The Lake Forest defense can wreak serious havoc on an opponent.
In a 31-19 win over Warren Friday, the Scouts’ defense started hounding Warren’s offense immediately. On the first play from scrimmage, Warren’s quarterback made a swing pass to his running back in the flat to his right. As soon as the back caught the ball, he was tackled for an 8-yard loss.
The Scouts held Warren to 163 yards and just one touchdown through three quarters as they jumped out to a 31-7 lead. A big part of that success came from Lake Forest’s ability to stop Warren behind the line of scrimmage.
“I thought our perimeter pressure did a pretty good job of containing, and then our inside guys were able to get good pressure,” Lake Forest coach Chuck Spagnoli said. “When you get all the guys working together, they all play really hard.”
The Scouts’ defense stopped Warren behind the line of scrimmage nine times Friday, including five sacks. Lake Forest was able to get pressure in the backfield from all levels of its defense. Senior defensive back Geno Quaid had a sack in the second quarter. Junior linebacker Nicholas Monfardini and senior lineman Oliver Babnik each got to the Warren quarterback in the fourth quarter.
