By Staff, 10/4/19 9:24 PM

PRESCOTT – Friday’s homecoming game wasn’t much of a contest for the Curley Wolves as Prescott posted a 56-7 win over the hapless and helpless Bismarck Lions.

Homecoming festivities were held prior to the game, with the queen and her court introduced to the audience. Once the game began, it was all downhill for the Lions.

Prescott put 35 points on the board in the first quarter, with no drive taking more than six plays.

Bismarck took the opening kick and set up shop at its 26. Three plays later the Lions punted to midfield where Prescott took over.

Jacobi Nolen took to the air, finding Jacalyn Zach3ry for six. The point after made it 7-0 before the fans settled in their seats.

The Wolves got nasty and tried an onside kick, recovering t the Lion 48 with 8:59 showing. Nolen scrambled to the 40, missed connection with Derriun Thompson on second down, but found Jeffery Williams who battled to the 30. Alex George rambled to the 13. Two plays later Nolen found Jaylon Hopson for six. The PAT made it 14-0 with 7:36 left in the first.

Bismarck returned the ensuing kick to its 34, ran three plays and gained three yards. For some reason the Lions went for it on fourth and seven, going nowhere and turning the ball over on downs at the Lion 38.

Penalties moved the Wolves back to the 49 before Nolen hit a wide open Thompson for the third score of the frame. The extra point made it 21-0 with 1:56 to go.

Bismarck fumbled the kick at its 30 with the Wolves recovering. Williams took over under center and failed to connect with Nolen on first down. On the next play, he connected with Zachery, who made it to the 22 before being brought down. Williams found Nolen on a screen to the nine and George capped the drive going in untouched. The PAT made it 35-0 and the Wolves had barely broke a sweat.

Bismarck returned the kick to the 36, gained two yards in two plays and were hit with a motion call to end the first. Things didn’t improve for the Lions as the second opened with an incomplete pass. The punt on fourth down took a Prescott bounce and was down at the Bismarck 47.

It took four plays before George scored on a 35-yard run with 10:50 left in the half. The PAT made it 42-0 and the Wolves began to substitute.

Bismarck started at its 36,ran three plays and punted to the Prescott 31.

The Lions were hit with an offside call, moving the ball to the 36. Nolen, back at quarterback, connected with Zachery, who sprinted 64-yards for Prescott’s final touchdown of the half. The PAT made it 49-0.

The Bismarck receiver attempted to field the ball at the five, mishandled it with the ball going into the end zone. He managed to pick it up and get to the nine. The Lions went nowhere on the first two plays, but saw the Wolf defense fall asleep on third down and rambled to the Prescott 11 before being brought down. This was the first of three times Bismarck ventured into Prescott’s Red Zone. The Lions were unable to move the ball in four plays, turning it over on downs with 6:30 left in the half.

Prescott, substituting heavily, was unable to gain a first down and punted to the Lion 40 with 4:00 left.

It was three and out for the Lions, with the punt being downed at the Prescott 21. The Wolves pretty much ran out the clock, going into the locker room with a 49-0 lead and the knowledge the second half would be played under the mercy rule.

The Lions used a bit of trickery of their own with an onside kick to open the second half, recovering at the Prescott 47. Bismarck drove to the Prescott four before going backwards and turning the ball over on downs at the Wolf seven.

The Wolves began the team’s longest drive of the game, mostly on the legs of Bayliss Price carrying 10 times on the 12-play, 93-yard drive. The PAT made it 56-0.

Bismarck took over at its 38 and managed to drive 62-yards in nine plays. The point after ended scoring.

Prescott goes to 3-2 on the season and 2-0 in 5AAA play.
