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 PM.

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 game.

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 Scouts begin their assault of the IHSA State Tournament at the Hoffman Estates HS Regional vs. Conant on 10/16/12 at 6:30pm.

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 affair.

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 2-1.

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. 

In the 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.

09/08/12
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 Conference schedule.

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
The Scouts got back on the winning track with a narrow 1-0 victory over the host Vikings.

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.

08/27/12
North Shore Shootout
Lake Forest 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 Park 1
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.

North Shore Shootout
Lake Forest 0 – Round Lake 4
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 Park.

North Shore Shootout
Lake Forest 1 - Carmel 0
The Scouts got their 2012 season off to a winning start with a narrow victory over the visiting Carmel Corsairs.  The first half was back and forth, but the Scouts were able to get their noses in front when a Peter Passalino pass was met by Jack Duffy.  The Carmel goalkeeper made the initial save, but Duffy was able to force the ball into the net.

The Corsairs applied most of the pressure in the second half, but the Scouts defense led by Karl Morcott (6 tackles) and 'keeper Jack Sentell (10 saves) led the brave resistance of the Lake Forest defense. The Scouts advance to the tournament semi-finals to play Round Lake on Thursday, 8/23 at 4:30PM.

Christopher Quon Alumni Game
Date:  Saturday, August 18, 2012
Time:  3:00 – 8:00 PM

Location:  Varsity Field
Download the schedule for the evening & ALL info here

On August 18, all levels of Boys soccer will be playing their Blue/Gold games at West Campus at 3:00PM.   At 5:15PM, the Boys Varsity team will also be hosting its annualAlumni game/Fundraiser, “The Christopher Quon Alumni Game.”  The game is named in honor of Chris, a LFHS 2005 graduate and varsity soccer player, who unexpectedly lost his life from heart failure at the age of 22 in 2009. Also honored at this year's game is longtime LFHS and LFSA soccer supporter, Jim Gorand, who passed away last fall.

From 3:00-6:15pm, a raffle/auction will be held in order to raise monies toward the CHRISTOPHER QUON FOUNDATION (http://christopherquonfoundation.org/about/). The foundation was established to honor Chris’ memory by using the funds to support all that Chris loved and cared about so deeply. A varsity athlete in high school and college in both soccer and lacrossaction shote, 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.

Enjoy a game under the lights, support our teams as they kick off their new season, cheer on our alumni, enter a chance to win some great prizes--and most of all, help honor Chris and the Quon family.

#4 Fremd 2 - #5 Lake Forest 1
The Scouts’ fantastic season came to an end in the IHSA Regional Final.  Fremd scored two goals a minute apart midway thought the 1st half.  Lake Forest battled away to get back into the game and had a few chances before halftime.  Halfway through the 2nd period, the Scouts halved the lead when Niko Svigos back-heeled a goal during a scramble following a corner kick.  Credit must go to Fremd who managed the rest of the game superbly and claimed their Regional Championship.  The Scouts finish the season with 14 wins, 5 losses and 1 tie, as the North Suburban Conference Champions.

#5 Lake Forest 2 - #12 Conant 1 (2OT

In a great IHSA Regional Semi-Final game, the Scouts were the ones who advanced.  Conant started the faster of the two teams, and midway through the first half, scored the opening goal on a breakaway.

The Scouts did not panic and began to get a hold of the game before halftime.  Lake Forest continued to improve in the second half with the midfield of Ian Forlow, Michael Shipp, Adam La Vitola, and Kevin Goon asserting themselves.

The equalizer came with less than 5 minutes to go, when a Peter Passalino knock down from a John Moderwell cross found Kevin Goon in the penalty box, and he turned and fired in a low shot to tie the score.

The match went into overtime with the Cougars having the better play in the first overtime with the wind.  In the second overtime the Scouts took control. After Passalino laid off the ball to Goon, he found Moderwell, who flicked the ball over the keeper for James Ankenman to finish the move to give the Scouts the sudden victory!

Lake Forest advances to take on #4 Fremd on Friday at 5:30pm at Fremd High School

Lake Forest (13-4-1) 2, New Trier 1

After a hard-fought game just 24 hours earlier, the Scouts responded with a nice come-from-behind victory over the always tough Trevians. The contest began very evenly as both teams looked to dominate possession. However, it was the NT attack that drew first blood to lead 1-0. The Scouts did not take long to answer and after great work in the box, Peter Passalino beat his man, then centered a ball that John Moderwell got to first to put in the far corner to even the score. Not long after some quick passing through the middle from Moderwell, Michael Shipp sprung Niko Svigos free in the box and he was able to beat the keeper with his shot.

