Good evening everybody and welcome to Friday Football Extra on a what has turned out to be wild, jam packed night. Besides the battle of unbeatens and undefeated upsets - this cold night is also giving us cameos from John Elway and Kool and the Gang.
[GRAPHIC=PH/FRANKLIN]

But we begin tonight at Victory Stadium where the Patrick Henry Patriots mixed it up in their Western Valley district opener with Franklin County.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Roanoke/Franklin Co. vs. Patrick Henry; :00]

It was homecoming tonight at Patrick Henry - as Cory Muse was crowned king and Kostayne Link the queen. And when you show up for the festivities at the stadium you better be ready for a flood of fabric. We pick it up at the very end of the second quarter. Franklin County's D.J. Willis will drop back and find a wide open Ronny Edwards for the touchdown. The 20 yard strike makes it 25-to-nothing at halftime. PH would go in at the half to get warmed up, and warm up they did. Antwan Green picks the ball up on his own 11, and watch him bust right up into the pack and then to the right side. He's going all the way for the score to make it 25-to-6.
Five plays later Franklin County gets back on the board as Willis rolls to his right and finds Hunter Naff, who completes the hit and spin and rolls in from the 36. It's now 32-to-6 Eagles. Franklin County was threatening again in the third
[SUPER=50-Franklin Co./38/Patrick Henry/6;]

when Willis's pass is tipped and picked off by Seth Chapman, but Franklin County rolls to the 38 to 6 win.

About the only age not affected by the cold tonight was this demographic on hand for GW! In the third, GW's Cameron Martin tries to hit John Gregory, but instead his pass is picked off by Vincent Henderson, who takes it back 25 yards for the Toppers. In the fourth, Martin would redeem himself as he handsoff to Haylen Murphy - who heads to the outside and scores from 11 yards out to make it 17-to-6 GW on top. Glass's Ian Holmes would try to lead a comeback as he finds Matt Taylor, but he is rocked just as the ball arrives. It bounces into the hands of Marlon Walton who runs it back 20 yards to set up another score. Martin would then handoff to Anthony Jacobs for

Two more unbeatens hooked up tonight in the River Ridge as the surprise of the season - Christiansburg hosted Salem - a program it has never been able to master on the football field.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Christiansburg/Salem vs. Christiansburg; :00]

The temperatures were also a little frigid with a nasty win tonight in Christiansburg - tough on people and flags. We pick it up in the fourth with Salem holding onto a seemingly comfortably 35-to-21 lead - but as we've seen all season with Christiansburg no deficit is too big to overcome. Andrew Hoffer sneaks in from the one to make it 35-to-28. Then when two and a half minutes left in the game, Hoffer will hand off to Terrell Burks who drive in for the score to make it 35-to-34. The Blue Demons set up for the kick to get it to overtime, but Zach Boyd rares up and passes to Nick Gill on the fake to make it 36-to-35 Blue Demons. Salem would regroup in a hurry and get to the Blue Demons 33 with 40 seconds to go, Matt Shawver's pass to Tony Spradlin is picked off by Jordan Collins. Christiansburg picks up one of the biggest wins in school history
[SUPER=50-Salem/35/Christiansburg/36;]

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Pulaski Co./Hidden Valley vs. Pulaski Co.; :00]

It was homecoming at Kenneth Dobson stadium as the marching band stepped to the sounds of Canterbury Tales. The Cougars' defense also would make a little noise as the Titans' Tyler Coyer is sacked by Chad Thompson for a ten yard loss ending a Titan threat. In the second quarter, the Titans would come back looking to throw again. This time Coyer's pass is knocked down by Kevin Crouse. Later in the drive, the Titans would be forced to punt. Crouse would reel in the kick. He doesn't get far before he's popped. The ball comes out and Josiah Goins picks it out of midair, but also pays the price. But Goins would hold on to the ball. And that was big because the Titans fool everyone on a fourth and inches as Coyer rares up and hits Jud Carte. The senior captian will not be denied as he takes it 25

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Roanoke Co./Blacksburg vs. Cave Spring; :00]

The stadium was anything but tropical tonight as hot chocolate sames were brisk. The redhot Knights are deep in Bruins' territory early when Beau Austin throws to his right and he connects with Brian Thompson on a sideline route for good yardage and a first down. Two plays later, Alex Lemmer gets caught up in a scrum, and he will just keep moving and eventually squirt out to the left side and hit the endzone to make it 7-to-nothing Knights. More Knights in the second quarter. David Reddick's the big tight end, catches it at the top of the key and takes it baseline to baseline for the 84 yard score to make it 14-to-nothing.

