  • GameNight: Chandler loses Lucas, game in Las Vegas

    The trip Las Vegas for Chandler might have been more costly than the loss Arizona's top-ranked team sustained Saturday night.The Wolves lost 35-14 to Bishop Gorman at Fertitta Field, but the bigger concern is the health of star Chase Lucas.Lucas appeared to hurt his right knee when he was tackled on a kickoff return, the defender came across his body and Lucas' legs were caught underneath, as he body was torqued to the left.He ended up getting helped off the field, was on the sidelines the rest of the game with crutches.Chandler coach Shaun Aguano said an MRI is scheduled for Monday.On the field the team had trouble getting anything going other than a couple of runs by quarterback Mason Moran, who had scoring runs of 15 and 44 yards.

  • Todd gains valuable experience at Worlds

    Jasmine Todd now knows what it takes.The Chandler and Oregon product has been in Beijing all week competing in the IAAF World Championships in track and field.There has been good and bad, but most importantly Todd has tested herself against the world’s best, held her own and gained experience that will only help downthe  line.Like in Rio in 2016 for the Olympics.Todd helped Team USA finish with a silver medal in the 4x100 relay race as ran the anchor of a team that finished in 41.68 to finish second to Jamaica (41.07).Todd, coming back from her two rounds of the 100 meters earlier in the championships, competed in long jump qualifying on Wednesday. She was unable to advance to the finals but finished with a jump of 21-4.75 (6.52m), the second-best of her career. She will likely return to race the 4x100 meter relay prelims on Friday evening.

  • GameNight: Desert Ridge coughs up big lead, pulls out win

    Both teams lost its starting quarterback and the defense on both sidelines went missing in action at times.But what both Desert Ridge and Liberty found Friday night was some resiliency.In a game that seemingly took longer than the Grand Canyon being created became a game of attrition that ended when Desert Ridge’s kicker Tony Decozio connected on a 29-yard field goal on the game’s final play for a 48-45 win.“Our kids were gassed to the max,” Desert Ridge coach Jeremy Hatcock said. “Everyone on both sides were cramping up. I didn’t know if it was going to ever end. Thankfully we pulled it out.”The fact that the game teetered on the final play was a bit hard to believe considering the Jaguars (1-0) led 45-24 with 10:18 left in the game on Donjae Logan’s 50-yard touchdown run until the Lions (0-2) went on a scoring blitz.Liberty turned to the passing game and Andrew Magri, who came in after starter Kaden Kubaika hurt his collarbone on the second drive of the game.

  • GameNight: Highland overwhelms Mesa

    The Mesa offense only earned four first downs in the first half and the Gilbert Highland offense got into the end zone four times in the first half.While the Jackrabbits stalled and sputtered, the Hawks looked like well-oiled machine. The Hawks moved down the field Friday at will to secure a 34-7 victory at Mesa High School.The Hawks improve to 2-0 after defeating Desert Vista last week and Jackrabbits fall to 1-1 after an emotional win at Red Mountain.Highland gained 390 total yards of offense compared to Mesa’s 80. Mesa coach Scott Hare said Highland won the battle up front.“Highland just beat us to the punch in every aspect,” Hare said. “There’s nothing that they did I thought, other than just out play us.”The Highland offense scored first on a 49-yard pass from senior quarterback Keegan Michelson to a wide open senior tight end Ian McKendrick in the first quarter.

  • GameNight: Perry helps push coach to win over father

    There was a bet on the line between Perry coach Preston Jones and Mesquite coach – Preston’s dad – Jim Jones.Loser had to clean the other’s fishAfter Friday night, it appears Jim is going to have some cleaning to do as Perry topped Mesquite 34-20 at Perry High School Friday night.“I’ve got to clean all the fish,” Jim Jones said. “That was a bet.”Perry (2-0) managed to connect on a couple of big plays early when senior quarterback Gabe Tomaszewski hit senior tight end Jackson O’Hare for a 93-yard score to give the Pumas a 7-0 lead and freshman wide receiver D’shayne James found his brother, junior receiver Nate James, on a 73-yard, double-reverse pass to put Perry up 14-0.“It was crazy,” Nate James said of his touchdown catch from his brother. “We’ve been waiting to connect like that for years.”
