Ensuing Ozark drive, Peyton Russell airs it out for Sam Clark and noone’s catching Clark, 43-yard pitch and catch puts Ozark in front 7-6.
Six minutes until halftime, Woods sneaks across the goal line, Repmo vaults back in front 14-7 with the two-point conversion.
Less than three minutes later, Daniel Phillips fools and the defense and our camera man, then turns on the jets and takes it to the house, 94-yards down the near sideline, it’s 21-7.
Republic added one more touchdown before halftime on a James Rexroat 46-yard catch to led 27-7 at the half.
And Republic goes to 2-and-0 with a 41-14 victory.
