CHAMPAIGN -- Monticello outlasted Byron 24-20 in a super physical 3A title game, clinching its first ever state football championship.

The win was extra sweet for the Sages, getting payback against a Byron team that knocked them out of the playoffs last season.

Alek Bundy led the way with three touchdowns, and a game saving interception late in the fourth quarter.
