Sun Valley holds on to beat Unionville, reach Class 5A semis

By Steve Moore

The Sun Valley lead over Unionville, which was 11 points at halftime, had been cut down to one. 

The large Unionville crowd was making the bleachers shake, and a lesser team would not have been excused it it succumbed to the pressure.

But Sun Valley has proven this season that it is far from a “lesser team.”

Vinny DeAngelo took a feed from Dom Valente and buried a three, for three of his game high 34 points, in a stellar performance that also included five rebounds and four assists, as the Vanguards held on and defeated the Indians, 60-46, Saturday night in the quarterfinal round of the District 1 Class 5A playoffs.

The win puts Sun Valley (17-7) into Wednesday night’s semifinal against Pottsgrove at Norristown High School at 5:30 p.m. The win also puts Sun Valley into the PIAA Class 5A playoffs for the second year in a row. Unionville will travel to Holy Ghost Prep in the playback round Wednesday at 7 p.m. A win there would secure a state berth, while a loss would end Unionville’s season.
