SHARE Leo comes from behind to take down Lake Forest Academy

Lake Forest Academy dropped its third game of the season Saturday, falling at Leo, 29-19.

The Caxys (0-3) scored a season-low 19 points, though the 29 points they allowed were also the fewest in any game. The Lions (3-0), meanwhile, played in their tightest game of the season after a 27-2 win over St. Ignatius in the season-opener and then a 47-0 win over St. Joseph.

Lake Forest Academy opened a 13-3 lead, as quarterback Chris Karamanos rushed for two touchdowns in the first half. But Leo countered with 20 unanswered points and went ahead on a short run by quarterback Mallik Prince in the third quarter.

The Caxys had a chance to retake the lead in the fourth, but fumbled a punt return that was recovered by Leo.
