Good evening everybody it time for yet another edition of Friday Football Extra. Amazingly, tonight we close out the regular season with the 11th straight week of action. In the next half hour we will crown no less than 6 district champs, hear from a former Friday Football Extra coach of the year, who coached his final game tonight, and see if OJ Thomason was able to pass Terry ` and become the state's all-time rushing leader.
[GRAPHIC=CAVE/PULASKI]

But we begin in Pulaski County where the Roanoke Valley district scales appeared to not only be tipped in the wrong direction, but broken. Cave Spring came in looking to win the district outright, while Pulaski came in with no chance of even getting a share of the crown and no chance of making the playoffs.

[SUPER=51-Pulaski Co./Cave Spring vs. Pulaski Co.;]

So, Joel Hicks and his Cougars had to be content with playing the role of the spoiler tonight at Kenneth Dobson Stadium. We pick up this wild on late in the fourth with the Cougars trailing 28-to-21. Josh Calfee erases the deficit to complete a lengthy drive and tie the game at 28-all and send it to overtime. Pulaski got the ball first, and on the Cougars second play Travis Roop calls his own number and sweeps in off the left side for the nine yard TD. It's 35-to-28 Cougars after the kick. Cave Spring then got it's turn and, Michael Hamlar turns the pitch into a TD with a little extra effort. It's 35-to-34. As the Knights debate whether or not to got for the tie or the win.
[SUPER=52-Cave Spring/34/Pulaski Co./35;]

They go for two, but Hamlar loses the ball and the Knights lose the game 35-to-34. The Knights still advance to the playoffs, but they have the share the district title.

Meanwhile, Fleming was at the stadium tonight closing out the regular season against longtime Star City rival Patrick Henry. This game had a number of story lines, including how the presentation of the Noel C. Taylor trophy would be handled at the game's end.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Roanoke/Wm. Fleming vs. Patrick Henry; :00]

We pick this one up at the start of the third quarter with Fleming clinging to a 13-to-12 lead. Fleming would take over in the third with a draining 14 play drive that is capped by this Richard Barrett to Cedric Preston 6 yard touchdown pass. It's now 20-to-12 Colonels in the third. Fleming would keep rolling in the second half. From the PH 37 yard line Barrett connects with a diving Craig Calfee who makes the circus catch at the 11. On the very next play, Jermaine Hardy runs right, shakes a tackle and scores to make it 27-to-12 as the third quarter expires. PH has played much better the second half of the season, and the Patriots would make things interesting with 30 seconds to go as Jermaine Myers scores from the four. It's 27-to-20 after the 2 point conversion.
[super=52-Patrick Henry/20/William Fleming/27;]

The Patriots got the onside kick, but Fleming got the win with Lamon Price cashing in on the interception to seal it. Fleming wins it 27-to-20. And the Colonels accept what is likely the most coveted Noel C. Taylor trophy ever.

GW knew the game itself would not be a challenge, but staying focused for the postseason would be. But the Eagles did a good job of getting everyone some playing time and keeping the starters healthy as Demar Fitzgerald pitches to Ron Martin for the five yard touchdown. The Eagles take a 54-to-nothing lead. Halifax tried to avoid the skunk in the fourth, as Daniel Brandon passes to Carlton Roach who takes it 75 yards for the touchdown. But not tonight folks, because the score is called back because of a penalty. GW would put the game away for good as Brandon's pass is picked off by Michael Nunnally.

