PRESCOTT – A breakdown in Prescott’s pass defense wound up bringing the Wolves’ season to an end as McGehee posted a 44-39 win Friday night in the AAA state quarterfinals.
In many ways, it was a strange game. Neither defense could stop the opposing offense in the first half, which saw 55 points put up and Prescott on the wrong end of a 30-25 score at the break. The second half was primarily defensive as neither offense could get on track. Both teams put 14 on the board as the Owls scored twice in the final 12 minutes. Actually, both touchdowns came in the final 1:47 of the contest.
Both squads had problems hanging onto the ball and turned it over to the other team and, until the end, there were relatively few penalties in the game.
Prescott ended is year with a 10-1 overall record.
