MAHOPAC, N.Y. -- Dobbs Ferry High's football team was running clock, on its way to a title Friday night facing top-seeded Woodlands in the Class C championship game at Mahopac High School, when a hiccup - in the form of a fumble - almost cost the Eagles dearly.

But Dobbs Ferry's Jack Capuano forced another fumble moments later, which sealed a 21-14 victory, giving the Eagles their second consecutive title.

Dobbs Ferry (7-2) will take on the Burke Catholic/Millbrook winner Saturday, Nov. 12 at 4 p.m. at Mahopac High School in a state quarterfinal.

Woodlands scored twice in the third quarter to even the game at 14-14, before the Eagles' Najee Smith - who scored all three Dobbs TDs - found the end zone on a two-yard dunk with just under two minutes left for the final margin.

Smith finished with 138 yards on the ground, earning Offensive MVP Honors. Woodlands' Aaron Robertson, playing for suspended starting QB Amari Bilal, had 147 yards on 16 carries. Falcons lineman Omar DeBerry earned Defensive MVP honors.
