The Rhinelander Post 7 Rebels opened their Great Northern Legion Conference season on the road against Tomahawk at Kahle Field Friday night. The Rebels would cruise to a convincing 19-0 victory. Ace Jacob DeMeyer had a no-hitter for the first five innings and recorded eight strikeouts in the win.

Rhinelander would rally for 19 hits on the night, all singles against the Cubs. The Rebels quickly raced out to a 5-0 advantage after the first two innings and would never look back. Rhinelander would plate another five runs in the fourth frame and finished strong and rallied for nine runs in the fifth inning.

It was a complete team effort for the Rebels who only had nine players on their roster on the night, but they pulled through. Martin Hoger and Abe Laggis led the offense and both went 4-for-4 at the plate. All nine players would finish the night with at least one hit and one RBI in the victory.

Josh Randolph, Laggis, and DeMeyer would start the bats going early and had three straight singles to start the game. Laggis and DeMeyer each drove in runs in the second.

While in the fourth, Hoger started the run and connected on a two-RBI single with the bases loaded. Bryce Schickert scored on a dropped fly ball to center. Teagan Guckenberg had an RBI single and Danny Zuiker drove in another run on a ground out to give the Rebels a 10-0 lead.

In the fifth and final inning, Rhinelander sent 15 batters to the plate and cashed in on nine runs on seven hits. The Rebels had six straight plate appearances and all earned RBI's.

Jacob DeMeyer was only one out away from earning the no-hitter when Tomahawk collected back-to-back infield hits from Nick Kahle and Shawn Dirkx. DeMeyer finished the game after getting Matt Bartz to pop out. DeMeyer earned the shutout win and only allowed two hits with eight strike outs and three walks.

The Rhinelander Rebels are now 1-0 in the Great Northern Legion Conference standings and are 2-0 overall. They will be back in action when they travel to Eagle River to face Northwoods on Wednesday evening.
