Collinsville topples Pryor, 20-19


Despite a huge night from sophomore Anthony Martinez, Pryor could not overcome three costly turnovers and succumbed to Collinsville 20-19 Friday with a shot at an outright district title on the line.
Martinez scored on a 54-yard touchdown run on Pryor’s opening drive to give the Tigers a 7-0 lead and threw a 79-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Ogg in the fourth quarter to help the Tigers reclaim the lead at 19-14, but Collinsville’s Zane McElroy scored on a one-yard keeper with 6:14 to play to shut the door.
Pryor and Collinsville are now tied for first place in the district with one district loss apiece, but the win gives Collinsville a head-to-head tiebreaker over the Tigers.
Pryor (6-3, 5-1 District 5A-4) can still clinch a home playoff game with a win over East Central Friday. A Pryor win coupled with a Tahlequah upset of Collinsville Friday would give the Tigers their first district title since 2011 and their second since 1982.
Turnovers ruined the night for the Tigers. Pryor fumbled the ball away deep in Cardinal territory late in the second quarter after Brennon Barth’s first pass was intercepted and returned 13 yards for a touchdown by Cardinal defensive back TJ Johnson. Pryor almost gave the ball away just before halftime, but running back Matt McGouldrick recovered the dangerous fumble on the Tiger 10-yard-line.
Collinsville (7-2, 5-1 5A-4) took control of the district race thanks to a big night from junior  signal-caller McElroy. McElroy passed for 152 yards, including a 43-yard bomb to Dylan Cook in the third quarter to give the Cardinals their first lead, 14-13.
Collinsville went 55 yards on a drive that spanned the third and fourth quarters, but Sergio Perez’ 27-yard field goal attempt was wide right with 10:24 to go. Pryor assumed possession at its own 20, but two run plays netted just a yard to set up a third-and-9.
