Monticello suffers road loss to North Summit
Despite suffering a 54-20 loss to North Summit in Coalville Friday, October 1 the Monticello football team saw some flashes of success.
They moved the ball on offense in both halves of the game and scored three touchdowns in the second half.
But North Summit’s run game was dominant and the Braves built a 42-0 halftime lead. Monticello won the second half, scoring 20 points while the Braves added 12.
Unofficially, MHS sophomore quarterback JD McDonald threw for 235 yards and three touchdowns in the game.
He connected with Landon Ewart for 135 yards and a TD. Logan Draper had 80 yards receiving and a 25-yard touchdown catch.
Running back Cameron Bailey had one catch for a five-yard score. Seniors Michael Peterson and Tate Ramsey each had catches for about ten yards.
Javlin Robison led the running game with 35 yards. McDonald and Bailey each had seven yards rushing.
Monticello has homecoming this week, but they will not be playing their football game that was scheduled against Layton Christian.
The decision to cancel the game came due to multiple injuries and a limited roster. In order to reduce risk and create a more controlled environment, an intrasquad game will be played for homecoming this year.
All of the regularly-scheduled events during the homecoming game will still occur including the presentation of the homecoming court.
There is no entry fee for the game, but if you can’t make it you can watch the broadcast at pictureitpalmer.com.
