Dragons stomp on the Rebels
The MCC Rebels were at home Friday night for the first of a three game home stand in the middle of the high school football season. The Rebels were trying to end their two game losing streak, but it wasn't going to be easy against the state ranked and undefeated Adrian Dragons. The Rebels played a tough, physical game, but the ending was very similar to the past regular season match-ups with the Dragons and that is another Adrian win.

In previous weeks, the MCC Rebels have gotten out to a fast start and held six to 12 point leads in the first half before losing the lead and the games. In this game, the Rebels didnít have the luxury of having a lead at any point in the contest. The Dragons got the ball first and they slowly marched down the field and relied on their power running game. The Dragonsí offense this year has not had a play longer than 28 yards, but they got close to breaking that in the first half. Jordan Dingman took a hand off and ran to his left, running over one Rebel on his way to the first touchdown of the game. The extra point was made by Jake Tiede and Adrian had the lead, 7-0 with over eight minutes to play in the first half.
