Ram Highlights Not Enough

(Continued)

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

A 21-yard pass got the Sages their third score in the period and a 32-0 lead at the break.

Monty went 3 and out to start the 3rd and Finley returned the punt to the Shelby 46. Duckett had to scramble again and a fumble was returned by Monticello at the Shelby 30.

The Ram defense held as Bart Kennell's rush forced an incomplete pass. Shelby took over on downs, however, on the first play they fumbled the ball away, again.

They covered the 32 yards on four plays capped by a 13-yard run with 5:15 left in the 3rd, 38-0.

Shelby moved the ball again on the next possession, using a hard count to get Monty offsides and a 1st down on 4th and 1. A 13 yard pass to McConnell moved the chains again into Monty territory.

A blitz stopped Shelby on a 4th down conversion try, giving Monty the ball. The Shelby defense held again as the game went into 4th.

Monty blitzed again and the Rams had to punt. The Ram defense held again on 4th and 4. Shelby got the ball back, but another sack forced a punt, a 42 yarder by Fox.

Monty subs fueled the offense and the Rams stymied them. They forced a fumble and McConnell recovered it at the Sage 25.

Monty's #1 defense came in got another sack and Shelby faced 4th and 23. The ball was dropped on a pass and Shelby still hadn't scored with 2:27 left in the game. The back-up Sages went 3 and out and had to punt with time still on the clock.

Finley took the punt at the Ram 30 and ran up the right along the Sage's sideline. He cut accross the field at the Monty 30 and picked up one block. He beat the pursuit to the end zone with no time remaining for the first kick return score of the year for Shelbyville.
