FORRESTON, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF) — The Forreston Cardinals remained undefeated Saturday afternoon by edging Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley 22-21. GCMS came into the game with a 5-1 record, one of the better small-school teams located east of Bloomington-Normal.
The Falcons led the Cardinals most of the game including by a 15-6 score and again by a 21-14 score in the fourth quarter, but the Cardinals responded with a one-yard touchdown with just over four minutes remaining, and then they converted a must-have two-point attempt giving them the victory.
