Football: Pennsbury 7, Neshaminy 0

With another solid effort on defense, Pennsbury blanked host Neshaminy Saturday afternoon at Harry E. Franks Stadium to clinch its second outright Suburban One League National Conference championship in four seasons.

The Falcons (8-2 overall, 7-0 conference) limited the Redskins (7-3, 5-2) to 148 total yards (62 rushing, 86 passing) and seven first downs.

The only score came in the final minute of the first half. On a waggle-seam call, quarterback Breon Clark hooked up with halfback Shwan Pepper for a 34-yard touchdown.

On the play, Clark first faked a handoff to wingback Tommy Hose, moving right to left. Pepper, gaining a step on free safety Cole Creighton, hauled in the throw across the middle.

For the Falcons, Pepper carried 19 times for 73 yards. Fullback Daquan Mack rumbled nine times for 48 yards.

Pennsbury's defense was led by Hose, fellow linebacker Charlie Fisher, and ends Sykeem Steward and Chad Hensor.

In the game's last minute, with Neshminy at the Pennsbury 17, Pepper's sack of QB Joe Falkowski forced a fumble that was recovered by Steward. Game over.

For the Redskins, tailback Nate Hall rushed 16 times for 52 yards.

Pennsbury, as the No. 6 seed, will host No. 11 West Chester Rustin a first-round PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoff game next weekend; No. 13 Neshaminy will hit the road against No. 4 Plymouth Whitemarsh.
