Cougars fall to Cardinals

BLOOMFIELD — Bloomfield scored the first seven points of a Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference boys basketball game against North Daviess, and that was all the Cardinals needed to creep a little closer to the Cougars in the conference standings.

Bloomfield (11-7, 4-2 SWIAC) defeated North Daviess (12-5, 3-2), 39-26, Friday, behind 22 points from Kyle Robinson.

Robinson added six rebounds while making nine of 11 field goal attempts.

Bloomfield ended the evening making 14-23 from the field, all within the arc.

And while the Cardinals moved to within a half-game of the Cougars in the conference, the loss likely ended any chances North Daviess had of catching league-leading Linton who entered the evening with a 5-0 conference mark.

While the Cougars had troubles finding the key to Robinson, North Daviess did little to help itself from long range, hitting 5-23 from behind the arc.

The Cougars ended hitting 10-37 from the field.

The Cardinals started quickly, taking the 7-0 lead in the opening four minutes of the first quarter. Nick Crays got the Cougars on the board with a basket and a foul shot, but those were the lone points North Daviess would score.

The Cardinals ran off the next six points in the opening quarter, and Bloomfield led 13-3 at the end of the period.

North Daviess cut into the lead to open the second quarter after both teams started slowly in the first two minutes without a score.

Dusten Cook hit a 3-pointer to narrow the gap to 13-6 before Alex Wittmer hit the first of two treys for a 13-9 Bloomfield led.

Eli Combs put back a Bloomfield miss for the Cardinals¹ first points of the second quarter, and Wittmer then hit his second trey to bring the Cougars back to within three at 15-12.

But the next six points went to Bloomfield, most going to Robinson who ended the half with 12 points on six of eight shooting.

The third quarter was more of the same, as the Cardinals opened a 13-point lead at 27-14 midway through the period.

Kelby Byer had scored the opening points of the second half to cut the gap to 21-14, but that was before Robinson scored and was fouled for his 15th point and a 24-14 lead.

North Daviess was able to narrow the gap to 27-17 and then 29-20 at the end of the third.

The Cougars did cut the gap to seven in the early portion of the final quarter, but that was as close as North Daviess would get.

Robinson scored seven points in a final quarter where the hosts slowly pulled away.

Crays was held to five points after suffering a potential hand injury in the opening quarter. Crays was expected to play in this evening¹s home game against North Knox, although the extent of the injury was unknown following the game.

The loss against Bloomfield was the first in the last seven games in the series.
