Going into the game, Maxpreps had both teams ranked in the top 20 in the state with the Huskies coming in at number two.
Following the game 3TV Varsity Zone reporter Warren Trent spoke with Huskies head coach Steve Belles.
"This was almost a must win for us tonight," said Belles. "It's a big win over Chandler, I'll be honest with you, 4-2 and usually we're in a position where we're undefeated."
Next Friday night Hamilton plays host to Desert Vista.
