Down 18-15 with 25 seconds to go, the table was set for a Carroll Academy Rebels comeback at Immanuel Christian Friday night. However, the Rebels could not get a score and lost a heartbreaker in their first district matchup of the season.

The Rebels, playing in their first 2-A matchup of the season, saw some trickery from Immanuel in the opening kickoff with a lateral pass and began play inside Rebel territory. The Rams lead 6-0 early on and in the second quarter, scored again, but the PAT was blocked by Clark Sanders.

Carroll drove down to the Immanuel four yard line, but turned the ball over. Carroll would hold and would pick up 2 points when the Immanuel snapper snapped the ball over the punter's head.

The Rebels went into halftime trailing 12-2.

The offense came alive when Jake Streater took over the second half of the ball game.

A 51-yard scamper by Streater added points to the board, and the Rebs trailed 12-8 at the end of three.

In the final quarter, Streater scored on an eight-yard run, and after the extra point the Rebels took their first lead of the game, 15-12.

Immanuel, with little time left, managed to pick up multiple first downs and drove to the Rebels 41.

With 30 seconds to go in the game, the Rams hit with a dump pass from the 41-yard line and scored to regain the lead.

CA would get to the Immanuel 30 but several pass attempts were not successful.

Streater led the Rebels with 139 yards on 16 carries and two scores. Tristian Tackett had 31 yards on eight carries, and Sanders had 17 yards on the ground.

Through the air, Streater was 3 for 14 for 43 yards. His three passes went to Austin Brewer and Tyler Henson. Brewer had two catches for 28 yards, and Henson had one grab for 15.

Hunter McCorkle led the way for the Rebels with five tackles along with Tackett who had three solo tackles.

Jordan Bell, whose clutch field goal block kept the Rebel lead early in the fourth, added three tackles. The Rebels travel to Benton Friday night.
