Welcome everybody to Friday Football Extra and week number three of the
regular season, that has been anything but regular so far.
After dealing with Hurricane Fran we now have Friday the 13th.
We also have 16 games for you tonight including a number of old fashioned
And one of my all-time favorite in the area is the Covington-Alleghany war in
the highlands, that renewed itself tonight in Low Moor.
SUPER=51-Low Moor/Covington vs. Alleghany; :00
Alleghany coach Max Lowe was hoping to avenge last year's loss to the
We pick up late in the third with Alleghany on top 7-to-nothing and looking
for more, Shannon Johnson would set up the game clinching TD with this 19 yard
run as the Mounties took a 14-to-nothing lead.
The Cougars would not give up though as William Stewart hits Tracy Walker on
this four yard TD and Covington cuts the lead to 14-to-7.
Alleghany would seal its victory as Ron Bennett gets the interception and the
Mountaineers win the first ever Emory Brackmon Cup named in honor of the late
sports writer who did so much in the highlands.

Up in Narrows tonight, bragging rights in Giles County were settled as the
Green Wave welcomed the Spartans down 460.
SUPER=51-Narrows/Giles vs. Narrows; :00
The slimmed down Don Lowe, who has dropped over 100 pounds since last season
was definitely in shape for tonight's game.
But early in the first, Giles Chris Hutchison would make a statement as Giles
caps a three play opening drive with a 28 yard TD run. 7-to-nothing Giles.
Narrows would have only one first down in the first quarter, coming on this
three yard run by David Turner.
Giles meanwhile was virtually unstoppable as Matt Whitehead takes off and
takes it in the zone from 23 yards
and the Spartans remain unbeaten with the 38 to 12 win over the Green Wave.
at Ragsdale field.
Down in Buchanan, the battle of Botetourt was on this evening as the James
River Knights entertained their good buds from Daleville, the LOrd Botetourt
SUPER=51-Buchanan/Lord Botetourt vs. James River; :00
On a beautiful September night the Knights were hoping the sun were set on
their big rivals.
In the first quarter, the Cavs line up for a 22 yard field goal, but the kick
is blocked! The Cavs recover and try to get it in, but they cough it up and
James River finally recovers on its own 3.
The Knights Brian LeFlore would then try to get the River some breathing
room, but he fumbles and the Cavs recover at the three.
SUPER=52-Lord Botetourt/35/James River/7;
Wesley Cox would clean up the mess by blasting in for the score and Lord
Botetourt whips James River 35 to 7.
The Glenvar Highlanders may have changed districts for this season, but they
haven't changed counties.
And tonight Western Roanoke County met Eastern Roanoke County as the Byrd
Terriers came a barking.
SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./William Byrd vs. Glenvar; :00
Terrier fans have a lot to cheer about as William Byrd manhandled the
We pick it up in the fourth quarter.
Seth Noonkester on his own 33, drops back to pass, Byrd's Frank English
steps in front of the Glenvar receiver and cruises untouched into the endzone.
Terriers lead 24 to 7.
Byrd's Frank English on offense this time drops back looks, looks and looks,
finally finding Terrier receiver Matt McGuire for the long gain.
And on the next play, first and 10 on the Glenvar 15 yard line, Freshman
O.J. Thomason squeezes through the SUPER=52-William Byrd/30 /Glenvar/7 ;
crowd and breaks into the endzone for the Terriers final score.

Say what you will about Jefferson Forest head coach Bob Christmas, but don't
accuse him of playing a weak schedule this season.
After opening with PH and Cave Spring, tonight the Cavs rolled into Lynchburg
to battle Glass.
SUPER=51-Lynchburg/J. Forest vs. E.C. Glass; :00
We pick this one up in the third with Glass on top 14-to-7.
Jefferson Forest's Jerton Evans hands off to Nick Mistreta and he picks up 23
yards on a fourth down play with sme outstanding running to keep the Cavaliers
Two plays alter Evans pitches it to Frank Wade who goes into the endzone to
tie the game at 14-all.
But NOOOOO! There is a penalty and the score is wiped out.
SUPER=52-Jefferson Forest/7/E.C. Glass/14;
Glass would dodge that bullet, but still shoot itself in the foot!
In the fourth, Cedric Ritchie fumbles the ball, Evans picks it up to give
the cavs one more try. But Glass hangs on for the 14-to-7 win.
Fellow Seminole member Heritage was on the road as well tonight down in Rocky
Mount, taking on Horace Green's Franklin County Eagles.
SUPER=51-Rocky Mount/Heritage vs. Franklin Co.; :00
The Eagles went in at halftime on top 10-to-7.
But it was all Heritage to start the second half as Dwayne Banks takes the
ball up the middle and turns on the jets in route to a 69 yard score to make it
Heritage went up 21-to-10, before the Eagles mounted their own comeback late
in the game.
Matt Maxey, who a kicked a 51 yard field goal in the first half, hits from
27 yards out to cut the lead to 21-to-13.
Franklin County would then turn an onsides kick into another score as
Henry Eggleston gets in from the 2, and its 21-to-19 after the failed 2.

