GRAPHIC=FFE Welcome everyone to Friday


Football Extra. We have finally
reached the Final Four weekend for the
2006 high school football season and it
looks like the weather on Saturday will
be absolutely perfect.

As always thanks for joining us
tonight here on Your Hometown Station.
All of the games this week and next
will be played on Saturday afternoon.

And even with the unexpected loss
of Gretna and William Campbell last
week - six teams from the immediate
Friday Football Extra coverage area are
still in the hunt for state titles.

We'll hear from each school on
tonight's program.


GRAPHIC=AMHERST/BASSETT Our first stop this evening is Amherst


County. The Lancers come into their
Group Two "A" Division 4 State
Semi-Final contest against Bassett on a
10 game winning streak, but it might as
well be 9 straight and then a "Big ole
Circle" around the one last week
against Salem.

Now the challenge for Scott Abell
is to get his team to come back down to

earth and continue on what the folks in
Amherst hope is the road to a State
Championship.

Grant Kittelson caught up with
Amherst somewhere on Cloud 9.

9 rushing touchdowns and 9 more thru

number, is the Bengals youthful
exuberance and their will to win.

JAY GILBERT/BASSETT HEAD COACH:

The gameplan for Gilbert and company is
a simple one, try to slow down a team
that has outscored its 12 opponents 503

to 78, no easy task.

JAY:

Unlike the regular season, Bassett has
won the turnover battle in its two
postseason wins over Magna Vista and
Martinsville, with 7 takeaways to just
2 giveaways.

OQ=....DESERVE EVERY BIT OF IT." << Hidden Valley's first ever
(END SOT) varsity footbal practice was held on


August 5th of 2002.

Back then the challenge wasn't
making it to the playoffs, but rather
just not getting anyone injured in
still open irrigation system or on the
thousands of rocks that littered the
field.

That eclectic group of first year
players laid the foundation for success
and now this year's Titans hope to
reach the promised land.

But to get to the promised land
they must first make it past Richlands.

JR EDWARDS

And there's plenty on which to

focus this week.

The Blue Tornadoes will play
their first ever playoff game in the
Roanoke Valley with a team that is
12-and-0. In those games - Richlands
has outscored the opposition 580 to 90
- and 40 of those were given up in the
playoffs.

JR EDWARDS

On paper the game may look a
mismatch - but consider the following -
Hidden Valley has by far played the
tougher schedule this season - as
Richlands has three wins over Group A
schools.

Plus, the Titans defense hasn't
given up a single points in the
playoffs.

In truth, Coach Ragsdale could
expand that solid play back another

games since losing at home to William
Campbell, and for the season the
Spartans have outscored the opposition
428 to 107 to put the program on track
to win back-to-back titles for the

first time in school history.

STEVE RAGSDALE

If nothing else history tells
Ragsdale that it will take a huge
effort to eliminate Powell Valley and
advance. This will be the fifth time
the two storied programs have met in
the semi-finals - Powell Valley has won
three of the four with the help of
current NFL starting tailbacks Thomas
