The home folks take advantage of a big first half to take control of the game

But the Warriors got a big break when number 8 Ed Britt fumbled the kickoff. the ball shoots into the air and Magna Vista recovers.
Quarterback Chad Blackstock would then score around the right and the Warriors are right back in this thing.
But the comeback would be short lived, as Blackstock and Ceron Penn have a bad exchange on the handoff

A big crowd tonight in Danville for tonight's showdown.
In the second quarter, Tyrone Robertson will score from a yard out on the blast inside to make it 7-to-3 Eagles.
The George Washington defense would then make a statement as Terry Waller sacks Woodbridge quarterback Mike Voss forcing a fumble which is picked dup by Courtney Epps and he takes it in for the TD to make it 14-to-3.
The Eagles defense would continue to soar as Voss's pass is picked off by Tyrone Nunally, and he will take it 75 yards in the opposite direction for another score and a 21-to-3 lead.

SUPER=51-Pulaski Co./Brooke Point vs. Pulaski Co.; :00


The Cougars came down the hill at Kenneth Dobson stadium unaware of what they were about to face.
On Brooke Point's first play from scrimmage, Daniel Davis takes the ball down the right sideline in front of the Pulaski County bench. He will eventually go 86 yards to set up the first TD of the night.
The Black Hawks and Davis would get busy again as Davis takes it 42 yards off the right side, again right in front of the Cougar players again and it's 14-to-nothing.
Pulaski County would finally get on the scoreboard on this 59 yard punt return down the right side by Craig Hodge as he blows by the defenders and cuts the lead to 14-to-7.
5 Turnovers would kill the Cougars tonight. After a fumble Davis races 88 yards - but this time he struts his stuff in front of hits own bench as the Black Hawks take a 20-to-7 lead.
SUPER=52-Brooke Point/42/Pulaski Co./14;


Brooke Point would see everything go its way tonight as evidenced by this Hail Mary at the end of the first half. The ball is batted into the air by Craig Hodge, but it lands right in Davis's hands for the TD.

Let's begin down on the reservation in Rural Retreat where the Indians hosted the Mountain Empire district's Bland County Bears.
(----------------)
VO-NAT eng#
SUPER=51-Rural Retreat/Bland Co. vs. Rural Retreat; :00


After the captains shook hands at midfield it was the Indians who came out with fire in their eyes.
Early in the second quarter with a 3rd and four on the Bears' 17, Indians back Michael Shadley takes the Wayne Terry handoff and he's taking it around the left end for 12 yards, moving it down to the five.
This time Terry will call on number 45 Gene Field, who pushes through the line and in for the score to make it 7-to-zip.
After a Bland County punt the Indians would take over on their own 22, and this time Fields cuts wide around the right side, shield off a couple of Bears tacklers and break free on a 78 yard gallop for another score, and a 14-to-nothing lead.
Still in the second, Bland would get knocked back again, as the Indians' John Brewster puts the sack on quarterback John Michael Newberry for a seven yard loss.
But Newberry would call on J.D. Lambert, as number 32 will take it on the reverse and pick up pick yards for a first down into Indians territory.
SUPER=52-Bland Co./0/Rural Retreat/22;


But the Indians defense was the story in this one as Brewster and James Bear put the breaks on Newberry again to preserve the shutout as Rural Retreat advances to meet the winner of Saturday's Thomas Walker- Appalachia game.

The Region-C, Division two title game was held in Pearisburg tonight as the unbeaten Spartans put their perfect record on the line against a Chilhowie team that came into the game with 10 wins and only one loss.
(----------------)
VO-NAT eng#
SUPER=51-Pearisburg/Chilhowie vs. Giles; :00


The Chilhowie fans got warmed up early, but it was the Spartans who came out redhot in front of the home folks.
Giles' Chris Ratcliffe takes the snap and is off to the races, as he picks up 10 yards to the outside.
Several plays later, Ratcliffe's number would come up again. On this 3rd and 2 at the three he goes right and the Spartans draw first blood to take a 6-to-nothing lead.
The Warriors were now forced to play catchup, and quarterback Harley Davidson, yes folks that is really his name! - revs up the offense with the 2 yard touchdown run to make it 9-to-7 Giles.
But the Giles offense put it in cruise control, as Ratcliffe drops back to pass and finds a wide open Monte Tickle. He will cut across the field and pick up a dozen yards.
SUPER=52-Chilhowie/15/Giles/30;


A few plays later on first and goal from the five, Shawn Vaught travels untouched into the end zone as Giles stays unbeaten and gets set to host a state semi-final game next Saturday afternoon.

At least one fan didn't mind traveling all the way down to Bristol for tonight's state semi-final, although overall attendance was way down.
The Terriers would open the scoring with Brandy Allen taking the feed in the lane and bouncing the rock in for an early two point Terrier lead.
Lord Botetourt would get on the board when Katrina Elliott dished this pass to Aimee Bird, who hits nothing but net on the long jumper.
The Terriers would play team ball , as Erin Caldwell passes to Stephanie Parnell in the lane for another short jumper off the glass for 2 more points.
Sarah Hicks would then steal the show, with the steal at halfcourt and the driving score to cut the Byrd lead to 4 points.
The Terriers would just keep coming as Caldwell goes cross court to Brandy Allen, who fakes and scores in the paint.
