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.
Chandler came into their Division I, Section I matchup with Gilbert riding high after the Wolves' first win over Hamilton in school history a week ago.
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 stat stares squarely at Chandler's psyche: 0 for 17.

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.

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.

Chandler wide receiver Dionte Sykes suffered a slight fracture when his hand slammed against a helmet at a recent practice and will be out for ‘a couple weeks,’ coach Shaun Aguano said.
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.
We’ve hit the “dead” zone.
