Canyon 27, Burroughs 24--Chris Escobar's four-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter completed a comeback from a 24-7 deficit for the Cowboys at Burroughs.

Burroughs opened the game with a 41-yard kickoff return by Mike Holmes to set up a two-play, 45-yard drive that ended with a 25-yard touchdown run by Mike Jara.

After Jimmy Perry pulled Canyon (6-2, 3-0) even at 7-7 with a six-yard scoring run, Holmes returned the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown and a 14-7 Indian lead in the first quarter.

Joe Kroells connected with Brian Criscuolo for a 42-yard scoring pass play to give Burroughs a 24-7 lead with 4:41 remaining in the first half.

Perry scored his second touchdown, an eight-yard run, and Jason McKeon hooked up with Derwin Maxwell for a 23-yard scoring pass play to cut Canyon's deficit to 24-20 late in the first half.

McKeon led Canyon with 90 yards rushing in 20 carries. Perry and Chris Escobar added 76 and 40 yards, respectively, for a total of 206 yards in 43 carries.
