When you think of passionate fan bases and intense rivalries in sports, your mind immediately turns to Pennsylvania high school softball, and the latest game between Perkiomen Valley and Pottstown just proves that cliché to be true.

The Vikings of Perkiomen Valley put up a 47–0 lead on Pottstown in just three innings before the slaughter rule went into effect, and some Twitter users are not happy with the high-scoring affair.
