MacArthur's late TD eliminates Pryor

LAWTON, OK — Korie Robinson scored on runs of 21, five and seven yards, the last with 3:58 to play, to give Lawton MacArthur a 19-15 win over Pryor in the Class 5A quarterfinals Saturday.

Despite being held to a season-low 174 total yards, the Tigers were still bidding for their first trip to the state semifinals in the modern era after a one-yard Brennon Barth touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Barth's run gave Pryor a 15-12 lead with 6:47 to play, but after Robinson's final score the Tigers couldn't replicate their game-winning drive from a week ago against Skiatook.

Barth, who had rushed for 100 yards in each of his last eight games, was held to 70 yards on 30 carries.

The Highlanders (10-2) outgained the Tigers by 183 yards but turned the ball over three times, including twice in the first half. Pryor held a 7-0 lead for much of the game, holding MacArthur scoreless until the 10:09 mark in the third quarter.

The season was head coach Jason Freeman's most successful in his tenure at the Pryor helm, as his Tigers finished with an 8-4 record, a second-place finish in District 5A-4 and a No. 9 final ranking.

Pryor will lose 14 seniors from the 2013 squad.
