Wolves blank Panthers, 56-0

By Staff, 10/1/21 9:18 PM

PRESCOTT – Eight first half possessions resulted in eight touchdowns for the Wolves Friday night as Prescott shut out theĀ  Fouke Panthers 56-0 at Cummings Stadium.

This gives Prescott a 5-0 record on the season overall and 2-0 in conference play.

Fouke had no answer for anything Prescott did offensively, in the first half. The second half saw the Wolves empty the bench to give as many players as possible some playing time. Penalties proved to be the enemy of the subs.

The Panthers managed two first downs in the game, both coming in the first half. The first came on a penalty and the second came against the second string defense toward the end of the half. Fouke’s longest offensive drive was five plays and 29 yards. Otherwise, it was three and out for the visitors.

Prescott’s longest drive lasted eight plays and ended with a two-yard touchdown run by Branen Bradley.

After the Panthers went three and out, punting to the Prescott 36, the Wolves drove 64-yards in sixh plays with Jaylen Hopson scoring on an 18-yard run. The try for two was good, giving Prescott an 8-0 lead with roughly eight minutes to go in the first.

Another three and out saw Prescott set up shop at the Fouke 40. Jacaylon Zachery took the ball the distance in one play. The point after put Prescott up 15-0 with 5:52 showing.

Fouke’s next possession ended when Rashawn Bell picked off a Panther pass and returned it to the visitor’s 18.

Two plays later Carston Poole hit Omarion Dickens for six. The PAT made it 22-0 with 4:33 to go.

Prescott’s fourth score of the period saw the Wolves start at the home 19. Poole hit Zachery for a gain of 21 to the 40. The Wolves went backwards after a holding penalty moved the ball to the Wolf 42, but it didn’t matter as Hopson found a hole and raced 58-yards for the score. The PAT put the Wolves up 29-0 with 3:12 on the clock.

The fifth scoring drive saw the Wolves start at the Prescott 24. Poole went airborn to Dickens on a 76-yard scoring pass. The PAT was no good, leaving the score 35-0.

Fouke set up at its 20 and made it to the 36 following an unsportsmanlike conduct call against the Wolves as the quarter came to an end. Two plays later Fouke punted to the Prescott 25.

Prescott had its third one-play drive when Poole hit Caleb Harris for the team’s sixth score of the game. The PAT made it 42-0

After another three and out by Fouke, Prescott began at its 22 and needed eight plays to score. Prescott primarily stayed on the ground with Bradley taking in in from two yards out. The PAT made it 49-0.

The final touchdown of the night was a strange one. Prescott took over at its 43. Hopson took the handoff and literally pinballed his way to the endzone as he bounced off several Fouke defenders during the run. The PAT ended scoring at 56-0.

The mercy rule was in effect to start the second half, as it has been in every game the Wolves have played this season. The Wolves began at the Prescott 23 with subs taking over and drove to the Panther 30 before an interception ended the drive.

Fouke started at its 16 and went nowhere, punting to the Wolf 48.

From there the teams traded punts for the remainder of the game.

Prescott will be within the friendly confines again next week as the Wolves entertain the Centerpoint Knights. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
