The Marion Local football team is headed back to the state championship game for the sixth straight season after drubbing Patrick Henry 36-7 in a Division 6 state semifinal game at Lima on Friday night.

The Flyers leaned on the dynamic playmaking of Nate Moeller, who rushed for 215 yards and had 100 yards receiving as the Flyers went over 500 yards of total offense.

Marion Local will now play unbeaten Cuyahoga Heights on Friday morning at 10 a.m. at Ohio Stadium, with the Division 6 title on the line.
