Road Warriors: Chandler Handles Brophy to Remain Undefeated

PHOENIX — In unfamiliar territory, the Chandler Wolves’ freshman b-team shutout the Brophy Broncos’ freshman b-team by the score of 40-0 at the Brophy Sports Complex Wednesday. With the win, the Wolves stay unbeaten at 4-0 on the season.

“I think Chandler just came out and they out-physicalled us a little bit,” Broncos head coach Chris Agliano said. “They came out physical, they were well-coached and I think that [for] our guys, it just took them a little while to get things going. I don’t think they were used to that kind of speed and that kind of intensity, but we came out with our best effort and it just wasn’t enough tonight.”

Chandler first found the scoreboard when running back Pharaoh Leggette-Williams took the ball 79 yards for a touchdown with five minutes, forty seconds remaining in the first quarter.

Chandler would put up another six points, this time through the air on a 62-yard touchdown pass from quarterback DeAndre Trawick to wide receiver Demetrius Warren. The score became 14-0 in favor of the Wolves.

Late in the first half, the Wolves scored a touchdown with less than a minute remaining as Trawick found Warren again for a second hook up in the end zone. This time, Trawick’s pass went for 45 yards and the score became 21-0 Wolves.

The late score would not be the last Chandler points before the break. With 11.9 seconds left in the second quarter, the Wolves’ defense forced a fumble from Brophy’s starting quarterback Zander Wondrash deep in Bronco territory. The ball bounced into the end zone and was recovered by Chandler for a touchdown. The score at halftime was 27-0 in favor of the Wolves.

In the second half, Peter MacNeil replaced Wondrash at the quarterback position. Agliano said Wondrash had sustained a “mild concussion” on a play late in the first half.

“We made sure to get our protocol going for a concussion,” Agliano said. “The trainer said he was a no-go, so we decided to go to our backup quarterback in the second half.”

In the second half, Chandler found the end zone on two mores occasions, the final of which came late in the fourth quarter when running back Taj Lyons ran in a score from 1-yard out making the score 40-0.

“I told the guys after the game that, despite…los[ing] the last game of the season the way we did, it shouldn’t diminish all of the great work and progress that we made over the course of this season,” Agliano said. “I made sure to tell the guys that, if we look at the film from the beginning of this season and the way they played, there is so much progress that it’s difficult for young men to see that they made over the course of the season.”

Chandler and Brophy last met in freshman football in September 2014, when the Wolves knocked off the Broncos 14-7 in Chandler.

Entering today’s contest, Chandler was an undefeated 3-0. The Wolves will play their final game of the season next Wednesday when they visit the Hamilton Huskies.

Brophy finishes their season with a winning record of 5-4 and now, the offseason begins.

For Wondrash, it’s about getting in the conditioning during the time away from the field.

“I plan to go outside [and] do some conditioning, try to get faster in everything I do and try to increase my throw power and just go to the gym and lift and try to get bigger,” Wondrash said.

Brophy running back Jacob Pelino said the entire team, coaches and staff, are great.

“Our players played really hard and, overall, I wouldn’t have preferred to play on another team,” Pelino said.