After getting ripped by Heritage on Monday night, Jim Hickam had his
Northside Vikings back on the road this evening in Bedford County playing the
SUPER=51-Bedford Co./Northside vs. Liberty; :00
Former Tech defensive back Mike Scharnus was all fired up on this cool night
And his team would take advantage of a first quarter Northside mistake as
Jeremy CHapman blocks the punt and the Minutemen fall on it in the endzone for
a 7-to-nothing lead.
Liberty's defense was as stout as the special teams as Xavier Lee is sacked
by Rick Wright to keep the Vikings stymied.
On offense Liberty quarterback Dwayne Butler goes over the top to Robert
Carson to make it 13-to-nothing Liberty, and the Minutemen win it
24 to 6.
We're only halfway finished with tonight's 16 game smorgasbord, trips to

SUPER=64-Lord Botetourt/35/James River/7;
Welcome back everybody to Friday Football Extra.
There were no doubt some heavy hearts on the visitors side of the field
tonight in Collinsville as Staunton River played FC.
Earlier today a Staunton River student was killed in a car accident on her
way to school.
SUPER=51-Collinsville/Staunton River vs. F. Collinsville; :00
And appropriately the game began under a peaceful sky this evening down in
Once things got started, FC's Chad Turner rolls out and pitches to #36 Kevin
Franklin who will break free and motor through the defense 65 yards for the
opening score and a 7-to-nothing lead.
The Golden Eagles would answer right back on their next series when Danny
Thomas hands the ball to Kevin Martin - and he's blasting through the middle,
into the clear, down the near sideline and in for the score. 7-TO-6 FC after
the missed two point try.
FC would keep this track meet going padding its lead with Turner dropping
back and hitting Franklin through the air for a 64 yard Cavalier TD as Staunton
River beats Fieldale 57 to 27.
A couple of former Piedmont rivals who are now in different districts hooked
up tonight in Chatham, as Martinsville invaded the home of the Dogwood district
SUPER=51-Chatham/Martinsville vs. Chatham; :00
The Bulldogs would get things cooking in the first quarter as Jess Wade gives
it to mantee Venable for the five yard TD run and it 7-to-nothing Bulldogs.
Chatham would get off the mat and answer that punch with a six yard score as
Desmond Pruitt passes to Terry Harris and it's 7-to-6 after the failed 2 point
But the Bulldogs were up for the challenge as, Pruitt's pass is picked off
by Danny Wade - his pick sets up another Martinsville score as
Wade hands it to Venable again and he scores his second TD of the evening and
the Bulldogs beat Chatham 49 to 18.
After opening the season with two losses, Cave Spring was back at Knights
field tonight home sweet home could provide a victory against a Blacksburg team
that was also winless.
SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./Blacksburg vs. Cave Spring; :00
And the Knights had plenty of support as youth cheerleaders from Southwest
County helped turn up the volume in the stands tonight.
And the Knights dominated the game early, on second and 10 on Blacksburg's
33 Brad Nichols sweeps right, weaves his way through traffic and puts Cave
Spring in scoring position.
Two plays later Travis Cooper pulls in this Corey Paxton pass for the 16
yard scoring play and the Knights are on the board first.
But the Indians would put up a fight.
Tommy LaForce hands off to Michael Davis. Davis barrels through the line
for 35 yards setting up the Blacksburg score.
A two point conversion gives the Indians the edge over Cave Spring 15-to-14.
In Christiansburg, the Blue Demons welcomed Glynn Carlock and his Graham
G-Men up from Bluefield tonight for some non-district play.
SUPER=51-Christiansburg/Graham vs. Christiansburg; :00
We pick it up in the third with the Demons leading 12-to-7, but Mike Cole was
feeling anything but confident.
And for good reason as the G-Men opened the second half with this Walter
Kennard touchdown run from 11 yard out to put Graham in front 13-to-12.
The G-Men would keep firing in the fourth as Kennard takes off this time and
goes 45 yards into the house and after the failed 2 point try it is 19-to-12.
Graham would completely dominate the second half as they add another score
and smash the Demons 25-to-12.
We'll put some more miles on the truck in just a minute with trips to
Charlottesville, Hot Springs, Danville and Victory Stadium.
But first let's wrap up the scoreboard and get in step with the Bath County
go to scores and band-C

