Sierra Vista - Long road trips, especially for non-section games that weren't necessarily requested to be scheduled, can sometimes cause the traveling team to approach the task more like a burden than a goal-driven event.
Most followers are drooling over the Hamilton vs. Mountain Pointe matchup next week, but this is easily the marquee game of the week, so nobody is putting any carts before the horses here. Speaking of horses, both sides have them aplenty. Chandler showed its vast potential against a good Centennial team in Week 1, then hammered slightly-lesser competition until last week. The Wolves led a top-5 team in the country in St. John Bosco (Calif.) 28-17 at halftime, but Bosco put up 35 points in the second half to pull away. Still, Chandler made little bones about its ability to play with anyone, and that includes Mountain Pointe. The Pride perked up everyone’s ears in beating (Las Vegas) Bishop Gorman in the Barry Sollenberger Classic, but the Pride haven’t been tested to any significant degree since then. Both sides know that will obviously change here, and there’s no reason to think this year’s meeting couldn't be even better-played and just as wild an ending as the 2012 meeting. Which team either scores last, or can stop the other one more time?
Prediction: Mountain Pointe 34, Chandler 31
The Wolves have been one of the most impressive teams in the earlygoing. They easily beat Peoria Centennial in Week 1 and boatraced Sierra Vista Buena from the outset on Friday night. Star wide receiver Dionte Sykes is back from a broken hand, giving the offense yet another weapon. Chandler stays at No. 4 heading into Saturday's showdown against Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, one of the best teams in the country.
The Wolves remain at No. 4 heading into their showdown against nationally ranked Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco on Saturday afternoon. Chandler's victories over Centennial and Buena continue to look better as those teams challenge some of the East Valley's best. The Wolves can make a huge statement by hanging tough or even beating Bosco.
The Wolves are off to a great start with a pair of easy wins against Centennial and Buena. They now begin one of the toughest month-long stretches anyone could imagine, with Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco (2-0), Hamilton and Mountain Pointe all on the docket among the next four games. Bryce Perkins has played very well in his first two games at quarterback, while the team has found a gem in sophomore running back Chase Lucas. Star wide receiver Dionte Sykes caught two touchdowns in his season debut last week while fellow wideout Mitch McCulley also had a score after a quiet first week. Chandler (2-0) likely has the pieces to score, but the biggest question will be how it fares against St. John Bosco’s mammoth line. Bosco is ranked No. 4 in the country by Maxpreps and has few weaknesses. The Wolves may be hard-pressed to pull out a win in this one, but they are one of the few teams from Arizona that has the weapons to keep it competitive.
Prediction: St. John Bosco 42, Chandler 31

Bryce Perkins recently turned 16 years old, which means he was offered a football scholarship by Arizona State before he had his driver's license.
Sure, 16 of 29 Division I football teams are going to make the playoffs, but you can argue that could be as much a curse for several schools as it might be a blessing to have a playoff game experience.
In 2006, the Hamilton football program began a trend of venturing out from Arizona to play some of the nation’s premier teams. The Huskies have acquitted themselves well in these high-profile matchups, winning several and staying competitive in the losses, proving they deserve mention among the country’s top programs.
Outlook: Last year’s showing for Chandler was reminiscent of past seasons. There were flashes of dominance, but the overall picture was a bit underwhelming. The Wolves started 4-0, including a comeback win over Basha, and then lost 28-27 to Mountain Pointe. However, Hamilton and Desert Vista beat Chandler handily in the regular season and Brophy knocked the Wolves out of the playoffs in the first round.
Here are the East Valley high school varsity football schedules for 2013. This list will be continuously updated.
Instead of asking for gifts, St. John Bosco sixth-graders Lauren A. and Shea S. combined their recent 12th birthday parties into a fundraiser for a family in need. The Perres are local residents facing heart wrenching medical issues and staggering medical costs. Within two months of one another, Mrs. Perre was diagnosed with a form of Lou Gehrig’s disease and her 16-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. Lauren and Shea invited the entire sixth-grade population of St. John Bosco, as well as many other friends, to party at Desert Foothills Park on April 26. In lieu of birthday gifts, Shea, Lauren and their friends dug into their piggy banks and donated money to help the Perres. In the end, Lauren, She and their friends collected approximately $1,700. The Perres were overwhelmed at the compassion and generosity of both the girls and the community.
