The third time was certainly the charm for the Ithaca Yellowjackets.
The football team marched on Ford Field and marched past Constantine for the Division 6 title.
But they didn't win it without a fight. Constantine scored first and held on to the lead for much of the first half.
Both sides walked into the locker room with 20 points each.
But the second half belonged to Ithaca.
Even without two of their top players - who they lost to injuries - the offense continued to put up points while the defense kept Constantine to just one more touchdown.
Final score: Ithaca 37, Constantine 27.
It's the 42nd win in a row for the Yellowjackets.
Ithaca becomes only the 5th team in Michigan high school history to win 3 titles or more in a row.
Fred Heumann will have the highlights and reaction from Detroit coming up tonight on the 5th Quarter.
