OOLOGAH — Coming off a loss last week, the Oologah Mustangs were “flat” Thursday night, but still picked up a 14-0 District 4A-3 high school football victory over Pryor.
Oologah fumbled twice and threw an interception in the opening quarter. The remainder of the half was just as disheveled. Oologah had a failed field goal attempt and a failed fake punt on fourth and eight at the Pryor 36.
“We would have taken a 2-0 win after that first half,” said coach Sonny Schovanec. “We were glad to get a win.”
Junior Brett Swindell led the Mustangs with 115 yards on 26 carries. Fullback John Jarred pushed through the line for 75 yards on 15 carries.
Quarterback Jordan Barrett jump-started the crowd after nearly three complete quarters of silence, throwing a 39- yard pass to Jarred for a touchdown. In the opening series of the fourth quarter, the Mustangs held the ball for six minutes. Barrett capped off the scoring with a two-yard run.
“The kids were out of their routine, with the break and all, it always throws you off to have a Thursday night game,” Schovanec said.
As the offense struggled, Oologah’s defense was solid. The Mustangs allowed only 115 yards of total offense and six first downs.
“I was proud of our defense tonight, it was just a great overall effort.”
Oologah is in fourth place in the district with a 3-2 mark, and is 4-4 overall. Pryor lost its seventh straight and stands 0-5 and 1-7.
