Morning Sports Report - November 7, 2013

High school football teams across the Ozarks continued their march toward St. Louis and the state championships Wednesday night. Some teams were getting their first taste of playoff football because they had first round byes.
One of those teams, the 9-and-0 Kickapoo Chiefs who were hosting 5-and-5 Ozark in Class 5 District 5.
And Ozark would go on top early, with a 27 yard field goal by Hudson Speer and it's 3-0, Tigers.
But Kickapoo would answer with two touchdowns in two minutes, the second on fourth and goal, Anthony Cooper to Jamar-Iquen Green with a nine yard touchdown pass - it's 14-3, Chiefs.
Ozark threatening fourth and goal from the one, and Kickapoo with a defensive stand, Caleb Essick tries to take it in on the left side, but Kelton Reeves is there for the stop.
And Kickapoo goes onto win 45-16.

Kickapoo will face either Nixa or Branson.
The other side of that Class 5 bracket featured 5-and-5 Branson at 8-and-1 Nixa.
And Nixa strikes first, Dawson Mills the quarterback keeps on the misdirection, down the far sideline, 50 plus yards for the touchdown and it's 7-0, Eagles.
Mills using his arm as well, here he hits Tristan Ridenour with this 25-yard touchdown pass, it's 14-0.
Nixa with some special teams work, the punt is downed at the one yard line.
And the Eagles cash that in when Nixa forces the Branson fumble in the endzone and Zahn Rah recovers for the touchdown, it's 21-0. 
And Nixa wins 49-13.
The game between Nixa and Kickapoo will be Monday night at Kickapoo.

In Class 4 District 7, the 10-and-0 Bolivar Liberators face 5-and-5 Grandview.
And Bolivar would collect a big play early in the first quarter, Rafe Peavey keeps on the option, takes it up the midddle, to the near sideline, and he gets run out of bounds at the two.
Peavey plows it in on the next play, and it's 7-0,  Liberators.
But Grandview takes it back the other way, and the Bulldogs' Ryeown Winters scores from five yards out and it's 7-7.       
Bolivar would retake the lead on its next possession, the handoff to Drew Legan, the senior takes it around the right end, and scores from 13 yards out and it's 14-7, Bolivar.      
And Bolivar wins 42-14.
The Liberators play Pleasant Hills Central in the next round on Monday.
