THE SKINNY

No. 3 Lake Zurich (6-0 overall) remained unbeaten, thanks a 42-point NSC Lake crossover blowout that had a running clock for a large part of the night.

TURNING POINT

The Bears defense set the tempo early, forcing punts on all of Antioch’s first-half possessions. Things were already out of hand by the end of the first quarter, as Lake Zurich raced to a 28-0 lead by the end of one.

THE STAR

Lake Zurich carried the ball 37 times for 332 yards and senior Nick Tsiapas ran 14 times for 151 yards, including a 61-yard third-quarter touchdown.

BY THE NUMBERS

In addition to Tsiapas, Noah Allgood (one rushing TD, one passing TD), Ben Klett (two rushing TDs), Nate Repplinger (rushing TD) and Zane Lodico (rushing TD) all found the end zone. Wide receiver Brent Sweetwood was the recipient of Allgood’s 26-yard pass for a score in the second quarter.

QUOTABLE

“Our offensive line felt like we owed it to the other guys who don’t see a lot of playing time, We wanted to make sure we gave them a chance to get out there tonight, especially being homecoming.” — Lake Zurich senior offensive lineman Chris Tsiapas
