Good evening everybody and welcome to what turned out to be a chilly end to the high school football regular season in more ways than one. The temperatures dropped and so too did the playoff hopes of several contenders trying to extend their seasons.
[GRAPHIC=POSTSEASON]

We will not only crown 7 district champs tonight, but we'll also try to make some sense of the playoff situation - especially in Region Three - Division Four - where nothing is seemingly fair this season.
[GRAPHIC=HERITAGE/AMHERST]

Let's begin right there where unbeaten Heritage took on once beaten and desperate Amherst County. The fact that a team could be 8-and-1 after nine weeks and still be in danger of missing the playoffs just ain't right. But the Lancers were just that tonight. They needed to beat Heritage or pack up their equipment tomorrow morning.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Lynchburg/Amherst Co. vs. Heritage; :00]

The Heritage fans have been through a lot this season along with the players and coaches and tonight would be another wild ride. We pick it up late in the second - 30 seconds before halftime - the Lancers cap a long drive with Mateco Dixon takes the reverse and scores from seven yards out. It's 14-to-6 Amherst on top at halftime. Midway through the third - Heritage hollars back by capping a long drive of its own. Chris Cook scores from the five.
It's now 14-all after the 2 point conversion. Amherst again on the ensuing kickoff. Chris Parrish takes the kick, switches fields, and motors down the left sideline. He will takes the rock all the way to the one foot line to set up the next score. 21-to-14 still in the third. Midway through the fourth quarter the Pioneers score. Frank Marchisella punches it in from the two. The Heritage extra point was no good and Amherst is clinging to a 21-to-20 lead and a playoff spot. But when you have Heritage down, you better go for the jugular - because the Pioneers do not quit. With a 4th and 6 from the 36 with under 3 minutes to go, Donnie Foster hooks up with Chris Cook for a 21 yard gain down the Amherst 15 yard line. Then with under a minute to play - Cook will sweep around the left side for the 2 yard score.
[SUPER=50-Amherst Co./21/Heritage/26;]

The "pacemaker Pioneers" do it again - beating Amherst and ending the Lancers postseason plans with a 26-to-21 win.

The Liberty Minutemen were also 8-and-1 coming into tonight. The not only needed an Amherst loss, but a win over Staunton River to get into the playoff mix.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Moneta/Liberty vs. Staunton River; :00]

Most of the coaches in the area will tell you that Liberty - is without question - the most talented team in our part of the state. On Liberty's second possession - it will take control of the ground as it has all year. O.B. Blake dishes the handoff over toe Stephen Toler, and he will cut that thing off the right end and he will pickup 23 yard on the carry. Then from the 10, Blake takes it and then takes it around the end to light up the scoreboard. It's 7-to-nothing in favor of Liberty. In the second quarter, Toler will take off right up the middle and this time he will pick up nine yards and another Liberty first down. The drive would end from the nine - as Blake carries the mail in around the end one more time.
[SUPER=50-Liberty/28/Staunton River/8;]

Liberty does it's part and whips Staunton River 28 to 8. The Minutemen finish the season at 9-and-1.

Another good team a good record knew it would sitting at home as well tonight. Both Fleming and Byrd entered their Blue Ridge title game in Vinton with 7-and-2 records. But because it lost to Botetourt last week - Byrd knew that it could beat Fleming tonight and still not even make the postseason.

[SUPER=53-Vinton/William Fleming vs. William Byrd; :00]

The latest homecoming in the history of Friday Football Extra featured attendants Caleb Carawan and Ali Crawford. They would help in the crowning of this year's queen Ellen Callahan. The Terriers came out to start the third with 7-to-6 lead. Byrd with the ball at midfield lets Billy Ray Welch take it off the right side and break out for a 14 yard gain. He topped the 100 yard mark tonight. But the Colonels would stop that drive and from their own 40, Dere Hicks hands off to Donnell Blake, and he will head around the left end and pick up 19 yards on a nice carry. Dwayne Preist would then take the hand-off through the right side. He picks up his blocks and the Preist will take it 40 yards to the zone. The Colonels take a 12-to-7 lead in the third. The Terriers had a shot late in the game - with 8 seconds on the clock - and a 4th down from the Fleming 7 - Highfill scrambles and lays it up
[SUPER=50-William Fleming/12/William Byrd/7;]

in the endzone - and Fleming swats it away at the last second. Fleming wins the Blue Ridge title 12-to-7 and keeps Byrd from making the playoffs.

In the Piedmont tonight Magna Vista traveled to Tunstall looking to clinch the district crown outright and possibly still earn the top seed in the Region four, division four playoffs. The Trojans needed a win over the Warriors and some help to slip past Richlands for the final postseason spot.

