Football Buffaloes hold Patrick Cougars scoreless, win 20-0 on a cold, blustery night

Football on a Thursday night? Yep, thanks to COVID-19 and a short regular season that brought delays, cancellations and changes.

Strong defense from the Floyd County High School Buffaloes stampeded the Patrick County High Cougars in Stuart Thursday night in blustery, frigid weather that swept over the field but did little to cool off a hot team that shut down the home team’s offense and shutout the regular season with a 20-0 win.

More details and photos in next week’s Floyd Press.

The closing game of the truncated regular season, scheduled after Radford High had to shut down because of a second outbreak of COVID-19, opened an opportunity for us to photograph and film the opening of Floyd Country Store’s plans to open a second season of the Backyard Jamboree, also a product of the pandemic, but Mother Nature kept the chill in the air on Friday and the moved the opening to next Friday, April 9, at 6 p.m.

Let’s hope the Jamboree will be back inside soon.
