On Monday September 28 the youthful Rebels made the long haul down on highway 30 to State Center to take on the Trojans from West Marshall. We always know when we go down there, we better be ready because we always seem to have a very competitive game with them. Another year against these guys and that is exactly what we got.

We jumped out early with three quick scores as we led 20-0 barely into the second quarter. Kaleb Hendricks reached pay dirt twice and Josh Peterson once as we stormed out to what seemed like a commanding lead. Things can change in a hurry and they did. West Marshall struck quickly and often in the second quarter to knot the score at 20 at the break. Matt Johannsen caught a 22 yard Jackson Kiburis pass for the go ahead score but the Trojans responded with a score of their own. We added another Kaleb TD run and Colton Clark also crossed the goal line in the fourth quarter to give us 42 points. WM added another score to pull within 42-35 but it was too late as we held on to the victory. This moves us to 2-3 on the year.

Kaleb had a huge night on the ground with a lot of the credit going out to his linemen. He toted it 26 times for 243 yards and 3 touchdowns. Josh added 31 yards and a TD and Colton's 5 yard TD run ended our rushing stats. This is a season high for us with 279 rushing yards. Jackson had another solid night offensively. He finished 13 of 16 for 158 yards and a score which both of these bettered his career highs from last week. Matt caught 6 balls for 96 yards and a score. Colton caught 3 balls for 25 yards, Cael Wyatt 2 for 19, Caden Kickbush 1 for 12, and Seth Gretillat 1 for 6 for our receiving totals.

Josh Peterson, Rhett Barnes, and Kaleb led the defense with 5 stops apiece. Kyle Koppen and Cael 4, Colton, Bryce Schick, Matt, and William Blakesley 3, Bronson Wrage, Lane Bowman, and Seth 2, D'Mico Rodriguez, Reece Gilbert, Caden, Tyler Beenken, and Tyson Creswell each had 1 tackle each to aid our cause. Bronson recovered a fumble and Cael picked off a Trojan pass for our turnovers. This is a good win for the Rebels to grow on. We need to continue to work hard and improve every week. We are over half done with this season. We need to build for the future.

Our next action will be Monday October 5 we will play host to the Redhawks from North Tama at 6 pm. then on Monday October 12 we will host the Cougars from AGWSR. Check out the future of G-R Rebel football.