SUPER=64-Dan River/19/Laurel Park/7;
SUPER=64-Bland Co./0/Pocahontas Co./20;
Let's now begin our final set of highlights on week three
with a trip up to Hot Springs where the temperatures were anything but hot
SUPER=51-Hot Springs/East Hardy, WV vs. Bath Co.; :00
The Chargers were energized though for tonight's game hoping to up their
record to 3-and-0 on the season.
On Bath's third offensive play of the game, running back Brandon Woodard
takes the handoff and marches down the left sideline for the 79 yard TD as Bath
take a 7-to-nothing lead.
With less than two minutes left in the quarter, the Cougars would attempt to
claw their way into the endzone, but on 4th and goal - a stingy Bath defense
stops them cold.
SUPER=52-East Hardy, WV/20/Bath County/14;
The Chargers would take possesion and Woodard would take control picked up 54
yards on the run But Bath County is upset by East Hardy, West Virginia 20 to
From Hot Springs to Charlottesville we got where Patrick Evans alma mater,
Albemarle hosted Patrick Henry in a battle of Patriots.
SUPER=51-Charlottesville/Patrick Henry vs. Albemarle; :00
After taking a week off the Patriots were well rested and very focused on
taking out Albemarle early.
And PH did just that, as quarterback Dennis Dunnaville pitches to Richard
Higginbothon who scores his second TD of the night - this time on a 52 yard
dash and PH leads it 14-to-nothing.
Head Coach Ed Scott then tried to work some Friday the 13th magic.
oc- GET A FUMBLE.
And WAH-LAH!!! he would get his wish as Albemarle's punt returner coughs up
the ball, and Mike Stevens scoops it up and runs it in for the 20 yard TD and
it is 20-to-zip. Patrick Henry moves to 2-and-oh on the season with a 39 to 6
win over Albemarle.
More Roanoke Valley-Western district action back closer to home as Fleming
welcomed Larry Smith and the Halifax County Comets to Victory stadium.
SUPER=51-Roanoke/Halifax Co. vs. Wm. Fleming; :00
The Colonel fans were rocking the house down at McLelland Field tonight.
We pick it up with Halifax on top 14-to-13 in the third, and Fleming on the
move. Mondre Burrnette hands the ball off to Dennis Gill who plows through the
line to make 19-to-14 Colonels.
Fleming then went for two and Burnette connects on the pass and it's
In the fourth Comets would get the tie with Carlos Jackson tossing to Michael
Chappell for the TD to tie the game at 21 with 8 minutes to go.
SUPER=52-Halifax Co./24/William Fleming/21;
But late in the fourth Halifax would earn the win as kicker Jeremy Kerly
mails a 48 yard field goal to lift the Comets to a 24-to-21 win over Fleming.

And finally, the super seven's top team George Washington played its third
straight non-district out of state opponent as DC's Cardoza high invaded
SUPER=51-Danville/Cardoza vs. GW Danville; :00
GW would commit a rare turnover as John Dickerson fumbles the handoff from
Chancton Rogers, but Dickerson recovers the ball in the endzone for a very
typical Friday the 13th touchdown.
and it's 21-to-nothing in the second.
Tyrone Robertson the Eagles 6-5 and 270 pound menace would then play the roll
of the fridge and score on one yard plunge to make it 28-to-nothing.
Rogers would then get into the act as he keeps on the 25 yard touchdown and
the Eagles move to 3-and-0 on the season with the 40 to nothing win over

Brookville held Salem to just 71 yard of total offense, 8 first downs, and
only let the Spartans cross midfield twice.
