     The race for the top spot of boys soccer in the GNC, just got a little bit tighter as Rhinelander and Lakeland battled to a 1-1 tie on Thursday night at Lakeland Union High School.
     The match was evenly played from the start with both teams creating numerous scoring opportunities. At the thirty nine minute mark, Hodag sophomore midfielder Beau Howard was able to fire a low shot that beat the Thunderbird goalkeeper for the 1-0 lead.
That goal sparked some offensive firepower for Rhinelander as they outshot Lakeland 7-1 for the next six minutes.The goalkeepers were kept busy in the first half, including a close call for both teams as the Hodags and Thunderbirds each hit a crossbar.
     The second half was similar to the first, as both teams exchanged scoring opportunities. At the fifty one minute mark of the second half Lakeland tied the score at one on a goal by senior Brandon Boh. The tying goal swung the momentum back to the Thunderbirds, as they pressured Rhinelander goalkeeper Gavin Ostermann to make two point-blank saves at the fifty five, and sixty five minute mark. The Hodags countered with two excellent scoring opportunities of their own. Time expired and both teams had to settle for the tie.
     "I really wanted to play well tonight as this was a huge game not only in the conference but for playoff rankings. We have struggled a bit lately but seem to show up against the better teams. We are disappointed that we tied tonight but are happy that we played as a team, worked really hard and created some good scoring opportunities", said Hodag goalkeeper Gavin Ostermann. 
     "I knew in the second half that Brandon (Boh) would put a lot of pressure on our defense, but we worked really hard in practice on communicating on the field. I felt our defense did a fabulous job tonight and I'm really proud of the effort of our kids tonight", said coach Nathan Bates.
The Hodags next conference game is on Tuesday, October 8 at Mosinee.
