The Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Cranes lost to the Marine City Cardinal Mooney Cardinals 61-47 at home on Friday. The loss moves Cranbrook to 8-3 on the year, while Cardinal Mooney moves to 7-4.

Cranbrook senior forward Jordan Roebuck led all scorers with 18 points, while junior guard Cam Garner and senior forward Sam Hauxwell each added 10 in the Cranes’ effort. Junior center Bryce Hall had 10 rebounds in a noteworthy effort.

Cardinal Mooney senior guard Nolan Julio had 15 points, while senior forward Nick Bastian had 13 points to ensure the Cardinals victory.

The Cranes got out of the gate early, with big 3-point shots from Roebuck and Garner. Beginning his strong rebounding effort, Hall dominated the boards early.

The Cranes led 12-11 at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Hauxwell found his range, hitting several field goals to lead the Cranes scoring. But Julio and senior guard Jacob Marshell began a series of 3-point shots for Cardinal Mooney to overtake Cranbrook.

The Cardinals led 26-22 at the half.

Roebuck resumed his scoring in the third quarter, including a big 3-point play to help move the Cranes back to par with Cardinal Mooney.

The game stood at 37-37 at the end of the third quarter.

Bastian and Julio would put the game outreach for Cranbrook, however, as they began a torrent of field goals in the fourth quarter. The Cardinals would post 24 points in the final period to seal the 61-47 victory.

Cranbrook moves on to face Riverview Gabriel Richard on the road next week, while Cardinal Mooney hosts Royal Oak Shrine at home in divisional CHSL action.
