Wharton struck first, even before lightning postponed the game for an hour. Wildcats quarterback Ryan Hatter scored on a sneak to cap an eight-minute opening drive for a 7-0 lead. As inclement weather set in, Wharton's Basim Sead blocked a punt at the 20 and took it in for a touchdown and a 13-point cushion.
As play resumed, Roger Madrazo got Chamberlain on the board with a 3-yard TD run.
After the teams traded touchdowns in the second quarter, Shane McEwen, who rushed for 123 yards on the night, sealed the win for Wharton with a touchdown in the fourth.
"(McEwen) is the heartbeat of our offense. He works hard, he hits the holes, and Hatter, on the other hand, looks like he's going to be a pretty good quarterback," Wharton coach David Mitchell said.
