For the second straight year the George Washington - Danville Eagles are headed to the Division 6 state championship game.
This afternoon the Eagles outlasted Thomas Dale 7-to-nothing in the semi-finals.

SUPER=03-Danville/Division 6 Semi-Final; :00


With the cold, rainy conditions the players had trouble staying loose today.
And they were extra tight because this game was scoreless in the fourth quarter.
Thomas Dale appeared to be headed to the endzone from the GW five. Mark Davis keeps the ball, but he is knocked for a loss by Tyrone Nunally, and the Knights ended up missing the field goal to keep things scoreless.
GW's defense would again have to save the day, as Davis's pass is picked off by Eric Candy inside the 20. Regulation would end in a scoreless tie and then game then went to overtime.
GW quarterback Chanston Rodgers would finally ice the game with the eight yard run on their first possesion to
SUPER=36-Thomas Dale/0/G.W. Danville/7/Overtime;

make it 6-to-nothing.
Then Mike Riano would add the extra point as Danville beats Thomas Dale 7-to-nothing to stay unbeaten on the season.

In the Division Two semi-finals, the Giles Spartans not only stayed unbeaten on the year, but also delivered a little payback today to Powell Valley, the team that knocked Giles out of the playoffs last year.

SUPER=03-Pearisburg/Division 2 Semi-Finals; :00

The defending State Champs came to Pearisburg hoping to keep their heads above water.
The Vikings looked hot in their opening drive. On their first play of the game Julius Jones, Thomas Jones younger brother, takes the handoff and streaks down the left sideline 77 yards, untouched for the touchdown to make it 7-to-nothing. That was the score at halftime.
Giles would comeback halfway through the third as Chris Ratcliffe goes right around end picking up 6 yards for the touchdown. But the two point conversion failed and Giles still trailed by one.
The Spartans would finally go on top for good a minute and half into the fourth quarter as Ratcliffe hooks with Chris Bales on an 11 yard touchdown pass
SUPER=36-Powell Valley/7/Giles/14;

to put Giles on top 12-to-7.
This time Giles would convert the conversion and get the win as they beat POwell Valley 14-to-7.

For the first time since 1988, Brookville will play for the state football championship after a thrilling 13 to 12 rain soaked win over previously unbeaten Gate City.

VO-NAT #eng
SUPER=03-Campbell Co./Division 3 Semi-Finals;


The visiting Blue Devils seemed pretty confident about things before kickoff, but the Bees trotted onto the soggy turf with some different plans.
Brookville felt 'blue' early on. Gate City puts 6 foot 9 Josh Shoemaker at wideout, and Matt Osborne lobs the alley-oop into the end zone for a 14 yard TD. The PAT failed and the Blue Devils led 6-nothing.
Brookville came right back. Jason Brown hits big James Lomax who rumbles and stumbles 64 yards to paydirt to tie things up at 6 in the second quarter.
Then just before the half, Brown hits Lomax again for a 6 yard strike and the Bees took a 13-6 lead to the lockerroom at halftime.
It would stay that way until late in the 4th. Shoemaker scrambles and finally finds Brandon Seaver in the endzone with just over 5 minutes to go. But another botched extra point left Brrokville with a 1 point lead.
The Devils had one more shot. But SUPER=36-Brookville/13/Gate City/12; :

Lomax is "Johnny on the spot" with the INT and Brookville holds on for a 13-12 win.
