” Coach Daiek said. “They (Cristo Rey) may have battling some injuries or illness. We definitely didn’t expect to be up by that many” Daiek added.

In the third, GR kept the defensive pressure and held the Wolves to just two baskets. The Pioneers could only muster up 9 points for the quarter. Augustyniak would score 4 in the quarter. Sophomore, Garrett Balaszi would add a bucket and Wigginton would also add a bucket.

In the fourth, Richard would escape a 22 point surge by the Wolves. Cristo Rey would hit 4 three pointers in the quarter and outscore the Pioneers by 13. Cristo Rey guard, Dan Worthy scored 8 points in the quarter.
