WYALUSING - The Sayre Redskins ran all over the hosting Wyalusing Rams on Friday evening on their way to a 27 to 7 victory. The Redskins used the strength of their ground game as four Redskins combined for 307 yards on the ground and all four of the Redskins touchdowns. Jesse Dagutis of Sayre lead the ground efforts with 103 yards via the run.

Sayre would open the wound of the hosting Rams on their very first drive on the evening as Kyle Post took the handoff 43 yards and ended his journey in the end zone. James Herbst would fail to convert on the extra point. On Wyalusing's next drive, quarterback Aaron Johnson, tossed a pass towards the sidelines. The ball would then be intercepted by Jesse Dagutis. Following the interception, Alex Lyons would end the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run, putting the Redskins up 13 to nothing following Herbst's successful extra point. Wyalusing would respond quick as Dylan Otis capped off their next drive with a 1-yard touchdown run. Dylan Otis would then tack on the extra point.

Sayre would yet again find the end zone on the strength of the running game as Jesse Dagutis received the handoff on the outside and ran down the sideline for 42 yards and 6 points. Herbst would then miss the extra point. The Redskins then tossed in some trickery as they kicked the kickoff onsides and recovered the ball which was deflected off a Wyalusing player. On the drive following the onsides kick; it only took the Redskins two plays to score as Albert Bodolus took a handoff 44 yards into the end zone. The redskins would then attempt the two point conversion, which was successful as Jesse Dagutis ran the ball in. Sayre entered halftime up 27 to 7.

The score was decided in the first half as the second half showed no scoring. The ball would change positions on multiple occasions. Brad Felt of Sayre fumbled the ball in the third as Dan Frankenfield of Wyalusing recovered. Aaron Johnson would then throw an interception on the next drive for the Rams as Kyle Post picked the ball off on their own 1-yard line. Neither team would capitalize on the opposing team's mistake.

Aaron Johnson finished the game 3-9 passing for 40 yards. Frankenfield had another strong game on the field as he ran the ball 17 times for 100 yards. Along with Jesse Dagutis's 103 yards rushing, which only took him 10 carries, Alex Lyons ran the ball 14 times for 60 yards, Kyle Post ran the ball 7 times for 81 yards, and Albert Bodolus ran the ball 11 times for 63 yards.
