The PAT made it 38-27 with 1:25 remaining and sealed Prescott’s fate.

The Beavers were penalized for taunting after the score and kicked from the 25, until the team was called for delay of game and the ball moved to the 20 Jaydon Riley covered the squib kick at the Glen Rose 43. Prescott drove to the 12, but ended up turning the ball over on downs after four consecutive incomplete passes.

Prescott will be on the road again Friday, Oct. 20 as the Wolves head to Benton Harmony Grove. In all likelihood, the Wolves will end the season second in the conference and could potentially meet Glen Rose in the playoffs, depending on how the bracket are set up.
