Jerome Rogers scored 23 points, sinking 9-of-10 free throws and Anthony Qasawa added nine points for North Farmington, but the Raiders (7-1, 3-1) only had three players reach the scoring column.

Clarkston (6-1, 3-0) led 13-8 after the first quarter, only to see North Farmington go on a 14-9 second-quarter surge to bring the game to a 22-22 stalemate at the half.

The Wolves opened up some breathing room thanks to an 11-2 third quarter, while the Raiders closed to within six points thanks to a 12-9 fourth stanza.

ROCHESTER HILLS CHRISTIAN 46, TROY BETHANY CHRISTIAN 36: Rochester Hills Christian remained alone atop the FBAC Red Division standings Friday night with this 10-point road win over the Bruins.
