Canton Warriors Win over Wellsboro Green Hornets, 6-0.

By: Wellsboro Gazette | September 28, 1972

 

Sophomore quarterback Steve Riggs sped 70 yards to spark the Canton Warriors to a 6-0 Northern Tier League win over Wellsboro.

Riggs ripped off the long run as he rolled to his left on the Warriors' first series of plays in the final period.

The clever left-handed signal caller cut across to the middle of the field and headed for paydirt, thanks to a key block from halfback Denny McNett.

Winless Wellsboro, now 0-3, threatened on four occasions, taking the ball to the Warriors' three-yard line in the first quarter.

Canton, on its way to its first victory after two defeats, rolled up 206 yards on the ground with fullback Scott Driscoll providing most of the power.
