On the final game of the season, the Rebels hosted the Adrian Area Dragons in Slayton for a conference matchup. The Rebels started their scoring early and defensively stopped the Dragons from scoring as the Rebels finished the season with the win, 9-0.
After a scoreless top of the first inning, the Rebels got right to work in the bottom half of that inning. Brooklyne Miller singled to left to start the inning and moved to second when Camryn Boerboom singled to left as well. Miller and Boerboom both stole the bases ahead of them, and then scored when Montana Beckmann dropped a single into center field. Back to back walks with one out loaded the bases up and after a strikeout gave MCC their second out, Laney Brown came through with a sharp single to left, plating two more runs for the Rebels.
With the 4-0 lead, the Rebels defensively shut down the Dragons in the second and third innings before the Rebels added to their lead in the bottom of the third. Muecke led off with a double that inning before Katlyn Knakmuhs moved her to third on an error in the field. Knakmuhs stood on second during that play, which set up a two run RBI single from Courtney Schmitz when she singled to left field.
