Howdy everybody and welcome to another big night of Friday Football Extra.
We are already at week four in the season, and not surprisingly we have some
upsets and upsetting results from tonight's action.
Let's open things up down at Victory stadium where unbeaten Patrick Henry
attempted to overcome a lot of history tonight as they hosted G.W. Danville, a
team the Pats haven't beaten in almost 25 years.
SUPER=51-Roanoke/G.W. Danville vs. Patrick Henry; :00
The Patriot fans were trying to rally their team in the second half as Coach
Jeff Johnson was trying to figure how to bounce back from a 28-to-7 deficit.
It didn't look like that was even a remote possibility as this Eagle pass
from Chanceton Rogers is tipped by PH but right into the hands of Mike Brown
for a 20 yard pickup to the PH 28.
PH finally got smart and put the ball in the hands of James Hickenbotham, who
takes the handoff from his own 16 and he turns on the jets motoring down the
right side for 84 to cut the GW lead to 14 points in the third quarter.
The Patriots then went to some trickery as Hickenbotham takes the pitch on
the option pass and throws a bomb to Chad Giles. The 73 yard SUPER=52-G.W.
scoring play cut the lead to 7. But Danville hangs on for the 28-to-21 win to
knocks Ph from the ranks of the unbeaten.

Pulaski was back in the Cougars' Den tonight for the second straight week
playing another team from outside the state, as DC's Anacostia made its yearly
junket to the area.
SUPER=51-Pulaski Co./Anacostia vs. Pulaski Co.; ;00
The Cougars came in to Kenneth Dobson stadium rubbing the big cats for some
And they experienced just that as Anacostia fumbles on its second offensive
play of the game. Brian Clymer recovers for the Cougars at the 15.
That set up Dorian Hendricks pass to Jerome Thomas, as the TD puts Pulaski in
Anacostia appears to find some luck of its own on its fourth possesion as
Gregario Cooper connects with David Graham on this 43 yard bomb deep into
Two plays later Terrence Leftwich sweeps in off the right side for the score.
Pulaski comes back to win it 34 to 30.
The defending Division Four state champs from Salem finally got to play a
game on their own field tonight as they hosted longtime rival Cave Spring.
But before there was any action on the field, over 100 folks got together in
the parking lot to honor former Andrew Lewis coach Eddie Joyce with an old
fashioned tailgate party.
Joyce, who now lives outside of Greensboro is in town for the entire weekend
along with many of his former players. It's a time for all the old Wolverines
to say thanks to the old coaching legend.

WIPE TO ENG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SUPER=51-Salem/Cave Spring vs. Salem; :00
The party carried on into the stadium as the Salem fans were having a ball
watching the winless Spartans take a 17 to zero lead at the half.
Cave Spring helped Salem's cause, on fourth and 15 at the Knight 38, this
snap goes way over Brad Nichols' head,
Nichols tries to make up the yardage but the mistake puts the Spartans in
On the very next play at the Knight 10 yardline, Spartan Matt Anderson takes
the handoff runs wide, cuts in past the defenders for the touchdown and it's
The Spartan "D" puts an end to Cave Spring's victory hopes as Dennis Haley
picks off this Corey Paxton pass on the Salem two yard line, the 30 yard return
breaks the Knights' back and puts one in the win column for Salem.

