JV Rebel football

The Rebels were looking to ring in the month of October with a bang. We were hosting the Redhawks from North Tama on Monday October 5. We had been playing much improved and better football as of late so we all were hoping this would continue on this awesome autumn evening.

We kicked off to start the game and the Redhawks put together a nice drive and were methodically moving the ball down the field. Once NT reached our 30 yard line then things got tough. We tightened and denied the Redhawks on a fourth down try so we took over on downs. We then put together a great drive of our own and Kaleb Hendricks reached pay dirt from a yard out for our first score. Jackson Kiburis hit Matt Johannsen for the PAT conversion and we led 8-0. The second quarter we dominated the line of scrimmage and took care of business as we added another Kaleb TD run and a Matt to Caden Kickbush 35 yard scoring strike out of our reverse pass play. We led 24-0 at the half. We received the second half kickoff and 4 plays later Kaleb exploded for another touchdown covering 50 yards. We added the PAT run and had a comfortable 32-0 lead after 3 quarters. After an NT turnover Kaleb struck again to make the final score 38-0 moving our record to 3-3 with 2 games left. The offensive line did a nice job as we had 25 rushes for 293 and completed 5 of 6 passes for 68 yards. We were pretty solid all the way around except for a fumble and more penalties than we would like. This group has shown steady improvement and that is all you can ask for.

Kaleb had another huge night on the ground with 15 carries for 249 yards and 4 touchdowns. Colton Clark had 5 rushes for 15 yards and 2 PAT runs. Gage Murty 1 for 12, Matt 1 for 8, Jackson 1 for 4, Cael Wyatt 1 for 3, and Seth Gretillat 1 for 2 yards for our rushing totals. Jackson finished 4 of 5 for 33 yards and Matt went 1 for 1 for 35 yards for our passing yardage. Caden hauled in 2 balls for 42 yards and a score. Cael catch 1 for 13, Matt 1 for 12, and Lane Bowman added a catch for 3 yards. Defensively we had Lane, Bronson Wrage, and Bryce Schick lead the way with 5 stops apiece. They were followed closely by Kaleb, Colton, and Matt with 4. Gage and Slade Wager 3, Cael, Tyler Sparks, William Blakesley, D'Mico Rodriguez, Kyle Koppen, and Rhett Barnes all had 2 tackles each for our defense. Matt also added an interception.

Our next action will be Monday October 12 we will play host to the Cougars from AGWSR at 6 pm. Our finale will be on Monday October 19 at 6 pm at Grundy Center against the Spartans. See you on the sidelines previewing the future of G-R Rebel football.
