HS FBall: Monticello Looks For Signature Win Tonight

The Monticello Sages face a stiff test tonight when they host Bloomington Central Catholic in an Illini Prairie Conference matchup.


The Sages have rolled to two straight wins but the Saints will pose a very good test. After an easy 56-14 win last week over Confluence Prep Academy on Saturday, Coach Cully Welter was pleased his team didn't look past their opponent last week in anticipation of this week's game.



For the Saints, the offense goes through 6-foot-6, 240 pound senior quarterback Colin Hayes. Coach Welter says BCC shows a lot of heavy sets and so the focus this week in practice has been its alignment.



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