The Monticello Sages rebounded from their first regular-season loss in nearly two years with a 51-19 win over Champaign St. Thomas More and will take their 2-1 record on the road for an Illini Prairie Conference tilt with Rantoul.
The Sages took a while to get going last Friday night before a couple of big second-half plays allowed them to create some separation. Head Coach Cully Welter continues to remind fans this is a young team that is still growing.
Moving to 2-1 overall, Coach Welter felt they got better in areas they needed to and reminded the players after the game, nothing is going to come easy.
Rantoul is 0-3 overall and is coming off a 27-7 loss to Olympia last Friday night.
Game time is 7 pm and all the action can be heard on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
