Good evening everybody and welcome to Friday Football Extra's Tropical Rain edition. What a wild day it has been in central and southwest Virginia, but if there's one thing we've learned in 21 years of doing is this show it that you need to plan for the unexpected. Last night we pulled in our talented photographers and tried to pick up as many of the certain Thursday night games as we could, knowing that a complete washout was a real possibility tonight. As a result, we'll have the highlights of 11 games for you in the next half hour, plus get you up to date on when the postponed games have been to in the coming days.
[GRAPHIC=ROCKBRIDGE CO./FT DEFIANCE]

We begin in the Valley district with last night's Rockbridge County - Fort Defiance game. The contest proved once again that it's not how you start, but how you finish.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Rockbridge Co./Ft. Defiance vs. Rockbridge Co.; :00]

The Wildcat fans were delirious as they had a 12 point deficit to make up at the start of the second half. But the Indians would still control the ball early in the third. From their own 37 - C.J. Taylor - cuts around the left end and gets 13 yards for a first down. A couple of plays later, Price will again take the ball through the line and into the endzone for the 10 yard touchdown. It's no 18-to-nothing Ft. Defiance. But Big Mo - would swing the other way. Rockbridge gets the ball inside the Indians 20, and with a fourth and three Chase Prasnicki keeps it around the right end and he will pick up the first down at the four. He then finishes the drive from the three. The Cats are finally on the board making it 18-to-8 after the two point conversion. The Cats would hold and regain the ball in the fourth and this time from inside the 30 Prasnicki airs it out to Aaron Clark, who makes the great catch and dives in to compete the 26 yard scoring play. It's now 18-to-15 - Rockbridge is just down by 3. The Wildcats again take over on downs with just over two minutes to play. Prasnicki will engineer a seven play drive. This one gets them down to the Indians' 26 yard line as Brandon Jarvis makes the catch and gets out of bounds. Then from the 12, the Cats get the game winner as Prasnickki keeps up the middle and dives over two guys for score.
[super=50-Ft. Defiance/18/Rockbridge Co./22;]

Rockbridge County comes from 18 points down in just over a quarter for the 22-to-18 win.

[ENG#=2]



The first administrators to make the call to move their game from Friday to Thursday night were the ones at Alleghany and Covington high schools. They decided on Tuesday to move to the annual War in the Highlands largely because much of the parking around the stadium is on grass - which is no good when saturated by tropical moisture.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Low Moor/Covington vs. Alleghany; :00]

After spending five days at the bottom of Pike's Pond, the Alleghany Principal Kenny Higgins made sure the Brackman Cup was high and dry. Alleghany tailback Jonathan Jordan ran like he was shot out of a cannon on this night. This is the first play from scrimmage for the Mountaineers, and it goes for 28 yards to the Cougars' 6 to set the tone for the evening. Jordan then finishes what he starts as he dives in for the six yard touchdown and Alleghany strikes first to take a seven to nothing lead. The Mounties went on top 14 to nothing before Covington finally got a spark. On fourth down, quarterback Shorty Wolfe goes for it all, but an excellent defensive play by Aaron Hall saves the touchdown. Alleghany would get the ball back and quarterback Lonnie Allen knows what to do with it. He dashes up the middle for 24 yards to the Covington 17 yard line.
[super=50-Covington/0/Alleghany/27;]

And Jordan would finish off the drive and the game, as Alleghany wins it 27-to-nothing.

[ENG#=3]



The Moorefield, West Virginia Yellow Jackets from the eastern panhandle of the Mountaineer state, rolled into Hot Springs last night with a serious pedigree. The Jackets have won 6 of the last 8 West Virginia Class A state titles. In fact, they beat Big Creek -- alma mater of former Bath coach Chris Jones -- for their second title in 1997.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Hot Springs/Moorefield, WV vs. Bath Co.; :00]

Tonight Jones' successor Will Fields and his team were hoping to overcome a 13 point deficit late in the first half of this one. Joey Crouse, the Bath quarterback will do his part to get the Chargers back in it as he picks up 19 yards on the scramble moving the ball to the Yellow Jackets 44 yard line. Then Crouse will find his go to guy - Big John Phillips - on the fade to the back of the endzone. They hook up and Bath cuts the to 26-to-19 at halftime on the 17 yard TD. Unfortunately for Bath, the second half was a one-sided affair. Josh Stickley extends the Moorefield lead to 34-to-19 on the 20 yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Bath tries to get back in it, as Crouse hits Phillips over the middle, but he coughs it up and the Jackets' Reed Williams scoops it up for Moorefield. The Jackets would get two more scores including this Marcus Weese five yard TD run. It's 46-to-19 and the rout is on in Hot Springs.
[SUPER=50-Moorefield, WV/46/Bath Co./25;]

Bath would get one more as Crouse shows some moves on the impressive TD run, but it was Moorefield's night as they beat Bath 46-to-25.

