Magee throws 7 TDs

first_imgPREP FOOTBALL: Aerial assault leads Chadwick to a big win over Linfield Christian. By David Saunders STAFF WRITER Chadwick quarterback Andy Magee didn’t need bulletin-board material to motivate him to continue to rack up touchdowns and yardage this season. But it did make another stellar performance all the sweeter. Magee completed 29 of 37 pass attempts for 423 yards and seven touchdowns in Chadwick’s 60-28 nonleague win over visiting Linfield Christian Saturday. The win gives Chadwick (5-0) an unblemished nonleague record for the second straight season and saddles Linfield Prep with its first loss of the year. “They were definitely calling us out so this win is huge,” Magee said. “This is the most important thing that we’ve done all year.” Magee completed touchdown passes to four different receivers, all of whom tallied more than 85 yards. Tim Watson had seven catches for 103 yards, Josh Goldstein had eight catches for 92 yards and Trevor Neimann had six catches for 87 yards. All three receivers scored twice. George Mavredakis led Chadwick with four catches for 111 yards and a touchdown. Mavredakis’ contributions extended beyond his what he did on offense. He returned four punts for 121 yards and had a 90-yard return called back on a penalty. Each of his returns gave Chadwick first-and-10 inside Linfield Christian territory. “He’s been solid all season,” Chadwick coach Gary Willison said. “He’s been scoring touchdowns on about every third punt return he’s had.” Not to be outdone, Chadwick’s defense did its part to cement the all-around win by recovering five fumbles and limiting Linfield Christian’s Daniel Musquiz to 42 yards on 16 carries. Musquiz averaged more than 158 yards per game going into Saturday’s contest. “We knew they were a physical team that was good at running the ball, but our defense held up strong,” Willison said. Chadwick’s defense even scored a third-quarter touchdown on a 25-yard fumble return by Kevin Martinez to give the team a 48-0 lead. Linfield Christian then put on a scoring showcase of its own, using two defensive touchdowns and a pair of onside kick recoveries to rattle off 28-straight points. Magee responded to the surge by passing for two more scores. “Seeing us come out and scoring quickly was a total momentum killer for them,” Magee said. “That showed them that we’re just as physical as anybody.” david.saunders@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
