Robins clinch a fifth straight GNC title on Senior Night
space
While the outcome seemed likely on Thursday against a struggling Mosinee team, the Antigo Red Robins made it official, locking up at least a share of a fifth straight Great Northern Conference hockey championship with a 7-3 win on Senior Night in Antigo.

GNC means a lot to the boys and this community, Head Coach Matt Borneman said. For them to look into the rafters for the rest of their lives and see those banners hanging is quite an accomplishment, the pride our community has in its sports teams is unmatchable.

A class of nine Red Robin seniors were honored, part of one of the most decorated graduating classes in school history.

The core group of Jack Shinners, Matt Young, Matt Winter, Adam Schmidt, Brennen Spencer, and Garett Held were part of four conference titles and a state appearance in 2016. While Sawyer Grant, Zach Jaje, and Thomas Nelson were recent additions to the program, but all left vastly positive marks on their teammates.

Senior night is always special, Borneman said. The way this group handled adversity and the work they put in to get where they are is truly remarkable, this journey should bode well for the playoffs and life in general.

The game itself was dominated by the Robins, who put 70 shots on Mosinee goaltender Stanford Swid.

It took just under three minutes for Antigo to record its first goal, coming from Eric Langseth on a shot from just outside the circle. The Robins then went on the power play, as Mosinee’s Trey Fitzgerald was called for a five minute major penalty on a check from behind. Fitzgerald also received a 10 minute misconduct for the play.

Although looking a bit off with the man advantage, Antigo did cash in two goals during the five minute span, with Winter scoring off a pass from Schmidt at the 12:21 mark, and Schmidt tallying a score at 13:09, with C.J. Levis and Eric Langseth credited for the assists, as the Robins took a 3-0 lead to the first intermission.

Our power play moved the puck extremely well unfortunately we didn’t generate many opportunities, Borneman noted. The lanes were slow developing and we passed by our looks, our timing was off.

Levis needed only 31 seconds to make it a four goal game in the second, and Spencer followed with a goal near the circle, beating Swid stick-side for a 5-0 Antigo advantage.

Mosinee finally got on the board at the 12:04 mark of the second, courtesy of Trey Fitzgerald, following a breakdown by the Robins, setting up Mosinee for an odd man rush.

Antigo answered just over two minutes later when Levis fed Schmidt, who put a beautiful deke on Swid, burying the shot to put Antigo back up five.

Isaac Wickersheim put the game in running clock at 14:47 of the third with the sixth goal of the year for the sophomore, but Mosinee ended run time shortly after, taking advantage of another breakdown on the defensive side, leading to a goal from the Indians’ leading scorer Max Beste.

Mosinee played the opportunistic role well and cashed in on some rushes, Borneman added. We have to understand our responsibilities on the back check and have the heart to get it done no matter what the score is.

Beste added another goal in the third, as the Robins went deep into their bench late in the game looking to get some new numbers on the scoresheet. Despite their best efforts, the contest ended with the 7-3 final.

Shot totals stood at 70-12 in the Robins favor. A busy Swid made 63 saves for Mosinee, while Brody Bunnell stopped nine for Antigo.

Schmidt led the Robins in points on the night with four, coming on two goals and two assists.

The Robins improved to 10-11-2, and finish 7-1 in GNC play, totaling 39 points in the standings. Antigo could still win the conference crown outright, should Medford upset Northland Pines on Thursday.

Mosinee fell to 3-18 overall, and 2-9 in conference. Antigo will close its regular season with yet another tough non-conference game Friday, playing at Chippewa Falls.

Chi Hi always brings a hard working team, Borneman said. It’s a great game to get back to our max speed and our identities that suit our abilities.

The Robins open the WIAA playoffs on Thursday, Feb. 15, when they host the winner of this Tuesday’s game between Green Bay United and DePere in a regional final.
