Scouts Star Performer: Junior Safety Regis Durbin
Two defensive touchdowns by Durbin, including a game-changing 52 yard fumble recovery in the third quarter, completely changed the game for Lake Forest. Durbin's second defensive score late in the 4th quarter accounted for the final points in the game.
Other Notable Scout Performance: Senior Quarterback Andrew Clifford
Andrew Clifford had one of his best games when it mattered most. Clifford was 27-of-42 passing for 288 yards and three touchdowns. Just as important, he had no turnovers.
Whose next? The Scouts get at least one more homegame as they host Lake in a re-match of their Week 2 game, won by Lake Forest.
The Bottom Line: In a game many won't forget for a long time, Lake Forest showed grit and resiliency in winning on the road in the playoffs. Down 21 to 7 at halftime, they stuck to their offensive game plan and got two defensive scores to beat a very good Rolling Meadows team.