[SUPER=53-Dry Fork/Magna Vista vs. Tunstall; :00]

The Warriors and head coach Joe Beckelheimer were hoping to make quick work of the Trojans. After falling behind 7-to-nothing - Tunstall decided to make it tough on the visitors. Brent Weaver rolls to his right and hooks up with Mario Huffman on the first and goal. We're tied at 7-all. Tunstall would also play some solid defense as they Trojans put the hat on ball carrier Quentin Preston. Magna Vista had to settle for a field goal. With a 10-to-7 lead the Warriors then got busy on offense as quarterback Matt Duffy fires the pass to D.J. Preston. He hauls in the ball and picks up a first down into Tunstall territory. Magna Vista was looking to add to its total, but the pass is tipped by Cory Brooks right into the hands of Weaver. Tunstall stops the drive inside the 10. But Magna Vista would settle down at take control right before the half. Weaver has his pass picked off by A.J. Watkins. He picks up the

[SUPER=53-Radford/Floyd vs. Radford; :00]

The game was exciting, but when you're a kid nothing beats a good ole roll down the hill on a chilly Friday night. Floyd's first possession would see the Buffs' special teams let them down. The snap is over the punter's head and Radford recovers on the Floyd 15 yard line. But the Floyd "D" would hold and force Trey Mitchell to drive in a short field goal. It's 3-to-nothing Radford in the first. On Radford's next possession, that Floyd defense would rear its head one more time Nathan Charleton is stripped of the ball and Abram Lance would recover for the Buffs, pick it up and carry it in for the score to give the Buffs a 6-to-3 lead.
[super=50-Floyd Co./14/Radford/15;]

Mitchell hit another field goal to tie things up in the second. And his toe would decide as Radford get the 15-to-14.

Blacksburg traveled across town limits to take on Christiansburg tonight and in the process the Bruins were hoping to take home a district trophy. At the beginning of the season, all the talk was about Pulaski and Salem, but the Artist formerly known as the Indians, showed both teams you need more than a name to take the title.

[SUPER=53-Christiansburg/Blacksburg vs. Christiansburg; :00]

The Blue Demons knew going in they were in the playoffs, but they were hoping for a solid showing tonight. Down 13-to-nothing to start the third, the Blue Demons' Andrew Hoffer connects with Antonio Clabon for a touchdown. The Blacksburg lead is cut to 13-to-7. Blacksburg would later be faced with a 4th and 25 from its own 5. Brian Savage gets the punt off, but one of the Blue Demons tips it, Clabon will catch it - and get the Blue Demons closer. Zach Boyd hits the 29 yard field goal in the third. The Blue Demons get within 3 points at 13-to-10. Now in the fourth, Blacksburg tries to get some breathing room. Byron Hurdle takes the handoff and he breaks through the line and into the clear. Hurdle will take it 58 yards for the game clinching score.

The Bruins win the River Ridge title tonight outright with a 20-to-10 win over Christiansburg, but the Blue Demons also make the postseason.

A huge crowd turned out for the inaugural meeting that began with a community wide Red,White and Blue picnic where both sides came together to break bread. The two schools share the same stadium, but tonight was Cave Spring's home game. We pick it up tied at 6 late in the third. With a 4th and long from their own 22, Hidden Valley will fakes the punt.

Tyler Coyer takes the short snap and finds Jud Carte on the right side. He will haul in catch and cart the rock all the way down to the Cave Spring 20 yard line. That set up this one yard plunge by Coyer. He squeezes in. It's 13-to-6 Titans with 11:14 in the game. With six minutes to go, Cave will be faced with a third 2 from the Titnas' 14. Beau Austin hands off to Jeremiah Overstreet who sprints to his left and takes it to the house. They miss the extra point and the Titans have a 13-to-12 lead. Cave Spring with 1:01 play is faced with a 3rd and six from the Hidden Valley 13 yard line. Austin rolls to his left and finds Kenny Horan - the quarterback turned receiver and tonight the hero.

It was senior night at Viking Stadium as the parents and player got some much deserved pats on the back. The Viking then went out looking to make a name for themselves on the field as the Botetourt option it broken up by Greg Myers. He also comes up with the football on the fumble recovery and the Vikings are in business early. Then watch Jim Hickam set up the pass with the run on the same play. Ben Creasy tucks and rolls right, and then fires the pass to Shane Anthony. He makes the catch inbounds in the zone. 7-to-nothing Northside on top. But Botetourt's explosive offense would come right back.

((The Lord Botetourt booster club's raffle of a Kia Rio at halftime, was big, but it didn't come close to being the biggest happening at the stadium last Friday night.

Matt:
Witt gave the home crowd plenty to cheer about, rushing 32 times for 208 yards and 2 scores. The sophomore signal caller also tallied 139 yards thru the air for 3 touchdowns, to go with 9 tackles on defense. Not bad for a guy who wasn't even supposed to play quarterback at the beginning of the season.
