That's as close as the Sabres got.

Moore's final touchdown of the night - and his third in the third quarter alone - put Wyandotte back up on top by double figures.

From there, it was the McKinzy brothers who put the Sabres away.

Xavier McKinzy scored on a four-yard touchdown run to increase Wyandotte's lead to 37-20. With just three minutes left in the game, it was Dimonic McKinzy who put the icing on the cake - a seven-yard touchdown run to push Wyandotte's lead to 44-20.

That's how the score would end.

In the loss, Williams was 9-of-17 for 194 yards and three touchdowns, but did throw two interceptions. Daniels had over 100 receiving yards and two touchdowns, while Tripp had 75 receiving yards on just two catches.

Wyandotte quarterback Dimonic McKinzy continued his impressive play, rushing for 102 yards on 12 carries, along with passing for 214 yards through the air.

Xavier McKinzy added 79 yards on the ground for the Bulldogs.
