Lake Forest 7 - Glenbrook South 6
Congratulations to the Varsity Boys' Lacrosse team who won a hard-fought battle vs Glenbrook South.

The game was an emotional roller coaster of a game. The Scouts and GBS were within one goal of each other for the first half of the game, with heavy offense vs offense lacrosse. GBS went up by three goals in the third quarter, to make the score 6-3. The Scouts had to come back with a huge 4th quarter rally, slowly picking off goals against GBS's defense. The Scouts thought the game was done, and the season was over, when the score was 6-4 with two minutes left. Key goals by Bobby Winebrenner kept the momentum of the game alive.

Bobby won the offensive player of the game award for his heart and determination to pull out a win. Junior goalie, John Walsh, once again won the defensive player of the game for his key saves and stopping GBS's offense. Another key player was Nate Field, who was awarded our team's hockey puck for most valuable goal. The puck was first given to senior midfielder George Schouttle, who passed the puck to Junior attack man Nate Field for "bailing him out."

The Scouts will play Glenbrook North in the Sectional Finals on Friday at 6:00PM on LFHS Varsity Field.
