Chandler could do no wrong in the first half Friday night.

Chandler's sophomore runningback Chase Lucas sees daylight in their contest with visiting Basha in first half action, Friday, October 25, 2013 in Chandler. [Jerry Burch/ Special to Tribune]
The Chandler football team is the undisputed king of its city this year.
Third-ranked Chandler struck early and often on its way to a 56-10 win over visiting Perry in a Division I, Section I football game Friday.
These teams faced off in a memorable shootout in 2012, as Basha jumped out to a 17-0 halftime lead but watched as Chandler scored 41 second-half points to secure a 10-point win. The Wolves will be favored in this one, especially coming off a victory over Hamilton a few weeks back. Chandler’s offense may be even more explosive than last year behind QB Bryce Perkins, RB Chase Lucas, WR Mitch McCulley, WR Dionte Sykes and WR Elijah Sykes, while Basha should be able to put up points as well led by quarterback Zach Werlinger and wide receiver Doc O’Connor. It should be another entertaining showdown, but Chandler’s vast array of weapons on offense may be too much for the Bears to slow down.
Prediction: Chandler 45, Basha 38

The Chandler-Hamilton rivalry has seen its share of ugliness in its nearly two decades — hence the Chandler Police Department mobile command center parked outside Chandler High on Friday night. Inside the stadium, the two offenses provided the unsightliness for three-plus quarters.

The embodiment of Mountain Pointe football – physical, athletic and relentless – was helped off the field.
Mountain Pointe cornerback Dominique Fenstermacher (6) tackles Wolves running back Chase Lucas (20) during the football game between Chandler and Mountain Pointe at Chandler on Friday, Sept. 20, 2013.
The talented sophomore was not expected to make this big of an impact early on, but injuries forced coach Shaun Aguano’s hand and Lucas has excelled once given the opportunity. He burst onto the scene in a season-opening win over Peoria Centennial and has totaled 49 carries for 301 yards and five touchdowns as well as 17 receptions for a team-best 242 yards and three touchdowns. The Wolves have talented skill guys across the board, but it’s mighty impressive that this young sophomore may be the most dangerous of them all.
Honorable mention: Finton Connolly, OL/DL, Campo Verde; Turrell Pietz-Noble, RB, Mesa; Doc O’Connor, WR, Basha; Tyler Bloom, QB, Higley; Brandon Hatfield, WR, Poston Butte.