Let's now head down to check in on the once mighty Parry McCluer program that has fallen on some hard times. Since Bob Williams departure - playoff appearances have been non-existent.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Buena Vista/Buffalo Gap vs. Parry McCluer; :00]

But last night the Fighting Blues were loaded for Bison as theyhosted Buffalo Gap in Buena Vista. The Blues would waste little time getting started. On the first possession of the game from their own 14 - Barrett Downs will go upstairs and connect with Dallas Cole. He makes the over the shoulder catch and pick up 34 yards on the play. Several plays later from midfield - Downs will look to pass , but this time keep and scramble around the left end. He finds a seam and rides the line all the way for a 48 yard touchdown to make it 6-to-nothing. But just inside the second quarter, the visitors from Augusta County would get it done as Joseph Hagadone lays up a little screen pass that Eric Deaver will field and pick up 20 yards before he's brought down. Hagadone would take the ball up the middle dodging and faking his way into the endzone from 15 yards out to make it 6-all in the second. On the ensuing kickoff - Parry McCluer's Chad Austin will pull in the rock at his own 20 and take it right back up the gut. He will follow his blocks and just run into the daylight. The 80
[SUPER=50-Buffalo Gap/9/Parry McCluer/13;]

yard return is the winning score as the Blues win it 13 to 9 and Parry McCluer improves to 2-and -0 on the season.

Welcome back everybody. Football players can prepare to stop the pass or the run, but this week, they couldn't stop Hurricane Ivan. Most schools moved their games to Thursday to avoid the storm's wrath, but others did not, and now must try to play Monday. Travis Wells joins us now in our Dr. Pepper spotlight segment to try to make sense of the decision making process. [TAKE TRAVIS FULL]
Mike, never before has a storm impacted the area high school football schedule in this way, where so many schools chose to play a night early. But just the threat of Hurricane Ivan had athletic directors and principals scrambling.

[SUPWE=49-Travis Wells;]


((That's the way that administrators at more than 20 schools felt about moving their football games from Friday night to Thursday night. Hindsight is 20-20, but Alleghany principal Kenny Higgins used a little foresight. The Mountaineers were trendsetters, becoming the first school to take action on Tuesday afternoon, moving their game with Covington to Thursday.
Kenny:
Franklin County was one of the last schools to make the call, early Thursday morning.
Tom:
One other consideration is gate money. Sawyers estimated that his school would lose between 10 and 12 thousand dollars by playing a night early. But the Rocky Mount school won't be hit as hard as some other smaller communities.
Tom:
Playing early certainly had its up side after Friday's rain and string of tornados. There was no football at Victory Stadium where Patrick Henry was supposed to host Pulaski County. The same was true at William Byrd's Bob Patterson Stadium. Ivan certainly was for the birds, and those schools that thought they would play Friday, are now thinking that maybe they should have tried Thursday.

Mike, those AD's may get to make a decision on when to play again in the very near future. Hurricane Jeanne is slowly working its way towards the east coast.

[SUPER=53-Rocky Mount/Martinsville vs. Franklin Co.; :00]


Taylor Edwards and company were fresh off a win over Rustburg last week.
And it didn't take long for the 'Dogs to get on the board in this one. Just three plays in Quan Beamer rolls out and throws it up for Jervis Wimbush who hauls in the 29 yard TD pass for a 6-nothing lead.
But the Eagles answered as Ronnie Edwards ripped off a nice run for a first down, despite playing with a separated shoulder. Edwards rushed for 178 yards on the night.
He found the endzone twice in the first half, including this three yard run up the gut as Franklin County led 20 to 6 at the break.
The Bulldogs put the clamps on in the second half, but came up empty on three drives deep in Eagle territory. Beamer gets picked by Xavier Drakeford at the goal line.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Campbell Co./Appomattox vs. Brookville; :00]

The crowd at Stinger Stadium was as boisterous as usual and they would have plenty to cheer about in this one. On the opening play of the second half, Appomattox will kickoff to the Bees and Darren McKenzie will pick up the ball and somehow he will go untouched through the pourous Raiders defense for the score to turn a close game into some margin - 24-to-8 Bees. In the fourth quarter, the Raiders Raschad Kelso would try to cut into that lead with the nice spin move and toss to P.J. Spinner for the five yard TD and the Bees' lead is cut to 24-to-16 after the conversion. Appomattox would get the ball back aftera fumbled kickoff, and this time Kelso will keep the ball and take it up the middle. And with a little help from his friends he's in for the score. It's now 24-to-22 Bees. But that's as close as it would get as Steve Sims hangs onto the ball on this quarterback keeper. He will weave his way through the