The second half saw much of the same ebb and flow, but as the game wore on New Trier applied more and more pressure; however, GK Devin Gregory and the Scouts defense held firm--including a late flurry in the final 10 seconds.

The Final Bug award of the regular season goes to the most excited recipient. Tricky John Roberts tried to trip up the Trevians! 

The Scouts finish the regular season with a 13-4-1 record as they head into the IHSA tournament against Conant of Hoffman Estates at Fremd High School, 7 pm, Tuesday, October 18.


10/13/2011 North Suburban Conference Championship Game
Lake Forest 3 - Lakes 2
In a great Championship game, the Scouts came out on top 3-2!
NSC championship  trophy
Despite not seeing much of the ball in the opening minutes, Lake Forest took the lead when a deep Ian Forlow free kick was flicked past the Eagles goalkeeper with the feintest of touches by Kevin Goon.  Lakes responded almost immediately when they capitalized on a turnover and equalized.  As the first half drew to a close, the Scouts thought they had seized control of the game when Adam La Vitola played a ball into Peter Passalino, who turned and ripped a volley into the net.  However, the Eagles again equalized just before halftime, when a close offside decision went their way, and they tied it up.
 
With about ten minutes gone in the second half, the Scouts had possession deep in the Lakes half.  John Moderwell was able to beat his defender down the left wing, and when his cross was not handled cleanly by the goalkeeper, James Ankenman was on hand to stab home his 3rd goal in 4 games.
 
Lakse applied tremendous pressure in the final minutes and had a couple of great chances that brought stunning saves from GK Sam Audley, but they were unable to get a third goal as  the Scouts shut them out to the final whistle.
 
During a haltime ceremony, the NSC honored a player from each team in the conference, who displayed sportsmanship to players, coaches, and officials this season.  The Lake Forest recipient was senior goalkeeper Sam Audley
 
Lake Forest won the NSC Championship in their first appearance in the 12-year old title game, and their first conference championship since 1989.

The Scouts' record improves to 12-4-1.
 
This evening's 'BUG' award for being sure-handed and eagle-eyed against the Eagles goes to SAM AUDLEY. Read more about the game in this article.

Lake Forest HS 2 – Lake Forest Academy 2
In another exciting local derby, the Scouts and the Caxys battled to a 2-2 tie on LFHS Senior Night. The Scouts got on the board first when a long shot by Ian Forlow was partially saved, and Riley scored on the rebound. The Academy got back even when a long cross was partially cleared, and the ball fell to a Caxy midfielder, who volleyed into the goal from the top of the box.

In the second half, LF regained the lead when a Kevin Grube corner took a couple of deflections and spun crazily across the line. LFA responded with added pressure and equalized in the final minutes with a great curling shot from the corner of the box.

The Scouts won the JV game 1-0, thanks to a penalty kick won and converted by Baba Sosan.

Between games the LFHS soccer program honored the 17 members of the Class of 2012 and thanked them and their parents for all of their efforts for the past 4 seasons.

A huge “THANK YOU” to Kathleen Shipp & Laura Kennedy and all the parents for coordinating the celebration.

Lake Forest 2 – Lake Zurich 0
LAKE FOREST WIN NORTH SUBURBAN CONFERENCE LAKE DIVISION !!!
The Scouts finish off their NSC Lake Division play with a 5-1-0 record after a 2-0 victory over the Bears.

Lake Forest started very slowly, and the first 20 minutes of the game were played entirely in the Scouts’ half, as LZ dominated possession.

Slowly, LF got into the game and created a couple of chances prior to halftime.  Following the interval, the Scouts asserted themselves in the game and got the opening goal when James Ankenman intercepted a Bear pass in their box and blasted a right-footed shot into the far corner.  As Lake Zurich pushed players forward to get the equalizer, the Scouts created dangerous counter-attack opportunities and finally got a second goal when Tim Boyle nodded a ball over the Bear defense for Johnnie Moderwell to then float a header over the keeper into the far side of the goal.  Sam Audley made 6 saves to preserve the team’s seventh shutout of the season.

The win pushed the Scouts overall record to 11-4-0.

The BUG AWARD Winner for tonight’s game for battling the Bears goes to James Ankenman!

