Let's now head down into Henry County where the top spot in the Piedmont was
up for grabs as unbeaten Martinsville hosted Bassett.
The Bulldogs and Bengals have staged some doozies in the past including this
a gem in 1985 won by Martinsville.
SUPER=51-Bassett/September 27, 1985;:00
The key play in the that game on September 27th, 11 years ago, featured Shawn
Moore the future Cavalier scrambling out of the grasp of Aaron STaples the
future Tarheel and finding a wide open Charles Poodle Milner down the sideline
and into the endzone for the score.

Let's head down to Dan Greene stadium and find out.

back to Watkins who this time
Takes it in the house from 10 yards out and Bassett takes a 15-to-3 lead.
But the Bulldogs get it together and come back to take the 24 to 15 win.
The week seven fun has just begun.
Right after this quick break we'll check in on some other traditional rivalries
in Christiansburg, Vinton, Low Moor and Northside, but first we need to take a
look at the first group of scores from this evening, and take a listen to the
Giles high school marching band.

met for the first time as members of this 8 team league.
SUPER=51-Christiansburg/Blacksburg vs. Christiansburg; :00
The Demons were anxious to wrap up this game as were the fans as mercury took
a tumble in the Burg.
Blacksburg would close the fourth quarter with a 23 yard TD pass from Tommy
Leforce to Joey Carter to give the Indians a 21-to-14 lead.
Christiansburg would answer that with 5:39 left in the game as Mike Scott
breaks bad on a 26 yard scoring dash to cut the lead to 21-to-20.
The Demons tied it with this extra point, but a penalty took it off the
board, and Mike Cole then went for two and the win.
Scott punches it in for the two points and the Blue Demons turn a penalty
into points with a 22-to-21 win over Blacksburg.

and 3 record indicated going in.
SUPER=51-Vinton/Salem vs. William Byrd; :00
But it was Salem that would strike first.
Matt Anderson runs up the middle and over everyone for the 11 yard score.
But it was the Byrd defense that really won the game--Key interceptions like
this one from Josh Jones set the Terriers up for the

Max Lowe's Mountaineers hosted Route 220 rival Lord Botetourt.
SUPER=51-Low Moor/Lord Botetourt vs. Alleghany; :00
Alleghany came into tonight's game with high hopes of picking up its first
Blue Ridge win of the year.
Early in the first quarter, on their second possesion, the Mounties would get
things moving as Bryan Carroll scrambles 21 yards to the Cavaliers 1 yard line.
On the very next play, Sophomore quarterback Shannon Johnson finds Jamie Vail

Botetourt would try to crunch those thoughts on its next possession as Wesley
Cox bullies his way in from the six to make it 7-to-6.
The Cavs come back to beat the Mountaineers 51 to 27.
As a result of all the other happening in the district tonight, the Northside
Vikings are now in sole possesion of first place in the Blue Ridge after
beating Rockbridge Co. 6-to-nothing in overtime.
SUPER=51-Roanoke Co./Rockbridge Co. vs. Northside; :00
And as the score indicates this one was a war between the red zones.
We pick it up late in the fourth and Viking quarterback Xavier Lee throwing
to the wrong team as John Hill makes the pick and runs it back to the goal line
to set up an apparent score, BUT a clip moved the ball back to the 33 yard
Rockbridge would end up needing to convert this hail mary to win the game,
but the VIkings batt it down in the endzone and we're headed to overtime.
Rockbridge got the ball first but failed to score on a missed field goal, and
left the door wide open for John Doss to run in for the game winner as
Northside moves to 3-ad-0 in the district with a 6-to-nothing overtime win.

