One of the more important things in sports is responding well after a loss. On Saturday afternoon, the Lake Forest varsity football team did just that. The Scouts delivered over the weekend with an impressive 42-0 victory over the Waukegan Bulldogs.

 

Needing a hot start to get things rolling, senior quarterback Tommy Hanson punched the ball in for a one yard touchdown to make things 7-0 early. The touchdown capped off a nice drive for the Scouts which saw them cover the length of the field. Shortly after the opening touchdown, Coach Spagnoli’s bunch turned defense into offense as senior defensive back Eddie Scheidler recovered a fumble and Jacob Thomas pushed the lead to 14-0 with a three yard touchdown run.

 

Even with an early lead, neither the defense nor the offense slowed down. Senior wide receiver Ryan Cekay caught a 26 yard touchdown pass from Tommy Hanson after another Bulldog fumble which pushed the lead to 21-0 with 5:26 left in the first quarter. To cap off the first quarter, Jacob Thomas added two touchdown runs making the score 35-0 after one quarter of play. Thomas finished the first quarter with 50 yards rushing and three touchdowns.

 

The scoring ended in the second as Cekay caught another 26 yard touchdown pass from Hanson to make the score 42-0 with 5 minutes left in the half. The Scouts looked dominant on both sides of the ball and took care of business to secure the road victory by 42 points.

 

Leading the way on defense were Scheidler and junior Michael Daniels who forced two turnovers of his own with an interception and fumble. Junior Rylie Mills led the team with four tackles. On offense, Hanson completed nine of fifteen passes for 133 yards and two touchdowns. Thomas led the running backs with 58 rushing yards on six attempts and Cekay led the receivers with 72 yards and two touchdowns.

 

While no one was surprised to see Lake Forest defeat Waukegan, the dismantling which took place should be exciting for Scouts’ fans. With three games left and a record at 3-3, Spagnoli’s team does not have much room for error down the stretch needing six wins to earn an automatic playoff bid.
