The Canyon football team narrowly escaped with a 23-20 win over Saugus in a Foothill League game on Friday night.
Saugus missed a 29-yard field goal as time expired. The field goal would have tied the score and sent the game into overtime.
Instead, Canyon won its third game in a row. Canyon quarterback Cade Apsay scored the game-winning touchdown on a keeper in the fourth quarter.
But the Cowboys left enough time on the clock for Saugus to try a field goal at the end of the game. The Centurions missed the kick, wide right.
