Prescott High football team remains winless after 34-7 loss to Somerset

The Prescott High School football team is still in search of its first win for the 2016 season as Somerset picked up its first win by a 34-7 margin Friday at Laney Field, the first home game for PHS this season.

Somerset, 1-4 overall, 1-2 in the Middle Border Conference, scored the games first 20 points in the first half by methodically marching down the field with its wishbone offense led by quarterback Nick Maitrejean. He scored on a one-yard touchdown run and the Spartans got seven-yard TD run from back Jack Peterson and a three-yard scoring run from fullback Justin Rivard.

However, Prescott did have some momentum late in the first half and starting the second half. PHS got its first touchdown pass of the season when Luke Murphy connected with Joe Roosen on a 13-yard TD pass just before halftime. The Cardinals attempted an onside kick to start the second half and failed to recover it. But they they stopped Somerset's opening drive of the second half and had the ball in good field position.

Yet they were unable to drive the ball in for another TD for the rest of the game and Maitrejean responded by personnally leading a scoring drive (all the runs were from him) capped off by a three-yard TD. He also scored on a 23-yard run in the fourth quarter.

PHS will try to get win one next Friday in its Homecoming game vs. New Richmond.
