The Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Cranes lost a close game to the Dearborn Divine Child Falcons 14-10. The loss moves Cranbrook to 2-2 on their season.
The Cranes got on the scoreboard first with a 31-yard field goal by junior K Chase Paulus at the 7:39 mark in the first quarter. This was Paulus’ third field goal this season.
Cranbrook struck again on a 35-yard touchdown pass from senior QB Jack Fairman to senior WR Jacob Peruski at the 2:56 mark in the second period.
The Cranes held a 10-0 lead at the half.
In the second half, Divine Child would put together two long drives- one ending in a short yardage TD pass, the other on a short yardage TD run.
While Cranbrook penetrated deep into Falcon territory several times, they failed to score in the second half.
The 14-second half points were just enough for Divine Child to squeeze out a win.
“Divine Child did an excellent job of putting together a couple of drives in the second half,” said Cranes Head Coach Ben Jones. “My hat’s off to them for a well-executed game plan.”
Senior Jack Fairman led the Cranes in total offense with 156 total yards and 1 passing TD. DE Bryce Hall led the Cranes defensively with a sack and sharing leading tackles with seniors LB Jungwon Lee, LB Tariq Muhammad, and DT Ahmad Masood.
The Cranes move on to play Walled Lake Central next week in a non-conference matchup.
