High school roundup: Montgomery's big night helps Chaffee to 41-39 win vs. Jefferson
Charlie Montgomery capped an incredible night with an interception that clinched Chaffee's 41-39 victory over host Jefferson on Friday night.
The junior, who has been slowed by injuries most of the season, scored four touchdowns and picked off two passes for the Red Devils.
"He kept getting better and better," said Chaffee coach Charlie Vickery, who hit the milestone of 200 career victories. "Tonight he was full strength -- or pretty close to it."
Chaffee (3-5) led 41-33 late in the game when Jefferson scored its final touchdown and went for two to tie. The Red Devils stopped the Blue Jays and recovered an onside kick, but their offense stalled.
Jefferson started its final drive on its 17-yard line and drove past midfield before Montgomery's interception with under a minute to play ended the threat.
Montgomery finished with 120 yards rushing on 20 attempts and caught six passes for 81 yards.
All but one of those passes were thrown by his brother, sophomore Peyton Montgomery, who was 13 for 19 for 200 yards. He also rushed 10 times for 70 yards.
Jimmy Golden threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Charlie Montgomery to open the Red Devils' scoring in the first quarter. He caught a 16-yard pass from Peyton Montgomery later in the quarter.
Chaffee scored three times in the second quarter and took a 33-27 lead into halftime.
Charlie Montgomery ran in from 7 yards out for the first score. Then Layton Tenkhoff connected with Peyton Montgomery on touchdown passes of 82 and 30 yards.
Both teams went scoreless in the third quarter before Charlie Montgomery scored on a 25-yard run to cap the Red Devils' scoring in the fourth.
Tenkhoff finished with three catches for 114 yards.
