Lake Forest wins opener

Lake Forest 3, Deerfield 1

Lake Forest victorious in first game of host tournament 

The Skinny: In the first game of the season for both teams, Lake Forest showed more offensive punch. The Scouts scored two first half goals which held up for a 3-1 victory over Deerfield in the first round of the Lake Forest Tournament. 

Turning Point: The game was scoreless until Lake Forest junior John O’Connor forward broke free from a Warriors defender outside the Deerfield goal box. He deposited a shot past Deerfield senior keeper Troy Kayne to make it 1-0 Scouts 15 minutes into the first half. 

The Star: Scouts senior John Moderwell. An all-conference player as a junior, the midfielder showed off his deft passing touch in assisting younger brother, sophomore Matt Moderwell, on Lake Forest’s second goal of the game with 15 minutes remaining in the first half. 

By the numbers: Lake Forest controlled 60 percent of the game’s possession. Junior Paul Passalino scored the Scouts third goal one minute into the second half. Senior Ryan Kaplan was responsible for the Warriors lone goal. 

Quotable: “We played pretty well, were able to get some offense going. I thought it was a good first game. We’re looking forward to our next few games in the tournament,” John Moderwell said.
