KINGSTON — The Ped­die School likes to uti­lize the up­tempo spread of­fense.

That was surely on dis­play as quar­ter­back Al­lan Wal­ters threw for 331 yards and five touch­downs in lead­ing the Fal­cons to a 62-0 vic­tory over Wy­oming Sem­i­nary on Satur­day af­ter­noon at Nes­bitt Me­mo­rial Field.

Lead­ing the way for the Fal­cons were Mau­rice Bel­lan, who caught five passes for 129 yards and two TDs; Mar­lyn John­son, who caught five passes for 123 yards and two scores; and Ju­lian Les­lie, who chipped in with six catches for 79 yards and a touch­down.

“I thought that we played well to­day” Ped­die coach Chris Malleo said. “We are im­prov­ing each and ev­ery week.”

It didn’t take the Fal­cons long to put points on the board. On their third play from scrimmage, Christo­pher Chuk­wuneke took a hand­off and raced 25 yards up the mid­dle for the score.

Af­ter forc­ing a Wy­oming Sem­i­nary punt, the Fal­cons needed seven plays to cover 75 yards. Key in the drive was a 28-yard pass from Wal­ters to Bel­lan to keep the drive alive. It was the same com­bi­na­tion from Wal­ters to a wide-open Bel­lan with a 38-yard scor­ing pass.

Fol­low­ing an­other Blue Knight punt, Bel­lan hauled in a Wal­ters pass over the mid­dle of the field, Bel­lan made a juke move to his left and scam­pered un­touched 36 yards for the score.

On Wy­oming Sem­i­nary’s next play from scrimmage, line­backer Javar Garrett stepped in front of a screen pass and bolted 35 yards to the house.

Chuk­wuneke ended the first pe­riod of play for the Ped­die School as he took a hand­off 18 yards for the Fal­con touch­down.

Mid­way through the se­cond pe­riod, Wal­ters hit Les­lie with a 43-yard scor­ing pass down the left side­line.

Once again the Blue Knights were forced to punt the ball away. Wal­ters hit a wide-open John­son from 38 yards out for the Fal­con score.

Late in the pe­riod the Ped­die School em­barked on a five-play, 50 yard drive. On a third and 5, John­son hauled in a 37 yard pass from Wal­ters to keep the Fal­con drive alive. Two plays later, Wal­ters hit John­son with an 8-yard fade pass in the end zone to end the first half.

Bel­lan ended the scor­ing for the game as he took a hand­off and dashed 69 yards for the Fal­cons touch­down.

“We have a group of kids that love Wy­oming Sem­i­nary and each other,” Sem coach Jim An­der­son said. “Start­ing with the coaches, and the play­ers, we need to iden­tify ways that we need to im­prove for us to com­pete at this level.”
