For a second straight week the Malvern Prep Friars utilized a second quarter surge to propel themselves to victory.
In the Inter-Ac league opener for both teams, Malvern Prep moved to 1-0 in league and 5-1 overall, while Episcopal Academy slipped to 0-1 to start off league play.
A scoreless first was highlighted by two Malvern Prep turnovers, an interception by quarterback Kevin Doyle and a fumble by wide receiver Ian Murray. However, the Episcopal Churchmen could not capitalize.
The second quarter opened up with a 1 yard rushing touchdown from sophomore O’Shaan Allison. Allison took every carry in the first three quarters for the Friars as his fellow Friar running back Zac Fernandez.
Allison followed up that touchdown by punching it in from three yards out with 3:07 left to play in the second quarter.
The Churchmen responded with an incredible 21 yard run from Dee Barlee. Barlee broke multiple tackles and used three to four single pushing efforts to cross the goal line.
However, the Friars took the momentum into the locker rooms at the half as Kevin Doyle found Rashon Lusane on a deep pass to the end zone with six seconds left in the half.
The second half was highlighted by multiple plays from O’Shaan Allison. Allison caught a touchdown in the third quarter, then scored his third rushing touchdown of the night in the third quarter.
Allison finished with 32 carries for 194 yards and 3 TD’s, along with one thirteen yard receiving touchdown. All other MP stats attached below.
“We stuck through it and we got a good win,” said senior lineman Nick Leasure. “We ran the ball and our defense played really well.”
Episcopal Academy will face off against Germantown Academy next week (10-24, 1:30 PM @ GA), while Malvern will face the Haverford School(10-24, 2 PM @ MP).
“[The Haverford School] has beaten us three years straight, so this is the game of the year,” said Leasure. “We’ve been licking our chops for this one all year.”
