Lake Forest 49, Round Lake 0
Lake Forest had its way with the Round Lake defense, scoring on six of its first seven possessions. The Scouts’ defense wasn’t that far behind, holding the Panthers to no gain or negative yards on a majority of their rushing attempts.
Lake Forest (4-0) held Round Lake (1-3) to -2 yards on its first drive and Hub Cirame scored on the fourth play from scrimmage to open the scoring and set the tone for the rest of the night.
It’s tough to single out one player on a Lake Forest defense that forced nine plays of negative yardage in the first half alone. Colgate-bound linebacker Trent Williams always seemed to be in the mix and picked up a sack.
BY THE NUMBERS
Round Lake was held to less than 50 yards of total offense, a total Cirame easily eclipsed by himself. Lake Forest ended up with almost 400 yards, more than 300 of which came on the ground.
“We got some penetration and made it hard on them. We made it an east-west game.”— Lake Forest coach Chuck Spagnoli
