After three weeks of failing to score extra points after touchdowns, and winning without them, Floyd County High School’s varsity Buffaloes football team scored an important two extra points on a run by quarterback Kaleb Fenton in overtime at Carroll County to take an 20-18 point win over the Cavaliers Friday night in Hillsville.
After a Cavalier attempt for a field goal failed with the regulation game clock at 0:00 failed, Fenton passed to put the Buffaloes ahead 16-12 in the first play of overtime, then added the two extra points after a string of extra point failures in three straight games.
Carroll County came back with a touchdown pass in the next set of plays but needed a two-point conversion to tie the game back up and failed when the Buffaloes stopped the attempt just short of the goal line, given Floyd County it’s fourth straight win of the season.
A Buffaloes’ cheerleader injured her arm in a fall during a routine in the game and was treated at the Emergency Room at the hospital. Our prayers for a swift recovery.
