The Farmers took control from the opening tip and got a 60-28 win over the Titans to improve to (22-3) overall on the season. The Titans were led in scoring by Nick Kelley with eight points. Monmouth-Roseville is now (13-10) on the year. The Farmers put 10 players in the scoring column led by Jacob Uryasz with 11 points. Farmington’s JV team also got a win over Monmouth-Roseville 59-44.
