When Kennedy (1-4, 0-2 Mission Valley Athletic League) took a 29-28 lead on a 2-yard touchdown run by Waymond McKissick early in the third quarter, Washington (4-2, 3-0) didn't panic.

The Huskies reeled off 22 unanswered points en route to an MVAL win at Tak Fudenna Stadium.

"We talked at halftime that we needed to go back to the basic game, do nothing fancy," Washington coach Ken Wittmer said.

Washington threw for 294 yards and rushed for minus-4 yards in the first half. In the second half, the Huskies threw for 30 yards and got 131 yards on the ground.

"We use the pass to set up the run, that's what we do," Wittmer said.

Washington quarterback Kyle Malpede was 21 of 26 passing with 324 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. On the ground, Eddie Adams had 92 yards rushing on 18 carries and scored a touchdown.

Malpede's top target was Ahmed Aryobi, who caught nine passes for 135 yards. He also had four rushes for 16 yards that included a 5-yard touchdown run with 3:34 left in the third quarter that gave Washington a 36-29 lead -- a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Kennedy quarterback Justin Staley was 9 of 20 passing with 210 yards and a pair of touchdowns. His top receiver was Atu Ohafi, who caught three passes for 135 yards that included a 74-yard touchdown reception midway through the second quarter that cut Washington's lead to 21-15. Teammate Joel Romero had 138 yards rushing on 27 carries and a touchdown.
