Daily Herald report

Stevenson 28, Zion-Benton 14: The visiting Patriots survived a scare, overcoming a 7-0 halftime deficit to beat the Zee-Bees and secure a share of the North Suburban Conference Lake Division championship with Lake Zurich.

Willie Bourbon's 9-yard touchdown pass to Matt Morrissey on the first series of the second half finally got Stevenson (7-2, 5-1) on the scoreboard.

On Zion-Benton's next possession, a bad snap on a punt attempt set the Patriots up with good field position. Bourbon then threw a 17-yard TD pass to Alan Velev. Zion-Benton (2-7, 1-5) answered to tie the score at 14-14 late in the third quarter.

But Anthony Bozin's 14-yard touchdown run gave Stevenson the lead for good.

Bourbon ran into the end zone from 7 yards out to complete the scoring.
