Montrose senior Caleb Reinhart scored a touchdown with under three minutes left in the third quarter, capping 26 unanswered poins en route to a 33-28 win over Millington in comeback fashion.
Ithaca was there to see every bit of the 21-point comeback.
Yellowjackets head coach Terry Hessbrook said he was very impressed with the job the Rams did to rally for the district title. He believes his team must get off to a fast start in Friday's Division Six regional final.
"We'll have to get off to a good start in that game and try to get that momentum that they;ve got going stopped right away," Hessbrook said. "That's going to be a concern."
Montrose and Ithaca will meet for a third straight year in th4e postseason. Kickoff is at 7:00 from Ithaca on November 9.
