The Rebels took the opening kick-off and went 80 yards in 9 plays culminating in a Chase Johnston 11 yard TD run to take an early 7 - 0 lead. After stopping Arcola on their first possession, Arcola would intercept QB John Groter's pass on 3rd down which Chase Strader would return 15 yards for a pick-6 TD. The EP kick was block. Rebels up 7 - 6 with 56 seconds left in the 1st quarter. Arcola would take the lead for good at the 8:49 mark of the 2nd quarter when QB Clayton Strader scored from 13 yards out. The 2 point conversion was good 14 - 7 Purple Riders. Arcola would score again on a Strader to Kollin Seaman pass play covering 27 yards. Arcola up 21 - 7 with 4:41 left before half. The Rebels would get a Class 1A Championship game record FG of 33 yards by Karl Wallander as the half ended. Rebels trail 21 - 10. The Purple Riders would get the only score of the 3rd quarter to lead 28 - 7 after three. After Arcola scored again in the 4th quarter, the Rebels would get a Lucas Wisnefski to Logan Knobloch TD pass from 6 yards out to make the final Arcola 34 Rebels 17.
