Chandler at Highland

Chandler at Highland:   Highland coach Pete Wahlheim was pretty emotional after beating Basha two weeks ago on a last-second field goal. Highland gave Hamilton everything it could handle last week in a close loss, and if his Hawks can knock off Chandler this week, Gilbert might make Nov. 1 as Pete Wahlheim Day.  OK, maybe not, but the Wolves aren’t about to dismiss Highland based on what Highland has done against the other Chandler schools this season, let alone a 5-1 record the past six weeks. However, the Wolves are playing about as well as anyone in the state the past four weeks, and the offense has so many dangerous parts, even a defense as good as Highland is going to have trouble keeping up. The Hawks have shown they’re capable of putting up some points, even if the numbers are never glamorous.  They’re unquestionably going to have to score touchdowns, but the Hawks also can’t get in any kind of a shootout. It’s a thorny juxtaposition, as Chandler looks to enter the postseason as a No. 2 seed on a roll.

Prediction:  Chandler 35, Highland 24
