Turnovers and incomplete passes plagued the Patriots early, as No. 2 Lake Zurich capitalized and took a commanding 17-0 lead in the first quarter.
Hinsdale South failed to find their way into the end zone in the first half. The second half wouldn't be much better, as they managed to score only seven points.
Hinsdale Central took a 14-7 lead into halftime. Downers Grove would win the second half, outscoring their opponent 10-7, but that wasn't quite enough to complete the comeback.
