Tri-Valley had the early lead in the first quarter. After an interception, the Mustangs got on the board after a Mason Mathieu touchdown pass to Levi Hanson. The two-point conversion was good on a pass from Mathieu to Owen Besmer to give the Mustangs an 8-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Canton then put together two big quarters in the middle of the game. The C-Hawks scored two times in the second quarter to take a 14-8 lead at halftime. They also scored the first touchdown of the third quarter and held a 20-8 lead. The Mustangs pulled within six points after a Hanson rushing touchdown in the third quarter at 20-14, but Canton scored the final two touchdowns of the game, one in the third quarter and one in the fourth quarter, for the 34-14 win.
Hanson finished with 11 carries for 36 yards and a touchdown. He also had two catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. Mathieu was 3-8 passing for 79 yards and a touchdown. Besmer had four carries for 18 yards, and Jaden Siemonsma had five carries for 10 yards.
