4:22: Libertyville has its first, first down at its own 42.

5:10 Neither team has been able to move the ball much. Lake Forest has one first down on its opening drive. Andrew Clifford has started at quarterback, and no sign of Jordan Beck at this point.

Owen Williams has been much of the offense so far, gaining 15 yards on three carries.



Jordan Beck is dressed and is punting during pre-game warmups. The brace on his injured left elbow begins at mid-forearm and stretches up into his upper arm. Exactly how that will impact his play tonight is to be determined. Still about 10 minutes to kick-off.

Libertyville has brought back its 2004 state championship football team in honor of coach Randy Kuceyeski, who is retiring at the end of this season after 18 years. He has been battling throat cancer for the past year. Tonight is possibly the final home game for the Wildcats.
