No magic in Mosinee, Robins shut out in tough conference setback
space
With illness and injury already going against the Antigo Red Robins hockey team, the bounce of the puck was not on its side either, as the Robins left Mosinee Thursday night with a disappointing 5-0 defeat.

The game was scoreless for over 14 minutes until the puck began to go Mosinee's way. A shot from the corner by Matej Rychtarik went off an Antigo skater and found its way to the high slot, where Mosinee's Tyler Selenske buried a slap shot for a 1-0 lead.

It took only 14 seconds for Mosinee to score again, as a quick turnover by the Robins gave Trey Fitzgerald a breakaway, and he beat Antigo netminder Brody Bunnell for a 2-0 Indians' lead.

The early onslaught didn't stop there, as Mosinee's leading scorer, Tobias Holka scored his 16th goal of the season on a shot from the corner that somehow deflected off the padding of Bunnell and into the net.

“Late in the period we hung our heads and felt sorry for ourselves,” head coach Matt Borneman said. “Give Mosinee credit for taking advantage of our mental breakdown.”

The third goal came with just three seconds on the clock as Antigo found themselves in a big hole after the first period of play.

“A team can earn their own puck luck by out-working their opponent,” Borneman said. “Mosinee earned their puck luck tonight.”

The Robins picked up the intensity in the second period, but still couldn't get a shot past Mosinee goalie Stanford Swid, despite several outstanding chances on scrambles in front of the goal.

“We couldn't get a rebound or a dirty goal to cross the goal line,” Borneman explained. “Give their defense and goalie credit for taking care of business in front.”

Swid ended his night with 29 saves to record the shutout, his second of the season.

The Robins continued to battle in the third, putting 12 shots on Swid, but it was Mosinee who found the back of the net not once, but twice.

Fitzgerald netted his second goal just one minute and 50 seconds into the frame on a rebound goal and Ben Lardinois later put the finishing touches on the win with a hard shot from the high slot.

The goal was extremely similar to Selenske's first period score, with the puck bouncing to an open Mosinee player who delivered the goal.

Rychtarik added two assists in the win.

Bunnell ended his night with 30 saves for the Robins, who were out-shot only by a count of 35-29, but scoring remains an issue for Antigo.

“We definitely didn't play well tonight,” Borneman added. “I think the entire team would like another opportunity with Mosinee.”

The team continues to be without defenseman Landon Nelson, out with a thumb injury, and fellow blue-liner Chris Krueger missed the contest due to illness, forcing a shuffling of the Antigo lines.

Joe Bartletti was switched to defense from his usual forward spot and Carter Michalik saw extensive time there as well, and Borneman was pleased with their effort.

“The moves went well,” he said. “We thought Bartletti handled it very well, it may be something we see from him in the future.”

Antigo falls to 5-10-1 overall on the season with its third straight loss. The Robins are now 1-4 in Great Northern Conference play and will likely have to win their remaining GNC games against Rhinelander and Tomahawk, as well as get some help, to get a home game for upcoming conference tourney.

Mosinee continued its hot streak with its sixth straight win, improving to 11-5 overall and are now 5-2 in conference play.

Next up for the Robins is a Saturday non-conference game against another tough opponent in De Pere, scheduled for a 5 p.m. start at the Multi-Purpose Building, part of the annual “Hockey Days” celebration in Antigo.

“Hockey days is always a great event,” Borneman added. “We are ready to have some fun and continue getting better against De Pere.”
