Good evening folks and thanks in advance for joining News 7 Sports for tonight's edition of Friday Football Extra. This is week number nine of the regular season and before we are finished this evening we'll check the highlights from 14 different games and also check in with the Hokies at Carrier Dome in Syracuse.
[GRAPHIC=LIBERTY/AMHERST]

We begin tonight with the Seminole front runners, the Liberty Minutemen - who tonight looked to improve their district mark to 5-and-0. Tonight, Scott Abell's team was in Amherst trying to shoot down the Lancers.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Amherst/Liberty vs. Amherst Co.; :00]


But Mickey Crouch's team had some different ideas as they took the field tonight ready to rip into the Minutemen..
First quarter action, Lancers forced to punt and the snap will sail over Noach Crouch's head and out the back of the end zone for a safety.. 2- zip Liberty early on..
Lancers would get back on track though.. Chris Williams drops back to pass and sails one out to Brian McPherson.. the leaping catch is good for a 30- yard gain deep into Minuteman territory..
A couple of plays later and it's Williams, the quarterback keeper up the middle for a 3- yard score and Amherst is on top 7- to- 2.
Liberty would answer.. the ball on the Lancer 30 and that's the big man, number 40 Chase Andrews bouncing off guys all the way into the end zone.. the two-point conversion would put Liberty back on top 10-7..
Amherst comes right back.. the shovel pass from Williams to McPherson and he's gone.. 53 yards before they pull him down at the 11- yard line.. he'd score a few plays later to make it 14-10 Lancers.. the fans were smelling an upset..
[SUPER=52-Liberty/20/Amherst Co./17;]


Just before the half, after a Liberty fumble, Noah Crouch would knock down a 38- yard field goal to make it 17- to 10 going into the break. But Liberty manages to come back and win it 20 to 17.

It's time now to check in on what most folks in the Roanoke Valley and beyond considered the marquee game of the night - Salem at Northside. The Vikings came in tonight with the better record, the better personnel, and the better chance of winning. But Salem arrived on Peters Creek Road in no mood to relinquich its Blue Ridge crown. Roy Stanley has more on Northside attempt to beat Salem for the first time since 1993.

Lord Botetourt looked to not only keep pace in the Blue Ridge race but also keep building momentum for the playoffs. Tonight the Cavs hosted the hard luck Christiansburg Blue Demons.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Daleville/Christiansburg vs. Lord Botetourt; :00]

Homecoming at Lord Botetourt followed the induction of the second class of hall of famers into the school's hall - including former Friday Football Extra great Elton Tolliver!! Christiansburg would have the first opportunity to score tonight as Matt Woodyard hits Michael Creasy in the endzone for an apparent TD. But an illegal formation penalty calls it back and the Burg comes up empty. The Cavs would then get on the move. Anthony Ford runs up the middle on the keeper and then right at you. He eventually is stopped at the Christiansburg 42 yard line after a nice pickup. The Cavs would then face a second and one from the 20. Austin Bousman takes the Ford pass in on the right side to put Botetourt
[SUPER=52-Christiansburg/6/Lord Botetourt/31;]

on top. The Cavaliers win it 31 to 6 to improve to 7-and-1.

The front runners in the Piedmont district, the Magna Vista Warriors, were in Bassett tonight looking to make quick work of the winless Bengals and all avoid a letdown from last week's emotional win over Tunstall.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Bassett/Magna Vista vs. Bassett; :00]

Coach Joe Beckelheimer made sure that there would not be a letdown for the Trojans in their pursuit of bagging a Bengal. The Warriors Deon Moore gets things started by intercepting this Cedric Watkins' pass. He makes the pick and returns it to the 25 yard line. Magna Vista would then let John Lieteau takes care of business with a bruising blast of the middle that eventually covers 75 yards. The Warriors start to crank up their offensive machine as they take a 7-to-nothing lead. The Warriors would score at will with Lieteau doing even more damage on this TD dash. Magna Vista eventually went on top 20-to-nothing before - Cesar Tatum would counter that with a nice run of his own as he scores late in the second.
[SUPER=52-Magna Vista/61/Bassett/23;]

But the Warriors stay perfect in the Piedmont with a 61 to 23 win over Bassett.

