Lake Forest Trounces Zion in Scouts Homecoming Football Game 41-13

One week after the teacher's strike forced them to forfeit a game against Lake Zurich, the Scouts take their frustration out on the Zee-Bees.


The Final Score: Lake Forest 41, Zion 13. Lake Forest improves to 4-1 on the season.

Scout Star Performers: It’s getting repetitive, but Quarterback Andrew Clifford and running back Hub Cirame. Clifford was masterful, throwing for 166 yards and a touchdown on 15-of-21 passing. Cirame was terrific again, rushing for 99 yards on nine carries and three touchdowns. 

Other Notable Scout Performances: The defense. For the third time this year, the first team defense pitched a shut out (Buffalo Grove and Highland Park were the other two games). Lake Forest pulled it’s starters after jumping out to a 41-0 halftime lead. 

Who’s Next: The Scouts play their last home game Friday against Libertyville at 7:30 p.m. 

The Bottom Line: Lake Forest was on a mission after being forced to forfeit last week’s game against Lake Zurich due to the teacher’s strike. They poured it on early and often against the hapless Zee-Bees. The decisive victory won’t make up for the Lake Zurich loss, but it was a memorable homecoming at Varsity Field.

The Scouts are having a wonderful season. So sorry the LFEA and BOE couldn't have worked all of this out over the summer, so that the students, who are the innocent bystanders, wouldn't have had to suffer....
