Constantine mauled Brandywine 58-8 in Friday’s pre-district playoff football game in Niles. Based on the result, you would never know that the Bobcats were both unbeaten and the home team, as the Falcons obliterated them with a 44-8 lead by halftime.
Ty Dumm had a monster game on the ground, rushing for 221 yards and two touchdowns on only 12 carries. Brayden Clark and Hunter Bacheller each added two rushing touchdowns with Bacheller also throwing a TD pass to Trey Salisbury. Constantine held the Bobcats to -22 rushing yards and outgained them 447-149 total on the night.
