For the third straight year the Monticello Sages entered the Class 3A High School football playoffs under Coach Cullen Welter. The Sages travelled to St. Joseph-Ogden to take on the Spartans and won the game with a final score of 42-14. A well-played game all around for the Sages led to their victory. Ryan Donohue led the way for the Sages as he picked up 235 yards on 22 carries for 3 touchdowns and Jacob Williams had 10 carries for 173 yards. The Sages will head back home next week to take on the Tolono-Unity Rockets in round two of the 2011 Class 3A playoffs.
That game will be heard live from Monticello High School on 95.9FM WEZC. (Time and day, to be determined)
