From the time the Spring-Ford girls basketball team began to annually take on Mount St. Joseph Academy seven years ago, it became a special rivalry virtually overnight.
In the 2006-07 season, the Rams came away with a hard-fought one-point victory. The following year, Mount St. Joe’s returned the favor by taking a triple-overtime thriller.
That’s been pretty much the case each time since the two squads have locked horns.
Tonight, the “magical” rivalry will add yet another chapter when top seed and defending champion Spring-Ford (26-2) meets second seed Mount St. Joseph Academy (25-2) for the District 1-AAAA championship at 7 p.m. at Villanova University.
