MIDLOTHIAN | T.F. South quarterback Cody Petrich wasn't about to point fingers, and he put any blame for a Rebels loss squarely on his own shoulders.

T.F. South lost 22-13 to South Suburban Blue rival Bremen on Friday night.

Petrich and the Rebels offense struggled in the second hal, managing just 81 yards of total offense after halftime.

Petrich threw two interceptions Friday, including one just before the half to set up the Braves' go-ahead touchdown. Petrich took some serious shots from the Bremen defense and finished 8-of-19 passing with 101 yards and a touchdown.

"I made a big mistake as far as before the half," Petrich said. "We had opportunities the second half; we just didn't make the most of them."

Trailing 9-7 in the second, Petrich found Ka'ton Mays for a 12-yard Rebel touchdown to put T.F. South up 13-9. Mays touchdown catch was set up by a 38-yard pass play from Petrich to Mays.

"We just have to start winning ballgames," Petrich said. "That's basically all we can do now. We have to win ballgames."

After the Braves took a 15-13 lead into the half, the Rebels offense was unable mount a rally. The Rebels defense had trouble containing Bremen quarterback Tyler Banovich, and the Braves QB rushed for 68 yards and a TD.

"Defensively, we didn't contain Banovich," Rebels coach Tom Padjen said. "That's what we worked on all week. They're a good football team, and we have to regroup."

Petrich was hit hard late in the third, and the Rebels (2-3, 1-2) briefly went to Torian Lewis at quarterback.

"He was hurting and we went with our wildcat with Torry," Padjen said. "He gave us a spark, and he got us down there, but we couldn't convert in the red zone. That was the story of the second half."

With the loss, the Rebels will need to string together some wins to get back into the conference title hunt.

"We've been on the road for four straight weeks," Padjen said. "Now we get four weeks at home. We've got to get things turned around with our homecoming game next week."
