George Rocco, Phoenixville boys' basketball coach, knows he is going to have many difficult games this season, like tomorrow night's at Pottsgrove, so his approach has been to try to have fun. Currently riding a 9-1 start (6-1 in the Pioneer Athletic Conference), the Phantoms have made life fun for Rocco thus far. They are tied with Spring-Ford and St. Pius X atop the league, with Lansdale Catholic (5-2) and Pottsgrove (4-3) not far behind. Rocco thinks any of those teams can finish in one of the league's top four spots and earn a league-playoff berth.

The numbers and letters on the large, rectangular digital scoreboard shined like a luminescent tease: "Time: 11:48. Ball on 43. 1st and 10. " Its glare was a stark contrast to the darkness that had consumed Thomas J. Keenan stadium. The overflow Perkiomen Valley crowd was eager to voice its support for its 7-1 Vikings, who were hosting 8-0 Pottsgrove in a game that could go a long way in deciding the Pioneer Athletic Conference title Friday night. However, the stadium lights went off after the opening kickoff, sending the crowd into a temporary frenzy and delaying the game's start for 20 minutes.

Maika Polamalu ran 10 yards for a touchdown, and Zach Robinson added the extra point to lift Pottsgrove to a 28-21 overtime win over Interboro last night at Coatesville for the Falcons' first District 1 Class AAA football championship. While Polamalu and Robinson took care of the winning points, it took a great defensive play by Angelo Berry to preserve the win for the 14-0 Falcons. Berry broke up a pass play on the Bucs' fourth-down play in their first overtime series. The Bucs won the coin toss for the overtime and chose to go on defense.

The Pottsgrove High football team yesterday lost one of its two appeals to regain a berth in the District 1 Class AAA playoff game. The Pottsgrove School District's request for a temporary restraining order to stop the game between Methacton and host Great Valley on Saturday was denied by Judge Bernard A. Moore at the Montgomery County Court House in Norristown. The PIAA also heard an appeal on the case yesterday and said it would announce its decision this morning. The forfeiture came because of Pottsgrove's use of an ineligible player, Londun Ricketts, a transfer from neighboring Pottstown High, during an Oct. 28 game against Owen J. Roberts.

With his team holding a one-point lead with a little more than two minutes to play, Patrick Finn thought of last year. Last season, Pottsgrove allowed a late fourth-quarter touchdown and lost to Academy Park by a point in the District 1 Class AAA football semifinals. Friday night, Academy Park drove the ball to the Pottsgrove 28-yard line, trying to take the lead in this year's quarterfinals. Finn, a Pottsgrove defensive tackle, lined up for a third and 22, and couldn't help but see the similarities between the games.

The celebration was everything you would expect from a game-ending single in the 11th inning of a conference semifinal. There was jumping. There was hugging. For AnaMarie Bruni, the player who provided a spark all afternoon for Perkiomen Valley, it was an awesome experience. It also hurt. After Rachel Helverson crossed the plate to give the Vikings a 4-3 win over Pottsgrove at Spring-Ford, the players converged on her, and one another. Amid the hoopla, a teammate poked Bruni, Perk Valley's shortstop, in the left eye. Afterward she had ice on it. Something else is bound to make her eye feel better, however.