Lake Forest 2 – Libertyville 1

The Scouts came away with the result in a pulsating encounter with the Wildcats.  Lake Forest got on the board midway through the first half when Michael Shipp found James Ankenman inside the box.  Ankenman swiveled and rifled a shot across the keeper and into the far corner.  After a couple of close calls, the Scouts took the 1-0 lead into halftime.  In the second half, the Scouts added to their lead when Ian Forlow scored another wonder goal with a left-footed effort into the top right corner.  It was all hands to the pump for the remainder of the game as Libertyville put constant pressure on LF, despite the Scouts looking dangerous on the counter attack.  Libertyville did get a goal with 20 seconds remaining on the clock.

The BUG AWARD for being willing and able against the Wildcats goes to Niko Svigos

10/1/2011
Lake Forest 2- Glenbrook South 3
The Scouts fell to the Titans in a heart-stopping encounter.  GBS took the lead midway throught the 1st half when a long ball into the wind eluded the Scouts’ defense, and a Titan forward was able to score.

Early in the second half, South scored on a header from a long throw.  A furious fightback from the Scouts ensued, and LF scored when after a great run, Niko Svigos was upended in the GBS box.  Ian Forlow buried the resulting penalty kick.  Soon after another GBS foul, Forlow fired a free kick into the box that John Moderwell was first to, and he finished to level the scores.  Unfortunately after great pressure from the Scouts, another wind aided, bad bounce allowed the Titans in to score the game winner.

The signed ball donated by the Scouts with artwork by LFHS student Jenny Alaimo raised $85 during the halftime auction to benefit The Cystic Fibrosis Institute of Glenview.

This afternoon's BUG AWARD winner goes to Ian Forlow

Lake Forest 2 – Stevenson 0
The Scouts improved their record to 9-3 (3-1 NSC Lake) with a shutout victory over the host Patriots.  Stevenson started well and had the better of the play until the 12-minute mark when Karl Morcott took a throw-in, John Moderwell flicked it on to Peter Passalino, who scored his 5th goal of the season.  The goal settled down the Scouts, who defended very well despite a barrage of passes aimed directly at the heart of the Scouts’ defense.  It took until the 7th minute of the 2nd half for the Scouts to get a second goal when a fluid counter attack involving Passalino and Michael Shipp resulted in Moderwell being tripped up just outside the box.  Ian Forlow’s free kick forced a great save from the Patriot ‘keeper, but Shipp was on hand to fire in the rebound for his 3rd goal of the season. 

Stevenson continued to pressure the LF defense; however, Scout defenders--including Kevin Grube, Kevin Goon, and David Hayes--stood firm in front of goalkeepers Sam Audley (8 saves) and Devin Gregory (2 saves) for the team’s sixth shutout on the season.

The BUG AWARD for his steadfast persistent perseverance versus the Stevenson Patriots is awarded to Peter Passalino.

Lake Forest 6 – Wauconda 0
The Scouts got back to winning ways in resounding fashion by defeating the visiting Bulldogs.  From the opening kick-off, the Scouts immediately set to possessing the ball in the opponents half, to break down Wauconda and create chances.  LF midfielders dominated the game, and after a couple of near misses, Lake Forest got the opening goal when Peter Passalino squared the ball across the box for John Moderwell to score his 4th goal of the season.  James Ankenman scored his first varsity goal when he was played in by a neat pass from Michael Shipp for the second.  The third goal was claimed by Kevin Goon when Michael Shipp rifled a corner into the goalmouth.  The final goal of the 1st half was scored by Alex Wesolowski when he arrived at the back post in perfect timing to finish Ankenman’s cross. 

In the second half, the Scouts added two more goals.  Karl Morcott’s grand, diagonal ball from left to right was ripped home by Passalino.  The final goal came when Adam La Vitola’s quick pass found senior Tim Boyle, and after a nifty touch he beat the Bulldog keeper.  John Roberts, Mitchell Talbot, Sean McCauley, and Chris Janeck helped the Scouts defense, in front GK Devin Gregory, record the team’s fifth shutout in the last 8 games.

The BUG AWARD for Bulldozing the Bulldogs goes to Tim Boyle.

