Good evening everybody and welcome to Friday Football Extra, which for the second time this year is more like Robin Reed's Weather School.
SS=postponements


After dealing with Hurricane Fran back on September 6th, tonight we have the honor of dodging high winds and heavy rains, and a 25 county Tornado watch caused by a wicked cold front.
SS=GLASS/DANVILLE


A number of the night's marquee games were literally blown away including the Western district war between Glass and George Washington,

And the PIedmont battle of unbeatens involving the number 3 and 4 teams in our Super Seven, Martinsville and Magna Vista.

Brookville and Jefferson Forest were also primed for a showdown in the Seminole tonight, but MOther Nature had other plans.
A disappointed Jefferson Forest coach Bob Christmas surveyed the damage to Cavalier field after the decision was made to call off the game around seven.
But his main concern is that his troops maintain their focus for Saturday night.

Lord Botetourt kept pace with the Spartans tonight by pummeling Christiansburg 40-to-12 in a game played down in Daleville.
(----------------)
VO-NAT eng#
SUPER=51-Daleville/Christiansburg vs. Lord Botetourt; :00


On this breezy night in Botetourt we begin with Jamie Gilliland being named Homecoming King and Ashley George this year's Queen at midfield.
We pick up action in the third with the happy homecoming already in high gear. Christiansburg quarterback Matt Wright calls Eric Schumucker's number and he takes it up the middle, breaks tackles and cuts into the clear for the 44 yard score. But Botetourt still leads it 26-to-6.
Late in the third, the Cavs would mount a 99 and a half yard drive in 10 plays capped by Seth Myers pass to Jamie Connors in the flat. He does the rest going 60 yards for the score as Botetourt makes it 33-to-6.
SUPER=52-Christiansburg/12/Lord Botetourt/40;


What would a Botetourt set of highlights be without Wesley Cox? He takes the handoff from 18 yards out and does his thing, diving over for the score as Lord Botetourt improves to 6-and-1 with the 40-to-12 win.

After upsetting Salem last week, William Byrd was back in action tonight looking for some consistency and a win as the Terriers took on Alleghany in Low Moor.
(----------------)
VO-NAT ENG#
SUPER=51-Low Moor/William Byrd vs. Alleghany; :00


The wind chill was a factor in Low Moor as the Alleghany fans huddled and the Byrd fans bundled up.
But the coaches were not immune to the elements as Terrier assistant coach Fred Wagner used plastic bags as gloves and a poncho as a sleeveless jacket!
But the wind wasn't the only thing howling at Mountaineer stadium as freshman running back O.J. Thomason would run wild accounting for 231 yards of Byrd's 292 yards of offense.
He would nine yards down the right side on this play setting up number 33

SUPER=51-Rockbridge/Blacksburg vs. Rockbridge Co.; :00


Jamie Talbott offered some last minutes words of encouragement to his team as it got ready to take on the Indians.
Midway through the first, the Indians take advantage of a turnover as Tommy LeForce hits a wide open Bobby Graham in the endzone on the 13 yard TD pass to make it 6-to-nothing.
Rockbridge would answer that with some aerial artistry of its own as Travis Clark finds a double covered Matt Pierce for a 30 yard gain.
But another Wildcat turnover killed the drive and Blacksburg
SUPER=52-Blacksburg/37/Rockbridge Co./0;


breaks out and breaks bad with a 37 to 0 win over Rockbridge, which just two weeks ago was unbeaten in district play.

