Two topped ranked teams in Illinois High School football did not let the thousands in attendance down Friday night. The Maroa-Forsyth Trojans were just too much for the Monticello Sages to handle as they won a close 21-7 ball game in Maroa. Sophomore quarterback Jack Hockaday ran for 99 yards and three scores. He also went 11 of 18 for 114 yards with two interceptions. The Trojans defense held star runningback Ryan Donahue in check all night, as all Donahue could muster was 26 yards on 14 carries. The lone Sages touchdown came late in the first half as quarterback Parker Trice carried it in from two yards out.
The Sages drop to 3-1 on the season. Maroa-Forsyth improves to 3-1. The Sages start Okaw Valley Black play next week as they play host to the Clinton Maroons. Join us for a special simulcast broadcast with WEZC's sister staion, WHOW, next Friday.
