Listle Field favored Lady Robins in non-conference test
space
Antigo girls soccer team welcomed Iron Mountain, Mich. to Listle Field Monday in a non-conference game which ended in a 2-0 Red Robin victory.

The Antigo girls started out strong in communicating, passing the ball up the field, and playing smart.

After 11 shots on goal, Antigo’s Breanna Brennecke (junior) was able to sneak a long, high shot up and over Iron Mountain’s goalie, making the score 1-0. Less than three minutes before half-time, Keah Mach (junior) scored another well-placed goal with an assist from defender Steph Hanke (junior.)

Antigo eagerly jogged back onto the field for the second half, feeling confident with their 2-0 lead, but they didn’t let their guard down. The defense was solid, only allowing Iron Mountain to take four shots on goal for the entire 80 minutes, all of which sophomore, Mara Wurtinger saved.

Caroline Roller (sophomore) was patient and especially valuable at defense as she not only shut down many Iron Mountain attackers but also moved the ball beautifully up the field to pass off to the Robin attack.

“Such stellar playing in the back field by Caroline and her fellow defenders is what allowed Antigo to maintain control and continue to keep Iron Mountain’s defense on edge,” Red Robin coach Aimee Hein said.

Many Antigo girls were able to get a shot on goal, including Mikayla Nelson (junior), Lauren Smith (sophomore), Alicia Lex (senior), MacKenzie Parise (junior), Marissa Hartman (freshman), Haley Hill (junior), and Julia Schuh (junior).

“The girls played so well together as a team, not one player standing out over the other which is evident in the number of girls who were able to get a shot on goal,” she added.

Antigo will only get a short break, as they will face conference rival, Rhinelander, tonight at home at 4:30 p.m.
