After committing five errors Tuesday, Monticello took advantage of four more errors by Okaw Valley Conference rival Maroa-Forsyth Thursday en-route to an 11-5 victory from Monticello High School.
Ryne Bundy recorded three hits, Jacob Burton added a pair of hits as well to pace the Sages in their 11-hit attack Thursday and Austin Hopper went the distance allowing five runs on eight hits with five strikeouts as Monticello improves to 17-3 overall on the year, and 4-1 in conference action.
Hopper also had three RBIs offensively and Burton and Daniel Peterson contributed two apiece as Monticello swept the home-and-home series with the Trojans this week.
Monticello is off until next Tuesday, when they take on St. Thomas More in Champaign.