SUPER=64-Rockbridge Co./21/Parry McCluer/13;
Time now to move on to some single-A action and we begin in the Three Rivers
where unbeaten Floyd hosted Glenvar, a team that had taken its lumps the past
two weeks against double-A teams, but at the same time grown up in a hurry.
Brian Hooker brought his Highlanders to Floyd tonight looking for the upset,
and they would take a 13-to-nothing halftime lead.
When the third opened, they refused to fold. Seth Noonkester hooks up with
Jason Underwood on a 37 yard scoring strike making it 19-to-nothing Glenvar on
top and in control.
Floyd began its comeback with Adam Gardner throwing deep to Brian Wood, and
they connect on a 30 yard TD to cut the lead to 19-to-7 in the fourth quarter.
But Glenvar would put the finishing touches on a huge win as Brian Burke
finds a hole up the middle for the TD jaunt to give the Highlanders the 26-to-7
win and the Buffaloes their first loss.
IN Q="WE WERE...
((BRIAN HOOKER/GLENVAR HEAD COACH:))
SUPER=50-Brian Hooker/Glenvar Head Coach; :00
OUT Q=...with a win."
While those two were settling the top spot in the Three Rivers, Auburn and
Giles were trying to keep pace in their district showdown.
SUPER=51-Riner/Giles vs. Auburn; :00
Tonight in Riner Auburn looked to hand the Spartans their second district
loss of the year.
And the Eagles looked pretty sharp early, as Quarterback Mike Bibb hooked up
with William Shelton for 15 yards on this play - but the drive would stall.
On Auburn's next possesion, the Spartan defense came alive with Michael
Stafford leading the sack attack on Bibb for a five yard loss.
The Single wing offense would also get off the ground after that play.
But the soaring was only momentary as Giles loses the handle, and the game
falling 14-to-7 to the Eagles.
On the reservation in Shawsville tonight the Tribe welcomed Mountain Empire
member Bland County to town for some non-district action.
SUPER=51-Shawsville/Bland Co. vs. Shawsville; :00
And from the very beginning Shawsville out-muscled the Bears.
The ball was like a greased pig and on the opening series Bland County can't
hold on to it, Shawnee Brian Caswell comes up with the loose pigskin on the
Caswell on offense this time takes the Josh Hatfield handoff, spins off the
tackle, carries a few defenders and scampers 17 yards for the first down.
Caswell keeps the Shawnees on the move, turning this play into an 11 yard
gainer, setting up Shawsville's first score.
The Shawnees go on to beat Bland County 22 to 12.
The Radford Bobcats returned home tonight trying to keep their feet on the
ground after last week's shellacking of Grayson.
Tonight the opposition was much tougher as Mike Cole's Christiansburg Blue
Demons checked into Bobcat stadium.
SUPER=51-Radford/Christiansburg vs. Radford; :00
The Bobcats came into the second half with a 20-to-7 lead the Demons.
And for the second straight week the Cats "D" was tenacious as Phillip Hicks
picks off this Lance Reynolds pass and puts the ball back in the hands of his
11 plays and a whole lot of clock later, Adam Artrip fires one over the
middle to Joe Housel for nine yards to move the ball into scoring position.
Finally, on the 15th play of the drive, Mike Dunbar punches it in from the
one as Radford wins 26-to-7 to improve to 3-and-1.

It's now time for some of the Blue Ridge members to step back into the
along with Franklin County. Tonight Jerry Little's Eagles tried to even
their record at 2-and-2 as they hosted Lord Botetourt.
SUPER=51-Rocky Mount/Lord Botetourt vs. Franklin Co.; :00
At Cy Dillon stadium the Franklin County Eagles band was putting on quite a
show for the home folks.
Botetourt meanwhile was fighting an uphill battle down 29-to-7 in the third
when Shawn Osborne kicked this 21 yard field goal to make it 29-to-10.
But the Eagles' Bobby Basham took over in the fourth with this screen pass to
Jim Dillon from the 10.
The TD pass makes it 36-to-10 Eagles.
With just minutes left in the game,
SUPER=52-Lord Botetourt/10/Franklin Co./42;
the Eagles do it again from the six as Basham gives it to T.J. Manns and

