On the night when his No. 1 football jersey was retired, Sharif Smith scored all of Furness' three touchdowns and ended his career by helping the Falcons claim the South Philly Bowl with a 20-14 overtime win against visiting Prep Charter on Wednesday.
Smith, a 6-foot, 185-pound senior who is the school's all-time leading rusher, scored on runs of 1 and 22 yards in regulation and added a 3-yarder in overtime.
The Furness defense then stopped Prep Charter's possession in overtime and preserved the nonleague win.
Mastbaum 16, University City 14 - Frank Quiles scored on a 7-yard run with 7 minutes, 21 seconds remaining as the Panthers (3-9) edged visiting University City (3-9).
Mastbaum scored in the first half with Keith Bolden's 5-yard run and Jimelkin Bofrey's 31-yard field goal.
The Jaguars' biggest play was Quawdire Gordon's 67-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Spring-Ford 27, Phoenixville 21 - Jarred Jones ran for a pair of scores, including the game-winner with 7:15 left in the fourth period, as Spring-Ford clinched the Pioneer Athletic Conference championship with the triumph at Phoenixville.
Phoenixville (9-4 overall, 5-4 league), which will play for the District 1 Class AAA championship on Saturday against Pottsgrove, battled back to tie the game at 21-21. Justin McDougal's short TD run was followed by Alec McQuiston's conversion pass to Justin Andrews, setting the stage for Jones' 31-yard game-winner for the Rams (10-2, 9-0).
