10/16/12 Lake Forest 0 – Conant 4 The Scout's season came to a close at the hands of the Conant
Cougers. In a match between the #8 & #9 seeds, a large part
of the outcome was always going to be based on which team would be
able to assert themselves on the game. Conant did just that and
managed to get their noses out front with a breakaway goal against
the run of play early in the first half. LF continued to play
well, but could not find a an equalizer before halftime. In the
second half, the Cougars were able to add to their lead with 2 goals
that deflected in on corner kicks, and a counter-attack goal in the
closing minutes of the game.
The Scouts finish off the season with a record of 6-11-2. The
LFHS Soccer Awards Banquet will be on Tuesday, November 6, at 6:00
10/10/12 Lake Forest 7 – North Chicago 0 The Scouts finished off the regular season in style with a
resounding victory on Senior Night.
LF got their possession game going early as they patiently worked
the ball around to carve an opening in the compact Warhawk defense. Midway
through the first half, a diagonal ball from John Roberts found Sean
McCauley open on the left wing, and his early cross was met by Adam
La Vitola to volley home the first goal of
The Scouts increased the tempo of their passing in the second half
and put the game out of reach early. Peter Passalino scored
twice after being played through on goal. John Moderwell added
another after rounding the keeper. Freshman Keegan Kullby scored
his first career goal with a long-range laser beam. The scoring
was finished off by seniors Baba Sosan and Jeff Zillner....finishing
off their careers with their own first career varsity goals.
The Scoutsbegin their assault of the IHSA State
Tournament at the Hoffman Estates HS Regional vs. Conant on 10/16/12
10/9/12 Lake Forest HS 2 – Lake Forest Academy 2 Lake Forest put it one of their best performances of the season
as they battled to a 2-2 with LFA.
Again an early goal against, put our Scout heroes behind the 8-Ball,
but they improved greatly as the first half continued. A precise
pass put Peter Passalino clean through on goal, and after he lifted
the ball, the advancing keeper collided with Passalino, conceding
a penalty kick.
John Moderwell dispatched the PK in the corner to tie the score. It
was not long after that a interchange of passes allowed Matt Moderwell
to send Adam La Vitola bearing down on goal to rifle a shot high
into the top corner.
The second half went back and forth with the Caxys equalizing the
score at 2-2. The Scouts were led in the back by Jack Sentell’s
10 saves, and Mitchell Talbot’s tackles. The Scouts, will
finish off the regular season with Senior Night vs. North Chicago
on 10/10/12 at 6:15pm.
10/2/12 Lake Forest 2 – Lake Zurich 3 The Scouts came out on the wrong end of another high scoring
LF found themselves a goal down before the fans had even taken their
seats, and within three minutes were two goals behind.
A fine response was needed and that is what the team gave, as it
was not long before a patient build-up allowed Adam La Vitola to
feed Jack Duffy, who fired in a left-footed shot to make the score
The Scouts controlled the second half of the game, but unfortunately
gave up a goal at the back post to make the score 3-1. Again
the Scouts fought back with a Peter Passalino free kick making the
score 3-2. Only a spectacular save by the LZ goalkeeper from
another Passalino free kick kept the Scouts from equalizing.
The Scouts, will make the crosstown trip to play the Lake Forest
Derby vs Lake Forest Academy to at 4:30pm on 10/9/12,
and will finish off the regular season with Senior Night vs. North
Chicago on 10/10/12 at 6:15pm.
10/2/12 Lake Forest 3 – Libertyville 5 In a crazy game full of thrills and spills, the Wildcats held
on to beat the Scouts. Despite playing some great possession
soccer in the first half, LF found themselves down 3-0 at halftime
due to three counter-attack goals.
The second half, missing 3 starters, the Scouts mounted a frenzied
comeback. Mitchell Talbot scored his first career varsity goal
with a flick header from a Keegan Kullby free kick.
Sandwiched in-between 2 Libertyville goals, Adam La Vitola buried
a penalty kick to score a second goal after Peter Passalino was brought
down in the 18-yard box,. Karl Morcott added a third goal as
he fired in a volley following a goalmouth scramble.
Jack Sentell made 5 saves in goal, while Jack Duffy and David Hayes
each had 3 tackles to lead the Lake Forest defense.
Despite the score line, it was one of the top performances of the
season for the Scouts, who next travel to Lake Zurich to play the
Bears at 6:15pm on 10/4/12.
09/29/12 Lake Forest 1 – Glenbrook South 4 Another off day for the Scouts as the visiting Titans finished
the day with a 4-1 win. The first goal of the game came in bizarre
circumstances as a flip-thow-in was ruled to have been deflected in
at the back post.
The Scouts responded well and created chances of their own and
got the deserved equalizer when Jack Duffy’s perfect pass set
up Peter Passalino to score at the back post.
The second half saw more LF pressure, but GBS got themselves back
in front with a breakaway goal. The Titans extended their lead
on a post-corner kick goalmouth scramble. A fourth goal was
added on another breakaway.
