Montini gets third straight shutout win
Montini pounded St. Joseph 42-0 in a Chicago Catholic League crossover game on Friday in Elmhurst.
The Broncos scored 42 points in the opening 15 minutes, 27 seconds of the game. Quarterback Justin Blake and running back Prince Walker each scored 2 touchdowns and receiver Tyler Millikan scored 1.
The Broncos (6-0, 1-0) scored two touchdowns on defense and held the Chargers' offense to 27 yards on the ground and zero yards passing for the game. It was the third consecutive shutout for the Broncos, who have given up only one touchdown in their last four games.
"We can be much better," said Broncos defensive lineman Monte Bay. "We have a lot of work to do for (next week's game against) St. Francis. There's a lot of mental work. We got to stay focused, stay humble and stay attentive. And don't mess up."
The Broncos scored on the first possession of the game for the Chargers (1-5, 0-0). Thomas Hyland blocked a Leon Davis punt. Nicholas Foster picked up the loose ball at the 10-yard line and ran the ball in for the Broncos first touchdown to begin the onslaught.
"My teammate (Hyland) helped me out and blocked it. I just picked it up and scored," Foster said. "I believe it took the wind out of them. All week at practice we've been preparing for this team with no days off just hustling all week."
Blake followed with a 2-yard run, Jake Kapp intercepted a Chargers pass at the 20-yard line for a score and Walker picked up his second touchdown on a 2-yard run to give the Broncos a 28-0 lead after one quarter.
"I kind of knew a pass was coming so I dropped back in coverage. I just bent down and caught it and had an open view for the touchdown," Kapp said. "We been working hard all season. We have a lot of speed on our defense and can create a lot of turnovers."
Blake picked up his second touchdown on a 30-yard run, and Millikan grabbed a 24-yard rocket from quarterback Bradley Norgle, who replaced Blake, to give the Broncos a commanding 42-0 lead early in the second quarter.
"They're a great football program," said Chargers coach Anthony Griffin. "We competed. The guys didn't quit or drop their heads. We got to execute better. We can move the ball against teams like that, it just comes down to execution."
