Staff report

SALISBURY — Livingstone defeated Allen, 21-7, here Saturday afternoon at Alumni Memorial Stadium — the Blue Bears’ third straight victory.

“We’re happy to be 3-0,” said Livingstone coach Daryl Williams. “We had a chance to play a lot of people and it was good to get another win. I’m happy with where we are, but we’ve just got to keep moving forward.”

The Yellow Jackets’ bus had a flat tire on the way from Columbia, S.C., and arrived late. The 4 p.m. kickoff was pushed back to 4:30.

When the game did get started, Livingstone jumped on Allen behind two touchdown passes from sophomore quarterback Miles Hayes and a TD on the ground from senior running back Andrew Faraimo.

All of the Livingstone scoring was in the first half, taking a 21-0 lead to the locker room.

Anthony Brown scored the game’s first touchdown, taking a screen pass from Hayes and finding the end zone. Deandre Vickers scored the other TD through the air on a slant pass from Hayes.

The Blue Bears could have had a 28-point first half, but a penalty erased a nice, 50-yard punt return by Jamond Handy that at first, appeared to be a touchdown. However, a yellow flag brought it back.

Allen had the only score in the second half, as the Blue Bears missed on several opportunities.

“Yes, I’m disappointed that we didn’t score in the second half,” said Williams. “We missed two field goals and had some drives that stalled out. We had some drops on routine passes. We’ll get to work on that.”

Allen’s last chance to get back into the game came late, but Livingstone safety Monte Seabrook made an interception to ice the contest.

Livingstone returns to action next Saturday, with a long road trip. The Blue Bears go for their fourth straight win at Lincoln in Pennsylvania. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. Livingstone topped Lincoln, 30-0, last year at home.

NOTE: Allen is a second-year program. Livingstone shut out the Yellow Jackets, 19-0, last season in Columbia.
