Lobo Field at 7:30 p.m. Rebel Cup: Rebs finish last Continued from pg. 1 B against the Cedar Creek Eagles Thursday morning The Rebels were able to keep Cedar Creek offthe scoreboard for most of the game. But the Eagles were able to put up two goals en route to a 2-0 shutout in the Rebels' first game of pool play. Hays followed by facing off against Marble Falls on Friday. Marble Falls Mustangs finished the tournament in second, and showed their prow- ess in their pool play game against Hays. The Mustangs took 25 shots, 14 of those on-goal. Hays worked to keep the ball out of the net, but they were unable to limit the Mustangs from finding the goal. Marble Falls' Juan Ro- driguez kicked in his first of three goals in the game roughly minutes into the contest. The goal came after two saves and several deflections. Marble Falls dominated possession and moved the ball with ease on offense. After Marble Falls went up 4-0, the Rebels were able to steal a late goal in the last minute of the game. Hays' final game of the tournament, was against Pflugerviile Connally Friday evening. It was the Rebels' sec- ond game of the day, and Connally found a way to score with ease. Connally went on a scoring exhibition, win- ning the game with a final score of 5-0. The shutout marked the second of the tournament for the Rebels. While Hays lost all three games of the Rebel Cup, the Rebel defense at times was a bright spot. There were also times where the Rebels coun- tered on good offensive runs, despite not finding the back of the net. Lady Rebel Basketball: Lady Rebs punish gays Continued from pg. 1B ....
