Good evening everybody and welcome once again to Friday Football Extra. It is week 10 of the regular season and by the time this month is over, we'll be down to the final four in the state in all six classifications. In the next 30 minutes we'll check out 14 games many of which had serious playoff implications tonight.
[GRAPHIC=CAVE/PULASKI]

We begin with two teams in the River Ridge battling for playoff position in both division four and division three as Cave Spring hosted Pulaski County. Both teams had to have the blinders on tonight as Pulaski gets Salem next week and the Knights take on their rivals from Hidden Valley.

[SUPER=53-Roanoke Co./Pulaski Co. vs. Cave Spring;]

The game was down to the wire, but it was still somehwat overshadowed by the return of Tyler Lumsden. The former all-state pitcher for the Knights who is now working his way up in the big leagues with the White Sox had his jersey number 21 retired tonight.

We pick things up with less than a minute left in the first half and Cave on top 14-to-nothing. Kevin Crouse gets a key score for the Cougars right before intermission as he hauls in this 37 yard pass to make it 14-to-7. Now in the third, Crouse would continue to bring the Cougars back as he heads to the sideline and heads to the endzone. It's now a 14-to-14 game in the third. At the end of the third, Danny Aiken will step up for the Knights as he takes the Beau Austin pass over the middle and he turns in scores. But the extra point was blocked and it's 20-to-14 Knights. Now in the fourth with six minutes left in the game, Crouse gets his third TD of the night as he sweeps in off the right side to make it a 21-to-20 Pulaski lead after the extra point. Cave would come back and get in field goal range. And with four seconds left on the clock - the 33 yard attempt by Chafin Scott sails wide right.

The Pulaski County Cougars survive tonight to beat Cave 21-to-20.

It was a good night to cuddle and share some hot chocolate as temperatures in the New River Valley hit the low 40s. We pick it up with Hidden Valley on top 13-to-nothing in the third and the Titans looking to score some more, but the Christiansburg defense tightens and stops quarteback Tyler Coyer. On the next play, the Titans go for three and number 15 Kyle Curbow hits the field goal from 24 yards out to give the Titans a 16-to-nothing lead. Christiansburg would try to come alive and pull off another of its patented comebacks. Andrew Hoffer to Jacques LeBoone on the 22 pick-up for the Blue Demons. Later in that same drive, Hoffer looks to the endzone, but his pass is picked off by Coyer for the touchback as the Titans rise up and stop the Demons.

Glenvar would try to get the first strike of the night as Devin Chappell hands off to Carter Brown, who will plow his way through the line, and not go down until he picks up 27 yards on the carry. The two will work the exchange again, and this time Brown will take it in the for the score from a 12 odzne yards out to make it 7-to-0. The Eagles defense would take flight later in the first and stop a Glenvar scoring chance as Chappell's pass is picked off by Travis West, who returns it 23 yards.

But Phillips can't a foot inbounds and it's ruled incomplete. The Chargers would come up empty on that drive. On fourth and 20, Crause is sacked by the swift one - Casey Hancock for a 15 yard loss and the Rockets take over. Crause would get his revenge later in the quarter as he keeps the ball off the left side and he will roll for 40 yards down the sideline. He fumbled at the end of the play recovered at the Craig 30.

[SUPER=53-Low Moor/William Fleming vs. Alleghany; :00]

Keith Smith and his Colonels built a 14-nothing lead in the third quarter thanks in part to that stout defense. Alleghany quarterback Lonnie Allen has his team on the move, but the Colonels Ronnie Thompson stops the drive with an interception at the Fleming 31 yard line. The Colonels then scored three times in the 4th quarter. Twice, quarterback Dere Hicks found receiver Steve Robertson for scores including this 50-yard touchdown pass with 8 and a half minutes to play as the Colonels built the lead to 27-to-nothing. The Fleming defense kept the Mountaineers out of the end zone. Fleming's Isiah Gears rolls through to sack Allen for a loss as the Colonels defense records a shut out. Fleming then finished off the scoring in the final minutes of the game as Charles Carrington blasts in from five yards out. The Colonels set up a showdown with William Byrd for the district title next week by taking out Alleghany 34-to-nothing.

Bob Patterson Stadium hosted the 2004 Homecoming court tonight as Heather Wickham is crowned queen! We pick it up in the third, with Byrd on top 14-to-nothing. From the Cavs' 20, Billy Ray Welch keeps off the right side and he will dig his way to 11 yards on the carry. A few plays later, Welch will take it in from the three and the Terriers increas their advantage to a comfortable 21-to-nothing. The Cavs would start off the fourth from their own 20, and Matt Witt will dish to Devon Wood, and he takes it of the right side. Devon will break all kinds of tackles, cut back across the grain and he will not stop until he goes 80 yards to the house to make it a 21-to-7 game. The Cavs would keep coming in the fourth. Witt goes up top and over the middle, but he finds Byrd's Billy Ray Welch - who gets the pick and he will bring it back up the near side near midfield.

The folks in central Virginia were not spared the blast of cold weather tonight, but ths game was smoking. We pick it up in the third with Jefferson Forest's Michael Martin hands off to Mondreus Oakley, who breaks through the defense and Oakley has it made in the shade as he takes it up the sideline 91 yards for the score to make it 28-to-26 Amherst. Now in the fourth, The Lancers try to get some of that back as Pierre Tinsley hands off to Jonathan Rose, and he will take it up the middle untouched on the six yard gallop. It's now 34-to-26 Amherst. Forest would not go away as Deontae Cobb will make this short pass to Michael Martin, who will do the rest scoring from 20 yards out. They get the two point conversion and we're all tied at 34-all. But Amherst just would not be denied tonight.

In the second quarter, Liberty's OB Blake and Michael Ryner have trouble with the exchange, and Brookville's Ryan Jackson makes the recovery for the Bees. Brookvile's Jamar Loveless would then try to solve the Liberty "D" through the air as he looks to Chris Bateman. The two hook up for 19 yards on this play.

The Bengals defense would get the party started as the Tunstall quarterback is sacked by Nick Hairston for a loss of eight on the play. The Trojans would have to punt. But they mess it up and Vinnie DeGiovanni recovers for the Bengals in Tunstall territory. Tunstall would hold, only to hand the ball right back as Brandon Johnson picks off the Jeff Jefferson pass with the showstring grab.

(( Everything about Kevin Crouse against Christiansburg was big. The game was big, matching two teams with combined records of 13 and 1. The super soph's numbers were big. 20 carries, 270 yards rushing and four touchdownss. Two of his TD runs were big, 69 and 79 yards each. In fact the only thing little about Crouse it seems..is his nick name. ((:))
Crouse also has a nick name for his ratehr enthusiastic coach. ((:))
All kidding aside, Christiansburg was a prime example of the relationship between player and coach as Turner gave the Blue Demons a heavy dose of Crouse. ((:)) Crouse stands only 5 foot 9 but packs 205 pounds on to that frame whcih makes him a bruising fullback, but he also hurt the Blue Demons with his speed. ((:)) ((:)) ((STEVE MASON:)) ((:))
Crouse also had 19 touchdowns through 8 weeks of the season. The football star numbers don't match the player, who is alos the Cougars thrid leading tackler at linebacker, plays on special teams and, according to Turner, is as good as any practice player the coach has had in his 15 year career. ((:)) ((:))
Crouse says, he models his game after Pittsburgh Steelers Bus Jerome Bettis and hopes his powerful wheels will take him into the college football ranks. Steve Mason Frida Football Extra.))
