Lake Forest 56 - Libertyville 19

A packed house at Libertyville witnessed another strong performance by the Scouts' (5-1, 4-0) offense and defense. After a week off because of a forfeit by Waukegan last weekend, the Scouts were "ready and raring to go both offensively and defensively!" 

The game started with a Libertyville drive between quarterback Connor Dickson and wide receiver Kristian Gavric for 19-, 24- and 15-yard completions resulting in a 7-0 lead with 9:11 on the clock in the first quarter.

The Scouts countered with a 74-yard touchdown drive, ending with a 59-yard touchdown pass from Leo Scheidler to Cade Nowik to tie the game at 7-7.

The Scouts then scored three unanswered touchdowns, two of which involved Scheidler and Nowik before Libertyville's Dickson and Gavric could score again with 36 seconds left in the half to make the score 29-13. The ensuing kickoff bounced to state track sprinter Jahari Scott's hands, who then proceeded to run 71 yards for a TD and a 36-13 half-time score. 

Nowik did not return for the second half due to injury.  Late in the third quarter, Scheidler made the score 42-13 on a 16-yard run.  At 1:13 left in the third quarter, Libertyville's Andrew Scott produced the Wildcat's final score when he returned a kickoff 99 yards. Score 42-19.

In the fourth quarter, Scott added a one-yard TD run and Robert Pasinato intercepted a pass and returned it 55-yards for a touchdown resulting in the final score: 56-19.
