Scouts struggle against Stevenson when ground game is slowed.
LAKE FOREST — All season long, there has been a question lingering around Lake Forest’s football program: Can the Scouts win when a team slows down their running game, specifically leading rusher Hub Cirame?
Friday night, Stevenson shut down Lake Forest’s normally commanding rushing attack. The Scouts were beaten soundly, 20-6.
“Everyone’s disappointed,” senior center Peter Durot said. “I don’t think we played our best game.”
Lake Forest rushed for 83 total yards on 30 attempts, an average of 2.7 yards per carry. Through the team’s first seven games, the Scouts had rushed for 232 yards per game and 6.5 yards per attempt. Cirame was held to 25 yards on 13 carries, his lowest total since becoming the Scouts’ starter last season.