While Botetourt was in the mount, Staunton River was in Low Moor looking for
one more against the Mountaineers.
SUPER=51-Low Moor/Staunton River vs. Alleghany; :00
The Golden Eagles soared into Mountaineer Field a week after getting their
first win of the season hoping to pick off the unbeaten Mountaineers.
Staunton River would get on the board on its first possesion with Kenny
Maxfield as he takes the ball from his own 27 and rumbles down the field on a
58 yard run to set up the first score of the evening. It's 7-to-nothing.
But Alleghany would come back with a touchdown of its own as Shannon Johnson,
the former player of the week, keeps and scopes from 18 yards away to tie the
game at 7.
Alleghany did it again in the second quarter as Brian
Carroll make it happen on the 20 yard run as the Mounties win it 36 to 19.
William Byrd also was trying to remain unbeaten tonight as the Terriers
welcomed Bassett to Vinton for the latest chapter in this entertaining rivalry.
SUPER=51-Vinton/Bassett vs. William Byrd; :00
Homecoming night at Byrd this evening had the Terriers fired up against the
visitors from Bassett.
And it didn't take the Terriers long to get it rolling. Jeremy Camden blocks
the Bengals' punt and Byrd recovers at the Bengals 20.
Five plays later, number 33 Daniel Wagner punches it in from 2 yards out to
put Byrd in front to make it 7-to-nothing.
After stopping the Bengals again, Byrd's get back in the offensive mode.
O.J. Thomason crashes through the SUPER=52-Bassett/14/William Byrd/35;
line and goes up the gut to the house for the 23 yard touchdown.
Byrd wins it 35 to 14.
Rockbridge was also out of district tonight playing its most emotional game
of the season against Parry McCluer on the Blues home turf.
SUPER=51-Buena Vista/Rockbridge Co. vs. Parry McCluer; :00
The crowd was so large for tonight's game that several hundred spectators
had to sit along the sideline.
After an early third quarter TD got Parry McCluer within one point, the
Wildcats responded on the ensuing kickoff as Clay Hobson catches the kick on
his 20 and then darts and dashes through heavy traffic en route to an 80 yard
back breaking TD. The Cats take a 21-to-13 lead on the Blues.
The Rockbridge defense would take care of business the rest of the way as it
stops the Blues on a fourth and nine with a gang tackle of the Blues
SUPER=52-Rockbridge Co./21/Parry McCluer/13;
Rockbridge then melted the clock with its running game as Jamie Talbott's
boys win it 21-to-13 to stay unbeaten at 3-and-0.

Welcome back as we now stroll down into southside Virginia to Ringgold
Where two old Piedmont warriors reunited with the Dogwood's Dan River
Wildcats hosting Martinsville.
SUPER=51-Ringgold/Martinsville vs. Dan River; :00
The Bulldogs would have very little trouble in this one tonight as Danny Wade
hands off to Marcus Hairston - and he is gone! The 50 yard touchdown blast
puts the Dogs on top 35-to-nothing!
Dan River would attempt to make it respectable as Jerry Meadows flips it to
Marcus Thomas who with the razzle dazzle passes to Adam Rainey moving the ball
down to the Bulldogs ten yard line.
But Martinsville would preserve the shutout as the Wildcats best shot at
scoring ends with a pass interference call in the end zone on fourth down.
The Bulldogs win it 35-to-nothing to move to 3-and-0.

OUT Q=...painful right now."
From Pittsylvania County back into Henry County where Fieldale-Collinsville
hosted the Tunstall Trojans this evening.
SUPER=51-Collinsville/Tunstall vs. F. Collinsville; :00
The Cavaliers get all bunched up for a little body slapping as they got ready
to do the wild thing against Tunstall.
But the Trojans had other plans as quarterback LaShon Adkins sneaks in to cap
an 80 yards drive and make it 7-to-zip.
But after the kickoff the Cavs starting moving upfield on this impressive 30
yard keeper by Phillip Hairston, who shows off his footwork and and speed to
get down to the six.
On the next play Hairston hands the pill to Donnell Stockton who follows good
blocking on off the right side for the standup score.
F.C. loses it 34 to 10.
Finally, tonight we head down to Chatham where the Cavaliers hosted the
powerful Brookville Bees and head coach Mark Lineburg.
SUPER=51-Chatham/Brookville vs. Chatham; :00
A hazy, humid night in Chatham for tonight's game, but it was clear sailing
for the Bees.
Quarterback Jason Brown scores the first TD of the night on the one yard
keeper to make it 7-to-nothing Brookville.
The Bees would sting again as Peyton Townes takes the pass from Brown and
completes the 50 yard scoring play as Brookville moves on top 14-to-nothing,
scoring on their first two possessions.
Make that their first three.
Jay Callands takes the handoff and he scores from five yards out as
Brookville stays unbeaten with a resounding 61 to 6 win.
When we come back, we'll check out another rocky night for teams in the
Super-7, and meet this week's player of the week.
A man who is making history and overcoming adversity to lead Carroll County

more dominating performances of the Norm Lineburg era.
On the road against a team that was unbeaten, the Bobcats completely shut

The Cats forced four turnovers, blocked a punt out of the endzone, and gave
up less than 100 yards and only 6 first downs.
