Four goal explosion lifts Fondy over Antigo as Robins fizzle in opener
space
A four-goal explosion in a 6 1/2 minute time span of the second period was all the Fond du Lac Cardinals needed Saturday, as they put a damper on the Antigo Red Robins' hockey opener in a 4-1 final.

“Fondy has a lot of talent, they are fast and pressure hard,” head coach Matt Borneman said. “I was impressed they brought it for the entire 51 minutes. At one point I thought we weathered the storm, but the storm kept coming. They should be able to turn some heads this season.”

Following a scoreless first period in which Fond du Lac controlled the pace of the game and outshot the Robins 14-3, it took just 12 seconds of the second period for the Cardinals to go in front.

Caden Carlson struck with assists from Josh Stephany and Tanner Schultz. 52 seconds later Fond du Lac struck again, as Nolan Grier netted an unassisted, short handed goal following a defensive breakdown in the Robins' zone as Antigo tried to work its power play.

Grier scored again at the 3:34 mark of the second, assisted by Max Erstad, and a shell-shocked Robins' team found itself down 3-0.

Antigo used its time out to regroup and things settled down for a bit, until Keenan Schwartz found the back of the net at the 6:41 mark to make it 4-0. The goal, similar to the others came near the crease as the Robins were unable to clear traffic from the front of its goal.

“Our defensemen as a whole and our weak side wing have to get better at picking up guys inside our house,” Borneman explained. “For as much time as we spent in our d-zone our coverage was reasonable, just a couple breakdowns on scrums in front that need to be addressed.”

Antigo settled down despite the large deficit and managed to put 12 shots on Fond du Lac goaltender Corbin Guy in the second period. Guy was up to the task however and ended his night with 21 saves on 22 Antigo shots.

The Robins lone goal of the night came at the 8:10 mark of the third, as Joe Bartletti put a rebound shot home in front of the net, with Calvin Jansen credited for the assist.

Fond du Lac controlled play the remainder of the contest, out-shooting Antigo 17-6 in the third and 52-22 overall.

“We have more work to do then the coaching staff thought,” Borneman said. “It was obvious that the team wants to be reactive instead of proactive, we will have to remove our lazy gene if we want to accomplish anything this season.”

One positive stat for the Robins was just two penalty minutes in the game, while Fond du Lac was whistled for seven infractions resulting in 17 minutes of penalty time, with Grier flagged for three of those penalties.

Antigo could not take advantage however, going 0-7 with the man-advantage throughout the game, something that will surely be a sore spot for the Robins during practice this week.

“We knew Grier was going to give us power play opportunities, his attitude hasn't matured since playing against him last year,” Borneman noted. “Our compete on all the power plays was awful, in order to be effective we have to outwork the penalty kill unit, our reactive approach didn't bode well.”

Antigo will try to regroup before it hits the ice again for back-to-back games on Thursday and Friday. The Robins play non-conference road games at Wausau East-Merrill Thursday at Marathon Park in Wausau, before traveling to Chippewa Falls on Friday.

“It has been a few years since we have played Wausau East or Merrill,” Borneman added. “This is our first meeting against the East-Merrill co-op and we are excited to try and correct some glaring issues and put forth a better team effort.”
