No.2 Lake Zurich 45, Mundelein 0

THE SKINNY

The Bears breezed past the home team, Mundelein, in a North Suburban Lake clash. Lake Zurich used a varied running attack, the passing of quarterback Noah Allgood (5-for-8, 68 yards, two touchdowns) and solid special teams to put the game out of reach early with a 31-0 halftime lead.

TURNING POINT

Leading 17-0 with a little over seven minutes left in the second quarter, senior defensive back Dominic Scaduto blocked a Mundelein (1-3, 0-2) punt and fell on the loose ball in the end zone near the south pylon to put the Bears (4-0, 2-0) up 24-0.

THE STAR

Sophomore Ben Klett hauled in a 26-yard touchdown catch (two catches, 44 yards) and followed that up with a 35-yard touchdown run (four carries, 44 yards).

BY THE NUMBERS

Speedy senior Dylan Schassler had eight carries for 108 yards and a 31-yard touchdown run.

QUOTABLE

“We definitely have a lot of weapons on offense. We have quite a few guys that can break one for a touchdown at any time so it helps keep the defense on their toes,” – Dylan Schlasser
