Tylor Belles rushed for 221 yards to surpass the 1,000-yard mark, leading the Redskins to their fifth straight win and clinch a share of the small school title.

Bucktail punted on their first possession. Sayre starting at the 24-yard line, with Belles and Matt Ingrassia running the ball, Belles went in from 38 yards out and James Esposito tacked on the extra point to make the score 7-0.

Bucktail failed on fourth down, their third possession. Sayre took over at midfield and four plays later Belles scored his second touchdown, rumbling 41 yards at the end of the first quarter. Esposito added the extra point, making the score 14-0.

The Bucks' next possession was looking promising but Jake Goodrich intercepted the pass and returned it 51 yards to the 24-yard line. Three plays later Goodrich ran in from five yards. Esposito added the extra point to make the score 21-0.

The Bucktail punt rested at the three-yard line and Belles took the handoff and raced 97 yards down the sideline for his third score of the night. Esposito added the extra point to extend the lead to 28-0.

Nate Garrity ran in from 12-yards out to start the third quarter; Esposito added the extra point to make the score 35-0.

The Bucks finally cracked the scoreboard with a 13-play, 66-yard drive with Mike Casper scoring on a three-yard QB keeper; Devin Serafini ran in the two-point conversion making the score 35-8.

Sayre closed out the scoring with a heavy dose of Ingrassia, going 61 yards on eight plays, Esposito added the extra point, making the final 42-8.

Coach Satterly was pleased on how well the offensive line and Matt blocked for Belles. The kids are trying to make history for the program but still have three weeks left in the season.

Sayre travels to Canton for a Saturday game next week.
