Fordson Tops Robichaud

17 Jan

Something new is happening at Fordson High School, with a school known mostly for football in the past, the Tractors are now above .500 (5-2) on the young season after defeating Dearborn Heights Robichaud 57-36 on Thursday night.  With junior guard Moe Zahr leading the way with a game high 17 points, and a smothering defense that allowed little to nothing in the middle of the paint, the game way a clear lopsided victory for Fordson.  The argument could be made that the game was won in the first quarter of the contest.  Behind Zahr’s 8 points in the first quarter, Fordson built a 16-7 lead after one, and never let the margin get under double digits the rest of the night.  The 2-3 zone the Tractors used on the Bulldogs was they key deciding factor in this game.  The zone set the tempo for the rest of the game, Robichaud was unable to receive a consistent interior post-game, and had to rely on perimeter jump shots, which didn’t fall on the night.

Also making contributions on the night for Fordson was senior Amin Haydous with 7 points, and fellow senior wing Hassan Doghman with 11 points and 4 rebounds.  Vernon Crump Jr. led Robichaud with 12 points.
