The Moose Lake/Willow River Rebels sixth-grade girls traveling basketball team played Sunday, April 10, in the Pacesetter Region 4 Tournament in Willow River.

In the first game the Rebels played a team from Menahga, which is about three hours west of Willow River. The Rebels started out with a quick lead and went on to a 26-15 win.

In the second game the Rebels faced Cloquet. Once again the Rebels came out strong and had as much as a 15 point lead. Cloquet never gave up and battled back in the second half, but the Rebels held on and won a nail biter 40-38 to get them in the championship game against Esko.

The Rebels could not seem to get it going in the championship game. Esko has always been a strong team and a great bunch to play against. The girls tried their best but ended up losing 27-8 for the second place finish.

The Rebels qualified for the Pacesetters MIT Tournament and by winning their first game also are able to attend the Pacesetter Open in Redwood Falls on June 5, consisting of up to 16 teams from Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota and North Dakota.
