Patriots stifle Scouts’ run game to clinch playoff berth.
Stevenson 20, Lake Forest 6
The Patriots (6-2, 5-0 NSC Lake) continue their climb back after an 0-2 start with a convincing win over Lake Forest (6-2, 3-2) Stevenson has now won six in a row. Friday night, the offense did just enough in scoring three touchdowns, but it was the Patriots’ suffocating defense that allowed only two Scouts field goals.
After a Lake Forest field goal made it 7-3 with 4:53 remaining in the first quarter, Stevenson went on its longest drive of the night. An 80-yard, 11-play drive over 5:31 was capped by a 15-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Willie Bourbon (21-of-35 passing, 325 yards and three touchdowns) to senior wide receiver Matt Morrissey.