[SUPER=53-Lynchburg/Jefferson Forest vs. E.C. Glass; :00]

The Toppers came in after last week's emtional win over Heritage looking to keep the momentum rolling. Jefferson Forest was on the move in this one in the first quarter as Michael Martin picks off Ian Holmes' pass and he will make the short return and put the ball in the hands of his offense. A few plays later in the second quarter, Sean Sturm hands off to Mondreus Oakley and he gets in from the one to make it a 7-to-nothing game in favor of JF. Glass would come back with a little air Topper action as Holmes and Anthony Huggins connect on the pass play for a first down. The Toppers would then score to knot things up as Charlie Craighill gets the ball on the handoff and struts in from 15 yards

out to tie the game at 7-all. The Hilltoppers come back from their emotional win over Heritage to lose to the Cavaliers 14 to 7.

The Golden Eagles and head coach Dave Rocco hit the field hoping to find a little success of their own after a somewhat rocky start to the season. But the Highlanders would open the scoring as Daniel Ayers rolls out to his left and spots Devon Hackett open in the endzone. He hauls in the rainbow and Glenvar jumps on top 7-to-nothing in the second. Staunton River would answer that tally with this counter reverse as Ryan Burdette comes around and just gets in the endzone to make it a 7-to-6 game after the missed conversion. But Glenvar would rule the roost the rest of the way as Carter Brown sweeps to the left side and gets inside the pylon for a 14-to-6 lead in the second. And then to cap off the night, Ayers rolls out to his left and

It's time now to check in one of the most dominating teams here in the early stages of the Friday Football Extra season.
[GRAPHIC=G.WYTHE/GRAYSON CO.]

The George Wythe Maroons were looking to not only stay perfect on the season, but to also keep their high scoring offense and shutout minded defense in tact. The Maroons had won their first two games of the season 56-to-nothing and 33-to-nothing. This week they hosted Grayson County.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Wytheville/Grayson Co. vs. George Wythe; :00]

The George Wythe cheerleaders tried to send a message to the visitors as they welcomed their Maroons onto the field. On just the second play from scrimmage, Todd Blue takes the handoff and he will take it 47 yards up the middle, making it look easy as Geroge Wythe takes a 7-to-nothing lead. After a Blue Devil turnover, the Maroons go right back to work, and on their very first play, Colin Wisman hits a streaking Derrick Davis for a 35 yard touchdown. The Maroons lead 13-to-nothing late in the first quarter. After forcing a Blue Devil punt, the Maroons take the rock on a seven play, 79 yard drive that ends with Blue scoring his second
[super=50-Grayson Co./0/George Wythe/56;]

touchdown in the opening quarter from 15 yards out. Geroge Wythe hammers Grayson County 56-to-nothing.

Throught three games this season, George Wythe has outscored its opponents 151 to nothing.

Lots of fans braved the elements in Max Meadows where there was a slight mist in the air. In the third quarter the Chilhowie had a 21-to-20 lead on the home team and after a fumble filled opening Jared Pierce would keep and rumble 15 yards to the Pioneers 5 yard line. That set the table for Pierce to keep for the one yard score and extend Chilhowie's lead to 27-to-20. The Warriors would keep rolling. Justin Miller takes the handoff from Pierce and busts up the middle and he will take it 41
[super=50-Chilhowie/34/Ft. Chiswell/26;]

yards to the house for the score. Chilhowie takes a 34-to-20 lead and they hang on to beat Fort Chiswell 34-to-26.

In New Castle, the Craig County Rockets also dodged the rain as took on Eastern Montgomery in a good non-district matchup.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-New Castle/Eastern Montgomery vs. Craig Co.; :00]

The Mustangs were Big and Rich in New Castle as they tried to save a horse and ride a rocket. But the homeboys had other plans to for their ignition early in the game. Number 27, Richard Jones takes the handoff inside and five foot five inch senior picks up a great yardage on the carry. That would later set up a one yard plunge by Brock Jones as the Rockets take a 7-to-nothing lead in the first quarter.
Eastern Mont would come back with the pass. Number 19 Jordan Stewart leads an 85 yard drive with this pass to Derek Hancock. The two would finish with drive with a TD connection to cut the lead to 7-to-6. Stewart then put the Mustangs in front as he rolls out to his right and gets the two point conversion pass to Antion Myatt and it's 8-to-7 Mustangs on top. But the Rockets cameback behind the running of Casey Hancock. The junior tailback will show some hard nosed running into the second secondary for big yards on this carry.
[super=50-Eastern Montgomery/22/Craig Co./21;]

Then with a third and goal, he'll hit the goal and make his way into the endzone for the score and Craig County takes the lead, but Eastern Montgomery would come back for the 22 to 21 win.
