Crawford County (1-0) played host this year, returning the favor. Unfortunately for the Musketeers, the Wolfpack returned the favor, with a convincing 39-13 win Friday night.

    “They’ve got a great quarterback,” said Musketeers’ coach Eric Robertson of Allen. “I think he dropped one pass tonight. The kid’s got a rifle.”