The Knights roll to the 35 to 7 win to improve to 6-and-0 on the season.

Stinger Stadium was full of fans and excitement for a chilly homecoming. But Heritage was ready take the life out of the crowd as Wayne Ford hands off to Cardero Rucker, who breaks through the crowd and into the clear for the 53 yard touchdown. Heritage is on top 7-to-nothing. Still in the first, Heritage is back to punt, but the snap is mishandled and Brookville's Darren McKenzie recovers for the Bees on the Pioneer 11. Three plays later, McKenzie will finish things off when he takes the handoff in from the two to tie the game at 7-all.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=53-Hot Springs/Parry McCluer vs. Bath Co.; :00]

Homecoming 2004 was a chilly on top of Warm Springs Mountain, but a memorable one for the King Chris Martin and the queen Angela Vess. Late in the first quarter, Bath quarterback Joey Krauss will hook up with his wideout Josh Webb on the play and the pitch and catch will move Bath all the way to the one yard line. Jerroun Durrette would finish off the 89 yard drive with the one yard TD. Bath is on top 6-to-nothing. Now in the fourth, the Blue are looking to take the lead with a TD and possibly hand Bath its first district loss since 1999, but Barrett Downs pass on fourth down falls incomplete.
[SUPER=50-Parry McCluer/0/Bath Co./19;]

John Phillips and company would deliver the knockout punch. The former player of the week makes the catch, breaks a tackle and its all daylight from there. Bath beats Parry McCluer 19-to-0 as Phillips gets into the offensive swing four catches for 97 yards.

It was homecoming tonight in Floyd as Windred Beale's unbeaten Buffaloes hosted their friends from just down the road in Riner - the Auburn Eagles.

If you needed another reason to be jealous of the homecoming court - here it is - they got to watch the game inside on this chilly night. Auburn is on the move first from the Floyd 36, Trent Copeland tries to lateral to Anthony Barnes - they can't connect and the crowd knows it's a live ball. Floyd's Raymond Weddle will pick up the ball and take it 64 yards the other direction for the score to make it 6-to-nothing. Floyd's first offensive play of the game would see Daniel Grim look to break out of the pack and run. He gets hit, and fumbles and Dustin McPeak recovers for Auburn. That would lead to a score as Barnes and Copeland

The temperature wasn't the only thing chilly tonight at Bobcat Stadium. Giles led 6-to-3 heading to the third quarter and it would stay tight as Nathan Tanner's 37 yard field goal attempt is blocked by Michael Douglas and the Cats take over. On the very next play Abrain Williams fumbles for Radford and Aaron Gonzalez recovers for the Spartans to get the ball back in the hands of the Single Wingers. Giles would then get busy later in the quarter as Michael Early takes it up the left side from 18 yards out to make it a 13-to-3 game in favor of the visitors. The Spartans were just getting warmed up, as Ricky

The Vikings stormed onto their home turf hoping to make it two wins a row. But the Colonels were looking to get back on track. Mijuan Curtis fields the first punt of the game, and he will take it right through the traffic, pick up some blocks and cut back to the far corner for a 95 yard return. It's 7-to-nothing Fleming. The Vikings were able to move into Fleming territory thanks to a turnover, but Northside returns the favor as Javonte Ashford scoops it up and he is gone on another long score. 83 yards to the house and it's 13-to-nothing. The Colonels just keep coming. This time Dere Hicks hands-off to Dwayne Priest who cuts across the grain and in for an offensive score to make it 21-to-nothing. Then with two minutes left in the first - the Hicks takes it in himself.

From just inside the 20, Landon Johnson will hand off to Billy Ray Welch, and he will take it off the left side for 10 yards. A couple of plays later, Welch will take it in off the left side for the Terrier TD. It's 26-to-7 Byrd on top.

The Colonels had just taken a 4 point lead, but the Eagles captain fielded the ensuing kickoff at his own 6, found daylight and motored 94 yards to the endzone for the game winning score.
Ronnie: Billy:
Edwards has played much of the season with a bum shoulder and a banged up knee. His offseason work in the weight room has helped him fight thru the injury bug. His bench press is up to 320 pounds, but more impressive is the extra gear he now possesses. The 5-9, 180 pound senior is also a star on the Eagles track team, who knows that speed kills.
