Constantine’s home debut was spoiled by a solid Berrien Springs team, as the Shamrocks edged the Falcons 26-21 for week two. Constantine took a 14-7 lead into halftime and entered the fourth quarter ahead 21-14. Berrien Springs finally went ahead on a 75-yard fumble return touchdown with four minutes left in the fourth quarter.
The Falcons outgained the Shamrocks 412-244, but they were doomed by turnovers as Constantine had four giveaways and Berrien Springs stayed clean. Isaac Hall was the top gainer with 149 yards on the ground for the Falcons.
Constantine holds a 1-1 record heading into next week’s trip to Comstock. Berrien Springs starts at 2-0 and hosts Kalamazoo United for their week three at St. Joseph High School.
