Monticello Gets Back On Track

Monticello gets back on track

After two frustrating weeks, Monticello was due.

Monticello's Denzel Terry gave Monticello a jolt with a 73-yard kickoff return on the opening kick.

Things finally got off on the right foot for the Mustangs this week when Denzel Terry ripped off a 73-yard return on the opening kickoff. From there Monticello rolled to a 52-21 victory over Turner Ashby on the road.

The Monticello offense got back to the balance that first appeared possible during summer practices, using a 321-yard outing on the ground to help jumpstart the passing game. Jhalil Mosley put together a 139-yard, three-touchdown night that included an efficient 10-for-12 performance in completion percentage.

Mosley spread the ball well, finding five different receivers.

T.J. Tillery did much of the heavy lifting in the run game with 129 yards and three touchdowns on 21 touches. But he wasn’t alone as Tyler Wagner ran for 86 yards, Mosley had 55 on the ground and Edress Mirzai notched 45 yards on just four carries.

The Mustangs’ defense clamped down too, limiting Turner Ashby to just over 200 yards of total offense. The run defense was particularly stout, holding the opposition to just 4.3 yards per carry. Shane Brown’s 105 yards and two touchdowns was the bulk of the offense.

Alex McNair continued his emergence as a threat in the passing game with four catches for 54 yards and two touchdowns. Seth Miles also had a receiving touchdown while Josh Malm made a 30-yard field goal.

Monticello jumps back into Jefferson District play next week on the road against Fluvanna County.
