It was a cold and windy night at Veterans Park in Mosinee as the Rhinelander Hodags were set to take on the GNC leading Indians.
The Hodags were quick to make their presence known with Jordan Lundt getting a 2 yard sack to force 4th and 8 on the Indian’s opening drive, forcing the only Indians punt of the night. Once the Hodags had the ball, the hard-working Hodag offense got to work.
Brandon Reinthaler avoided 3 Mosinee defensive players before slinging the ball to Cole Oettinger for a gain of 10. Reinthaler connected with Bryce White for a beautiful 66 yard pass down the sideline that got the Hodags to the Indians' 3 yard line.
The Hodags would score on their very next play with a keeper from Reinthaler for the final 3 yard push. Gunnar Millot would kick the extra point for the Hodags. On the kickoff, the ball was taken all the way to the end zone for what looked like an easy Mosinee score, but the touchdown was blotted out by an illegal block in the back by the Indians giving them the ball at their own 9 yard line.