9/20/11
Warren 2 – Lake Forest 1
In a great game, between two top teams, the Blue Devils emerged victorious.  Warren took the lead midway through the first half when a hard shot was saved by GK Sam Audley, but a Blue Devil was first to the loose ball to score on the rebound.  In the second half, the Scouts came back into the game and had plenty of good possessions, but found scoring opportunities hard to come by.  Warren added to their lead when a cross from the wing sailed in at the far post.  The rest of the game saw the Scouts control most of the play, and got a goal back on a sensational Ian Forlow free kick in the last 5 minutes.  Despite a heroic effort all the way to the final whistle, LF could not get an equalizing goal.  The Scouts record is now 7-3-0 and  2-1 in the NSC Lake Division. Daily Herald Report

This evening's BUG award for battling the Blue Devils goes to Adam LaVitola

9/17/11
Lake Forest 3 - Evanston 1
The Scouts improved their record to 7-2-0 with a good win in a high-energy game versus the Wildkits. LF got on the board inside the first two minutes when a great ball put Peter Passolino in on goal. The ETHS keeper made a great save, but Michael Shipp was in the right place at the right time to knock in the rebound. Early in the second half, high Evanston pressure earned the 'Kits an equalizer. The Scouts responded and created numerous chances, and finally took the lead when Passalino neatly headed in a Kevin Grube free kick. Grube added a third in the last two minutes with a superb free kick. Sam Audley (2 saves) & Devin Gregory (4 saves) split the goalkeeping duties.

This afternoon's "BUG AWARD" for endless energy against Evanston goes to Peter Passalino.

9/14/11
Lake Forest 1 – Zion-Benton 0
The Scouts moved to 6-2-0 and 2-0 in the NSC Lake Division with a victory over the host Zee-Bees.  LF had more possessions and outshot Z-B, but struggled to find the net in the first half.  GK Sam Audley was equal to the task at the other end of the pitch--including one spectacular save in the final minute before halftime. The breakthrough came midway through the 2nd half when Peter Passalino passed to John Moderwell, whose dipping, long-range shot found the far corner.  Again the tough Scouts’ defense held strong through a late Zee-Bee barrage of attacks.  GK Sam Audley made 4 saves as the Scouts recorded their 4th shutout in the last 5 games.

Tonight’s "BUG AWARD" winner for buzzing all around the Zee-Bees goes to Sam Audley.

9/12/11
Lake Forest 1 – Mundelein 0
The Scouts got their NSC Lake division play off to a good start with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Mundelein.  Time and space was hard to come by for both teams, and it always looked like the match would be decided by one goal.  The winner came when Peter Passolino was judged to have been fouled in the box, and Ian Forlow buried the resulting penalty kick.  LF had the edge in shots for the remainder of the game, but could not stretch it’s lead.  Despite a couple of nervous moments in the final minutes, David Hayes, Karl Morcott and the Scouts’ defense held firm and helped Sam Audley record his 1st shutout of the season after making 8 saves.  The team’s 3rd shutout in the last 4 games moves its record to 5-2-0.

Tonight’s "BUG AWARD" winner for masterfully outmuscling the Mustangs is presented to David Hayes.

9/10/11
Lake Forest 2 – Glenbrook North 0

The Scouts entertained the Spartans in a soccer Triple Header on Saturday.  The Freshman and Sophomore Games both ended in even 1-1 ties.  The varsity game was another evenly contested game with LF coming out on top.  Lake Forest had the better of the opening 20 minutes, and took the lead when hard work from Riley Scholer paid off, and he fed Michael Shipp at the top of the box to slot in his 1st goal of the season.  GBN came back into the game, and numerous chances that just missed the far post.  The Scouts regained their composure in the 2nd half, and after a corner was only partially cleared, Kevin Goon was first to the loose ball to volley in a laser beam from the edge of the box.  The LF defense, led by Kevin Grube and Goon, was able to thwart the Spartan attack for the rest of the game and allow Devin Gregory (4 saves) to pick up his 2nd shutout of the season.  The Scouts 3rd win in a row moves their record to 4-2-0.

The winner of "THE BUG AWARD" for being especially exasperating to the Spartans is Kevin Grube.

9/1/2011
Lake Forest 3 – Niles North 1
The Scouts played another complete game in their victory over the visiting Vikings.  From the opening kick-off LF controlled the ball.  The first goal came when Ian Forlow sent a long-range rocket into the top corner.  It was not much later that Forlow intercepted a clearance and scored with an almost identical shot!  A first-half last-minute goal could have given Niles North the momentum, but the Scouts started the second half well and soon added a third.  A swift counter attack forced a corner, where Peter Passolino powered home a header from Michael Shipp's delivery.  The Scouts defensive effort was led by Kevin Grube and Kevin Goon and backstopped by GK Sam Audley’s 8 saves.

