The Rhinelander High School girls' basketball team hosted Antigo in the first round of the WIAA Division 2 playoffs on Tuesday night. The Hodags were able to hold off a late Robin run to earn a 53-45 victory at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium to advance to the regional finals.

In playoff basketball, Rhinelander did what they had to get the job done, with the team who loses ending their season. On their last night on their home court, seniors Kaly Kostrova and Ali Schickert each finished with double digits to lead RHS.

The Hodags would rally early on and started strong with a 16-4 advantage in the first half. Kostrova connected on four- triples in the first, as Antigo closed on a 12-8 run. RHS would take 24-16 lead at halftime.

Rhinelander would push their lead to 13 in the beginning of the second half, after junior Maddie Meyer hit a three, followed by an elbow jumper from Kostrova.

But Antigo proved they weren't going to back down that easy with their season coming to an end on the line. The Robins would battle back and took advantage of several Hodag turnovers used offensive rebound opportunities and went on a 12-2 run. After back-to-back three-pointers from Morgan Hotchkiss, the Robins pulled within five at 35-30.

Antigo also switched up their 2-3 zone and went to a man-to-man midway through the second half. Meyer would foul out with 8:12 left, and senior Allison Kondzela would sink both bonus free throws.

And junior Hannah Zenkovich would score three-straight points, first a basket inside, and then went 1-of-2 from the free throw line after being fouled to tie the game 37-37 with just over six minutes left in the game.

Kostrova missed a three, but earned the offensive rebound, and was able to foul out junior Kendall Smith. Ally Seefeldt, Kenedy Van Zile, Alayna Franson, Schickert, and Kostrova all iced some free throw down the stretch.

Sydney Lenzner hit a three for Antigo with 28.3 seconds left, but the damage was already done. Antigo selected to continue to foul to gain back offensive possession, where Kostrova scored the final two free throws.

Kostrova finished the night with a game-high of 18 points to lead Rhinelander. With fellow senior, Schickert finishing the night with 12 points and several blocks down low. Seefeldt also finished in double-digits for the Hodags, finishing with 11.

With the victory, Rhinelander will face top-seeded Hortonville on Thursday night on the road. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00PM, where the Hodags are looking to pull out an upset and continue their 2016-2017 season.

Junior guard Ally Seefeldt started the scoring for the Hodags, before senior Kaly Kostrova rallied off seven-straight points. Kostrova finished the series with a three-point play to put the Hodag's ahead 9-8 with just over 11 minutes left in the first half.

Molly Wagler got in on the scoring on an offensive rebound and putback at the block to put the Hodags back up by two at 15-13. Wagler scored again off an assist from Brooke Mork two possessions later. Seefeldt would add some free throws down the stretch, as Rhinelander took a 25-20 lead at halftime.

The Raiders would score the first four points of the half, and took the Hodags 3 ½ minutes to score in the second. Kostrova connected on a deep two, but would be the last points she would score on the night.

Mork earned a steal and finished coast to coast with contact. And shortly after Mork assisted Schickert for an inside bucket. Wagler than found Mork on a cut to the hoop for another inside basket.

And in Rhinelander's final score of the night, came from Maddie Meyer who connected on a three with 8:20 left in the game. The Hodags finished the night 2-of-12 beyond the arc.

The Raiders rallied back from being down and were able to shut the Hodag's down. Medford scored the final 13 points of the night, including six straight points from Sophia Pernsteiner that give the Raiders the lead they would hold until the final buzzer.
