WALTHAM — By the time Waltham senior Dana Parello intercepted Ben Colello’s pass at the goal line, the game was all but over, the Hawks just under a minute away from winning the Division 2 North title.

But Parello, Waltham’s quarterback and defensive back, couldn’t resist taking advantage of the open field in front of him. He darted to the sideline, then turned up field for a 100-yard score, capping the Hawks 34-7 win against Lincoln-Sudbury Friday night at Leary Field.

It was a fitting ending to a game Parello dominated. He rushed for two touchdowns, threw for another, and recovered two fumbles on defense, one of which he forced.

Waltham (7-2) will face Division 2 South winner Mansfield (10-0) next weekend in the state semifinals.
