PRYOR — Bulldog QB Stephen Upton ran for 75 yards on six carries but was just 3-of-10 passing for 29 yards. His last throw, a Hail Mary, was swatted down by Pryor senior Kegan Yates to end the game.
Fisher Laben kicked three field goals for the Bulldogs, including a 33-yarder as time expired in the first half to cut the Pryor lead to 14-6.
Barth completed three of his five passes, all to Martinez, for 21 yards. McGouldrick, who graced the field at Tiger Stadium for the last time, added 114 yards on 19 totes. The McGouldrick-Barth tandem is the first in Pryor history to run for 1,000 yards apiece in the same season.
Pryor must travel to Lawton to face No. 5 MacArthur (9-2) Friday with a spot in the state semifinals on the line. The Highlanders edged Edmond Deer Creek 34-29 to advance. A win over MacArthur would mean the Tigers' first-ever berth in the state football semifinals.
"Our guys are ready," Freeman said. "They feel like they can beat anybody."
