WEEK FOUR - GCMS COMES BACK AND STUNS FLANAGAN-CORNELL-WOODLAND  by Tom Benefiel (9-20-14)

The old baseball sage, Lawrence "Yogi" Berra said, "It ain't over until it's over." Late in the 4th quarter, the GCMS Falcons showed why it's important to hang tough and stick around as they came back from a 4th quarter eight-point deficit to score 14 unanswered points on the way to a Heart of Illiinois Conference victory over the visiting Falcons of Flanagan-Cornell-Woodland. The final was 26-20.

Nick Meunier's 72-yard punt return with 5:10 left in the game lifted the homestanding Falcons (2-2, 2-1) to their first lead since the second quarter.

With seven minutes left, Menuier had an electric 88-yard touchdown run, and with the two point conversion, GCMS had tied FCW.

Austin Allen made a 21-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Hinshaw in the second quarter.

Flanagan-Cornell-Woodland (2-2, 1-2) was led with a super night from Austin Dutko who rushed for 251 yards on 36 carries and all three FCW touchdowns on runs of 70, 3 and 19 yards.

The Falcon Fan of the Game is Andy Bleich, and the football trivia winner is Greg Kerber.
