The Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Cranes (1-0) will face the University of Detroit Jesuit Cubs (1-0)  in Week 2 CHSL action.  Both teams are coming off season opening wins last week.


Cranbrook comes off a road win, getting past Pontiac High 41-0.  But the Cranes are not resting on their opening victory.


“I was proud of the team last week, “said Cranes Head Coach Ben Jones.  “They played with a toughness against a team with playmakers. We will need to keep that intensity facing our next opponent.”


Senior RB/LB Jack Fairman and senior RB/LB Tariq Muhammad had an outstanding game, as did senior WR/DB Jacob Peruski and junior OL/DL Bryce Hall. 


Junior K Chase Paulus kicked a 50-yard FG in the Cranes winning performance. 


U of D won their season opener 17-6 against Roseville.  With a powerful run game, the Cubs racked up 175 yards rushing. 


UD senior TE/LB Dorian Mausi is a top-ranked college recruit who has committed to play college football at Duke University.  Senior WR/CB Carson Hinton also is a top recruit holding offers from Big Ten, ACC, and MAC schools.


“U of D is a talented team,” said Coach Jones.  “They are well-coached and make few mistakes.”


Last year the Cranes lost to U of D 36-29 in OT at home.  A kick return by Hinton for a TD made the difference


“Our division continues to get better and more competitive. Everyone is motivated to find new ways to win.  We look forward to a good game against U of D”, said Coach Jones. 


The game will be played Friday at Hazel Park High School.  The address is 23400 Hughes, Hazel Park MI 48030.  Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m.