Tunstall is still hoping to make some noise in the postseason, but tonight the first order of business for the Trojans was to play the role of the road warrior at Fieldale-Collinsville.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Collinsville/Tunstall vs. Fieldale Coll.; :00]

The Cavaliers had some work to do as they came out in the second half trailing 28-to-nothing. The Cavs would let John Parker junior take this pitch off the right side. He will turn the corner and then turn on the jets. It's a 79 yard scoring play and Fieldale cuts the lead to 28-to-6. They then go for two, and Parker gets in off the right side to make it 28-to-8. On the ensuing kickoff, Rontate martin bobbles the ball, but Byron Logan will pick it up, bust a move of the right side
[SUPER=52-Tunstall/28/Fieldale Coll./8;]

and made a sweet return into Cavalier territory. Tunstall gets all of its points in the opening half and tops FC tonight 28-to-8.

the attention shifted to Rocky Mount where the Franklin County Eagles hosted the unbeaten Patrick Henry Patriots, who were looking to go to 8-and-0.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Rocky Mount/Patrick Henry vs. Franklin Co.; :00]

Homecoming tonight in the Mount as Blake Webb was named King and Bridgett Ellis was crowned this year's queen. It was 21-to-10 PH at the half after trailing early. Jermaine Myers would score in the third to push the Patriots' advantage to 28-to-10. Franklin County would attempt to come back and tighten things up even more. Daniel Bowles pass is picked off by Maurice Robinson at the PH two yard line and then falls out of bounds. PH would add another tally as Robinson passes to Tremayne Johnson over the middle. It's an 8 yard TD. With 1:08 to go it's 35-to-10.
[SUPER=52-Patrick Henry/35/Franklin Co./18;]

The Patriots remain unbeaten with a 35 to 18 win over the Eagles.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./E.C. Glass vs. Cave Spring; ]

It would be a happy homecoming at Dwight Bogel Stadium as Tessa Ashwell was named this year's queen and Jason Owenby was voted king. Things would simply go the Knights' way tonight as Tom Hagen turns the less than perfect punt formation into a fake punt as he passes to Daniel Payne, and he will carry it all the way down to the E.C. Glass 29 yard line.
[SUPER=52-E.C. Glass/0/Cave Spring/30;]

Later in the same drive, the Knights from their own 14 - let Jacob Lewis pass to Michael Brammer in the endzone. It's 30-to-0 Cave Spring as the Knights improve to 7-and-1.

William Fleming knows it already is out of the playoff picture this season, but tonight the Colonels were in Pearisburg playing for pride against a Giles team that plans to make plenty of noise once the postseason starts.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Pearisburg/Wm. Fleming vs. Giles; :00]

Steve Ragsdale had to like his chances as the second half began with this one all tied up at 8-a piece. After a back and forth third quarter, Giles looked as though it was taking over as Conney Ratcliffe blasts down the right side and scores on the 93 yard touchdown run to put Giles on top 14-to-8. But a holding penalty wiped out the score and changed the momentum, as well. Giles would then fumble and the Colonels would capitalize with Demetrius Grant going into the endzone to make it a 15-to-8 game in favor of the Colonels. The Colonels would get 7 more on their next possession, with Grant again making it into the zone. It's now 22-to-8. Fleming would just wear down the Spartans.
[SUPER=52-William Fleming/29/Giles/8;]

Calvin Bannister tacks on another 7 by going 66 yards and Fleming turns a tight game into a 29-to-8 victory.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Radford/Glenvar vs. Radford; :00]

Chivalry isn't dead in Radford, but common sense apparently is as this guy in shorts gives up the blanket and freezes in his shorts. We pick it up in the 4th with Glenvar on top 26-to-13 and on the move. Brandon Carroll rolls out, throws to the endzone, but has his pass picked off by Robert Frye as the Bobcats look to come back. But Radford would fumble it back and Glenvar would make the Cats pay as Anthony Hackett runs it in for his third TD of the night to make it 32-to-13 Glenvar on top and in control. Then later in the fourth, Hackett will top off his night and cap the Highlander win by taking the snap and weaving his way into the end zone.
[SUPER=52-Glenvar/38/Radford/13;]

