Welcome everybody to Friday Football extra, Week number 11, the final week of the regular season.
Once again Mother Nature has played a role in the action, but we were still able to round up nine big games for you on this edition of Friday Football Extra.
Plus, at the end's of the show we'l take a unofficial look at the upcoming playoffs and see how things stack up in Division One through 6.
SS=Giles/shawsville


But first we begin the highlights up in Giles County where the temperatures dropped right along with visiting Shawsville.
(----------------)
VO-NAT ENG#
SUPER=51-Pearisburg/Shawsville vs. Giles; :00


Not even a cold wind and rain could keep the die hard Spartan fans home tonight in Pearisburg.
But Shawsville looked sharp early in the game as Chris Graham. the former player of the week, turns in a 37 yard run for a big first down for the Shawnees.
Giles then turned up the heat on defense as Brian Caswell attempts to catch this pass, but instead catches Matt Whitehead's hit instead. Now that really feels good on a cold night!
The Spartans offense then got busy with Chris Ratcliffe tiptoes in from a couple of yards away to make it 8-to-nothing.
SUPER=52-Shawsville/14/Giles/42;


Steve Ragsdale's team would light up the scoreboard one more time, as Shawn Vaught gets the call and scores from five yards away and Giles wins the Three Rivers and completes another unbeaten season with the 42 to 14 win over Shawsville.

We pick up the action in the second quarter with the Comets keeping it surprisingly close.

But in the third, GW's Chanceton Rogers takes it in on the short run to put Danville in front by 10 at 24-to-14.
In the fourth quarter, Jackson will toss another pass, this one to Michael Chapell and he will hand it to Donte Medley, who then passes it back to CHappell for the TD. The razzle-dazzle cuts the lead to 24-to-21.

This man, Derrick Younger had one of the toughest jobs of the night - just keeping the ball dry!!
But the Generals could have scored with a flat ball tonight the way they played, as Ty Poe goes 59 yards into the house for a 34-to-6 lead in the third.
Less than three minutes later, on second and goal from the 30, Eugene Price takes it across the stripe one more time to make it a 40-to-6 Generals lead in the third.
The Wildcats had little chance in this one as they were also their own worse enemy as Landrum Sydnor fumbles at the four, and the Generals recover to seal the end zone.

The Brookville cheerleaders have had a lot to cheer about this season as they got fired up for they hoped would be the team's ninth win of the year tonight.
The band members were also raring to go despite having to don the rain gear tonight.
And again, the "Bee-Fense" had plenty of sting tonight as they stop the Red Devils running game cold.
On the other hand, the Bees running game wore the Red Devils defense down. Edwin Brown gets great blocking on this 12 yard burst up the middle moving the ball inside the Rustburg 10.
Three plays later, Chris Nicholas takes it over from the one yard line to give the Bees a 7-to-nothing lead.

A stiff breeze blowing in Salem tonight as Willis White has his Spartans playing some stiff ball.
On a fourth and long, Rockbridge's Scott Sorrells can't handle the bad snap and the Spartans Matt Anderson lowers his head and puts a stiff hit on the punter.
Salem's offense would waste little time, with R.J. Beckwith showing his string arm in the wind, as he hooks up with Jeff Akers on a 30 yard reception to the Rockbridge 9 yard line.
Two plays later, Matt Anderson takes the ball in the house and it's 7 to zip Salem.
