Walking into the PCCC to a standing ovation, the Railers passed by a throng of Railer fans. It was just the beginning of the showing of Railer love by the fans who made the trip down Interstate 55 and from all over, even as far as Utah. Probably no one imagined the next 32 minutes would feature 12 lead changes and six ties in a game that was not decided until the final shot from Cahokia missed the mark.

óLDN sports writer Jeff Benjamin

Tuesday was quite a night for the Railers as they took on the Cahokia Comanches at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield for their supersectional. The Railers put another notch on their scoreboard, but it was a very hard-fought win and one that will not soon be forgotten. Friday afternoon the team will head to Peoria for the state semifinal.
