GLEN ROSE - Friday the 13th haunted defending Class 3A state champion Prescott Curley Wolves as they fell on the road against the Glen Rose Beavers 37-27. This was the first loss for the Curley Wolves since the postseason in 2015 and ended a 21 game winning-streak that currently stands the longest consecutive victories for their football program.
The upset loss to Glen Rose, a conference foe, also puts Prescott in second place behind the Beavers in the Class 3A-5 Conference standings. Glen Rose is now 4-0 in the conference, while Prescott drops to 3-1. Both the Beavers and Curley Wolves have 6-1 overall records.
Prescott football head coach Tommy Poole knew this would be a tough game and place to win since the Curley Wolves edged Glen Rose by three points last season at Cummins Stadium 20-17.
Poole didn't feel his Curley Wolves came out with the same mentality as have all season. With some mishaps, turnovers and a few missed assignments played a major factor into the Curley Wolves play against Glen Rose.
"We just didn't do what we had to do to win. I think we shot ourselves in the foot and turned over the ball five times and just can't turnover the ball against a good team. Give Glen Rose credit, they played extremely well. I just think we didn't come ready to play and not in good football shape. I take responsibility and the blame for that," Poole said.
"The kids were hurt a little bit and disappointed to come up short in a big game like that. We will load back up and take it one game at a time. We had our chances, just got to execute and can't blow assignments. We just got to regroup and get ready to go again," Poole said.
The game displayed an back and forth scoring effort, but the Beavers would make the big necessary plays down the stretch to secure the win.
In opening quarter action, the Beavers struck first defensively with a pick-6 by Dalen Baldwin a the 7:28 mark on the interception return for the touchdown and PAT good to give Glen Rose the 7-0 advantage. The Curley Wolves answered back at the 4:30 mark defensively as Ryan Johnson recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown, but the PAT was no good and Glen Rose held the slight lead over Prescott 7-6 to end first period action.
In the second, Glen Rose increased their lead off a 7-yard touchdown run by Jarrod Rogers and PAT good by Colby Steed put the Beavers ahead of Prescott 14-6 at the 7:13 mark. Prescott would fall short to score for the remaining time left to play in the second quarter and trailed Glen Rose at the halftime break.
In the third quarter, Prescott's Thomas Muldrew pounded into the end zone on a 5-yard touchdown run at the 10:05 mark. Muldrew completed a pass to Kadarius Pearson on the reception for the 2-point conversion and tied the game at 14-14. Glen Rose answered back off a 30-yard touchdown run by Jay'Shawn Cox with PAT good to give the Beavers a 21-14 lead at the 5:54 mark.
With under a minute to play in the third quarter, Muldrew launched a 57 yard touchdown pass reception to Cameron Cox and PAT good by Kade Honea knotted the game at 21-21 going into the fourth quarter.
For the first seven minutes of play in the fourth quarter, the game was scoreless until Glen Rose's Colby Steed made a 24-yard field goal attempt to put the Beavers up 24-21 at the 5:32 mark. The Curley Wolves would take their first lead of the game at the 4:44 mark off a 13-yard touchdown run by My'Kal Burns, but the 2-point conversion was no good with Prescott leading the Beavers 27-24.
The Beavers would come up big for the remaining four minutes to play with quarterback Rogers completing a 28-yard touchdown pass reception to Adam Day and PAT good gave Glen Rose a 31-27 lead.
Then, the Beavers' defense secure the win at the 1:25 mark with a pick-6 from Noah Ellis on the touchdown interception for 33-yards and PAT no good sealed the 10-point victory for Glen Rose to remain unbeaten in 5-3A Conference standings at 4-0, 6-1 overall. Prescott falls to 3-1 in conference and 6-1 overall.
