Rebel's 8th Grade Boys BB gets Win over the Spartans!
Thurs, Dec. 16th the young Rebels found themselves facing a more difficult opponent than we have played in the past. The Spartans were undefeated going into this contest with several talented players, plus with them only having 7 roster players we had our work cut out for us. We started the game with two goals win & continue to see good playing minutes for all. We new we would have to play well at all times to accomplish this team goal. We pretty much did that, as our starters played solid and our bench players showed much improvement in this game. The final score was 53-27 as the Rebels improve to 4-0 overall. Our leading scorers were Luke Holman 14 pts. & Zach Pierce 13 pts. followed by Camden Kickbush 6 pts., Brady Kuehl 4 pts., Bennett Petersen 4 pts., Phil Zimmerman 4 pts., Bradon Trepp 4 pts., Noah Orht 2 pts., & Logan Flamme 2 pts., and other players contributing in other ways were Brady Wagner, Austin Bell & Bryce Ehlers. This made for a fun Rebel night. Our future schedule is Monday Dec. 20th at GMG (Garwin site), Jan 7th home vs. West Marshall.
