Welcome one and all to the program we like to call Friday Football Extra. It's the Friday before Labor day and some teams in the area have already played 20 percent of their schedule.
[GRAPHIC=BYRD/ST. RIVER]


But for William Byrd, this marked the start of the what the Terriers hope will be run to the postseason as they traveled down 24 to Moneta at take on Staunton River.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Moneta/William Byrd vs. St. River; :00]


This marked the opening game of year for three time Friday Football Extra player of the week O.J. Thomason.
But the all-state back found the going tough early in the first quarter as the Eagles held him to just one yard on three carries to keep Byrd backed up and forces the punt.
The River would then get rolling on offense on a third and six from the Byrd 35 - the Eagles keep moving with Jay Phares hitting John Martin for a first down.
Four plays later - Jermaine Moyer gets the four yard TD run and the River takes a 7-to-nothing lead after the first quarter.
On Byrd's next possession - Bo Royal bootlegs the pill around the left side and picks up 20 yards down to the Eagles' five yard line.
[SUPER=52-William Byrd/34/Staunton River/14;]


OJ would slam it in for the score and Byrd comes back to win it tonight 34 to 14 over Staunton River.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./Lord Botetourt vs. Glenvar; :00 ]


The girls of Glenvar were showing off their green bellies tonight. Don't try this at home.
In the first half, Botetourt's Anthony Ford drops back and hits Michael Mikulicic. He fakes out the "D" and scores.
Glenvar would come back and score with Brandon Carroll pitching to Josh Bishop who fires the pass downfield on the 80 yard strike and run and it's a ball game again.
In the fourth the game was tied at 23-all when the Highlanders from their 41 get this Carroll pass to Ryan
[SUPER=52-Lord Botetourt/23/Glenvar/26;]

Still he will take the rock all the way down to the 10 yard line.

After dominating Giles on the road last Friday, Blacksburg returned home tonight looking to go oh-and-2 against the always tough G-Men of Graham.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Blacksburg/Graham vs. Blacksburg; :00]


The Blacksburg cheerleaders were expecting a real war tonight against the G-Men.
We pick it up with Graham on top 17-to-7. Late in the fourth quarter, the Indians attempt to make things interesting when John Candelas takes the ball in from 13 yard's away to chop Graham's lead to 17-to-14.
The Indians euphoria would end suddenly though as Leonard Graves takes off on a nice run. He will fumble the ball into a pile of Indians - but a Graham player Reed Oakes picks up the ball and he will take it all the way down to the Indians' one yard line.
[SUPER=52-Graham/31/Blacksburg/20;]


Graham would seal the deal with Brian French keeping on the short run. Graham takes a 24-to-14 lead and the G-Men win it 31 to 20.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Low Moor/Parry McCluer vs. Alleghany; :00]


First year head coach Mark Keith gave his Mounties some last second instructions as they headed into tonight's contest.
Alleghany's main man Terrell Givens would give Keith something to smile about in the opening quarter as he picks up 24 yards and set up the first score of the night. It's 7-to-nothing Mountaineers.
The Fighting Blues would regroup and retaliate with Lee Stinnett motoring down the right sideline. He is going 38 yards before being brought down deep in Alleghany territory.
A few plays later Tommy Lunsford would bounce off the big pile at the goal line and fall in the endzone to make it 8-to-7 Blues.
[super=52-Parry McCluer/21/Alleghany/44 ;]


CW Clemmons would later take the handoff up the gut and drag the Blues into the endzone to put Alleghany back on top. The Mounties win it 44 to 21.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Rockbridge Co./Covington vs. Rockbridge Co.; :00]


The Wildcats came charging into the second half open to declaw the Cougars.
We pick it up in the fourth as Rockbridge's standout runner Bruce Cooper takes the handoff from Jonathan Wilson. He will cut back across the field and motor 85 yards up the left sideline to make it 13-to-6 Wildcats with 4:50 left to go in the ball game.
With ony 14 seconds left in the contest, Covington's Chris Dolan would try and play the role of a hero for the Cougar faithful. Watch as he goes straight up the middle with the dive into the endzone pulling the Cougars to within one point with 10 seconds left on the clock.
[super=52-Covington/14/Rockbridge Co./13;]


The Cougars then went for the win! Is this great or what? Wesley Hostetter rolls to his right and finds Michael Allen wide open in the corner of the endzone as the Cougars win it 14-to-13 in a wild one.

