On the other side of the ball, Brandywine’s defense limited the Bucks to just 155 yards of total offense, including 110 on the ground.
Buchanan’s touchdowns came on a Aiden Kile 30-yard run and Isaiah Rimpson’s 64-yard run.
Brandywine finished the night with three interceptions, including a pair by Gabriel Gouin, including one he returned 25 yards for a touchdown.
The other Bobcat scores came on a 36-yard Bryce McLane pass to Shane Brown and a 40 yard Gouin run.
