Every game is a big game for playoff hopefuls
Most area football fans would agree there aren’t any marquee games on this weekend’s calendar. Just don’t try to pass that logic onto those who follow Perkiomen Valley, Spring-Ford, Pottsgrove and Phoenixville.
All four – especially Phoenixville – need to continue their winning ways to keep pace in the District 1 playoff points standings.
Perkiomen Valley, arguably the most improved team since the season opened last month, is situated in a tie with Downingtown West for seventh place in the district’s AAAA standings. Spring-Ford improved two spots from last week and is now 12th, or somewhat comfortably inside the Top 16 that qualify for the postseason.
Unbeaten Pottsgrove, meanwhile, is still on top of the AAA bracket. Phoenixville, which has dropped two of its last three games, is in the eighth and last spot.
So, with just four games remaining before the math is completed and the points standings are finalized, rest assured every game from here on in is a very important and very big game for the four area teams.
