Cyrus Spruce also had a big day on the ground for the Warriors. He rushed for 164 yards on 10 carries.
Salamanca held a 42-0 lead at halftime, but Cygan was able to find the end zone for Gowanda near the end of the third quarter. Chase Williams tossed the two-point conversion to Kal Hakes-Gaylord.
Cygan ran for 115 yards on 17 carries while Brennan Geiger picked up 46 yards on 12 carries.
Gowanda will look for its first win of the season, next Saturday at JFK.
