The score may have shown Forreston dominating West Carroll 48-6 in Friday night's Sept. 13 game, however the score did not tell the tale of the game.

Both teams had trouble maintaining control of ball in a game where the defenses held strong despite giving up yardage.

In the first quarter it looked like Forreston was going to march into the end zone but fumbled at the goal line and West Carroll recovered.

West Carroll was able to drive down the field and lost the ball on a called fumble that may have been a forward pass the officials did not see.

Forreston teammates looked like they had an easy interception but got tangled up and the pass fell for an incomplete pass.

There were other dropped passes, and balls being knocked loose from the runners but were called down by contact.

Forreston as a team overcame the few miscues and scored early and added on as the game went on.

Robert Devries scored on a 4-yard run with 5:40 left in the first and the extra point was good.

Spencer Cruthis added a touchdown on a 3-yard run with 3:32 left in the first and the extra point was no good.

In the second quarter Max Barkalow scored with 9:18 left on a 68-yard run. The extra point was good.

Devries had a 7-yard pass to Logan Bagley with 6:21 left in the half.

A third score was added on a 14-yard run by Kaleb Reining with 3:20 left in the half.

Devries ran for 45 yards for the score with 10:44 left in the third.

Aaron Shelton had a 51-yard run for a touchdown with 2:36 left in the game.

West Carroll scored in the fourth quarter on a 42-yard run.

Leading rushers for the Cardinals were Cruthis with 162 yards on 12 plays, Devries with 102 yards on 6 plays and Barkalow with 86 yards on 3 plays.
