Prescott Runs Free On Greenland

Posted: November 24, 2012 at 5 a.m.

Calvin Jones, Greenland running back, is brought down Friday by Prescott defender Mark Johnson in the first half of the state playoff game in Greenland.

Greenland football coach Lee Larkan made no secret during Thanksgiving week he was concerned about Prescott’s speed.



Why The Curley Wolves Won

Prescott scored 27 points in the second quarter to turn a close game in the first quarter into a rout. The Curley Wolves extended their lead to 49-0 in the third quarter, capitalizing on Greenland’s turnovers and relying on their high-powered passing game.

Why The Pirates Lost

Greenland trailed only 7-0 after the first quarter, but it failed to score until the second half when Prescott led by 49 points and the mercy rule was already in effect. Quarterback Darian Froud and running back Calvin Giddens had difficult nights against Prescott’s fast defense.
