A trip to Memorial Stadium in Champaign is up for grabs Saturday when the Monticello Sages play host to Elmhurst IC Catholic in Monticello.
The Sages used another route to defeat Farmington Saturday 48-17, now they welcome undefeated IC Catholic to Monticello. Head coach of the Sages, Cully Welter, says his defense stepped up on a day when the offense wasn't as efficient as usual.
A loaded IC Catholic squad comes to town Saturday afternoon headlined by a runningback with a commitment to Northern Illinois. Coach Welter says while he gains a lot of the attention, their quarterback is a good player as well.
Both teams are undefeated.
Hear all the action at 3 pm Saturday on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
The winner takes on the winner of Saturday's game between Carlinville and Virden North Mac next Friday in Champaign for the state title.
