After Guyett scored the decisive TD on a 33-yard run, teammate Joe Blahowicz intercepted a Springville pass with 31 seconds left to preserve the win for the Bulldogs (1-1).
The Griffins (0-2) got a big effort from Jason Shelley, who ran for three TDs.

Cole Armelli's only carry was a 48-yard TD for Southwestern.
Fredonia 23, East Aurora 6: The Hillbillies improved to 2-0 with the help of 13 carries for 148 yards and two TDs from Frankie Lopez, who scored on runs of 70 and 44 yards.