((Isn't it ironic that after piling up over seven thousand yards in four years, he would shatter the record on a run of just six feet. With two minutes and nine seconds left in the third quarter, O.J. Thomason became the Virginia High School League career leading rusher. ((O.J. THOMASON/7,476 CAREER RUSHING YARDS:)) ((BO ROYAL/WILLIAM BYRD QUARTERBACK:))
O.J. needed 192 yards and got 240 for a grand total of seven thousand 476 career yards on the ground. He also becomes the high school career leader in 100 yard rushing games and career carriers. Thomason breaks Terry Kirby's record by 48 yards. The former Tabb all star has dawned the colors of the 49ers and now the Cleveland Browns, but finding himself in such company hardly phased O.J. ((:)) ((JAMIE TALBERT:))
The Wildcats would give the Terriers a scare in the first half despite going down 14-nothing. The two touchdown lead was secured when Bo Royal Found Craig Janney on an 18 yard TD completion nine minutes before intermission.
Rockbridge matched the Terriers point for point. Quarterback Jonathan Wilson finds freshman tight end Kevin Burant. he finds running room on his way to a 45 yard touchdown reception and the game was notted at 14 a piece at the half.
But on a night where Byrd stadium was officially re-named Robert A. Patterson Stadium, the game had to belong to the Terriers.
Byrd quickly churned out 14 third quarter points, including the first of two O.J. touchdowns. Thomason put the game away in the fourth. Byrd tops Rockbridge 41-14.))

While most eye were on OJ tonight, the Salem Spartans were anxious to complete a perfect regular season and tune up for the playoffs as they hosted the struggling Christiansburg Blue Demons.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=51-Salem/Christiansburg vs. Salem; :00]

The Spartans and their coaches knew if Salem was on its game from the start they could make quick work of the Blue Demons. And they would do just that. Dennis Haley fields the Demon punt near midfield, and makes one nice move. That's all he would need as he takes it to the house untouched. It's 7-to-nothing Salem. On Salem's next possession, Haley will do it again - this time from the backfield he motors 27 yards up the middle of the field moving the ball into Christiansburg territory. Two plays after that, Manuel Lewis goes up the middle for a 24 yard TD dash, and the Spartans are on top 14-to-nothing. Salem started slearing its bench before the end of the first quarter as Matt Otey goes off tackle into the endzone to make it 21-to-nothing in the first.

Anthony Ford drops back, and then decides to keep the rock. He goes straight up the middle for the TD. It's 14-to-nothing after the two point conversion. Gooooo Amy! Blacksburg would fumble the ball back to the Cavaliers and Botetourt would turn a second and 14 in to another touchdown as Nick Reedy punches it in for the a 20-to-nothing Cavaliers lead.

The Trojans came into this one looking to make their return to the Piedmont a perfect one. In the first quarter, Brandon Hairston keeps the ball and scores from the two yard line. And quickly it's 6-to-nothing Trojans after the blocked kick. Martinsville would return the favor with Niquis Martin handing off to Shawn Wade. He will get in the house from the four and Martinsville takes a 7-to-6 lead still in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Tunstall would get back on top with the running of Tim Robertson.

The Hawks cheerleaders were getting the home folks fired up tonight, but it would take more than spirit to win this one. In the second quarter, Appomattox caps a 65 yard drive as quarterback Chris Evans lets GW Reynolds take it right up the gut from the 3. It's 6 to nothing. The Hawks would take a shot from the 36 as Carlos Van Hook hooks up with Anthony Hunt who makes the catch and gets 34 yards with the aid of a penalty. But the drive would come up empty. Then late in the second, the Raiders get a big pick up themselves as Evans starts a reverse that ends up with Maurice Kelso taking it around the right end. He turns on the speed and makes it 38 yards before he steps out of bounds. A few plays later, Evans will take the snap and he will roll to his right, look down field, and eventually scramble up the sideline for a 15 yard touchdown. The visitors are now on top 12-to-zip after the failed two point try. Now in the fourth, The Raiders from the Gretna 41 let Kelso take it right up the middle, then to the side. He dodges the "D" and flat out - outruns everyone to the house to make it 18-to-zip.
[SUPER=52-Appomattox/20/Gretna/0;]

Just like that Amherst is on top 21-to-17. Early in the fourth, Trae Tolliver for the Lancers will take off up the middle and turn a little quick hitter into a 67 yard touchdown run.

Jefferson Forest would try it again on its next series, and this time Neal gets to the outside and scampers down the sideline for an 16 yard gain for the Cavs. Early in the second, the Red Devils were on the move and Tony Jefferson rips off a nice dash up the middle good for 14 yards moving the ball down to the 13.
