Lady Robins have tough night on court, fall 52-41 to Pines
space
Antigo girls basketball coach Dennis Duchac had a simple explanation as to his team’s 52-41 loss at the hands of Northland Pines Friday.

“We just didn’t play very well,” he said.

Although the deficit was only 11 points, the Robins struggled in finding an answer to Pines’ Lexi Smith and Carly Ridderbush who combined scored 42 of the Eagles’ points. Smith, a freshman, tallied 25 of them with Ridderbush scoring the other 17.

“We shot better from the field (15-for-30), which was a positive but we couldn’t get into any flow,” Duchac said, citing his squad’s double digit turnovers, troubles in getting the rebound and poor performance at the free throw line (6-for-13) as key factors in the loss.

Down 14-9 early and 26-17 at the half, the Robins matched Pines nearly point-for-point in the second half, 26-24, but fell short in making up the difference.

“It was pretty sloppy basketball. We can’t play like this and expect to win,” he said.

Among the lone highlights of the game was the play of sophomore guard Nicole Payant who finished a perfect 3-for-3 from three-point range to finish with nine points.

“She did a nice job coming off the bench,” Duchac said.

Brittney Wald was Antigo’s high scorer with 11. Steph Hanke finished with nine followed by Mikayla Nelson and Chelsea Payant, each with four. Abi Warren chipped in two.

The Robins will host Rhinelander on Tuesday. Player parents will be honored between the J.V. and varsity games.
