After a disappointing loss to Dakota last week and NUIC front-runners Fulton and Lena-Winslow still ahead, Forreston had something to prove Friday night at home against Galena. It didn’t take long for Forreston to take control, jumping out to a five-score lead in a 46-14 win.

After what coach Keynon Janicke termed “the worst start you could ever have,” Forreston suffered a 36-26 loss to Durand-Pecatonica in NUIC football action Friday night at home.
