exact p-value for one-sided test in Proc Freq

I have a 2 x 2 table of binary variables. The sample size is only 21, so I want to get an exact p-value for the likelihood-ratio chi-square. While Fisher's Exact Test provides p values for one-sided tests, there doesn't seem to be an option for getting exact p values for one-sided likelihood ratio chi-square tests. Does anyone know if this is available in PROC FREQ, or do I need to use another procedure?

Here's my code:

Data table;
input n onset hatch;
*where onset=1 for early and hatch=1 for asynchronous;
1 1 0
6 1 1
8 0 0
6 0 1

proc freq data=table;
weight n;
tables onset*hatch / chisq;
exact lrchi;

and here's the output:
