The Lady Rebels took to the ice to take on the Dragons of Litchfield on Saturday, November 23.

The Rebels struck first as Grace Hartl found room to slide the puck past the Dragons' goal keeper with the assist coming from Raechel Painovich at the 16:38 mark. A few minutes later, Sandra Ribich slid the puck through the pipes with the assist coming from Hartl at the 8:12 mark on the clock.

Julia Jusczak took the position of goal keeper for the Rebels and fended off 10 attempts by the Dragons to score in the first period. The Rebels took a 2-0 lead going into the second period. It was 10 minutes into the second period before the Dragons finally scored as Sophia Hillman slid the puck past Jusczak to bring the Dragons to within 1 goal of the Rebels. The Rebels struggled to score in the second period. Although they would move the puck nicely, the Dragons would slide in and steal the puck away before the Rebels could shoot. The Rebels would only get 6 shots on goal in the second period.

Going into the third period the Rebels led 2-1, but soon the Dragons would find the net again off the stick of Alyssa Olson with the assist coming from Emily Johnson at the 15:01 mark. The Rebels and Dragons pounded it out on the ice moving the puck well but not scoring. At the 1:04 mark on the clock, Dragons' Grace Walsh found the net with the assist coming from Kristin Foley, giving the Dragons the lead. The Rebels would not give up though as they would pull their goalie to get a sixth skater out on the ice but the clock ran down before the Rebels could find the net.

The Dragons took the 3-2 victory over the Rebels. Jusczak had 26 saves on the night.
