Monticello flys past Olympia 51-0

First Friday night lights was yesterday and many of the high school teams had great starts, Monticello being one of those teams. The Monticello Sages played against the Olympia Spartans in their first season game.
The 1st quarter started off slow for both teams as Monticello and Olympia would throw for a couple of incompletions. Monticello's Asher Bradd would pick off Spartan's quarterback Jackson Castleman return it for a touchdown. A helmet to helmet contact would be called on Monticello bringing the touchdown back. Monticello would then put the first points up on the board with a pass from Bryan Snyder to Bradd, for 22 yards, giving the Sages an early 7-0 lead.
Later on, Spartans would have the ball and lose it as Sage's defense would strip it away from Castleman and returning it all the way back for a touchdown making the score 13-0.
Spartans would struggle to find any momentum but tailback Matthew Cooksey would get some first downs. After reaching about the 30-yard line Cooksey would lose the football on a fumble to Sage's defensive lineman Riley Austin. Sage's would get another touchdown from a pump fake go to Bradd increasing the score even more 27-0. Before the half Sage's would score another touchdown increasing the lead even more to 34-0.
After the half Coach Cully Welter would start switching players in and out to give younger players some experience at the varsity level. Luke Rudolph would help tack on some points for a field goal from 26-yards out in the mid-third making the score 37-0. Nic Tackels and Henry Dawson came in at the third quarter as Tackels would look 30 yards deep on a post route to Dawson for a one-handed grab.
Monticello would end up rushing for over 110 plus yards and score another touchdown to get the final score 51-0.
Players of the Game: Asher Bradd, Nic Tackels, and Henry Dawson
