Junior varsity girls look to recover after loss to Cardinals
space
The Antigo JV girls basketball team hosted Northern Lakes Conference member Crandon on Tuesday night falling to the Cardinals 48-39 putting its record at 14-7 overall this season.

"It was a very good game," Antigo's head coach Bruce Brown said. "We kept it close, and the girls that came off the bench played very well."

Crandon came in looking to keep its undefeated season rolling as it hit Antigo's home court. The game went back and forth throughout regulation with each team driving to the basket. The Robins got fouled often in the first half getting to the line and hit five for 10.

The Cardinals starters moved the ball well and stayed patient waiting for high percentage shot opportunities. It took advantage of holes in Antigo's defense to find the bottom of the net and tallied up 21 points in the half.  

The Robins worked to stay in the game, but it was obvious its schedule was taking a toll on the girls. With a hard fought game the night before and some players sharing time on the varsity team, the Robins had difficulties keeping pace. 

The girls headed into the halftime break on the bottom of a 21-15 score.

The second half saw the Robins getting into the zone and converting more often from the field. However, it was unable to stop Crandon's offense and create key turnovers to turn the game in its' favor.

Antigo remained in the game and was almost able to pull out the upset finding itself down 36-33 with just two minutes remaining. The girls stepped up its' pressure trying to get the Cardinals to slip up and turn the ball over. It got six more points before the horn, but allowed Crandon to knock down another 12 before it was said and done and the Cardinals went home remaining undefeated.

"We took the loss against a really good team," Brown added. "We've had a great season and we're looking ahead to finish out strong."

Greta Parsons was the leading scorer for the Robins putting in 11 points and went three for five from the foul line.

The Lady Robins will close out its 2017-18 campaign Friday as they host Rhinelander.
