The Warriors entered with hopes to build on the previous week's victory over Towanda, but Sayre came out very strong, jumped to a big lead and the Warriors were not able to catch up.
Before the game began, public address announcer Darryl Jannone noted it was Patriots Day and asked for a round of applause for local firefighters, police and ambulance personnel, as well as current and former military personnel.
The Warriors kicked off and on the second play from scrimmage, Sayre's Tyler Belles tore off a 73-yard touchdown run, and topped it with a two-point conversion run. Sayre led 8-0 at the 11:11 mark of the first period.
Canton's Landon Brown had a nice return of the subsequent kickoff but the Warriors were thrown for a four-yard loss on their first play, and after an incomplete pass just beyond the reach of the receiver, and a false start penalty, the Warriors faced a 3rd down and 19. Sayre intercepted a Canton pass and began a new set of downs on the Warrior 31. Sayre advanced the ball but Canton stopped the Redskins on a 4th and 18. The Warriors mounted a drive but the drive stalled and the Warriors went into punt formation, but the snap was fumbled and Sayre recovered at the 32 with 4:09 left in the period. Six running plays later Garrett Weaver ran the ball in for a touchdown from the seven yard line. Tyler Belles carried in for his second two-point conversion and Sayre led 16-0 at the 1:24 mark.
Sayre scored their third touchdown at the 10:23 mark of the second period, on a drive capped by a 4-yard run by Jacob Goodrich. Belles again ran it in for two points and Sayre led 24-0.
The teams traded possessions and the Warriors took over on the 42-yard line at the 5:25 mark. Bryce Cole tore off a long gain for a first down at the 33, and after Sayre was penalized for an illegal substitution, Canton had 1st and 5 on the 28. After an incomplete pass, Ridge Moore swung a pass to Gavin Hoffman, who broke in the clear and took it to paydirt. Ridge Moore and Bryce Cole hooked up for a two-point conversion and Canton trailed 24-8 at the 4:45 mark.
The fans had a positive feeling but that quickly was disappointed as Sayre's quarterback tossed a lateral to Marshall Felt, who picked it up on a bounce, secured the ball and took off down the sideline, avoiding tackles all the way to the end zone. Another two-point conversion run made it 32-8 with 3:45 to play in the half.
The Warriors picked up a first down but a false start penalty and a quarterback sack were costly, but Canton overcame the mistakes and picked up a first down with twenty-six second left in the half. Three incomplete passes were followed by a pass for a short gain and time expired.
Sayre added a field goal in the third period and one last touchdown in the fourth on an run by Matthew Ingrassia at the 7:06 mark. The two-point conversion made the final score 42-8.
Gavin Hoffman gained 57 yards on 14 carries for Canton.
