Warren came out hot early in the first quarter. Some superb play by Jalen Lee and Marcus Green saw the orange and black with as much as a six point lead at one point in the first. Lee would score six points in the period, but a late quarter surge by Camden Fairview did away with the Lumberjack advantage. The Cardinals led by ten before the end of the quarter.

Struggles defensively became an issue in the second. Camden Fairview stretched their lead to eighteen before the halftime break. The Cardinals would go on to defeat Warren by the final of 66-35.

Warren moves to 1-7 on the year, and 0-1 in conference play.

Jalen Lee led Warren with 10 points on the night.
