Sometimes change is good, but there is nothing wrong with The Mercury's Super Six - which remained unchanged once again following last weekend's games.
1. POTTSGROVE (11-0): The Falcons beat old nemisis Strath Haven for the second year in a row. Except for that opening drive and the quarterback sneak that went for a touchdown to open the second half there, they didn't give much up at all defensively, either. Good, solid win for the Falcons, who now face Henderson - unquestionably their biggest challenge of the season yet in the District 1-AAA semifinals.
2. SPRING-FORD (10-1): The Rams picked up their school's first and the entire Mercury area's first win in the District 1-AAAA playoffs by defeating Garnet Valley. Next up is No. 2 seed Ridley down in Folsom that, contrary to most critics, is a winnable game.
3. PERKIOMEN VALLEY (8-3): The Vikings closed out their season with a come-from-behind win up at Saucon Valley. With a noticeable group of underclassmen returning, they could be the team to watch next year.
4. PHOENIXVILLE (6-5): The Phantoms' bid to return to the District 1-AAA final came up short following a loss at Interboro. They'll have time to regroup for the Thanksgiving Day game at Spring-Ford, which right now could be Thanksgiving Eve (like last year).
5. METHACTON (6-5): The Warriors capped off a 4-1 run down the stretch with a lopsided win over Norristown last weekend for their second straight winning season.
6. POTTSTOWN (5-6): The Trojans broke a number of single-game and single-season records last Friday night in their double-overtime win against Great Valley. On Thanksgiving morning over in Bucktown, they'll have an opportunity to finish at .500 for the first time in head coach Brett Myers' brief career guiding the program.
