LOWER POTTSGROVE — With a pregame tribute to U.S. service members known as “Operation American Pride” providing the backdrop, Pottsgrove hit the field for Friday night’s Pioneer Athletic Conference showdown against Spring-Ford clad in camouflage pants.
It proved to be an appropriate choice of attire for a much-anticipated battle of the top two teams in the PAC-10.
While things remained pretty much up for grabs after a first half filled with trench warfare, the Falcons’ infantry took over in the final 24 minutes on the way to a 26-0 victory over the defending league champion Rams.
Tailback Mark Dukes ran for all but 14 of his game-high 138 yards in the second half and also scored two TDs and quarterback Tory Hudgins (74 yards) and fullback Nick Brennan (30) each ran for scores as the Falcons (4-0 PAC-10, 5-0 overall) avenged last year’s 49-35 loss to Spring-Ford.
