LOWER POTTSGROVE — When Perkiomen Valley’s Rasaan Stewart opened the second half Friday night by unloading a picture-perfect, 73-yard touchdown pass to Davon Mitchell, you couldn’t blame the Pottsgrove defense for thinking it might not be its night.
After all, the Vikings — with skill people galore such as Stewart, running back Mark Bonomo and wideout Clay Domine — were pretty much having their way against the Falcons’ heretofore impenetrable ‘D.’
They hung up 21 first-half points on a unit that was allowing an average of just 8.4 a game, then Stewart’s strike to Mitchell put the Vikings up seven points in a highly anticipated clash of Pioneer Athletic Conference unbeatens.
“That’s the best offense we’ve seen all year,” Pottsgrove coach Rick Pennypacker said. “Stewart and Co. had us confused. We didn’t know what we were doing.”
Instead of succumbing, however, the Falcons found a way to survive.