“THE BUG AWARD” is presented to Ian Forlow, whose shooting was violently vexing to the Vikings!

8/29/11
Lake Forest (2-2-0) 3 – Lane Tech (Chicago) 0
The Scouts got back to winning ways with a fine 3-0 victory at the historic Lane Tech Stadium.  The visitors had the better of the play in the opening half, but it took a great pass from Ian Forlow and a clever finish from John Moderwell to break the deadlock.  In the second half, Lane Tech pushed players forward to find an equalizer.  The game-changing moment came when Karl Morcott  acrobatically headed a shot off the line.  Soon after Kevin Goon hammered home a Michael Shipp corner kick to make it 2-0.  Niko Svigos completed the scoring when he applied a sublime finish from a tight angle from a John Moderwell. GK Devin Gregory made 4 saves for his 3rd career shutout.

“THE BUG AWARD” is presented to the player whose effort was particularly pesky or amazingly annoying to the opposition, and tonight’s winner is Karl Morcott.

Waukegan 5 – Lake Forest (1-2-0) 2
Poor finishing hurt the Scouts as Waukegan pulled away from a tiring Lake Forest team.  The Bulldogs scored the only goal of an even 1st half.  However, Waukegan came out quickly to start the 2nd half and two early goals put them in the driver's seat.  The Bulldogs scored two more before Lake Forest tallied two goals late through John Moderwell and Robert Schyns.  The Scouts took 6th place in the tournament and Junior Adam La Vitola was named to the All-Tournament Team.

8/25/11
Lake Forest (1-1-0) 3 – St. Patrick’s 1
The Scouts got their 1st victory of the season by defeating St. Pat’s in a good game. Lake Forest got on the board in the 1st half when Peter Passolino scored his first goal of the season from a Riley Scholer assist.  Passolino returned the favor by setting Scholer up for his first goal.  The Scouts added a third early in the second half when Kevin Goon played a through ball for Alex Wesolowski to apply a neat finish.  St. Pat’s added a late consolation goal to ruin GK Devin Gregory’s shutout bid.

10/19/2010 IHSA REGIONAL SEMI-FINAL @ Highland Park HS

Lake Forest 0 – Highland Park 2
The Scouts and Giants faced each other in a rematch of the 2nd game of the season.  The game was tied 0-0 until 3 minutes left in the first half, when Highland Park scored on a counter attack.  Lake Forest put on a tremendous amount of pressure in the 2nd half, but was unable to score to get back in the game.  The Giants added an insurance goal late in the 2nd half.  The Scouts finish their season with a record of 9-9-2.

10/14/2010
Lake Forest 2 – Lake Forest Academy 3

In a classic back and forth game, the Caxy’s finished triumphant in the local derby.  LFA got on the board early after high pressure had caused a Scout turnover.  The game remained scoreless until midway into the second half when the Scouts’ Kevin Goon was judged to have been fouled in the box, and Ian Forlow stepped up to score the penalty.  The Academy responded immediately with a counter-attack goal to make the score 2-1.  Lake Forest replied with some intense pressure that resulted in former Caxy Cam Offer dribbling the ball up the left wing for Ian Forlow to score a beautiful dipping, swerving, long-range shot.  Just when the huge crowd though it was over, LFA scored the winner in the dying seconds and the fading twilight.

10/09/2010
Lake Forest 4 – Evanston 0
The Scouts (9-7-2) won their 3rd game in succession with a neat and tidy victory over the Wildkits.  Lake Forest got on the scoreboard early when James Shockey was judged to have been fouled in the penalty area, and Ian Forlow stepped up to score the resulting spot kick.  Soon after, the Scouts made it 2-0 when Forlow sent a diagonal cross to the far post that Kevin Grube cleverly lifted over the keeper.  In the second half, Lake Forest extended its lead, when after a free kick was bobbled around the box, Alex Wettermann knocked the ball down to Kevin Goon to place it in the bottom right corner.  The final goal was exquisitely scored by Danny Roper after a well-placed through ball from John Moderwell.

The Scouts’ final regular season game will be at LAKE FOREST ACADEMY this Thursday, October 14, at 4:30 pm.

