Thaddius Smith of Cardinal O'Hara breaks through the line en route to his game-winning 23-yard touchdown run with 3 minutes, 34 seconds to play in the fourth quarter. Pursuing him is Haverford's Darren Watson (22). O’Hara overcame a 12-point deficit Saturday to defeat the Fords, 13-12, in a nonleague football game at Haverford. (Lou Rabito/Staff)
