The MCC Rebels wrapped up the regular season last week with three tough games playing at Mountain Lake against a Wolverine team with just three losses this season. MCC then played host to the TMB Panthers and the Southwest Minnesota Christian Eagles on Friday. The Rebels had a two-game winning streak coming into the week but with the tough schedule ahead it wasn’t likely to last. The Rebels did some nice things over the course of the week but MCC struggled to get wins.
Game one of the week the Rebels played on the road against Mountain Lake Area Comfrey. The Wolverines had just three losses on the season coming into the game against the Rebels and all three came against state-ranked teams. The Rebels were blown out by the Wolverines in Slayton earlier this year but on Monday the Rebels were able to hang around but they were not able to threaten MLAC. The Rebels trailed by 12 at the half as Jordan Toll led the Wolverines with 12. Braydon Ahlers played well in the first half for the Rebels leading the team with 6 points. In the second half Blake Schmitz took over scoring 12 points but no other Rebel scored more than 4 points. The Wolverines, on the other hand, had five different players score four or more points as they would pull away for a 61 to 43 win. With the turnovers being even and the rebounding being relatively close between the two teams the difference was shooting and MLAC was much more consistent and they walked away with the 18 points win.
