The game was struggle all night as WWG boys could not fund a tempo to match the intensity of the MCC team. They were out rebounded and they allowed too many turnovers to be competitive. However, the boys continued to work through the 'entire game and they never gave up. Leading scorer was Mitchell with 6, followed by Tyler with 4 and finally Brody and Tristan each add- ing a bucket.

The first half started with smothering defense. Lead by Andrew Merrick, Taylor Lindaman, and John Elzenga. The Rebels were limited to 10 points while the Chargers put up 20. At half time, the boys were reminded of this intensity and Matt Otto, Alex Knutson, Brody Williams, Reed Bakken, and Shane Buchman came out and bet- tered the first half with a blazing 23-10 run. The entire team played the fast paced, aggressive style that will be their trademark for years to come. They were an exciting team and gave the fans all a great year.
