The Rebels traveled to Ackley to do battle with the 6th ranked team in class 2A. Going into the game we figured if we could score in the 60's we would have a great shot at a win. AGWSR however had other ideas and did a good job of defending our shooters on the perimeter. The combination of fewer shots and a poor shooting percentage doomed the Rebels and we fell by the score of 62-46. I think this is one of those games where you put the score sheet and the stat sheets in a bucket and burn them. It's over and we learn from it and move on!
Emily Dinsdale led the Rebels in scoring with 12, Jenna Roeding and Lauren Bengen finished with 7 each, Addi Kickbush 6, Emily Snider and Paige Thompson each scored 5, Emily Stoakes 2, and Taylor Flamme and Erin Wentzien each finished with 1. Emily Stoakes led all players in rebounding with 8, Jenna Roeding pulled down 5.
The Rebels have been on the road since December 10th. Tuesday the 18th we travel to Grundy Center and then on Friday we finally return home and play East Marshall, with NUHS coming in on Saturday night.
