Squirts take consolation crown at Marinette tourney
space
Both the Antigo Squirt “A” and Bantams hockey teams were in action over the past weekend and both were on the road, with the Bantams traveling to Medford and the Squirts competing in a tournament hosted by Marinette.

SQUIRTS (10U)

The Squirts opened play in Marinette against Manitowoc on Saturday morning and let a late lead slip away in a tough 4-2 loss.

Antigo led 2-1 heading into the third period, thanks to a pair of goals from Carson Rhode. Rhode's first was assisted by Billy Portman, while his second score was of the unassisted variety.

The Jr. Robins held that one-goal lead until just three minutes and 51 seconds remained in the game, when Manitowoc found the equalizer.

The Breakers notched the game winner with only 23 seconds left on the clock and added another with four ticks remaining in the win.

Goaltender Richie Veriha recorded 13 saves for Antigo in the loss.

The Squirts' second contest came later Saturday against the West Madison Polar Caps with Antigo emerging 4-3 winners.

The game was tied after the first period of play with Portman notching the lone Antigo score, assisted by Rhode and Liam Burt.

The teams exchanged goals in the second period, with Portman scoring again for the Jr. Robins, with a helper from Veriha.

Antigo took control in the third period, thanks in large part to Burt, who tallied a pair of late unassisted goals to give his team a commanding 4-2 lead.

West Madison registered a late goal but it was not enough as the Jr. Robins held one for the one-goal win.

Austin Martinson got the start in goal and recorded nine saves, as Antigo outshot West Madison 38-12.

The win moved Antigo on to the consolation championship and a matchup with the Iron Kings from Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Antigo outshot the Iron Kings 29-5 for the game, but found itself in a scoreless tie in the third period.

Burt put a stop to that, scoring goals at the 45 second, 5:18 and 9:37 marks to secure the 3-0 win.

Portman and Parker Chaney had assists in the victory, with Martinson stopping all five shots he saw to record the shutout.

“We gave up a late lead against Manitowoc in our first game but rebounded to win our last two,” head coach Bill Burt said. “We as coaches were very proud of the effort and great sportsmanship given by all the skaters and goalies.”

BANTAMS (14U)

The Antigo-Everest co-op Bantams team was in Medford Saturday and fell by a final score of 8-5.

Medford used a big four-goal second period to pull away for the win.

Scoring for Antigo-Everest came courtesy of Kyle Welsh, who scored twice in the first period and once in the third for a hat trick.

Thomas Passineau and Owen Dickman added the other Antigo scores, while Shaeden Fogelberg was also active offensively with a playmaker on three assists.

Dickman had two assists to give him a three-point game.

Goaltender Nolan Bunnell had another busy outing, making 33 saves as Antigo-Everest was outshot 41-20 for the contest.
