Chandler High surprises Xavier soccer

Xavier Prep’s soccer team had won two in a row entering Friday night’s game against host Chandler High, and Chandler had lost four straight.

It didn’t matter, as Chandler scored a goal in each half and happily ended its streak with a surprising 2-0 victory.

Xavier dropped to 8-4-1, while Chandler improved to 4-6-3.

The Gators have two regular-season games remaining – at home on Tuesday (Jan. 29) against Gilbert Perry and Feb. 1 on the road against Chandler Hamilton.
