GREENFIELD — Late in the fourth quarter of its game against Greenfield Friday night, the Monument Mountain football team faced a daunting task; a 99-yard field. With time ticking on the game and the season, the Spartans set for themselves a simple goal as the offense took the field.
“I said to the guys, ‘You know what, let’s get down there and score a touchdown. That’s our goal for today,’” coach Dennis Martin said. “They wanted it. They showed me that they’re going to play hard right up until the end.”

While the touchdown did not do much to change the outcome of the 30-14 win for the Greenfield Green Wave over the Spartans, it did show their coach what the team was made of.
“It was a tremendous effort by a young team,” Martin said. “I’m really proud of them.”
