NEW CHICAGO | Lake Station took advantage of big plays against River Forest on Friday night to hand the Ingots a 26-14 loss.

With the game tied at 8-8 near the end of the second quarter, Lake Station quarterback Kody Lemley connected with JD Bastin for a 38-yard touchdown to put the Eagles up 14-8.

River Forest answered back in the third quarter. After an eight-play, 60-yard drive, John Flores ran for a five-yard touchdown to tie the game at 14-14.

The Eagles (1-2) scored with 1:37 left in the third quarter on a one-yard touchdown run from Kyle Gooch. Gooch had 157 yards rushing on 26 attempts and two touchdowns.

River Forest quarterback Justin Pennington was hurt on the Ingots' next drive, and he would not return for the rest of the game. Backup quarterback Justin Warren came into relieve Pennington, but on the next play the Ingots fumbled and Lake Station recovered on their own 38-yard line.

The Ingots had three fumbles during the game.

Lake Station put together a 13-play drive that took up almost six minutes and Gooch ran in from one yard out to score his second touchdown of the game. The Eagles failed a two-point conversion, putting the score at 26-14.

River Forest had a chance to score late in the fourth quarter, but a pass was ruled incomplete in the end zone, and on fourth and eight quarterback Brandon Laas was sacked to turn the ball over to the Eagles.

Lake Station quarterback Kody Lemley threw for 85 yards, two touchdowns, one interception and 50 yards rushing. Bastin had 67 yards receiving to lead the Eagles.

Malachi Sala was the leading rusher for the Ingots with 57 yards. John Flores scored both touchdowns for River Forest and had 26 yards rushing.
