Northern Edge defeats Waupaca 6-4 for first conference victory
The Northern Edge girls hockey team posted its first conference win on Monday as the Antigo/Rhinelander/Three Lakes squad traveled to Waupaca, defeating the Comets 6-4.

“I am glad we started off our season with a conference win,” coach Corie Bottemiller said.

Northern Edge got off to a quick start at the 7:17 mark of the first period. Katie Detert hit the back of the net, assisted by Lauren Smith to make it 1-0.

In the second period at the 9:19 mark, Detert scored again on an even strength goal, assisted by Lindsey Steger.

The Comets got on the board with a pair of goals in the second period by Mandy Tomlinson and Brianne Huettner who was assisted by Tomlinson.

The Edge quickly scored again at the 9:37 mark with the same combo, only this time, Steger scored and Detert assisted ending the second period 3-2 in favor of the visitors.

Steger scored on a power play goal in the third and was assisted by Detert. Waupaca slipped a shot past the Northern Edge goalie to bring the contest within one at 4-3. Thirteen seconds later, Smith notched an unassisted goal pushing the lead to 5-3.

Steger rounded out the scoring with a goal assisted by Detert and Smith to secure the win despite a late period tally by Waupaca.

Edge goalie Shea Petersen recorded 27 saves in the contest.

“Shea had a solid game in net,” Bottemiller said. “Lindsey and Katie had a very productive day on offense, and Grace Hogar played a solid game at defense for us as well.

Detert’s second tally of the night gave her a career total of 30 which leaves her one behind the program record set by Nikki Kloes at 31.

The Northern Edge, now 2-2 are back in action on Friday at the Rhinelander Ice Arena when they host Tomahawk. Game time is slated for 6 p.m.