Lake Forest 4 - Lakes 0

The Scouts had a great evening to honor their seniors of the Class of 2011.  The Eagles provided stern resistance in the first half and had more shots on target than Lake Forest.  In the second half the Scouts were able to move the ball much quicker and find gaps in the Lakes’ defense.  The first goal came when Michael Shipp found the overlapping freshman, John Moderwell, whose low cross eluded everyone and crept in at the far post for his first varsity goal.  Moderwell returned the favor and crossed to Michael Shipp to fire in his 4th goal of the season--making the score 2-0.  Senior Michael Svigos scored his first varsity goal when he was perfectly placed at the back post to finish off Dexter Offer’s cross.  The scoring was finished off by Ian Forlow’s inch-perfect shot after fine work by senior Danny Roper on the right wing.  GK Sam Audley made 5 saves for the team’s 4th shutout of the season. THANK YOU TO THE LFHS POM PON SQUAD FOR PERFORMING AT HALF-TIME!

Lake Forest 2 - Libertyville 1

The Scouts (7-7-2) got back to winning ways with an upset over the highly-ranked Wildcats. Libertyville had most of the possession in the first half, outshooting the Scouts 8-1. The Wildcats took the lead with a header in the 47th minute. Just four minutes later Lake Forest was level, though, after a counter attack saw Cameron Offer feed Alex Wettermann on the right side of the box, and he finished back to the far post. The Scouts took the lead when a long free kick from James Shockey eluded all the players in a crowded penalty box and bounced high into the net. The Lake Forest defense of Connor Medzigian, Drew Swisher, Dexter Offer, Kevin Goon, and GK Sam Audley (9 saves) were able to hold off a late Libertyville barrage to earn the victory.

10/02/2010
Glenbrook South 2 – Lake Forest 1
The Scouts dropped a heartbreaker to the visiting Titans.  GBS took the lead on their very first shot, when a wind-aided free kick was misjudged by the Lake Forest defense.  The Scouts controlled the play for the rest of the game and equalized when Cameron Offer was taken down in the penalty box.  Ian Forlow dispatched the penalty kick for his 4th goal of the season.  The game looked set for a tie until a Titan winger beat the offsides trap to score on a breakaway with 3 minutes remaining.

09/30/201
Warren 3 – Lake Forest 2
The Blue Devils took advantage of the their opportunities in the game, first on a penalty kick, and then on a corner kick.  An early 2nd half goal made the score 3-0.  The Scouts (6-6-2) fought back with a goal from Adam La Vitola assisted by Cameron Offer.  A second goal came when Alex Wettermann flicked a pass through to Cameron Offer to finish a breakaway.  Lake Forest had a couple of chances to equalize, but the Warren defense held on.

09/28/2010
Zion-Benton 4 – Lake Forest 3

On a dry and bumpy pitch, the Zee-Bees raced out to a 3-0 halftime lead.  After an early Zion goal in the 2nd half, the Scouts (6-5-2) doubled their efforts in the final 15 minutes, and got right back into the game.  Kevin Goon scored on a header from an Ian Forlow corner kick.  Cameron Offer scored after a feed from his brother Dexter for the second goal.  Danny Roper ripped in the third goal, after an assist from Adam La Vitola.  Despite tremendous pressure in the final seconds, Lake Forest couldn’t quite complete the comeback.

09/25/2010
New Trier 2 – Lake Forest 1

In a well-played game between arch rivals, the Trevians came out on top by a single goal.
New Trier got on the scoreboard late in the first with a quick counter-attack goal after extended Scout attacking pressure.  The Trevians added to their lead when their forward scored on a rebound after LF keeper Sam Audley made a great breakaway save.  The Scouts fought back into the game when Adam La Vitola scored after a cross was flicked on by both Cameron Offer and Danny Roper.  Unfortunately, despite having tremendous pressure on the Trevian goal for the remainder of the game, the Scouts were unable to find the equalizer.

09/23/2010
Antioch 3 – Lake Forest 2

The Scouts (6-3-2) were forced to play against the wind, and despite controlling the ball for most of the first half were down 1-0 at halftime.  The Sequoits capitalized on a LF turnover early in the 2nd half to take a 2-0 lead.  The Scouts battled back into the game.  First getting a goal from an Alex Wettermann header from a Cameron Offer cross, and then tying the game up after Danny Roper put in the rebound after Offer’s header was saved by the Antioch keeper.  Unfortunately, the Sequoits scored a counter-attack goal against the run of play to win the game.

