CALUMET TWP. | Lake Station picked up its first win of the season against Calumet, after running back Mylano Quinones scored three touchdowns and amassed 246 yards of total offense.

Quinones ran for 166 yards on 11 carries, including a 67-yard touchdown sprint down the sideline. He also caught an 81-yard touchdown pass with less than a minute left in the second quarter, giving Lake Station a lead it would not relinquish.

Eagles running back Kyle Gooch also had a big night, running for 150 yards on 29 carries against Lake Station's Greater South Shore Conference rival. He also snagged a one-handed red zone pick that he nearly ran back for a touchdown, and scored a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. Gooch pounded the ball up the middle for much of the second half, wearing down Calumet's defense and chewing up the clock.

Lake Station coach Rich Lunsford credited that interception with turning the tide of the game, since the Warriors had been leading 14-7 and were poised to score again.

The Eagles (1-4, 1-2) played an aggressive, high-risk style of play, going for it on every fourth down and kicking onside on every kickoff. They did not recover a single one of their onside kicks, and turned the ball over on downs three times, including on a fourth and 16 on their own 14-yard line late in the fourth quarter.

Lake Station gave up a fumble on fourth down on their own 25-yard line on its first possession.

Calumet (2-3, 1-2) failed to take advantage of the favorable field position. Warriors quarterback Kyle Hubbard nearly hit receiver Aaron Wallace in the end zone but the deep pass was broken up.

Lake Station got on the scoreboard first, after Quinones broke free from tackles, got to the outside and dashed 67 yards for a touchdown.

The Eagles followed with an onside kick that gave Calumet good field position on their own 44-yard line. The Warriors again did not capitalize, going three-and-out.

A deep punt pinned the Eagles at their 7-yard line. Their drive stalled, and Calumet got the ball back on downs.

Hubbard hurled a 16-yard pass to the end zone that was broken up, but wide receiver Kurt Davia was in the right place at the right time when he athletically caught the tip. He had a pair of touchdown receptions.

In the second quarter, Hubbard danced away from what appeared to be a certain sack and scrambled for a 16-yard gain, down to Lake Central's 4-yard line. Running back Kyle Fowler punched in for a rushing touchdown.

Fowler then picked the ball off at the Lake Station 15 in the second quarter. Calumet drove down into the red zone, but Gooch answered with his own leaping, one-handed interception, running the ball back more than 70 yards to the Calumet 15 before he was finally tripped up.

Quinones sped into the end zone for his second touchdown with 1:19 left in the half.

Lake Station quickly forced a punt. With seconds left in the second quarter, quarterback Robert Fazekas hurled a Hail Mary to a wide-open Quinones for a 81-yard go-ahead touchdown.

In the fourth quarter, Calumet drove down to Lake Station's 9-yard line, but lost the ball on a fumble with little more than 7 minutes left on the clock. The Warriors, however, got the ball back after Calumet failed to convert on fourth and 16 on their own 14-yard line.

Hubbard connected with a diving Davia for a 20-yard touchdown, narrowing Lake Station's lead to 28-20 with 5:11 left.

But the Eagles fell on an onside kick, and ran out the clock after running the ball down to the 15-yard line.
