Blake Lewis added two goals and an assist while Ryan Marston scored a goal and added a pair of helpers. Ben Allen, Austin Collins and Patrick Brumback each had assists.

The team was in action Monday at the Kentucky School for the Deaf. They then hosted Anderson County Tuesday. The Rebels will play at Mason County Thursday night.

The junior varsity girls were in action Tuesday night at Boone County. The Lady Rebels got goals in the second half from Alexis Ellis and seventh-grader Dree Dalton. The Ellis goal came off a corner kick from Katie Haines.

The Lady Rebels varsity team then lost a 2-0 decision to Grant County Wednesday night.
