Lady Robin seniors honored in soccer home finale
space
With it happening to be Senior Night for the Lady Robins soccer team Tuesday night at Listle Field, the girls wanted to impress. However, with previous injuries abound, Coach Bethany Bauknecht was forced to draw from her junior varsity squad in a 3-1 loss to Medford.

Bauknecht later commented about her called-up talent’s ferocity. “Many of the girls played positions they were not used to. Despite the new positions they played together very well and communicated wonderfully.”

Medford was quick on the attack, scoring their first of three goals at the 11:22 mark of the first half. Another goal roughly six minutes later (17:20) and the Raiders final goal of the evening just before the half at 24:41 saw Medford go three goals unanswered.

The Lady Robins would not be shutout in the first half, however, as senior MacKenzie Parise was able to net a remarkable goal at 26:48, bringing the girls into halftime with a vote of confidence.

Unfortunately, it would be Antigo’s only goal.

“Despite the remarkable effort from (the Antigo girls), they were only able to connect with the net once,” Coach Bauknecht said.

The Lady Robins’ defense, with senior Steph Hanke commanding the girls, fell into place, allowing Medford to put very few shots on goal. Holding the defensive line, Antigo kept the Raiders from scoring in the second half.

Goaltender Markea Wyron finished her day in net with 18 saves.

“They really played well and left everything on the field. Despite their losses they don't give up and take every game as a new beginning,” Coach Bauknecht added. 

The Lady Robins take on the Northland Pines Eagles in Eagle River on Thursday at 5 p.m.
