Rebels grounded


Mount Vernon (26-14) ended Dickey’s night when the first three batters reached, although the Mustangs added just one run as Tevin Stoecker came in and retired three straight batters. He faced just six more batters over the next two innings before a three-run sixth brought the early end to the game on the 10-run rule, a sacrifice fly by Conner Welch scoring the 10th run and sending the Mustangs to Des Moines to face Roland-Story in the quarterfinals.

The Rebels bowed out with a 24-9 record.

“It was a heck of a year,” said Howe, a former standout for the Rebels who took over as coach this season. “It was a lot of fun to be a part of and a lot of fun for my first year back. I couldn’t ask to be with a better group of boys. They played hard. They did everything that me and coach (Ryan) Jordan asked for all year long.

“I feel that when the year started a lot of people didn’t really know what to think about Northeast because they lost a lot from last year’s team — a lot — and it’s all a credit to them and how hard they played and how hard they worked. I told them you’ve got to keep your head up and be proud.”


Northeast 000 000 — 0 3 1

Mount Vernon 151 003 — 10 11 0

Game ended with 2 outs in 6th inning (10-run rule)

Jared Henfrey (1 1/3 ip, 2 h, 4 r, 4 er, 2 bb, 0 so, 1 wp), Cole Dickey (2/3 ip, 6 h, 3 r, 2 er, 0 bb, 0 so), Tevin Stoecker (3 ip, 3 h, 3 r, 3 er, 1 bb, 2 so), Ryan Livesay (2/3 ip, 0 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 1 so) and Zach Scott. Multiple hits — Northeast (Charlie Marcucci 2); Mount Vernon (Jacob Pisarik 2, CJ Eldred 2, Luke Hansen 2, Noah Dahlstrom 2). 2B — Mount Vernon (Trey Ryan, Conner Welch). RBIs — Mount Vernon (Marquis Dew 2, Dahlstrom 2, Trey Ryan, Eldred, Pisarik, Welch).
