Midfielder Ramon Marin had a goal and 2 assists for Lakes (10-4-3). Brian Werchek, Joey Savino and Thomas Cyberski also netted goals for the Eagles. Savino picked up an assist, as well.
"We're getting things back together and playing as well as we can," Marin said. "We're progressing very well with a few games to go (in the regular season). We're playing well as a team and developing chemistry. If we didn't have chemistry, we wouldn't be doing this well."
Marin has been a playmaker in the midfield. He has 8 goals and 10 assists.
"I just find my teammates out there," Marin said. "I'm just trying to get the team more involved."
Lakes rallied twice from a goal down to defeat Grayslake North (5-14).
"We played very well, but as we've done in many games, we did something that allowed the other team to score," Lakes coach Kevin Kullby said. "It seems that every game we fall behind. I'll say something at halftime and then you see what happens.
"It puts us behind and then we're chasing the game," Kullby added. "It was nice to see some good goals. We've got lots of talent and ability. It's just tricky to get all of this together."
Grayslake North took a 1-0 advantage in the 23rd minute. Sean Blashe scored off an assist from Baruk Perez-Vera.
Lakes tied the score in the 37th minute, with Werchek scoring off a Savino pass.
The Knights' Arnaud Laroche-Bataille converted a penalty kick for a 2-1 lead a couple of minutes into the second half.
But Lakes answered with a Marin penalty kick three minutes later, knotting the match at 2-2.
Savino scored the game-winning goal in the 48th minute off a through ball from Marin. Marin then assisted on the Eagles' insurance goal by Cyberski in the 68th minute.
"We played well in the first half," Grayslake North coach Adam DeCaluwe said. "We had good moments, and then the bad moments showed and we paid for them. Unfortunately, that's been the story of the season."
