Wolves blank Genoa, 52-0, in homecoming win

By Staff, 10/16/20 9:15 PM

PRESCOTT – Last week Prescott spoiled homecoming for Centerpoint. Friday night, the Wolves celebrated their own homecoming with a 52-0 win over Genoa Central.

For the most part, it was little more than a practice game for the Wolves, 5-0 overall and 3-0 in 5AAA play, as the Dragons were simply overmatched. Prescott ran and passed at will, while Genoa proved it could move the ball, but only threatened to score once near the end of the first half.

Genoa got the ball to start the game, setting up shop at the Dragon 32, ran three plays and punted to Jaylen Hopson at the PrescottĀ  32. Hopson fielded the punt on a hop and raced 68 yards for the first score of the game. The extra point made it 7-0 before fans could get settled.

Genoa started its second offensive possession at its 30, ran three plays and punted again. This time, Prescott didn’t send anyone back and the ball stopped at the Wolf 42.

One play later, Jacobi Nolen fired a laser to Jacaylon Zachery for Prescott’s second touchdown of the game. The PAT made it 14-0 with 7:56 left in the first.

This was pretty much how the game went. Genoa couldn’t find an answer for Prescott’s defense, while Prescott’s offense did what it wanted.

Starting at the Genoa 26, the Dragons made it to the Prescott 44 before turning the ball over on downs with 4:38 showing.

Two quick passes moved the ball to the Genoa 24, where Alex George took over, scoring three plays later from three yards out. The extra point made it 21-0 with 3:28 on the clock.

The ensuing kick was returned to the 41, not that it mattered as Genoa once again turned the ball over on downs at the Dragon 44.

Nolen went to the air and literally found Jeffery Williams all alone in the end zone for six. The point after made it 28-0 with 1:06 remaining.

Genoa returned the kick to the 36, but coughed the ball up two plays later with Prescott recovering at the Dragon 36.

Hopson fumbled, with the Wolves recovering at the 49 as the quarter came to an end. A pass to Zachery gained on to open the second before Prescott fed Genoa a steady diet of George on the next three plays. George scored his second touchdown on a 13-yard run with 10:32 left in the half. The PAT made it 35-0 and the Wolves began substituting on defense.

Starting at its 23, the Dragons made it to the Prescott 46 before punting to the 17.

Nolen missed connection with Hopson on first down, but not on second as Hopson found a gap and sprinted for an 83-yard touchdown. The extra point made it 42-0 with 6:14 to go.

Genoa bobbled the kick, but managed to return it to the 20. However, it was three and out for the Dragons with the punt only getting to the Genoa 42.

The Wolves drove to the Genoa nine where the drive stalled. This, though, didn’t stop Prescott from scoring at Luis Rabadan booted a 31-yard field goal to make it 45-0 with 3:20 showing.

Genoa returned the kick to the 29 and drove to Prescott’s four as the buzzer sounded ending the first half. However, the Dragons had a chance to score, but didn’t bother using their time outs to stop the clock, or ever get in any rush.

The first half took roughly an hour to complete. The second half took less as the mercy rule was in effect for the remainder of the game.

Prescott got the ball to start the third quarter, fielding a pooch kick at the 34. With nothing but subs in the game, the Wolves drove 66-yards in seven plays with Carston Poole finding Tyler Morrow in the end zone for the final score of the contest. The PAT made it 52-0.

Genoa started at its 26, ran three plays and punted to the Wolf 43.

Prescott ran two plays, getting to the 49 as the quarter expired. The final 12 minutes began with the Wolves driving to the Genoa 41 before punting with the ball sailing into the end zone.

Genoa’s final possession saw the Dragons get to the 37 before punting to the Prescott 24.

The Wolves ran four plays to end the game.

Prescott will be on the road next week as the Wolves have what should be little more than another practice game against the Bismarck Lions. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
