A very pleasant good evening everybody and welcome to yet another edition of Friday Football Extra. It's hard to believe but summer officially ended and the season hit the midway point for a number of teams tonight.
[GRAPHIC=PULASKI/DANVILLE]

One of those is Pulaski County, our number one ranked team in the Super-7. The Cougars have been the road warriors the last three weeks with back to back to back trips to Glass, Salem and Bluefield. Tonight the Cougars returned to Kenneth Dobson Stadium for the first time since opening night to hook with GW Danville.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Pulaski Co./G.W. Danville vs. Pulaski Co.; :00]

The Cougars seemed to be comfortable back home taking a 21-to-7 half time lead. But they were far from finished. To open the third quarter, Frank Cobbs goes 11 yards as the Cougars again make their mark on the ground and Cobbs has another big night at the office. Pulaski would seal this deal on its next drive as Alan Wheeling completes the 63 yard drive making it 28-to-7 Cougars in the fourth. The Cougars would continue to pounce on the Eagles. Wheeling finds Josh Bowling in the endzone making it a 35-to-7 game in favor of the Cougars. Mother Nature would then drop by with a heavy shower to make the GW snap a little tough too handle.
[SUPER=52-G.W. Danville/13/Pulaski Co./42;]

Cobbs finds the rock in the pile in the end zone. Pulaski rips GW Danville tonight 42-to-13 to stay unbeaten.

Another of the RVD's unbeatens came home tonight, as well. Patrick Henry had to work overtime to beat GW Danville last Friday, tonight the Patriots hosted Halifax County in what next season will be a district game once that new Western Valley district takes shape.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Roanoke/Halifax Co. vs. Patrick Henry; :]

The Patriots had to be content with both their big dogs on the sideline tonight - Chipper and star runner Jermaine Myers,who was nursing an injury. But PH was still able to run up 35-to-13 lead in the third. From the Comets' 10, Maurice Robinson keeps, gets hit, but falls in the endzone and it's 41-to-13 Patriots. But halifax would not quit. On a first and ten, inside the Patriot ten, Jarvis Hankins fights his way for the score. It's now a 41-to-19 game with three to play in the third. The Comets would do it again with Justin Shepperd throws deep to a well covered Dante Ballou, who comes down with the ball and falls in the zone. It's now 44-to-25 with seven minutes left.
[SUPER=52-Halifax Co./25/Patrick Henry/51;]

But the Patriots would complete the track meet as Robinson tosses to Dujuan Johnson who scores to make the final 51-to-25. Not a misprint, just a mismatch.

[GRAPHIC=RUSTBURG/S.RIVER]

Yet another unbeaten was in action in the Seminole district as the Rustburg Red Devils rolled into Moneta looking to put the clamps on Jermaine Moyer and the Golden Eagles of Staunton River.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Moneta/Rustburg vs. Staunton River; :00]

Rustburg boss Mike Scharnus is a former Virginia Tech player under Bill Dooley, but he still knows about special teams. From the Eagles' 29, Eric Scott flies up the middle and blocks the punt. He then scoops it up and takes it to the house. It's 7-to-nothing Rustburg with two minutes gone in the first quarter. Late in the opening period, the River's Jermaine Moyer will show some of the stuff that helped get him 1000 yards this season as he fights his way down to the 7 on the 19 yard gain. Three plays later, Justin Wheeler gets in the zone and we'll all tied up at 7 a piece. But again, the Red Devils' special teams would truly be special. Erin Lassiter takes the punt at the 38, hits the right side and runs all the way down to the 10 yards line. It's a 52 yard return and it sets up a score.
[SUPER=52-Rustburg/31/Staunton River/14;]

Tony Jefferson dives in from the three. Rustburg stays perfect on the season with a 31-TO-14 win.

Mustang Madness was in effect tonight as Coach Brett McPherson gets his ready to comeback in the second half trailing 7-to-nothing. In the third, Floyd on its own 41, Issac Spence gets the ball to Derrick Mannon and he will take it out to the left for 17 yards on the carry. A few plays later, Spence rolls to his left. He keeps and runs it in for a 15 yard TD. Floyd takes a 14-to-nothing advantage. Eastern Montgomery would have trouble all night long coming up with a

[NEWSCAST=ffe]
[WRITER=mst]
[TAPE#=FFE-6]
[GRAPHIC=FFE]


We are back and set to check the pulse of the Salem Spartans.
[GRAPHIC=SALEM/ROCKBRIDGE]

