Game preview: Chandler at Star Spencer
Chandler (0-3) at Star Spencer (0-3)
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Where: Twidwell Stadium
Last week: Chandler lost to a resurgent Harrah team, 35-12. Star had one of its best showings of the year in a 27-18 loss to Douglass.
Why Chandler could win: The Lions have built a strong tradition in recent years, and they’ve always got talent. This year’s team is looking for answers after the 0-3 start in which it has scored 8.0 points per game, but the fresh start of district play should energize them.
Why Star could win: The Bobcats, too, will be pumped for the new beginning of district play. They seem to be getting things together, especially on the offensive side of the ball, the last couple weeks, so look for more progress there. Carlos Hutson has provided a spark in a variety of ways on offense lately.
Key matchup: Star RBs vs. Chandler defensive front seven. The run game is key to helping take pressure off young QB Darion Bogus, and the Lions have struggled against the run at times so far. If the Bobcats can move it on the ground, they should be able to control the game.
The pick: Star 24, Chandler 20. The ugly start makes it seem like this Star Spencer team had a horrible fall-off from last year. They’re definitely down, but they’re going to be around to challenge for the title in this district.
