Football Game Preview: Chandler vs. Mountain Pointe

This week, Mountain Pointe (1-1) faces off against Chandler (2-1) on Friday at 7:00 PM. These are two of the top teams in the nation (Chandler is ranked 30th, Mountain Pointe 138th), so it should shape up to be an exciting match.

Mountain Pointe lost to Chaminade 39 – 25 last week. The offensive line was plagued by an aggressive Chaminade defense that sacked the quarterback seven times.

Meanwhile, Chandler battled it out with Pinnacle last week for a well-earned 35 – 28 overtime win. With four TDs, senior running back Drake Anderson was a significant factor in the success. Anderson has been the ringleader for Chandler this season two times now.

The last time they met, Chandler hopped past Mountain Pointe 36 – 17. Will Mountain Pointe avenge its loss? We’ll find out soon enough.
