The Lake Forest High School football team put its undefeated record on the line Sept. 26 as it traveled to Mount Pleasant High School in Wilmington for a Saturday morning game. The Spartans were unable to protect a lead and fell to their opponents, 35-27.


After surrendering three leads, the Lake Forest High School football team was handed its first loss of the season, 35-27, by Mount Pleasant High School Sept. 26.

The back-and-forth contest saw six lead changes as Mount Pleasant (2-1, 1-0) came out on top over the Spartans (2-0, 1-0).

Lake quarterback opened the scoring by rushing for a touchdown to give his squad a 7-0 league after the PAT, but the Green Knights struck back less than two minutes later on a 57-yard TD run to bring the score to 7-6.

Webb then threw his first of three interceptions of the day with 4:30 remaining in the first half that was returned for 102 yards and a touchdown.

The Spartans struck right back with scores by David Frasier and Quadir Bryant to end the half with a 19-14 lead.

Mount ran back the opening kickoff in the second half, but the Spartans' Bryant rushed for his second TD of the day on the next drive, reclaiming the lead for his team at 27-21.

Two more scores from the Green Knights, as well as two interception tosses by Webb in the fourth quarter, wrapped the game up with Lake on the losing end.

The Spartans return to action next week when they travel to play Laurel High School at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2.
