JV Lions Earn Hard Fought Victory On Road
The Lisle JV football team (5-3) got a well deserved win Friday night in Manteno defeating the Panthers 12-7. Lisle took a 6-0 lead with 50 seconds left in the first half on a 20-yard pass play from sophomore quarterback Andy Eckard to running back Dylan Laue. The Lions gave it right back when the Panthers returned the kickoff for a touchdown and the lead going into half 7-6. The Lions got redemption late in the third quarter on a 14-yard pass play from Eckard to sophomore tight end Anthony Raineri. The stout Lion defense held the rest of the way and Lisle escaped with the win. Laue led the way for Lisle on both sides of the field. On defense he had 8 tackles and a sack. On offense he had 10 carries for 45 hard fought yards and 4 receptions for 68 yards and a score. Eckard finished the night 7 for 12, 111 yards, and 2 TDs. Very impressive considering Andy was back in action for the first time in 4 weeks. Lisle will look to conclude the season on a high note as they return home to face the Streator Bulldogs next Friday night.
