FEATURED STORY
Hodags Battle Mosinee to 1-1 Tie

     On a rain soaked and windy Mike Webster Stadium field, the Rhinelander Hodag soccer team battled the Mosinee Indians to a 1-1 tie Thursday evening. The match was originally scheduled to be played at Edgewood Park in Mosinee, but was moved to Mike Webster Stadium due to poor field conditions in Mosinee.
     The Hodags were hoping to take advantage of the home field, but Mosinee struck early just 1 min. and 26 seconds into the contest. Mosinee senior Duarte Pedro caught a long pass from the midfield and scored on a shot that went from left to right past Rhinelander goalkeeper Gavin Osterman. The next 15 min. of the first half, both teams struggled to possess the ball and create solid scoring opportunities. The wet turf and strong winds hampered any attempts to create any quick strike offense.
     At the 20 min. 49 second mark, freshman Braden Mork was able to steal the ball at midfield and send it ahead to junior Hugh Wiese. Wiese delivered a low shot that was bobbled by the Mosinee keeper and found the back of the net. After the tying goal was scored the Hodags built some offensive momentum.
     After the end of the first half the score was tied at 1-1. During the halftime thunderstorms and heavy rain moved into the area and forced the game officials to suspend the game. According to WIAA rules the officials have the power to rule the game over, or schedule a replay. The officiating crew decided to end the game as a tie.
     " I was really frustrated that we couldn't continue the game as we were really beginning to surge offensively towards the end of the first half" said Rhinelander head coach Nathan Bates.
The Hodags soccer team will play Shawano on Monday and then will return home for a game against Antigo on Thursday.

Hodags Topple Lakeland 2-1

After a string of very close losses, boys soccer coach Nathan Bates was looking for that one missing ingredient- intensity. On Thursday night at Mike Webster Stadium his team provided two solid halves of intensity to beat the Lakeland Thunderbirds 2-1.
     In the previous three contests of the season, the Hodags got off to slow starts. That was not the case against Lakeland on Thursday night. Rhinelander began the game with a ferocious attack from the first whistle. The Hodags dominated the first half offensively with numerous opportunities as a result of some nifty give and go passing through the middle of the field. After generating 10 shots on goal however, they couldn't find the back of the net in the first half ended in a 0-0 tie.
     The Hodags started the second half with the same intensity as the beginning of the game. Twenty six minutes into the second half the Thunderbirds goalkeeper was replaced due to an undisclosed injury. Minutes later Rhinelander was awarded a penalty kick and senior defender Harrison Shinners buried the ball into the back of the net for the 1-0 lead.
     Two minutes later Lakeland senior Kyle Bengtson scored on a penalty kick to tie the game at 1-1. With three and a half minutes left in the match the Hodags regained the lead on a ball that was mishandled by the Lakeland goalkeeper. The game officials ruled the score as an "own goal". The shot however was last touched by junior forward Jacob Ostrander. The Hodags and Thunderbirds traded punches for the last 3 minutes of the game, but Rhinelander was able to hang on for the win.
     "It felt great tonight, the boys played their hearts out and gave 110 percent for the entire game. Lakeland is a tough team and we came together tonight as one team and it showed" said coach Bates. "The goal we scored on the penalty kick set the tone, the boys were hungry and proved that they wanted this game".
Rhinelander's next game is on Thursday, September 12 at Mosinee.
