When Crestwood and Robichaud met last month, the Chargers came away with a narrow victory over the Bulldogs in the first installment of the Dearborn Heights in-city rivalry.

On Tuesday night the squads met again and after one half of play Crestwood had a five-point lead over host Robichaud.

This time, however, a dominant second half sent the Bulldogs (10-7, 6-3 WWAC Blue) onto a lopsided 72-51 victory over the Chargers (11-6, 5-4 WWAC Blue).

Robichaud did most of its damage in the final quarter, where it outscored the visitors 21-8.

Kamaria McDaniel had 16 fourth-quarter points and finished with a game-high 34, while teammate Kayla Brown put in 23.

McDaniel, who is a Ms. Basketball finalist, was 11-for-11 at the free-throw line in the fourth quarter and for the game she was 16-for-19 at the charity stripe.

In the last meeting, Crestwood’s Demi Rodriguez knocked down seven triples and had 32 points. On Tuesday, she was held to 11 points and just one 3-pointer.

Maya Barakat led the Chargers with 14 points, while Natalia Ortiz was also in double figures with 11.

Crestwood got eight first-quarter points from Barakat and the squad trailed only 15-14 after the first eight minutes. For Robichaud in the first quarter, Brown led with six points and Terria Fisher scored four of her six total points.

In the second quarter, six different players scored for the Chargers. The team was led by five points from Rodriguez and a triple from Hiba Daifi, who finished with five points for the night

Robichaud was held to only nine second-quarter points, seven of which came from McDaniel, and the home team trailed 29-24 at the half.

After the break, McDaniel and Brown really heated up and combined for 16-third quarter points.

For Crestwood, Ortiz also netted eight points in the third quarter, but Robichaud managed to grab a 45-43 lead heading into the final eight minutes.

In the fourth quarter, McDaniel’s 16-point effort doubled Crestwood’s team output, while Brown matched the opponent with another eight points, and the Bulldogs coasted to the 21-point victory.

Overall, Brown knocked down four triples and McDaniel hit twice from behind the arc.

Along the way, other points for Robichaud came from Monae Palmer (6), Meghan Best (2) and Knau'tica Gardette (1).

The Chargers also got points from Annemarie Carmona (5), Walaa Alhabhab (3) and Alicia Ortiz (2).

Next up for the Bulldogs is a game at Romulus on Friday night and Crestwood will host Dearborn High. Friday night will mark the end for the WWAC Red and Blue seasons, as well.