Yuri Duggan made 6 saves in goal and Karl Morcott emerged with 5
tackles for the Scouts. The LF record is now 5-8-1, as they
travel to play the Libertyville Wildcats on Saturday 10/2/12.
09/27/12 Lake Forest 0 – Stevenson 4 The Scouts struggles continued as the visiting Patriots emerged
with the victory. Goals in the opening and closing minutes of the first
half enabled Stevenson to wrestle control of the match.
LF were able to create chances but could not finish any of them. Two
more goals in the second half sealed the win for the Patriots.
Adam La Vitola made 4 tackles in the midfield battle, while Jack
Sentell made 6 saves in goal. The Scouts record is now 5-7-1,
as they host the Glenbrook South Titans on Saturday 9/29/12.
09/24/12 Lake Forest 1 – Warren 5 The host Blue Devils put on an impressive display in downing
the Scouts 5-1.
Warren was able to take the lead in the 15th minute and add to
it soon after. The Scouts responded quickly, forced a few
chances, and got a goal back. John Roberts was wrestled to
the ground in the penalty box, and Peter Passalino rifled in the
ensuing spot kick for his eighth goal of the season. The Scouts played
well for the remainder of the half, but were undone with a couple
of Warren goals late in the half.
In a fast and frenetic second half, Warren got the only goal on
a penalty kick of their own.
Mitchell Talbot was forced into 8 tackles to lead the Scout defense;
as goalkeeper, Jack Sentell made a season-high 11 saves. The
Scouts record is now 5-6-1, as they return home to host the Stevenson
Patriots on Wednesday 9/27/12.
09/22/12 Lake Forest 2 – New Trier 3 In a titanic tussle against old rival New Trier,
the Scouts finished on the wrong end of a 3-2 score line.
The first was relatively even until the Trevians got on
the board after a perfect diagonal through ball.
LF responded well, and after a corner kick was only
partially cleared, Jack Duffy’s flick was met by Adam La Vitola’s
perfect, first-time, laser beam from outside the box, which flew
into the corner of the net.
Unfortunately, a NT cross was blocked by LF, only
to have a Trevian follow up on the rebound to make the score 2-1. Soon
after, a deflected corner at the Scout end came out to a Trevian
defender, whose long shot squeezed in at the near post.
The Scouts responded well in the second half and
had the better of the chances. After an excellently timed diagonal
run, Peter Passalino was sent in alone on goal by La Vitola, to make
the score line 3-2. LF continued to put pressure on the New Trier
goal, including a handful of near misses at the back post; however,
Lake Forest was not able to find the equalizer. The defensive
effort was led by Chris Janeck’s extraordinary 13 tackles. The
Scouts record is now 5-5-1, as they return to NSC Lake Division
play versus the Warren Blue Devils, on Monday 9/24/12.
09/20/12 Lake Forest 7 – Grant 1 LF’s unbeaten streak extended to 4 games, with a 7-1
victory over the host Bulldogs.
The Scouts dominated the first half, putting immediate pressure
on Grant, and got on the board when John Moderwell crossed for Peter
Passalino to fire home from close range.
The second goal came soon after, as Baba Sosan made a great run
into the box to distract the Bulldog defense, Passalino blasted in
a shot high at the near post.
The second half was a strange period as Grant played very well and
mounted an aerial bombardment of the Scouts defense and soon after
the restart got on the board. LF was under a lot of
pressure, but were able to counter attack very effectively.
Captain Adam La Vitola sent Moderwell through on a breakaway to
score the third goal.
After a neat give-and-go with Moderwell, Passalino completed his
hat trick and scored the fourth.
Moderwell then scored his second goal and Lake Forest’s 5th,
with a rocket free kick.
The final two goals came on counter-attack breakaways by Robert
Schyns and John Roberts.
Chris Janeck led the defense again with 5 tackles, as Jack Sentell
(4 saves) and Yuri Duggan (5 saves) shared the goalkeeping duties.
Lake Forest improves to 5-4-1 on the season.
09/11/12 Lake Forest 4 – Zion-Benton 0 The Scouts extended their undefeated streak to 3 games after
a victory over the visiting Zee-Bees. LF had the ball in the
back of the net in the 1st minute, but the goal was correctly ruled
offside. The Scouts did not have to wait too much longer to score
when John Moderwell picked up a loose ball in midfield and dribbled
into the box to finish expertly in the bottom far corner. Following
a corner, the loose ball fell to Adam La Vitola, and the midfielder
volleyed an unstoppable shot into the top of the net.
2nd half, LF extended their lead when Karl Morcott overlapped down
the left wing, crossed to Peter Passalino, who then served up the ball
for Moderwell to get his second goal of the game and third of the season. The
scoring was complete when Robert Schyns won the ball just outside of
the box, dribbled around the keeper and scored. Goalkeepers Jack
Sentell (2 saves) and Yuri Duggan (3 saves) shared the shutout with
Scouts defense--led by Sam Dannaker’s 6 tackles. The Scouts
record evens up at 4-4-1.
