The Saints’ first-team offense retired for the night after Kiehl Frazier’s fifth touchdown pass with 5:44 left in the first half extendedthe lead to 41-0. It was 44-0 at halftime.
“If you can’t drive the ball and make some first downs, and they get it back and they’re very adept at scoring, it’s going to get very ugly,” Prairie Grove Coach Danny Abshier said. “It happened to us tonight.”
Frazier was 11 of 18 for 297 yards, leading the Saints on touchdown drives of 61, 28, 52, 53, 53 and 80 yards.