The Scouts improved their record to 6-1-2 and 1-1 in the Lake Division with a victory at the Patriots home field.  Lake Forest started well; however, Stevenson took the lead with a nice header on a corner kick.  The Scouts responded well and equalized after some nifty Cameron Offer footwork allowed Michael Shipp to turn and blast in a right-footed rocket from outside the penalty area.  After half-time, Lake Forest took the lead after a surging run by Offer put him in the box, and he was able to slot the ball across goal for Alex Wettermann to prod in at the back post.  The Patriots equalized the score with fifteen minutes remaining, but the Scouts responded by pressuring a Stevenson defender into fouling Offer just outside the penalty area.  Ian Forlow stepped up and ripped the direct free kick into the far corner.  Lake Forest clung onto the lead in the final seconds and were grateful when one Patriot shot caromed off the underside of the crossbar and into the hands of goalkeeper Sam Audley.

09/11/10
Glenbrook North 2 - Lake Forest 2
After missing the first half because he was taking the ACT, senior Cameron Offer inspired a two-goal comeback by scoring the first, his 7th of the season, assisted by sophomore, Kevin Goon. And then assisting on the equalizer; sophomore Adam La Vitola's first career varsity goal. Lake Forest goes to 5-1-2.



09/07/10
Mundelein 3 – Lake Forest 2
The Scouts (5-1-1) took an early lead when Cameron Offer scored his 6th goal of the season from a feed from Ian Forlow.  Unfortunately, Mundelein equalized just before halftime, which gave them momentum, and they went on to score two more after the break.  Alex Wettermann scored midway through the second half from Offer's assist, but the Scouts could not get the third goal to tie the game.

09/04/2010
Lake Forest 0 – Loyola Academy 0

Despite having the greater amount of possession, the Scouts were unable to dent the net versus the Ramblers.  Lake Forest almost won the game in the final minute when a goalmouth scramble saw two chances for Danny Roper and one by Michael Shipp saved on the goal line.  Loyola was dangerous on the counter attack all game, but the defense--anchored by Kevin Goon, Galen Herron, Kevin Grube, and Ian Forlow--helped keep Lake Forest’s 2nd consecutive shutout.

09/02/10
Lake Forest 1- Niles North 0

At times, it seemed that the Scouts and Vikings could have played all night without finding the net. Niles North had a couple of chances, but GK Devin Gregory was up to the task--including one spectacular tip over the crossbar.  Lake Forest had plenty of possessions and action in the in the penalty area, but the Viking defense stood tall.  The Scouts eventually made the breakthrough after a corner kick scramble forced a save by the NN Keeper.  The rebound fell to Dexter Offer, but before he could score, a Viking punched the ball off the goal line.  Captain Alex Wettermann stepped up to bury the ensuing penalty kick with 1:33 remaining in the contest to improve the LF record to 5-0-0.

Next up are the Loyola Ramblers on Saturday 9/4, at 10:00 AM, on the Corner Field #5,

08/31/10
Lake Forest 6 – Lane Tech 1

Despite conceding an early goal, the Scouts extended their record to 4-0-0.  Kevin Grube scored the equalizing goal with 10 minutes remaining in the first half after a goal-mouth scramble.  Cameron Offer was then able to score two quick goals before halftime.  The first was an exquisite first-time volley from a great Ian Forlow cross.  The second, his fifth of the season, came from a quick pass from Michael Shipp.  Lake Forest continued to roll in the second half when Niko Svigos’ pace allowed him to center for Michael Shipp’s second goal of the season.  Danny Roper added the fifth goal when Domenic La Vitola’s shot was saved, and then Adam La Vitola tapped it for Roper to finish his second goal of the season.  The final goal was a gorgeous, long range, strike from Ian Forlow that went in off both posts before settling in the back of the net.

Next up for the Scouts is a trip to Niles North to take on the Vikings, 9/2/10 at 7:00 pm.

11/3/09--Super Sectionals
Lake Forest 1 - New Trier 2



The Scouts (19-4-1) battled hard against the defending IHSA State Champion Trevians.  Despite conceding two first half goals, Lake Forest pummeled the New Trier goal in the second half, scoring on a Cam Offer finish from a Jimmy Sykora assist.  The Scouts had a few late chances, including a Cole Smith effort that hit the post, but couldn’t get the equalizer they needed.  Though the loss was a tough way to end the year, it does not take away from  a history- making season.
The Scouts tied the school record of 19 victories, and won their first Sectional title since 1976.
