The Rebel girls were looking for their best win of the season on Thursday night. MCC has failed to beat a team with a winning record even though they have had some good games and close calls. They were hoping to get a signature win heading into seedlings which were pushed back to Friday because of the blizzard on Wednesday. They played host to the Adrian Ellsworth Dragons in the Rebels final home game of the season. With very little riding on the game, the Rebels were looking for a chance to go into the playoffs with some momentum on their side. The Rebels B-squad picked up their first win of the year and the varsity team followed it up with their best performance of the season.
The MCC Rebels couldn’t have shot the ball any better than they did in the first half on Thursday night. In the first half, they made ten 10 of 13 three-point shots. Shelby Christensen connected on three, Morgan Clarke and Amber Boock hit on two each. Brianna Schmitz, Bryn Hoekman, and Sam Larson made one each. The ten three-point shots helped the Rebels on their way to a 47 point first half and a 20 point lead at halftime.
MCC struggled to slow down Bailey Lonneman who scored 10 first-half points all of them coming from the free-throw line and in towards the basket. The Rebels kept the rest of the Dragons in check with no one else on the team scoring over six points.