After losing to Pulaski two weeks ago, the Salem fans said until next week. But on the next Friday, Cave Spring handed Salem its second straight loss. As the Salem fans exited Dwight Bogle stadium many were heard to say, don't worry - we haven't started district play yet.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Salem/Rockbridge Co. vs. Salem; :00]

Tonight the Spartans did just that as the Rockbridge County Wildcats made what is likely their last ever trip into Salem Stadium in the Blue Ridge opener for both schools. We pick it up in the third quarter with Salem on top 28-to-7 and looking to add more and Jeremy Shelor takes the kickoff on his own 15 yard line and motors all the way down to the Rockbridge 17 yard line. In all it covers 63 yards. Four plays later, Manuel Lewis slams in from the two over the right side and salem is comfortably in front 35-to-7. The Spartans' Reico Jordan would take it down the right side with ease as he scores from 28 yards out.
[SUPER=52-Rockbridge Co./14/Salem/42;]

The Spartans get back on the winning track with a 42 to 14 win over the Wildcats.

Another Blue Ridge opener was on tap tonight in Blacksburg where the winless Indians tried to get their act together after an off-week against the William Byrd Terriers.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Blacksburg/William Byrd vs. Blacksburg; :00]

The Indians were more than ready to get win number one in front of an excited crowd at Bill Brown Stadium. Blacksburg would get things started quickly with Brett Smith handing off to John Candelas who weaves his way through the Terriers' defense, finds the open seam and scores from 65 yards out to complete the two play drive. It's 7-to-nothing Blacksburg. Byrd would counter later in the quarter as Marcus English flies through the Indians defense so fast that we have a little trouble catching him on tape. But wait there he is. The score makes it a seven-seven game. Byrd would score again on its next possession in the second quarter.
[SUPER=52-William Byrd/28/Blacksburg/30;]

English rattles in from 33 yards out to put Byrd on the board again and on top to stay as the Terriers lose it 28 to 30.

Time now to head into Henry County where the Martinsville Bulldogs hooked up with their good friends and wicked rivals - the Magna Vista Warriors tonight at Dan Greene Stadium.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Martinsville/Magna Vista vs. Martinsville; :00]

The Dogs and Warriors flipped with the Bulldogs picking the right side of the coin. And they also would pick the right plays in the first quarter as Greg Wade puts the Dogs on top with the 25 yard field goal. Martinsville takes a 3-to-nothing lead. Magna Vista's Alexay Hairston will fire back at that kick with his arm as he hooks up with Dave Santocnma. He will take it 37 yards down the sideline for the score. The Warriors take a 6-to-3 lead on the road.
[SUPER=52-Magna Vista/25/Martinsville/3;]

Magna Vista would make another statement in this one as John Lieteau scores from the one and Magna Vista gets the 25 to 3 win.

Another of our remaining unbeatens, the Dan River Wildcats, headed north from Ringgold to face their biggest challenge of this season, to date - the Tunstall Trojans.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Dry Fork/Dan River vs. Tunstall; :00]

We pick it up late in the fourth with the Dan River band playing, but Tunstall on top 20-to-14 and the rain coming down. On the Tunstall punt Chuck Echols fumbles the snap. He will pick up the ball and attempt to kick it, but it will bounce off of a Dan River player and right back to him. He is tackled and the Keystone Cops routine is over. Dan River would try to tie the game with some trickery. Jason Murphy pitches to Kwsind [qua-sin] Lucio, who in turn throws back across the field to Murphy, who gets the 15 yard gain.
[SUPER=52-Dan River/14/Tunstall/20;]

But Tunstall would hold and get the ball back. Brandon Hairston takes a knee to run out the clock, and Tunstall knocks Dan River from the ranks of the unbeaten 20-to-14.

[SUPER=51-Rural Retreat/George Wythe vs. Rural Retreat; :00]

The Indians' veteran head coach Dean Rhea gave his troops some last minute instructions as they opened the second half tied at 13-all. Early in the third - Landon Fielder pitches to Chris Bralley, who jets around the left side and dives into the endzone from the 7. That makes it 19-to-13 Rural Retreat. After a big fourth down conversion, George Wythe's Charlie Clark drops back and hits a covered Michael Johnson in the back of the endzone. We're tied up at 19-all with 9 second left in the third. Finally, with two seconds left in the game, Adam James would close out the 2000 hall of fame game with a

The other Wythe County school, Ft. Chiswell, stepped out of the Mountain Empire tonight to face Three Rivers district unbeaten Giles.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Max Meadows/Giles vs. Ft. Chiswell; :00]

