Montini extracts revenge against Marian Central, advances to Class 5A semifinals
The final score looked almost identical, but it was Montini on top this time when it took on Marian Central for the second time this season.
Montini, which lost to Marian 49-24 in Week 7, turned the tables in their rematch Saturday in Woodstock, beating the Hurricanes 42-27 in their Class 5A quarterfinal to continue their bid for a fourth consecutive state title.
The Broncos (10-2) hit the road again next week to take on familiar playoff foe Joliet Catholic (8-4), which defeated Lincoln-Way West 21-20 in overtime. Montini's current state title three-peat includes wins over Joliet Catholic in both the 2009 and 2011 championship games.
