Lady Rebels Hockey hosted the Rockets of Rochester on January 10. The Rebels secured the win 6-2.

The Rebels took control of the puck early as they put together 21 shots on goal. The Rockets only managed to put 3 shots against Rebels' goalie Jo Wekseth in the first period. The game would remain scoreless, however, through the first period. It wasn't until half way through the second period that the Rockets found the net for the first score of the night. The Rockets' Ashley Koecher had an unassisted goal over the shoulder of Jo Wekseth to get the Rockets on the board at 8:05 in the second period. Less than a minute later, the Rockets' Koecher again found the net assisted by Greta Freed and Josie Nichols at 7:31 to put the Rockets up 2-0.

Late in the second period the Rebels got their chance to get on the board as Savannah Gamst scored with the assists coming from Raechel Painovich and Jamie Benzie at 0:58. Jamie Benzie got her chance to score at the 0:43 of the second period with the assist coming from Painovich. Painovich, however, would not be left out as she would score the third point in less than a minute for the Rebels, with the assists coming from Jamie Benzie and Sandra Ribich at 0:01.7 in the second period.

In the third period, the Rebels continued to pressure the Rockets and soon Jamie Benzie once again put the puck between the pipes to score, with the assist coming from Sandra Ribich at 12:22. Savannah Gamst landed her second score of the night at 9:41 of the third period with the assist coming from Jamie Benzie. The Rebels rounded out the scoring for the night with the hat trick coming from Jamie Benzie at 7:25 with the assist going to Raechel Painovich. Rebels' Jo Wekseth stopped 21 shots on goal while her counterpart from the Rockets was a force to be reckoned with, stopping 52 shots from the Rebels.