The Captains would get together for the toss and that's about as close as the Pioneers would get to the Spartans all night. Giles would waste very little time as Cooney Ratcliffe takes the ball on the Spartans first play from scrimmage and goes through a huge hole on the right side. He's untouched so he keeps running until he crosses the goal line 70 yards later. It's 8-to-nothing. Giles would then score on a punt return after shutting down the Pioneers offense. Carson Ward goes up the heart of the defesne and he will rumble all the way down to the Ft. Chiswell 24 yard line.
[SUPER=52-Giles/48/Ft. Chiswell/33;]

Three plays later, Adan Brown takes the quick handoff and gets the quick 10 yard touchdown. Giles moves to 5-and-0 with the 48 to 33 rout.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./James River vs. Glenvar; :00]

The Highlanders ripped Floyd last week and the players were still sky high tonight. Anthony Hackett fields the James River punt near midfield. He will make great cut and 47 yards later catch his breath in the endzone. Glenvar jumps in front 7-to-nothing. Later in the first down 12-to-nothing, the Knights would stand up for themselves. From the shotgun, Marlon Rickman finds Travis Young streaking across the middle. He's wide open and he is also in the end zone. The 75 yard score makes it 12-to-7. Now in the second, with Glenvar operating from its own 24, Brandon Carroll hands off to Hackett. He hits a hole and see ya! Hackett will score on the 66 yard run to make it 20-to-7. But the Knights would show great improvement from earlier weeks as Rickman and Young make the Highlanders pay again over the middle.
[SUPER=52-James River/24/Glenvar/60;]

[SUPER=51-New Castle/Bland Co. vs. Craig Co.; :00]

But it was homecoming tonight in Craig, and the Rockets hoped this would be their chance to get win number one on the season. And Bland County would play the role of gracious guest as the Bears' Casey Elliott fumbles into the endzone and Craig County's Timmy Miller falls on it for the touchback. But Elliott would come back the next time Bland County got the ball as he picked up 24 yards on the run moving the ball down to the Rockets 6 yard line.
[SUPER=52-Bland Co./39/Craig Co./28;]

Liberty with the ball now, Stephen Brawley looking to connect with Josh Goff, but Devay Carter steps in front of it.. the great return plus two personal fouls puts the ball on the Minuteman 14..
The very next play though, Dejon Kennedy gets the nod but coughs up the ball.. Fletcher Miller in the right place at the right time, he scoops it and goes 85 yards untouched for the score..

Lancers looking to torch the Minutemen early on..
First quarter action, Amherst with the ball, Chris Williams trying to drop one in there but T.C. Burr snags it and returns it for big yardage, but hold on.. the flags fly and a clip would bring it back, Lancers keep the ball..
Same drive, they're in the J-F red zone, the handoff goes to Brian McPherson, he'll bounce off a couple of guys and into the end zone for the early 7- nothing lead.
The ensuing kickoff will fall to Hunter Horsley, the senior back looking for some room, but Jason White gets the hand in there to strip it.. Noah Crouch falls on the ball and Amherst gets it back..
Ed Landis wondering what he has to do get his team going..
This is the play that would come back to haunt the Minutemen, a chip shot field goal but they try the shovel pass instead, it fails to pick up the first down..

The Bishops made the short trip up from Lynchburg and hoped to make short work of the Raiders. After falling behind 7-to-nothing Episcopal would break one off good and proper as number 33 Ryan Woomer, a junior from Lexington, Kentucky takes the inside handoff cuts back across the grain and motors 74 yards for the score. We're tied at 7-all. North Cross would forge back in front in the third quarter as Charlie Glenn slams in off the left side from five yards away.

[OUT Q=...AS IT IS."]

((Jacob Lewis's mom teaches Spanish at Salem high school , so Jacob knew he would be the target of some verbal abuse from the Spartans. He just didn't expect the physical abuse to be so great. ((BEN FOUTZ:)) Lewis twice had to exit the Salem game only to return in storybook fashion. ((JACOB LEWIS:)) That support would buoy Lewis and the offense on their game winning drive. First came this fourth and four connection with Michael Brammer at the Salem 46. ((JACOB LEWIS:)) Three plays later on a third and 15, Lewis would complete as sweet a throw as you'll ever see - throwing across the field and hitting Daniel Payne in stride on a 45 yard scoring play. ((BEN FOUTZ:)) ((JACOB LEWIS:)) That TD was one for the record books. Lewis finished the game with 15 completions for 3 touchdowns and school record 302 yards as he broke the all-time yardage mark formerly held by Corey Paxton.)) ((JACOB LEWIS:))
