The crowd in downtown Prescott started gathering early Wednesday evening some 20 minutes before parade time with a slight breeze in the air and above average temperatures for early October. Lining both sides of 2nd and Elm Streets, young and old alike anticipated the latest Prescott High School Homecoming Parade complete with its court of homecoming beauties and candy treats thrown from cars.
The state acclaimed Prescott High School Marching Band kicked off the festivities, marching and playing as they lead a short motorcade of cars, each with its own beauty queen up top.  A Prescott firetruck sounded its horns carrying a band of Prescott cheerleaders.
Such was the old-fashioned pomp and pageantry of the Prescott Homecoming parade, which eventually saw hundreds along the route, many of whom once attended Prescott High School and many youngsters, who will eventually end up there.
And then, 48 hours later, the top-ranked defending Class 3A state champion Prescott Curley Wolves showcased another impressive and dominating performance as they shut out the Horatio Lions 47-0 to put a big explanation point to end Homecoming Week with the game itself at Eddie Jackson Field at Cummins Stadium.
For the third consecutive week, the Curley Wolves' defense held an opponent scoreless in shut out victories, now 3-0 in conference, and 6-0 overall, to extend their winning-streak to 21 consecutive wins since the start of their 2016 championship season.
Prescott Head Coach Tommy Poole was very pleased by his Curley Wolves performances throughout the league season. Poole felt the team's execution showcased well and proud how his troops fought to come out victorious.
Despite homecoming activities that would be a distraction to the team, Poole said
"I felt like we played well Friday night. We executed well and got off to a fast start. Our defense have been playing good football. We have to play defense well and look to build off it each week to get better. Still got room for some improvement.”
The Horatio Lions were a much improved team from last year, but Poole knew if his Curley Wolves stuck to the game plan and play assignment football by staying focused to execute, the results would turn out to their favor. Of course, the Curley Wolves had no problem taking care of business for all four quarters of football.
At the beginning of the season, Poole put a lot of emphasis on the special teams unit and thus far they've executed well in all previous Prescott victories. The Curley Wolves made points on the board against Horatio by a blocked punt and recovered in the end zone for a touchdown by Colton Johnson.  
The Curley Wolves made seven trips into the end zone offensively against Horatio. On the ground, MyKal Burns and Thomas Muldrew each scored a pair of touchdowns for Prescott. Burns scored on a seven-yard and 21-yard touchdown runs. Muldrew had a six-yard and two-yard touchdown runs scored. Isaiah Wayne and Larry Peters both had touchdown runs against Horatio inside the five-yard line.
The Lions fall to 1-2 in conference, 3-3 overall. The Curley Wolves continue to hold the No. 1 overall ranking for the seventh consecutive week in the state for Class 3A (Associated Press Arkansas Prep Poll, Hooten's Arkansas Football Class 3A rankings, Arkansas Democrat Prep Poll and Max Prep Poll Rankings).
