Football: Chamberlain 13, Wharton 10

TAMPA — The Chamberlain passing combination of Thaddeus Baxley and William Whiteside clicked and the defense did just enough as the Chiefs (1-1) held on to top Wharton (0-2).

Behind a solid running attack and the timely passing combo of Baxley and Whiteside, the Chiefs moved the ball 90 yards over nine minutes in the first half. Chamberlain capped the drive with a 2-yard run by Baxley.

In the second half, after getting on the board with a field goal, wideout Marvin Murray took a reverse to the right, fumbled, scooped it up and outraced the Chamberlain defense down the right sideline for a 10-yard touchdown. But Baxley and Whiteside hooked up for a 26-yard TD to put the Chiefs ahead 13-10 in the fourth.

Neil MacInnes' 33-yard field goal attempt was no good with one minute left for Wharton.