Welcome back to Friday Football Extra as we now prepare to check out the limited amount of Triple-A action taking place on Week 8.
SS=pulaski/fleming


Let's begin where mother nature rarely interferes with the happenings on FRiday night's in the Fall - Kenneth Dobson stadium in Pulaski, where the Cougars entertained Fleming.
(----------------)
VO-NAT eng#
SUPER=51-Pulaski Co./Wm. Fleming vs. Pulaski Co.; :00


Fleming boss George "Killer" Miller warmed up his team to get ready for the second half in this one.
But Pulaski would build on its 25-to-8 lead early in the third as Craig Hodge gallops in from 51 yards out to put the Cougars comfortably in front at 32-to-8.
Fleming would turn to the air, but Craig Hodge would continue to play head and shoulders above the competition as he had all season with the interception and the return to the Fleming 49.
Hodge would then turn the TD into another big score as he turns on the juice and gets into the zone from 32 yards out to make it 39-to-8.
SUPER=52-William Fleming/14/Pulaski Co./39;


The Colonels would get this one yard Jamare Gill score late in the game, but it was only cosmetic as the Cougars move to 2-and-0 in the RVD with the 39-to-14 win.

Patrick Henry and Cave Spring also opened the Roanoke Valley district portions of their schedules tonight.
(----------------)
VO-NAT ENG#
SUPER=51-Roanoke/Cave Spring vs. Patrick Henry; :00


The Patriots came into Victory Stadium tonight like tropical storm Lillie to joust with the Knight on a water logged field.
On the very first play from scrimmage the Pats would hit the ground running as Dennis Dunnaville keeps through the middle and down the line before he's brought down 54 yards later.
A couple of plays later, Dunnaville calls on James HIckenbotham to carry the mail in from 10 yards out to put the Patriots in front to stay.
SUPER=52-Cave Spring/13/Patrick Henry/35;


Patrick Henry would keep the ball on the ground as Shawn Akers goes up the middle and squirts out 15 yards as PH has a happy homecoming with a 35-to-13 win over the Knights.

At least former Franklin County head coach Horace Green didn't have to stand out in the rain and get wet tonight. Afterall, he endured his own storm earlier in the week when he was fired.

The Eagles were on the road tonight without Green, but with former Cave Spring head coach and recent Ferrum College Hall of Fame inductee Jerry LIttle at the helm.

the Fighting Blues of Parry McCluer and the James River Knights played for supremacy the Pioneer.
(----------------)
VO-NAT eng#
SUPER=51-Buena Vista/James River vs. Parry McCluer; :00


A muddied Camden Field wasn't enough to deter the Blues in this one.
The team long known for its ball control offense and running game, would enjoy a 7-to-6 halftime margin.
But surprise, The Blue would go to the air midway through the third quarter as Donald Schley finds tight end Jason Smider wide open for a seven yard TD pass and the eventual game winning score.
James River would get back in the game and in then back out of it, as Travis Blankenship fumbles at the goal line on this sweep and the Blues recover to avoid the potential tie.
SUPER=52-James River/6/Parry McCluer/14;


The Knights would have one last chance to tie the game, but Blankenship is sacked on fourth down and Parry McCluer holds on for the 14-to-6 win.

Even though a lot of rain had moved through the Highlands late this afternoon, the sprinklers were on and working as the adjacent Casey field baseball diamond took a shower.
Put the Cougars didn't have tie to watch or drink a drop of water tonight as they took out 6 weeks of frustration on the Rockets with Grover Price moving the ball down the field with this 20 yard gain.
Several plays later, number 86 Tracey Walker takes the pill on the reverse, and he will pick up 14 yards down to the Rockets 27 yard line.
SUPER=52-Craig Co./8/Covington/29;


On the very next play John Woodzell will call on Antonie Broadnax, and he takes it up the middle for the score as Covington wins it's first game of the year with a 29 to 8 win over Craig County.

Some more of those diehard fans showed up tonight in Riner as the Eagles tried to brave the wind and the cold.
Glenvar looked good early in this one as HUnter Allen takes the handoff and picks up 18 yards and some nice blocking on the carry up the middle.
But on a fourth and short, Auburn's defense would step and make a big stop as the front line and linebackers do a good job of pursuing and stopping the sweep.
But head coach Brian Hooker made a few adjustments between quarters and the Highlanders came out in the second fired up.
