PRESCOTT, Ark.—The Curley Wolves took a 22-8 halftime lead over the Mohawks, and held them to 10 second half points, while scoring eight of their own in the third quarter.

Prescott overcame two turnovers, and sluggish defensive play, as it allowed the Mohawks 319 yards rushing, while only putting up 271 yards of total yards itself, but were still able to earn the victory.
