A heartbreaker loss to start the season

Floyd County High School's varsity football team opened the season against arch-rival Christiansburg Friday night and came within one pass of a win.

With the game tied 14-all, Christiansburg picked off a Matt Hollandsworth pass at the one-yard line with just under two minutes left and won in overtime with a 27-yard field goal from a player who had never kicked one before.

Floyd led 14-7 at halftime but Christiansburg held the Buffaloes scoreless in the second half and scored the one touchdown they needed to tie up the game before the end of regulation play.

Daniel Bradford tied a school record with 10 receptions for 125 yards. Hollandworth was trying to reach Bradford one more time when Christiansburg picked off his pass.
