The Monticello Sages offense did not miss a beat in filling big spots in their offense in a week one 42-0 rout of Olympia last week in Stanford.
The Sages will look to keep the momentum going tonight when they hit the road again, this time the northern suburbs of Peoria, when they take on Illinois Valley Central in Chillicothe.
Junior quarterback Brayden Snyder threw two touchdowns, one each to Asher Bradd and Dylan Thomas, while finishing with 193 yards. 
Senior tailback Lucas Lieb finished with 28 yards on the ground but scored twice.
Bradd also had two picks and senior linebacker Nathan Harman added a pick-six.
The Grey Ghosts were at Tolono Unity last Friday night, suffering a 41-8 loss. 
The Sages, who play three of their first four games on the road in 2017, play their second road game in a row tonight.
