Only four players scored for the Monticello Lady Sages but their defensive pressure was strong enough to keep Champaign St. Thomas More from getting close Monday night, as the Lady Sages rolled to  32-16 win in Class 2A Regional quarterfinal girls basketball action from Unity High School.


With the game tied at 6-apiece after a sloppy first quarter by both teams, the Lady Sages outscored STM 13-4 to open up at 19-10 lead at the break and held the Lady Sabres to six points total in the second half.


Cloe Clark, playing with a heavily taped sprained right ankle, led all scorers with 12 points. Emily Edmundson added ten points and Renni Fultz had eight points.


The Lady Sages move on to a Regional semi-final game Tuesday night at 6 pm. Hear the action on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
