The Monticello Sages will play their first home game since winning the 2018 Class 3A state finals last November.

 

Champaign St. Thomas More comes to town as Monticello is reeling from a 40-14 loss at IVC last Friday night. Head Coach Cully Welter says after playing two tough teams to start the season, they are focused on the fundamentals as they look to get back over .500.

 

 

Monticello is rarely the bigger team in any matchup and that will be the case tonight. Coach Welter says St. Thomas More balances a big line with good athleticism.
