Joey Sprinkle accounted for all six Monticello scores and the Sages blanked Pontiac in the second half to roll the Indians 42-12 in Illini Prairie Conference high school football action Friday night from Homecoming at Pontiac High School.


Sprinkle ran in from 2-yards out three times in the first half, scored from five-yards out to start the second half, another two-yard score in the third quarter and hit Triston Foran from a yard out in the back of the end zone for the final score.


The Indians stayed around thanks to a 35-yard pass from junior quarterback Nick Crane to Wyatt Griffith and then hit Kodi Davis for a 57-yard touchdown in the second quarter that made the score 21-12 at the half.


Sprinkle finished 17-for-31 for 256 yards and a score. He also ran for 62 yards and five touchdowns. Foran hauled in nine more catches for 152 yards and a touchdown. Spencer Mitze (mitts) broke out for five catches and 89 yards.
