Good evening everybody and welcome to Friday Football Extra, and the first week of the playoffs.
Tonight it's the regional semi-finals in the spotlight, and for next half hour we'll take you from Division 6 through Division One.
Plus, we'll c heck in with our player of the week, find out who the last defensive stopper of the season is, here from the principals from both Powell Valley and Appalachia high schools.
SS=PH/ALBEMARLE


Let's start the party in Charlottesville, where the consequences of using ineligible players left Glass and Danville watching from the stands, and put Albemarle in as the western district's top dog.
This evening Albemarle played host to Patrick Henry in a division six rematch.
(----------------)
VO-NAT eng#
SUPER=51-Charlottesville/Patrick Henry vs. Albemarle; :00


During the regular season, PH rocked Albemarle 59-to-27, and they were expected to easily win the battle of Patriots again tonight.
PH would strike first as Boo Battle sets up in the pocket for a rare pass, and Thomas Hill does 360 to get under it and pull it in for the TD from 23 yards out. It's 7-to-nothing.
Albemarle answers right back. Timmy Carter takes the handoff in the big house from seven yards away and we're tied at 7-all.
Patrick Henry would take it's turn in this track meet as Hill, goes straight ahead on the dive play and just keeps going for a 26 yard touchdown as the Patriots from Roanoke are back on top 14-to-7 in the second.
Albemarle cut it to 14-to-13, before James Hickenbotham finally broke one off in the Ville! He takes it up the middle through a sorry tackle and into the endzone. It's a 70 yard dash. PH leads it 21-to-13.
SUPER=52-Patrick Henry/37/Albemarle/38;


Albemarle scored again to makes it a 21-to-19 game, but PH from 4 yards out hammers it in with Hickenbotham doing the honors. But you have to play some defense some time and Albemarle wins a wild one 38-to-37.

Welcome back everybody as we continue with the 13th show of this our 14th season of Friday Football Extra.
SS=J.Forest/Tunstall


We now move into the Division Three ranks in Region Three where the team many consider the best Group Two A team in the state, Jefferson Forest hosted the Tunstall Trojans.
(----------------)
VO-NAT eng#
SUPER=51-Forest/Tunstall vs. Jeff. Forest; :00


The Cavaliers and Trojans met at midfield and were told to let their pads do the talking.
We pick it up at the end of the first, Tunstall has the ball on its own 32 and Lashon Atkins hands off to Rontae Williams, who takes it around the left side for 15 big yards- but the drive would stall.
A few plays later, the Cavs would try their hand at moving the rock. Jerton Evans fakes the handoff and drops off a nice screen to Frank Wade, and he will take it down the right side for a huge 21 yard gain - but they also came up empty.
Tunstall would again run it a tough Cavaliers defense as Damlen Buchanan picks off the Atkins pass and he will return it 21 yards to give the ball back to Forest.
The Cavs would be the first to finally score. Jeff Nosenzo's 27 yard field goal make it 3-to-nothing late in the second.
With just a minute and a half to go in the half, Forest from its own 39 gets Evans to call his own number, and he takes it off the right side and cuts back to the middle, then to the left. He scores from 51 yards out. Forest wins it 16 to 7.

Dogwood champ William Campbell welcomed its old Seminole nemesis Brookville to Naruna tonight.
(----------------)

SUPER=51-Naruna/Brookville vs. Wm. Campbell; :00


We begin in the second quarter with Brookville on top 7-to-nothing and William Campbell looking to come back with Dominique Dews throwing downfield to Fred Walker for a 20 yard gain on the completion.
Two plays later, Dews will hit Walker again - only this time it's a 30 yards touchdown play as the Generals tie the game at 7-all mid-way through the second quarter.
Brookville would then attempt to get something going with Jason Brown passing to Chris Nicholas. He makes the catch and fumbles, but it goes out of bounds and Brookville hangs on for a first down.
Brown would come out throwing again, and this time he hits Payton Townes for a dozen yards to keep the ball moving in Generals' territory.
SUPER=52-Brookville/27/William Campbell/10;


Gene Snyder would come on to attempt a field goal, but it's wide right.
Brookville thought is able to win big 27 to 10.

(----------------)
VO-NAT ENG#
SUPER=51-Bluefield/Magna Vista vs. Graham; :00


Glynn Carlock and his Graham G-Men looked to end Warriors' season on an ice cold, rainy, raw evening in Four Seasons Country.
The G-Men took a seven to nothing lead in the first quarter and came out looking for more. Walter Kennard comes down the left side and picks up 20 big yards and a first down.
Five plays after that dash, Jonathon Jessup will hand off to Jarrod Tibbs for a one yard TD flop in the mud.
That makes it 14-to-nothing G-Men.
Graham's defense was very much a factor in this one as Warrior quarterback Billy Shelton is thrown for a loss.
Don Bateman's team would keep scrapping and show alot of heart in the third quarter as Ceron Penn shakes, rattles and rolls for 62 yards on the great run all the way down to the Graham nine yard line.
SUPER=52-Magna Vista/0/Graham/21;


Five plays later, the Graham defense would preserve the shutout with a stout defensive effort, as they advance with a 21-to-nothing win.

But the Bobcats weren't taking anything for granted as they stormed onto the field looking for a repeat performance.
And they were impressive. After taking a 14-to-nothing lead Radford will strike again with number 42 Mike Dunbar rumbling 54 yards to the zone for the touchdown. The Bobcats are in front 21-to-nothing at halftime.
Grayson came back firing in the third quarter as Adam Williams passes to Chris Schreve for the touchdown. The lead is chopped to 21-to-7.
Radford's defense, which has been awesome all season then got into the act as Williams is sacked for a loss to end that drive.
SUPER=52-Grayson Co./7/Radford/28;


Radford would put the game away with quarterback Adam Artrip passing to Joe Housel for the 20 yard touchdown. The Bobcats win it tonight 28-to-7 to move on.

Two weeks ago the Chargers beat the Cougars on Carl Williams field 34-to-27. Tonight the temperature was a whole lot chillier for the rematch.
Bath would start off with a heat inducing 11 play drive that is capped by Brian Cauley's eight yard run for the first TD to make it 7-to-nothing with 5:41 left in the 1st.
Bath would do it again on its second possesion as Brandon Woodard disappears into the crowd, and 49 yards later he is wrestled down on the Covington 28 yard line.
Six plays after that, Woodard finishes the job when he punches it in from the one to make it 13-to-nothing Chargers.
Covington finally warmed to the occasion as Antonio Hill takes this Brent May pitch and rambles 22 yards for the Cougars first score of the night. It's now 13-to-7 with 3:10 left in the half.
But Bath would Charge back with Woodard, the former player of the week, blasting up the left side for 43 yards. He will take it all the way to the house to give Bath a 19-to-7 lead.
