Spring-Ford, Perk Valley in a gimongous game

GRATERFORD — Noah Webster would likely be appalled by some of the additions to the American Dictionary of the English Language he published 184 years ago. But the ol’ fella would likely be OK with gimongous.
After all, there isn’t a better word to describe tonight’s football game between Spring-Ford and Perkiomen Valley.
This one is indeed big. It’s actually really, really big.
The winner, in all likelihood, will be playing next week in the opening round of the District 1-Class AAAA playoffs. The loser? Well, if the Rams come up short, there is a possibility they could drop out of the Top 16 allotted postseason spots and find themselves idle for 20 days — or until Thanksgiving morning’s finale with Phoenixville. If the Vikings falter, it could and likely will mean the end of their season, unless a slew of unlikely scenarios unfold — or upwards of three or possibly even four teams above them in the playoff points standings lose this weekend.
Sure are a lot of ifs and possibilities...
