The Strom Thurmond Varsity Rebel Boys played Batesburg-Leesville Panthers on Tuesday, December 8th at STHS. The Rebels had a slow start in the first quarter ending it down by 3. Coming into the second quarter the Rebels seemed to be in a zone, holding the Panthers to only 4 points. The half ended with the Rebels up by 10. Coming out of the locker room, the Panthers were on a mission to fight back but still were down by 8 at the end of the third. Coming into the fourth quarter, the Panthers seemed to find their momentum while the Rebels appeared to have lost theirs. It would be a fight to the finish but the Rebels managed to hang on and won the game by 1.

T. J. West – 4; Dalton Hitt – 9; Daniel Mims – 6; Quan Edmond – 4; Dallas Hitt – 4; Allan Williams – 4; Jalen Hammond – 11; Danricques Tolbert – 5; Jake Roberson – 2
