CLAREMORE — By TIM RITTER

Pryor freshman running back Spencer Hinson stood head and shoulders above any Claremore freshmen player and his ‘frame’ paid large dividends for the Tigers in Thursday night’s ninth-grade football game at Lantow Field.

Hinson, a 5-foot-11, 240-pound bruiser, powered the Pryor Tigers to a 28-6 win over the Claremore Zebras.

The loss dropped Claremore to 2-2 on the season.

With Hinson carrying the brunt of the load on offense, the Tigers rushed 42 times for 209 yards and three touchdowns.

Through the air, the Tigers completed 6-of-11 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown.

Pryor got things rolling in the first quarter with a 15-play, 76-yard drive that  was capitalized with a 3-yard touchdown run that put them ahead 7-0.

Moments later, Claremore answered with Kyle Morris scoring on the 2-yard touchdown run. Claremore’s drive was successful thanks to runs of 16 and 25 yards by quarterback Garrett Reynolds.

Pryor, however, rolled off 21 unanswered points, including a 15-yard touchdown pass right before halftime to go ahead 13-6.

Defensively, Brian Varner recovered a fumble in the first half that helped set up Claremore’s only scoring opportunity.

The Claremore rushing attack amassed 130 yards on 24 carries with a touchdown.

Morris led Claremore with 12 carries for 65 yards and the touchdown; while Reynolds added nine carries for 62 yards.

Reynolds also completed 4-of-7 passes for 55 yards and an interception.