The Patrick Henry Patriots were back home after last week's win over Glass
taking on their fifth straight Western district opponent in Amherst Co.
SUPER=51-Roanoke/Amherst Co. vs. Patrick Henry; :00
Mickey Crouch's defending 2A state champs were rarin' to go as they took
the Victory Stadium turf tonight as a triple-A member.
They jumped on top early. Dante Christian calls his own number and just
gets the ball across the plane for the TD.
The Lancers then go for two. Eddie Meganson takes it in up the middle and
Amherst held a 16 point lead late in the first.
But the Patriots put together a drive of their own. Chad Giles hauls in
the pass from Dennis Dunnaville deep SUPER=52-Patrick Henry/26/Amherst/24;
in Lancer territory. The drive stalled, but PH comes back to win it 26 to 24.
E,C. Glass was back in action a week after being upset by the Patriots,
looking to take its frustrations out on Halifax County.
SUPER=51-Lynchburg/Halifax Co. vs. E.C. Glass; :00
The Glass faithful did just that tonight turning the the game with the Comets
into a track meet.
The Topper scored on offense, defense, in tight and from as far a way as 75
yards and Garnett McDaniel takes care of business on this weaving run to the
zone that nets six as he runs out of gas and Glass goes in front 28-nothing.
The Glass defense didn't allow the Comets offense much time to get on track
with hits like this one from Tony "Tweedy" Hamlett. Robert Spencer scoops up
the fumble and runs it in to make it 35-to-nothing Toppers.
The Glass defense did the job until the fourth when Carlos Jackson connected
with William Ballou. But it was too little too later as Glass bounces back with
the 49 to 14 win.
No trouble at all tonight for the number one ranked team the Friday Football
Extra super-7, as George Washington hammers Albemarle
55 to 14.

The GW band has plenty of chances to play tonight as the Eagles scored early
Chanceton Rogers hands off to Brian Terry, and he gets in from eight yard out
to make the score 48-to-George Washington in the third quarter.
The massacre would continue in the fourth as GW's Antonie Kirby scores from a
yard out and the score is now 55-to-7.
Albemarle would add a later score after the Danville sixth graders came on!

of Riner where the Auburn Eagles welcomed Shawsville to town for a little
Three Rivers action.
SUPER=51-Riner/Shawsville vs. Auburn; :00
Auburn was looking for a Homecoming win tonight against the much improved
But what better to jar the bones on a cold night than a wicked hit, and
Shawsville's defense puts the cat on the Eagles ball carrier.
But Auburn would not be denied on this drive as William Shelton bangs in
from three yards out to make it 6-to-nothing Eagles.
Shawsville would return the favor as Paul Sink turns this recpetion of a
Chris Graham pass into a touchdown as the Shawnees tied the game at 6-all.
But that was it as Auburn makes it a happy homecoming with the 21-to-6 win.
The James River Knights were back in Buchanan tonight, but were they back
down to earth a week after shutting out defending state champ Bath County?
Tonight the opponent was WINLESS Covington.
SUPER=51-Buchanan/Covington vs. James River; :00
Who else would be there to crash the Pioneer party tonight but the Parry
McCluer coaching staff which took advantage of this off-week to do a little
We pick it up with James River on top 13-to-nothing and on the move, as Brian
LeFlore blasts through the line for 18 yards and his second TD of the evening
to make it 21-to-nothing.
The Knights would strike again early in the fourth quarter when Travis
Blankenship handsoff to Jimmy Thompson from the two, the ball is knocked loose
into the end zone, and Le Flore pounces on it for his third TD of the night.
It's was 28-to-nothing before Covington avoided the shutout with Brent May
pitching to Grover Price who scores from 21 yards out but the River rolls to
the 28-to-7 win.
The Knights dedicated the win to Eric Austin, a teammate who was injured in a

got an eyeful of the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers tonight.
SUPER=51-Appomattox/Jefferson Forest vs. Appomattox; :00
Homecoming at Bragg Stadium was about all Appomattox had to celebrate
tonight, because by the time Ashley Lofton in the red coat was crowned
Homecoming queen Jefferson Forest was on its way to a win.
Early in the first, The Cavaliers Frank Wade bangs in from the one yard line
to give the Cavs a 7-to-nothing advantage.
The Raiders would answer that though with senior tailback Forrest Mayes
taking the handoff and going 65 yard for the score. "Run Forest, Run!!!"
And Appomattox ties the game at 7-all thanks to the speedy Forest.
The Cavs wasted little time striking back with Wade scoring again and
Jefferson Forest beats Appomattox to stay perfect against double A competition,
the final 37 to 15.
And finally, we head down to Pittsylvania County where the Gretna Hawks
hooked up William Campbell in a Dogwood district battle.

We pick it up with William Campbell's Eric Pannell scoring off tackle from
the one to giver the Generals a 6-to-nothing in the first quarter.

Yuills (YOULLS) picks off the pass and SUPER=52-William Campbell/36/Gretna/8;
sets up another scoring opportunity.
Dominique Dews caps off that drive with a short run and William Campbell
grounds the Hawks 36 to 8.
