ROYERSFORD >> Not pretty and it didn’t need to be. 

For advancing is the only necessity in the district playoffs. 

Spring-Ford, led by a quartet of players that scored in double figures, shook off its first-half rust to dispatch No. 24 Avon Grove 59-54 in the opening round of the District 1 Class 6A boys basketball playoffs Friday night at Spring-Ford. 

“This time of the year, any time you get a win it’s a good thing,” Spring-Ford head coach Chris Talley said. “We kind of expected to start off slow with a hangover from the (PAC) championship game and having an inservice day. We battled, we made it ugly and we grinded it out.”
