Welcome everybody to Friday Football Extra and week number four of the
Highlights of 14 games of straight ahead on this edition of FFE so, settle
down and let's get busy.
We begin in Moneta, for many years the home of a perennial doormat, a place
where teams would drop in wipe their feet, and pick up an easy win!
But folks times are a changing, and tonight the Staunton River Golden Eagles
continued their transformation as they hosted Alleghany.

it 35-to-6 the River on top.
Alleghany came right back on its next possession and made it 25-to-12 with
Brian Carroll scoring off Shannon Johnson's handoff on a cris-crossing dash en
route to the 76 yard TD. And it's a 13 point deficit.

Travis Preston takes Chad Blackstock's handoff and rumbles 21 yards to the
endzone. It's 8-to-nothing in the first.
Then with 2:20 left in the first quarter, Blackstock would call his own
number on the option and this time he goes in from 7 yards out to make it
The Warriors would keep cooking in the second quarter, as Preston again
bullies his way in. The 15 yard TD helps send the Warriors on their way to a 58

where the Cavs welcomed their fourth straight Group Three-A member, in Amherst
SUPER=51-Forest/Amherst Co. vs. Jefferson Forest; :00
These two had had their moments as Seminole rivals over the past five season

setting up a TD.

mat for the E.C.Glass Hilltoppers.
SUPER=51-Roanoke/E.C. Glass vs. William Fleming; :00

SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./Salem vs. Cave Spring; :00
The Pride of Salem show band was on the march tonight before the game as they
strutted their stuff in pregame.

the score and Salem rolls over Cave Spring tonight, the final 33 to 14.

offensive workhorse sets up the Chris Nicholas touchdown and it's 6-to-nothing

the Chatham Offense.

this fourth and one into a 41 yard touchdown around right end.

five and Hairston will pass to Donnell Stockton for the first down on the nice

Demons hosting Radford.
SUPER=51-Christiansburg/Radford vs. Christiansburg; :00
Christiansburg's Liz Whitworth was crowned Homecoming Queen tonight, but she
had a tough time outshining this rivalry.

SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./Floyd Co. vs. Glenvar; :00
Coach Winfred Beale and his Buffaloes came to Glenvar looking to extend a
special welcome to the Three Rivers district's newest member.
But Floyd would extend too much of a welcome early as Matt Bishop fumbles the
exchange on the reverse and Glenvar's Dale Bowman picks up the ball and goes 40
yards to make it a 6-to-nothing Glenvar lead in the first.
The Buffs would shoot themselves in the foot again as a bad snap on this
punt, results in the kick being blocked. Lynwood Twine picks up the ball and
he scores to make it 12-to-nothing.
Twine would then convert the two point conversion and Glenvar takes a 14 to
nothing. The Highlanders beat
Floyd tonight 36 to 8.

with a come from behind 21-to-14 win over Virginia Episcopal.

(( Through the first three weeks of the regular season, no one played defense
like GW Danville's first string unit.
Last Friday the Eagles beat Cardoza high school 40-to-nothing as the
defensive starters kept their shutout string, that back to the preseason
jamborees in tact.
The Eagles gave up just nine first downs and shut down quarterback Altaveus
Cash, who after throwing for 441 yards and 5 scores against Chambersburg,
Pennsylvania, only managed 172 yards and not one TD against GW.
