On the West Campus turf come 6 PM Friday night, both the Lake Forest Scouts and the Lake Zurich Bears will be looking to earn a piece of hardware to represent the 2016-17 season. The Scouts, who come in with a record of (12-4-1, 4-2) on the heels of a recent overtime victory over Palatine in the Regional Semifinal, face off against the Lake Zurich Bears, who come in with a record of (15-5, 5-2) and a 7-0 victory over Hersey in their Regional Semifinal. This match-up is sure to be an even contest as Lake Zurich comes in as the #4 seed while Lake Forest holds claim to the #5 seed.
In their first match-up of the season at Lake Zurich, the Scouts came up short and were shutout by the Bears. This time, however, with added experience to their multiple freshman starters, the Scouts are looking to even the season series and capitalize on this winner-take-all match to advance to the Sectional. The winner of Friday night’s contest will advance to face the winner of the Mundelein High School Regional which features Mundelein High School and Barrington High School. The Sectional will be held at Warren High School and will begin next Tuesday.
