Hermantown, Minn. - An epic collision between Hermantown and Moose Lake/Willow River helped kick off Minnesota's prep football season last year and the Rebels and Hawks are set to do so again this year and its tonight at 7:00 p.m.

"Exciting game, Hermantown was up by 20 points, then we started playing Rebel football and stopped making mistakes like we were early in the game and if ended up being a very close score and we were fortunate enough to pull it out in the end there," says ML/WR Head Coach Dave Louzek.

"We had a chance to score at the end too, to take that game last year and we didn't execute when we needed it and we expect just a good game with a good defensive battle," says Hermantown Head Coach Daryl Illikainen.

The Rebels won 24-20 in 2013. If playing for bragging rights wasn't enough, the Rebels come in on a 62-game regular season winning streak, dating back to 2006. A streak that the Hawks came close to ending last season.
