After slow starts from both teams and a scoreless first quarter, the Friars struck quickly in the second quarter scoring two touchdowns in three minutes. O’Shaan Allison scored on a run up the middle from ten yards out. Malvern QB Nick Maras followed that up with a nine yard fade pass in the corner of the end zone to Mike Fay.
Roman Catholic responded with a 6 minute, 18 second drive that took them down to the Friars’ one yard line with under a minute left in the first half. Two QB sneaks on second and goal and third and goal were stuffed by the Malvern defense. However, as time expired in the half Roman Catholic finally converted the sneak and crossed the goal line to cut the lead to seven going into the half.
The two teams traded punts without any scoring in the second half until Nick Maras found Rashon Lusane on a crossing pattern for a 13 yard TD halfway through the fourth quarter.
The Malvern win was then sealed with a 29 yard run from Zac Fernandez with one minute left.
“We started off slow but we got the job done,” said senior wide receiver defensive back Rashon Lusane. “We got the job done and that’s all that matters.”

Malvern opens up its Inter Ac season next Friday night at Episcopal Academy.
“We’re coming to win the Inter Ac,” said Lusane. “We’ll go hard all week to win [next week].”
