Two losses in one night

Floyd County High School's varsity football team lost their homecoming game to Fort Chiswell Friday night.

The Buffaloes lost more than the game: They also lost starting quarterback Matt Hollandsworth (right), who left the game with a broken collarbone in the second quarter.

Playing on a cold, misty night, the Buffaloes never got on track. Fort Chiswell trapped Hollandworth for a safety on the first quarter, then scored to go up 8-0 after a two-point conversion failed. The Buffaloes finally got on the board in the second quarter but Hollandworth went down on two-point conversion attempt.

Referees called back a touchdown from a fumble recovery because of a block from the back.

The loss drops the Buffaloes to 1-3. We haven't heard yet how long Hollandsworth is expected to be out but we wish him a full and speedy recovery.
