Monticello Squares Off Against Bloomington Central Catholic in Critical Illini Prairie Matchup

It's among one of the bigger games on the schedule for the Monticello Sages tonight when they travel to Bloomington to take on Central Catholic in Illini Prairie Conference high school football.


Monticello came away with a grinding, if not surprising, 39-6 win over Milwaukee Academy of Science last Friday night. As the Sages get back to the Illini Prairie slate, Coach Cully Welter isn't hiding it from his team - this is a big game on their schedule.



Central Catholic is a proud program that has fallen on hard times in recent memory but this is a team that boasts a lot of size and athleticism. Coach Welter says the Saints will be gunning for them after a couple of close losses the last few times out.



Game time tonight is 7 pm. Hear all the action on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
