The Chandler Lions proved to be too much for Prague to handle Friday night as they spoiled the Red Devils’ homecoming party with a 47-7 District 3A-2 win.
Chandler gained 399 total yards while holding the Prague offense hostage with 140 yards.
Chandler wasted little time in determining the outcome. First, the Lions held Prague to a three-and-out on the game’s initial offensive possession before needing just five plays and 2:18 to score on their first try.
Blake Barrier scored the first of his three touchdowns on a 24-yard pass from quarterback Hunter Hudson with 8:06 left in the first quarter to give the Lions the 7-0 advantage.
Prague hung in with the Lions for the remainder of the quarter, but the floodgates would open up on them in the second. Chandler scored 26 points in the second quarter to take a 33-0 lead into intermission.
Mubarak Hisham scored with 11:51 in the second frame on a 49-yard sprint to give Chandler a 13-0 lead. The Lions then scored on their next two offensive possessions and threw in a score on defense for good measure.
Cody Campbell caught a 4-yard pass from Mason Myers at the 7:03 mark to take the count to 19-0 and Myers then ran in the two-pointer to make it 21-0.
Barrier then took his second scoring pass from Hudson 54 yards to the house and followed that up with a 69-yard interception return of a Daelen McClendon pass to set the halftime score at 33-0. Barrier’s second touchdown reception came at the 1:19 mark and was scored on the interception return with just 22 ticks left.
The Lions, in the second half, scored on their first two possessions to bump the lead to 47-0.
Heath Gray scored on a 15-yard run at the 8:59 mark of the third quarter and topped that run with a 50-yarder at the 6:09 mark.
Prague got on the board at the 8:45 mark of the final quarter. R.J. Cook bolted through the middle of the line on his way to a 64-yard touchdown to cap the scoring.
With the win, the Lions improve to 2-0 in district play and 3-2 overall. Prague stumbles to 0-2 in district and 1-4 for the season.
Chandler will host Bristow next Friday while the Red Devils will travel to face Perkins.
