Constantine High School’s varsity football team is returning to Ford Field for the second consecutive year in search of a Division 6 state title.
The Falcons ran the table Saturday, topping Monroe St. Mary’s Catholic Central, 36-14, at Harper Creek High School. The 11-2 Falcons never trailed and relied on 245 rushing yards from sophomore Justin Hull to hold off St. Mary’s, which ends its season with a 10-3 mark.
Saturday’s contest marked the third time in four years the two teams have met in the state playoffs.
Constantine will play Ithaca at 4:30 p.m. Friday for a rematch of last year’s Division 6 championship game. The Yellowjackets are the two-time defending state champ and have won 41 consecutive games.
