A very pleasant good evening to you one and all and welcome to another night of Friday Football Extra. As always it is our honor to have you give a part of your weekend for us. In the next half hour we'll travel to 15 high schools, retire a jersey and take part in an Outback tailgate party.

But let's get started in the River Ridge where the district's unbeaten front runners squared off tonight. No, I'm not talking about Pulaski and Salem - but rather Cave Spring and Christiansburg.
[graphic=spotlight]

For tonight's Dr. Pepper spotlight game of the week - we head to South Roanoke County and Bogle field where the two 6-and-0 Region Three , division Three squads hooked up in a battle of Super 7 members.

(( Ben Foutz and his Knights took care of business early in the season on the road, so they could host games like this one on their home turf. In the second - Chafin Scott winds up and boots a 23 yard field goal to put the Knights on top 3-to-nothing. Christiansburg would get the ball back , and on a second and 33 from their 20 the Blue Demons' Andrew Hoffer would get it done - lofting one down the left sideline to Jacques LeBoone - who hauls it in for 29 yards to set up a short third down. Five plays later Hoffer goes across the middle of the field. The ball is tipped and number 6 Alex Roth pulls it in for the interception and that will ignite the Knights offensive push. On a second and seven from from the demons 25 - Beau Austin pump fakes once, and then drops the ball right into the hands of Brian Thompson for the score. It's 10-to-nothing at halftime. But coming out of the lockeroom the winds of change started to blow. On a first ten from their 45, Hoffer connects with Terrell Burke across midfield for a nice gain. Six plays later Hoffer goes back to sure thing as Leboone makes the catch on the 18 yard hookup. Leboone just wants it more in the corner of the endzone. The capping off of the nine play 69 yard drive makes it 10-to-7. With 5:55 left in the fourth Christiansburg would complete the comeback as Zach Boyd chips in a 27 yard field goal to tie the game and send it to overtime. In fact it would not be settled until the fourth ovetime. Cave Spring decided to kick the field on a fourth down. Scott hits it to make it 27-to-24 Knights. The Demons then went for the kill. Hoffer and Leboone - as they have all season long - get it down in the clutch. The catch and tiptoe watch into the zone quiets the crowd as the Blue demons stay unbeaten with the 30-to-27 win.))

The Spartans had a 21-to-10 lead to start the second half. They would quickly turn a Titan turnover into more points. Matt Shawver hands off to Andre Hairston and he will take it around the right end and right into the endzone untouched with the help of a big cut to make it 28-to-10. After another Titans' turnover - this one inside the Hidden Valley 10 - Shawver fires over the middle to Bryan Webb. He makes the grab and gets in to make it 35-to-10. Salem would do it again. This time from the their own 25, Shawver drops back and goes deep. He connects D'Juan Smith - the speedster - makes the great catch and stretches out theplay for 38 yards and first. In the fourth, Salem would finish it off as Joey Daniels pounds it in for six more.

At halftime - 10 year old Matthew Vaught attempts this 20 yard field for a six month supply of hot wings - and Matt shows almost enough leg - but handles the setback well telling out crew - "I'm a cheeseburger man." We pick it up in the third with Pulaski clinging to a 7-to-nothing lead and the artist formerly known as the Indians on the move. From the Cougars 46 Matt Woods takes the handoff to the right side and does his best Superman impersonation as he flies over two guys for 12 yards on the play. But the Cougars found the Cryptomite as Woods coughs up the ball and Pulaski recovers to stop the drive. The Cougars would take advantage of the turnover as Kevin Crouse takes off and goes 51 yards to put the Cougars on top 14-to-nothing on the touchdown run at the end of the third. Now in the fourth, Crouse would continue to carry his team, as he breaks a tackle at the line of scrimmage, and he will not stop until he is brought down at the Bruins 23 yard line. A few plays later on a third and one, he goes off tackle and Pulaski

Not bad for an option team that goes to the air, on average, only about 5 times per game.
O.B. Chris:
Blake took part in every play against the Lancers, with the exception of Liberty kickoffs and punts. His defensive prowess was a lifesaver for the Minutemen. Blake recovered two Amherst fumbles inside the five yard line, and picked off a pass early in the fourth quarter.
