Canutillo senior quarterback Devin Granados tossed three touchdowns, ran for two more, and junior wide receiver L.J. Martin caught two touchdown passes as the Canutillo Eagles rolled against the Chapin Huskies by a score of 34 to 13 at Irvin High School Tony Shaw Field.

Canutillo struck again for the third time in the first half, a 16-yard TD reception by Martin with 4:22 remaining in the second quarter.
The Huskies defense managed to slow the Eagles attack in the second half, but Canutillo struck again halfway through the third quarter on a 50 yard touchdown catch by junior wide receiver Lorenzo Areola with 6:15 remaining, giving the Eagles a comfortable 28-0 lead.
On the ensuing drive, Chapin would find the end zone for the first time in the contest on a 36 yard touchdown toss from sophomore quarterback Hunter Standerfer to Timothy Pastran with 5:03 remaining in the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter, the Eagles’ rushing attack played keep away from the Chapin offense and ate up the clock, leaving the Huskies with very little time to mount a counterattack.
