North Tama The Rebels didn’t have much time to rest as the next afternoon we traveled to North Tama to take on the Class 1A 10th ranked Redhawks. This was a hard fought physical ballgame (just ask or look at Erin’s eye), that the Rebels were able to win by the score of 72-69. I thought the girls responded well and showed get character after the tough loss the night before. On the down side in this game senior Paige Thompson went down with a knee injury. We hope to get Paige back, but until then the Rebels, just like they did when Emily Stoakes went down with an injury, will have to make adjustments and really pull together!! Paige led all scorers with 20 points, Emily Snider finished with 19, with three big 3 pointers in the fourth quarter. Addi Kickbush finished with 9, Emily Dinsdale 9, Jenna Roeding 5, Brittany Shinn 4, Erin Wentzien 3, Rachel Bown 2 (clutch free throws late in the fourth quarter), and Taylor Flamme 1. The Rebels did a much better job on the boards as they pulled down 16 offensive rebounds and 17 defensive rebounds in this game. Brittany Shinn pulled down 6 rebounds, Paige Thompson 5, Emily Dinsdale 4, Jenna Roeding 4, Britney Keller 4, Rachel Bown 3, Addi Kickbush 3, Taylor Flamme 1, Erin Wentzien 1, and Emily Snider 1. Jenna Roeding did a nice job on the back end of our press as she came up with 5 steals. The Rebels met two system goals by turning the Redhawks over 42 (30) times and getting up 35 (35) 3’s. We were just short of our shots up goal as we finished with 78 (80).
