PRESCOTT — Nathan Wright scored four touchdowns, Brayden Nelson recovered a fumble off a muffed snap for a score and the Prescott football team scored 41 unanswered points in the first half to beat Mohave 55-0 on Friday night.
It is the second straight victory for the Badgers (2-3, 2-3 Grand Canyon) after they started the fall campaign 0-3.
Wright opened the game’s scoring with touchdown in the first quarter that was set up by Prescott blocked punt, then Cody Leopold made it 14-0 on a 43-yard touchdown run. Wright added another score before the first quarter expired, making it 21-0.
In the second quarter, Nelson recovered a fumble off a bad Mohave snap and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown, his second defensive score in as many weeks after returning a Pic-6 74 yards against Flagstaff in Week 4.
