Wild Bill’s Weekly Sports Roundup

by Bill Turner

Readers, I humbly apologize. I take full responsibility with much regret. If this were football, I’d surely get a referee’s flag for undue celebration.

Undoubtably, most of you opened this week’s edition of The Star-Sentinel only to discover smoke billowing from the sports section. It was the remnants from my illegal Cuban cigar that engulfed your presence. A celebratory stogie after last week’s perfect 11-0 prediction performance.

My thanks to everyone who offered their congratulations, and others who likewise made note that I took advantage of a timely seance to overcome the challenges of eleven tough matchups. I’ll try to address a couple of your questions about the paranormal in today’s mailbox, but first, let’s take a look at this week’s games.

Halifax County at Patrick Henry: The Blue Comets invade Gainer Field to take on a PH team that has only two losses to a pair of defending state champions. Most often, comets burn out before hitting the ground. Patrick Henry- 38     Halifax County- 12

Lord Botetourt at Staunton River: One team will get its first win in the Blue Ridge. The two got beat by a combined 80-0 score last Friday. Home team get the nod. Staunton River- 27   Lord Botetourt-16

William Byrd at Northside: Byrd is on a three-game winning streak; Northside is 7-0 and looking stronger each week. Big clues in those numbers: Northside- 41  William Byrd- 13

Cave Spring at Blacksburg: Cave Spring got over a big hurdle with a last-minute win over Pulaski last week. Blacksburg is still looking for its offensive direction. Sam Wright may be on cruise control in this one. Cave Spring- 40   Blacksburg- 10

Salem at Christiansburg: Both teams are 2-0 in the River Ridge showdown. Salem has a way of hanging tough, but it may be a push to expect a win.

Christiansburg- 34 Salem-20

Pulaski County at Hidden Valley: The Cougars looked too good for an 0-7 team last Friday at Bogle Field. Pulaski’s return to SW Roanoke may again go down to the wire. Hidden Valley- 21    Pulaski County- 19

Glenvar at Radford: A close Three Rivers matchup may be in store. Glenvar is smarting from Giles, while Radford is looking to keep pace with the Spartans. Radford- 28    Glenvar- 27

Carlisle at North Cross: Hey, it’s on the schedule. I can’t help it if somebody won’t show up to play. Raiders improve to 6-3 heading to their regular-season finale at Virginia Episcopal. I take pride in accuracy. North Cross- 2  Carlisle- 0

Roanoke Catholic at Fuqua: The Celtics stand at 6-2 while Fuqua has lost three straight after a 3-0 start. Roanoke Catholic seems to like road games. Roanoke Catholic- 26  Fuqua- 23

Now, straight to the seance-filled mailbox.

Dear Omniscient Wonder: Taro, Taro, Keekoman. Would you consider gracing our presence with a short presentation on seances at the Women’s Auxiliary for Charismatic Kinetic Occurrences? (Hyacinth/Bedford and beyond)

Answer- I’d be honored, Hyacinth. But, a couple of questions first. Your organization’s acronym has me concerned. Plus, you mention next month’s meeting will be on Mars. I’ll need directions.

Dear Wildest One: Did you get any signals from the other side after your 11-0 week? (Marcie/Tuggles Gap)

Answer: Amazingly, yes, Marcie. As the last seconds ticked off Saturday’s game at North Cross, I heard the Victory Concerto in D-Major. Must have been Liberace sending his congrats.

See you next week, and send those ????s to: [email protected]
