 Who would think that a team with a 4-7 football record could be considered dangerous? Well, Sylmar better not take 4-7 Chatsworth lightly on Friday night in a City Section Division II quarterfinal playoff game, because the Chancellors have knocked off University and Granada Hills in their last two games. Coach Andrew Kim has found a formula to success, but Sylmar is a formidable opponent with the combination of quarterback Clarence Williams and running back Marcus Gandy. Gandy, a sophomore, has had runs of 86, 72 and 67 yards since he became eligible at midseason.
