Ram Highlights Not Enough

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — The Shelbyville Rams had some highlight plays on Senior Night, complete with a 56 yard pass on the first play from scrimmage and a punt return for a touchdown as the game ended. In-between Monticello scored 38 unanswered points and won 38-6.

Shelby burst out of the gate as Dylan Patch came out of the back field and Lucas Duckett hit him with a pass along the sideline. He caught it at the Monticello 30 and ran it to the 14. The Ram drive died in the red zone and Monty took on downs.

On the Sages first play from scrimmage, the big play bit the Rams again. The off tackle runner was almost untouched for 80 yards and a score. The 2-pt. run put Shelby behind with less than 2:00 gone in the game.

Shelby continued to move the ball after taking the kickoff. Another pass to Patch picked up a 1st down, then a pass to Luke McConnell moved the chains. A pass to Finley picked up yardage, but a fumble was recovered by teammate Caleb Cloe at the Monty 28.

Ram senior snapper Elliott Smithson was then injured on a run play and had to leave the game. A bad snap led to 4th and 10 and the resulting pass was incomplete. Monty took over on downs again.

The Sages moved the ball to the Shelby 41. They picked up another 1st down at the 29. Another off tackle play went for a 29-yard score with 3:32 remaining in the 1st, 14-0.

The Rams picked up a 1st down on their next possessionon a Tice Robinson run. Once again, the drive stalled and Wyatt Fox had to punt. His towerin kick went 42 yards and put Monty at their own 15.

The Shelby defense held them to 3 and out and forced a punt that Devin peterson almost blocked. A short kick gave Shelby the ball at the Monty 45.
