Blamey added touchdown runs of 11 and 24 yards in the last three minutes of the third period to expand the margin to 20-0 after three periods.

Easton Flaugh’s one-yard run put Reeds Spring (7-4) on the scoreboard just over a minute into the fourth quarter to make it 20-6.

The Cubs answered with a six-yard touchdown pass from Woods to Grant Oganesyan with 7:21 left, and Hall raced 60 yards for a final TD two minutes later.
