LISLE – Lisle didn't need its starting quarterback to dismantle Westmont on Friday.

Lions senior quarterback Griffin Huba suffered an injury during a week six loss to Wilmington and was unable to suit up for Lisle's rivalry bout against Westmont; so, the team relied on its running backs and defense to secure a 28-0 victory.

With the help of four interceptions from the defensive corps, running backs Cliff Krause and Kevin Coppin scored all 28 points for the Lions.

Krause's 24-yard touchdown run opened the scoring after the Lions defense picked off quarterback Tim Doll on the Sentinels third play from scrimmage. Later in the first quarter, Krause tallied a 65-yard run then finished the drive with a touchdown plunge from the one yard line.

In the third quarter, Krause added 70-yard touchdown reception from Alec VanVolkenburg – who started in place of the injured Huba. Coppin's two-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter increased Lisle's lead to 28-0.

The victory moves Lisle to 4-3 overall and 3-2 in the Interstate 8 Small Conference; Westmont drops to 1-6 and 1-4 in conference.

Next, Westmont will play Coal City and Lisle will face Peotone.