Glenvar turns the Three Rivers upside down with a 38-to-13 upset win over Radford.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Roanoke/Fuqua vs. Rke. Catholic; :00]

The Celtic band was making some noise tonight at Bob McLelland Field. We pick up action late in the game with 8 minutes to go. Roanoke Catholic lines up for a fake field goal, the holder takes off around the left end, but Fuqua stops the Celtic effort short of the goal line. The Falcons would come back from midfield with Adam Garrett handing off to Dane Williams. He takes it off left tackle, breaks one hold, drops his head and picks up 8 yards. Fuqua would then let Garrett go up top. His screen pass to Williams is complete. He will turn upfield and race right by the Friday Football Extra crew on the 46 yard pickup.
[SUPER=52-Fuqua/16/Roanoke Catholic/0;]

It was homecoming tonight in Gretna as the members of the court struck a pose. But this one was all William Campbell, as Thomas Boyd the quarterback keeps the ball and carries it all the way down to the 24 for a 17 yard pickup. On the very next play, Boyd will ignite the Generals' run and shoot with a pass to Cedric Peerman. He makes the catch on the far sideline and he manages to score from 24 yards out. It's 7-to-nothing after a quarter. Boyd and Peerman would continue to make waves in the air as they connect this time for a sweet 23 yard pickup into Hawks' territory. This time it's Boyd with the pass to Dominic Yuille (you-ELL). This connection is good for another touchdown. And it's 14-to-nothing with 7:45 to go before the half. William Campbell would continue to cause all kinds of problems - as Boyd fumbles, but picks it up and completes the toss to Chauncey Davis. It's a 58 yard

It was senior night at Staunton River as upperclassmen and their parents were honored in the pregame ceremonies. The Eagles have the ball at midfield in the first as Jay Phares drops back and fires the rock to the wrong team. Steven Kee gets the interception and the strong return to the 36. The Bees would take over and score on their next play with Scott Nixon giving it up to Dejon Kennedy - he cuts in off the left side and scores from 36 yards out. It's now 7-to-nothing. Still in the first, the Bees let BIG Russell Lomax take his turn at shredding the defense. He goes off the left side, through the line and he is unstoppable. It's now 14-to-nothing. Still in the first, Brookville from its own 27, lets Matt Burch do the dirty work. He gets great blocking and
[SUPER=52-Brookville/41/Staunton River/14;]

he will use his own skills, as well. Eventually, he will take it 77 yards for touchdown. Brookville grounds the Eagles with ease tonight 41 to 14.

Grayson and head coach Bill Strong showed their respect during the national anthem and then went to work with defense dominating. It looked like it would be long night for Grayson early as Michael Paul Alley takes the handoff and rumbles 14 yards, but the Blue Devils would defense would stop the drive. Ft.

Grayson will try to get something going in the second quarter, as Adam Sparks drops back, looks left, passes, and see the Chiswell "D" knock it down.

The Green Wave had lots of history hanging over their heads tonight at Ragsdale Field. Pocahontas would waste little time in giving Narrows a history lesson itself, as Chad Asbury caps a nine play drive with a four yard plunge into the endzone. He gets the TD and "Pokie" gets the 7-to-nothing lead. The Green Wave would come right back with a nice drive of it's own as Richard Hodge caps the 11 play drive with the 2 yard dive. We're all tied at 7. But early in the second quarter, Pocahontas would forge back in front on this 10 yard sprint up the middle by Dustin Thompson.

((18 carriers, 149 yards and two touchdowns, stats John Lieteau has been putting up most of the season. In fact his 135 rushing attempts for 979 yards through eight weeks translates into over seven yards a carry. ((:))
But perhaps the seniors greatest assets are his versatility and indurance, in fact his list of responsibilities seem to keep growing and growing. ((:)) ((:)) ((:))
Saying Lietaeu has a motor that never stops isn't just lip service. The outside linebacker leads the team in tackles and is dangerous to throw at. His passion for the game and body structure reminds his coach of a former Staunton River player now making waves for the second ranked Virginia Tech Hokies. ((:)) Lieteau says he intends to play in college and will probably start at Community College next season. Steve Mason Friday Football Extra. ))
