After a first half where neither offense could get any traction, the Polo Marcos finally found some after halftime. A long run by Avery Grenoble set up one Polo touchdown, then two long pass plays set up the second before the Marcos got one final stop to win their second straight Illinois 8-Man Football Association state championship with a 12-7 victory over Orangeville on Friday night at April Zorn Memorial Stadium in Monmouth.



The undefeated Polo Marcos will play for their second consecutive Illinois 8-Man Football Association state championship at 7 p.m. Friday against former NUIC foe Orangeville (11-1) at Monmouth College at 7 p.m.