[GRAPHIC=DANVILLE/FLEMING]


And we begin with what is traditionally a very heated rivalry between Fleming and G.W. Danville. The bad blood between these two began boiling last Friday when the two coaches clashed on how to trade game tape of each other.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Roanoke/GW Danville vs. Wm. Fleming; :00]


Danville's Ed Martin may want to burn the tapes of tonight's performance once he gets his eyes on what Fleming did do his squad at the stadium.
In the third, Fleming is already on top 21-to-6 and going for three more as Elvir Berbic boots this 27 yard field goal to make the score 24-to-6 Colonels after three.
Fleming would cash in a couple of hefty insurance policies in the fourth. Fleming quarterback Richard Barrett hits the quick out to Jonathan Smith, and with the defense flowing he cuts back and up the middle and completes the 35 yard play with a score. 30-to-6 Fleming leads.
On Danville's next play from scrimmage, Jeremy Motley is hit as drops back. Fleming's Charles Corner recovers the ball and takes it in for a TD from the 10. It's now 36-to-6.
[SUPER=52-G.W. Danville/6/William Fleming/42;]


Late in the fourth, the Colonels Barrett would again hook up with Smith in the air. This one is good from 8 yards out. It's not a misprint just a mismatch thanks in part to Barrett's arm.

(------------)

[SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./Jeff. Forest vs. Cave Spring;:00]


Cave Spring assistant Brandon Semones was working hard to get the defense in motion for the Knights.
But Forest would put together an impressive opening drive and Brian Neal caps it with a handoff to Will Brandt. He scores untouched and it's 7-to-nothing Cavs.
The Cavs would continue to have success on the ground as Hunter Horsley comes around the right end and picks up 12 yards to set up another Forest score.
[SUPER=52-Jefferson Forest/16/Cave Spring/21;]


Jeff Nosenzo continues to have the hot foot as he hits a 42 yard field goal to make it ten to nothing. Cave Spring comes back to win it 21 to 16.

[SUPER=51-Pulaski Co./E.C. Glass vs. Pulaski Co.; :00]


Dennis Peters and his Hilltoppers held a 14-to-7 halftime lead in the Cougars' Den in this 99 renewal.
But Pulaski would come out of the lockeroom inspired as Paul Taylor nails this field goal after some good coaching from kicking guru Kenneth Dobson. It's now 14-to-10 Glass in the third.
The Cougars would then turn up the heat a little bit more on the Topper sin the fourth as Josh Calfee take the rock and rolls down to the one yard line on the run.
Pulaski would get in the zone two plays later as Antwain Meadows scores and Pulaski is now in front and in control 17-to-14.
[SUPER=52-E.C. Glass/14/Pulaski Co./17;]

Hoping to get off to a good start this season the Green Wave would quickly disabled the Rockets Blue glare.

The Maroons were anxious to get this Region C matchup underway in Wytheville. After a defensive power struggle in the first quarter, the Maroons would get on the board. Grizzly Parks takes the pitch to his right, reverses his field to the left and he is going to score from 12 yards out. It's 7-to-nothing GW.
Radford's offense would then get some life of its own as quarterback Josh Woods connects with Giavanni Morton for the nine yard completion.
A few plays later, Jelani Hendricks comes around the side and he nearly uses the ball - but holds on for a gain of 7 yards for the Bobcats.
[SUPER=52-Radford/13/George Wythe/14;]


GW's defense would stiffen as the Maroons converge on Woods and drop him for a nine yard loss.

Late in the third, Tunstall would do its best to let the Pioneers get back in this thing as Tim Robertson fumbles and Tony Jones scoops up the rock and scores from 20 yards away. It's now a 20-to-14 game.

The folks in Ridgeway turned out in force for tonight's opener for the Magna Vista Warriors.
They would see their own Deon Moore intercept Nathan Angle and he will run it back ten yards for the Warriors.
But Franklin County would get the ball back and Angle would just keep throwing as he hooks up with Kelly Moore on a nice 30 yard completion into Magna Vista territory.
One man spent the night celebrating his 40th birthday at the game.
In the second quarter, the Warriors would cough up the ball and Franklin County's Alex Hunt would recover for the Eagles.

We pick this one up in the third quarter with Gretna on top 14-to-12 and on the move again as Carlos Van Hook hands off to Aljuan Carter who turns the play into a 25 yard TD just like they draw it up in the off season. The Hawks soar to a 20-to-12 advantage.
Laurel Park will then try to let Marcus Mann get them back in it, but he fumbles the ball and Gretna's Carter picks it up and goes up the near sideline and eventually across the field down to the one yard line before he is stopped.
Van Hook would then keep and score from the one and Gretna goes in front 26-to-12 at that point.
Mann would try to pass the Lancers back into the end zone, and he gets some help as the ball is tipped to

(( Kroger senior advertising executive Carl York came up with the concept of creating a weekly high school football brochure full of valuable information, stats and interviews four years ago. He named it the Crunch and made it available to football fans at absolutely no cost. ((CARL YORK:))
10 area schools stretching from Franklin County to Pulaski County make up the 1999 Crunch Bunch. But the publication stretches far beyond southwest and central Virginia. ((CARL YORK:))
Fans are always interested in what coaches have to say, something the Crunch takes into account.)) ((CARL YORK::))
