Call it a Tale of Two of Two Football Games.

Actually, it was a Game of Two Half’s and they appeared to be different with two different strategies and teams.

Floyd County High School’s varsity football Buffaloes traveled a long road from the football field to the locker room, trailing the Radford bobcats 16-7 after a half of of missed opportunities, and an interception.

The Buffaloes returned for the second half with a return to basic, pounding ground play,

With 15 plays, the Buffs marched 80 yard down the field before Jarrett Agee plunged into the end zone to tighten the game and then kept the Bobcats out of the end zone to win 29-16 in a key district win and a crash course of football the old-fashioned way.

Sticking mostly to the ground in the second half, the Buffs scored 22 unanswered points in the second half with two touchdowns from Agee and a final 66 yard rush by quarterback Ian Bary to ice the game /

Presley Yates pled up 169 yards and  two TD, while Agree added two more scores and 64 yards of rushing.  Bary scored the final touchdown and ended the night with 83 rushing yards.

The win puts the Buffaloes record so far this year at 6-1 overall and 2-1 in the Three Rivers District.  The Buffs face another tough battle next weekend on the road against Glenvar.

Presley Yates scored two touchdowns with 31 carries and 169 yards.
