Matthew Guedon iced the game in the third quarter with a three-yard touchdown run to give ACCS a 21-6 lead. The Rebels then held on for the win.

&8220;We made so many mental mistakes it was pitiful,&8221; said head coach Bobby Marks. &8220;But the kids played real hard. We spoiled their homecoming. It was good to get a win. We needed one. We&8217;ve got a district game coming up next week and this was the best thing that could have happened to us.&8221;

The Rebels rushed 53 times for 385 yards on the day and had 29 first downs.

They will face Riverfield next Friday on the road at 7 p.m.
