"REBELS FALL TO MUSTANGS"
The first road trip of the season saw the Rebels traveling to Gilman on December 7, 2012 (Pearl Harbor Day) to take on the Mustangs of East Marshall. What we encountered was a very quick, good shooting and very talented team.
The Rebels opened the first half with the Mustangs forcing turnovers which led to easy baskets for the opponent and a 24-6 deficit for the Rebels.
Coming out for the second half the Rebels showed determination not to give up and keep fighting. This was a position we have not been in for a long time for both the players and coaches. But as in life was a learning situation. The game ended with a 40-13 loss for the Rebels.
*Gage Murty - 2 points, *Caden Kickbush - 7 points, *Matt Johannsen - 4
