MONTROSE – Lake Fenton played the spoiler for Montrose’s Homecoming Friday night, posting a 41-6 victory over the Rams.

“It was just one of those games,” Montrose coach Dennis Reinhart said after the game. “We had three early turnovers and they capitalized on them and it snowballed from there. Things got out of hand quickly.”

The Blue Devils got their first score at 6:31 of the first quarter on a four-yard run. The twopoint conversion failed.

On the ensuing possession, the Rams fumbled the ball, and Lake Fenton scored on a sevenyard run at 4:27 of the first quarter.

Again on their next possession, Montrose fumbled the ball, and the Blue Devils capitalized, scoring on an 11-yard run at 11:25 of the second quarter. The two-point conversion failed.

At 8:05 of the second, the Devils struck again, this time on a 21-yard run. The conversion failed.

Still in the second, the Blue Devils scored at 3:47 on a 43- yard run. This time, the twopoint pass was good.

With seven seconds left in the half, Lake Fenton scored again on a 12-yard pass. The PAT pass was good. The Blue Devils put the game away with 27 points in the second quarter.

Montrose finally got on the board at 8:48 of the fourth quarter on a 40-yard pass from Anthony Emmendorfer to Jon Nogaj. The PAT failed.

Montrose finished up with 98 yards rushing and 97 yards on 6 of 20 passing for 195 yards of total offense.

With the loss, the Rams drop to 1-5 in the Genesee Area Conference Red Division, 3-5 overall. They travel to New Lothrop this Friday to renew their neighborhood rivalry. Game time is 7 p.m.
