HELLERTOWN — Perkiomen Valley never feels it’s out of a football game. Not with its no-huddle offense, not with its quick-strike capability.
And not even after falling behind by three touchdowns after a little more than a quarter, as in Friday night’s season-ending, non-league contest at Saucon Valley.
Even then, it took the Vikings almost the rest of the evening to finally catch and go ahead of the Panthers. PV tied it on a 72-yard touchdown run by Mark Bonomo midway through the fourth quarter, took its first lead of the game on a 39-yard scoring toss from Rasaan Stewart to Dakota Clanagan with 2-1/2 minutes to go, and then stopped the hosts at the two-yard line as time ran out to preserve a thrilling 42-35 win.
The well-balanced, big-play offense for Perkiomen Valley (8-3) ran up 505 total yards. Saucon Valley (4-7) racked up 462 yards of its own, with junior running back Nick Savant dodging and darting his way to 298 yards and four touchdowns on 38 carries.(For the complete story, click here...)