09/09/12 Boys' Soccer trip to University of Notre Dame to attend game
between #13 Notre Dame versus #4 Akron. (more
09/08/12 Lake Forest 0 - Glenbrook North 0 In a very even match, the Scouts and the Spartans
battled to an 0-0 tie. There was not much difference between
the two teams: Both sides had chances
to score, with GBN hitting the post twice and having the edge in shots
and shots on goal. The Scouts managed 7 shots on target, while
the Spartans forced LF’s goalkeeper Jack Sentell into 14 saves
on his return to the lineup. Lake Forest defense earned their
3rd shutout of the season, led by Chris Janeck’s 4 tackles. A
tie is a fine result considering LF’s tough battle the night
before. The Scouts’ record moves to 3-4-1.
09/07/12 Lake Forest 3 – Buffalo Grove 2 The Scouts produced their finest display of the season with
a 3-2 victory over an excellent Bison squad. BG were first
to score after a nifty header from a left-wing cross. LF immediately
responded and exerted pressure on the Bison defense. It paid
off when after exchanging passes with Peter Passalino, John Moderwell
burst through the back line to cross for John Roberts to blast home
from close range. Soon after, Passalino was tripped from behind
and stepped up to rifle the free kick into the top-left corner from
30 yards. Soon after halftime, Adam La Vitola’s long
pass was swept across the face of the goal by Robert Schyns for Passalino
to score his 3rd goal in two games. The drama was only just
beginning as a number of injuries-- including to GK Yuri Duggan (6
saves)--forced the Scouts to dig deep. Senior Defender Kevin
Nelson donned the goalkeeper jersey for the last 20 minutes, and
despite conceding a late goal, made 6 saves to help the Scouts earn
a well deserved 3-2 win. In front of the goal, LF’s defense
was led by David Hayes’ 4 tackles.
The Scouts improve to 3-4-0 on the season.
09/04/12 Lake Forest 1 – Mundelein 3 Despite playing some great attacking soccer, Lake Forest fell
to Mundelein in the first game of the Lake Division of the North Suburban
The Mustangs got on the board early with an accurate
long drive. They
doubled their lead after a fortunate deflection. The Scouts
then got into the game and a bevy of near misses before Peter Passalino
was able to hammer in a rebound. Unfortunately, Mundelein was
able to add a third goal just before halftime. LF continued
to press to get back into the game, but was unable to cut into the
lead. The Scouts defense was led by Mitchell Talbot and Henry
Levy with 3 tackles each.
The Scouts record fell to 2-4-0.
08/30/12 Lake Forest 1 - Niles North 0 Highlights: Goal: John Moderwell; Assist: Peter
Passalino; Shutout: Yuri Duggan 6 saves
got back on the winning track with a narrow 1-0 victory over the host
Lake Forest had most of the early possession and continued to create
chances that one by one went narrowly wide or over the crossbar. Midway
through the second half, the Scouts were forced to defend
a corner kick. After defending the set piece well, Peter Passalino
and John Moderwell counter attacked to perfection, and Moderwell
finished off the move with a rocket shot into the top left corner.
The Scouts improve to 2-3-0 on the season.
North Shore Shootout
0 – Lane Tech 2
The Scouts again came up just short in a very even contest on Lake
Forest’s Varsity Field. The visiting Lane Tech squad
settled quickly and knocked the ball around comfortably. Yet,
once LF grew into the game, they were able to get their passing
possession game going. However, LT got on the board first
with a piece of great combination play to score in the 19th minute. The
Scouts battled back with a couple of attacks, but unfortunately
gave a second goal just before halftime on an excellent shot that
ricocheted into the net off the post. Despite a few near
misses, the Scouts were not able to get on the scoreboard in the
second half. Goalkeeper Yuri Duggan made several excellent
stops and finished with 6 saves in total. The Scouts record
moves to 1-3-0.
8/25/12 North Shore Shootout Lake Forest 0 – Highland
In a closely contested match, the Giants prevailed by a single goal. Both
teams had opportunities--the goalkeepers from both teams were up
to the task. HP got on the board midway through the second
half, and despite a few late chances on set pieces, the Scouts could
not even the score. The Scouts record is now 1-2-0.

The Scouts gave a great effort, but came up short against an excellent
Round Lake team. The visiting Panthers started quickly, but
Scouts ‘keeper Jack Sentell made 2 fine saves on point blank
opportunities. Lake Forest had chances of their own, but
it was Round Lake that were able to tally a couple of goals before
halftime. Two more excellent goals in the 2nd half secured
the victory for the Panthers and sealed their spot in the Championship
game. The Scouts advance to the 3rd place game to play Highland

goalkeeper made the initial save, but Duffy was able to force the
ball into the net.

so deeply. A varsity athlete in high school and college in both
soccer and lacrosse,
Chris used his sports whenever he could to help others less fortunate
than him. As Chris did, the
foundation has continued to 1) support organizations that are
committed to supporting young people living with cancer and 2)
help disadvantaged young people who have a desire to pursue sports,
music and travel. Read
more about the organizations receiving support from the Christopher
Quon Foundation in this newsletter.
Chris wanted to make a difference in the world. With the help
of the LFHS Boys soccer teams, his spirit of giving will continue.
