Lake Forest 35 - Kaneland 10

For the first time in three games, the Scouts didn't have to come from behind in the second half of a game; instead, they got on the board in the first quarter on a Richie Hoskins' one-yard run and a Colin Sloan kick for a 7-0 lead with 4:25 left in the first quarter--which put them in the lead for good as a result of a balanced Scout offensive and defensive attack throughout the game.

The Scouts scored again in the first quarter after an interception by Connor Morrison led to a touchdown on 15-yard run by Hoskins along with a PAT by Sloan for a 14-0 lead with 1:18 left in the first quarter.

The only score in the second quarter was a 32-yard field goal by Kaneland for a 14-3 Scout lead at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Scouts had a turnover when they received the second-half kickoff, but the defense prevented Kaneland from scoring when they got the ball.  Once the Scouts got the ball back on downs, they marched 81 yards, and Max Uihlein scored the first of his three touchdowns on a four-yard run and a PAT by Sloan with 7:29 on the clock---Score: 21-3 Scouts. 

Leo Scheidler ended a Kaneland drive with an interception later in the third quarter and the Scouts went on a 74-yard drive culminating in Uihlein's  second touchdown on a three-yard run with 2:46 left in third quarter--Score: 28-3 Scouts

Uihlein's third touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a two-yard run with 6:20 left in the game. Score: 35-3 Scouts
