The MCC Rebels football team had a chance for the first time in four years to play their second game in a single week. That only happens once per year if you make it from the quarterfinals of your section to the semi finals. Games this year were held on Tuesday and on Saturday of the same week. The Rebels had the added distinction of playing on three days in a single week because of the quarterfinal game was split between two days.

The Rebels traveled on Saturday to Lamberton to take on the Red Rock Central Falcons, a team that was coming off a blow out win over Sleepy Eye on Tuesday night. The Falcon players and coaches got a chance to see the Rebels second half against TMB in person. I am not sure that turned into a good thing for the Falcons. RRC was the #2 seed in Section 3A and had the best record in the section at 6-2. None of that mattered on Saturday however as the Rebels went out and dominated.

This game started as one expected a playoff game to start with both teams struggling on their first drive as they worked out the butterflies in their stomachs and the nervous energy. The action really began on the Falcons second drive of the game. The drive ended in three plays as the Rebels shutdown the running game of Sam Hansen and the Falcons.

Garrett Marsh the Red Rock Central quarterback and punter was called to punt on a fourth down and eight from his own 26 yard line. Marsh caught a bit of a high snap but his punt was off the side of his foot and was hooked out of bounds at the 32 yard line covering just six yards.
