PREP FOOTBALL ROUNDUP
SCHOOLCRAFT — Schoolcraft’s No. 2-ranked football team didn’t choke this time.

Clark, a three-year starter, completed 11-of-15 passes for 119 yards and four TDs to spark Schoolcraft to a 40-28 win over Constantine at Roy Davis Field Friday.
The Eagles, now 10-0, advance to face Jackson Lumen Christi in next week’s district finals.
Constantine, which finishes 6-4, was led in rushing by its senior halfback duo of Anthony Ruth and Anthony Evilsizor.
Ruth gained 108 yards on 19 carries and Evilsizor added 101 yards on 23 touches. Hunter Lindbert tacked on 44 yards in nine attempts.
Evilsizor led Constantine defensively with eight tackles.
Evilsizor scored twice on runs of five yards and added a four-yard TD dash for the Falcons.
