Wolves have interesting grid schedule

By John Miller, 08/4/22 7:49 PM

PRESCOTT – Football season kicks off for the Curley Wolves on Aug. 23 when Prescott heads to Little Rock to face the Bismarck Lions at War Memorial Stadium for the season opener.

This is the second year the Wolves have opened their grid campaign in War Memorial. Last year, the Wolves made two trips, but fell in the title game.

From there, Prescott head to meet another old familiar foe as the Wolves go to Fordyce for a date with the Redbugs on Sept. 9. The team has an open date on Sept. 2.

The Sept.16 game sees Prescott at home for the first time as the Wolves host the Hope Bobcats.

Play in the 5AAA conference opens with Prescott on the road to Gurdon on Sept. 23. The Wolves and Go-Devils have a long history, being rivals both in the conference and when Gurdon drops to AA. There’s no love lost between the teams.

The Wolves will catch a break on Sept. 30 when they host the Junction City Dragons. On Oct. 7, the Wolves remain at home as the Fouke Panthers come to town.

The Oct. 14 game, one Head Coach Brian Glass is looking forward to, will see Prescott on the road to Homer, La. These two teams will meet for the first time, and Glass said it should be a fun game as Homer won the Louisiana Class A State Title last year. He said Homer is always strong and this should be a fun game.

Prescott returns to the friendly confines of Cummings Stadium on Oct. 21 for a date with the Smackover Buckaroos.

There’s a question about Oct. 28. Originally, the Wolves were set to play Parkers Chapel of El Dorado in a conference game, but the Trojans have dropped and will be playing 8-man football this year

Traditionally, the Wolves end the season with a Thursday night game. This year is no exception as the Wolves are scheduled to play the Horatio Lions. However, the game with the Lions hasn’t happened the last two years because of COVID. Two years ago, the game was cancelled by Horatio because of COVID, and last year Prescott was having problems with the virus, but offered to reschedule only to have Horatio decline.

The Wolves will be on the road for five games this year, while being at home only four times – until the playoffs. All games kick off at 7 p.m.
