The ASU commit -- Perkins is able to connect with Danny Mahan who gets into the end zone and chandler is up 21-10
But Centennial comes back, a short td run by Dedrick Young cuts the lead to 4
And then QB Isaac Steele rolls out and finds Bozton Sanders in the endzone and the Coyotes take a 24-21 lead
But Bryce perkins is a leader -- and he leads this team down the field, he finds Justin Jan for a huge catch and run
Then it’s Perkins again to Jan who is able to break free and score
Back and forth game and Chandler is able to win it 28-24
Saguaro fans dancing in the stands to "Y'all ready for this"
And it’s Kare Lyles who throws to Christian Kirk and Kirk is able to blow past everyone for the 70 yard catch and run 7-0 Sabercats
Chaparrall’s Rene Taito gets hammered by the Saguaro defense. You could hear that hit from the stands
But the Firebirds are determined to get into the end zone and Shawn Paul Brophy with the QB sneak and ties it at 7
Saguaro goes up top for the long bomb and Kare Lyles delivers to Byron Murphy down to the 8-yard line
Then a little wildcat with Kirk at QB and he hands it to Murphy who gets to the corner and makes it 13-7 Saguaro
Saguaro wins 41-14. Christian Kirk finishes with 117 yards rushing and 186 yards receiving and two TDs.
