Hodags blank Robins in girls soccer match
space
Tuesday’s weather may have been a bit warmer and brighter than the Red Robin girls home soccer game as the outcome was a bit colder with the Lady Robins falling 5-0.

Antigo expected a tough opponent in Rhinelander, but the Hodags scored three goals within the first three minutes was a bit more than the Antigo squad had bargained for.

“After an opening like that, the girls heads dropped a bit and panic took over,” Antigo coach Aimee Hein said.

At half-time Rhinelander had scored two more goals while Antigo had yet to take a shot on goal.

Knowing what needed to be done in order to turn the contest around, Antigo went out with determination and heart. Steph Hanke (junior), Tyler Tatro (freshman), Felicia Fermanich (senior), Caroline Roller (sophomore), and Lauren Smith (sophomore) came up with steals and/or interceptions, making the second half more difficult for Rhinelander's attack. Robins goalie, Mara Wurtinger, was able to pull off 11 saves.

On the other end of the field, Smith, Haley Hill (junior), and Marissa Hartman (freshman) each were able to take a shot on goal. After the end of the second half the score was still 5-0 in Rhinelander's favor.

“Although we came away with a loss, I was happy with the way they persevered through a disheartening situation and played a better second half,” Hein added.

Antigo will get a day of rest before traveling to Lakeland on Thursday.
