Early deficit dooms Canton in loss to Seiling
Last Friday, the Tigers welcomed the Seiling Wildcats to town for their first home game of the district schedule. Despite the Wildcats losing their starting quarterback to injury in the second quarter, Canton just could not stifle their opponents’ rushing attack, and fell to Seiling 48-20.
The loss puts Canton at 0-2 in the district heading into their bye week, with two games left on the schedule moving forward. It was a missed opportunity to secure that ever-important first win that usually guarantees a playoff berth in their five-team district.
The Tigers found themselves in an early hole when Seiling scored on a pair of early drives to go up 14-0 in the first quarter, and when the Wildcats scored on the opening play of the third quarter to go up 22-0, it seemed as if this wouldn’t be Canton’s night.
