FEATURED STORY

After coming off a big Great Northern Conference road win against Mosinee, the Rhinelander High School girls' basketball team played strong with Merrill but fell down the stretch. The Bluejays would earn a 51-37 victory at Merrill High School on Thursday.

Rhinelander had solid defense on the night, but Merrill was able to capitalize on some outside shots down the stretch to extend their lead and earn the 14-point win.

The Hodags proved to be inconsistent offensively, and struggled knocking down some key shots. RHS only had one player in double digits on the night. Senior guard Kaly Kostrova was held to a season low of 11 points.

Ali Schickert and Ally Seefeldt each added six points. Seefeldt also just came off a game-high 22 points in their win over the Indians. But a team, Rhinelander needs to have more consistent scorers especially facing tougher opponents.

The Hodags battled strong in the first half, but still were down by seven at halftime. But Rhinelander didn’t back down and continued to chip away at the lead.

RHS was able to pull within five points with just over seven minutes left to play. But shortly after the Bluejays would march down the court and hit a pivotal triple to go up eight. From that point, Merrill would extend their lead and would finish with a 51-37 win.

Patience Pyan of the Bluejays would have the game-high of 15 points which include three triples in the non-conference victory.

The Hodags are now 4-5 overall this season and will travel to Stevens Points on Tuesday for another tough non-conference contest. Rhinelander will then return to Great Northern Conference action Thursday when they host Northland Pines at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium.

The Rhinelander High School girls' basketball team was able to fend off Mosinee on Saturday in a Great Northern Conference game held at Mosinee High School. The Hodags were able to hold off the Indians down the stretch to earn a 53-51 win. RHS is now 4-4 overall this season and now sit at .500 at 2-2 in the GNC.

In their first game back, after nearly a month of no games the Hodags started and ended strong, where it counts the most. Rhinelander rallied for a large lead over the Indians early on. But Mosinee would respond back and would get within four at halftime.

But that lead wouldn't last long as the Indians would come out strong in the second half and went on a 10-2 run to take the lead. The run was aided by some rushed shots and a few turnovers which sparked momentum for Mosinee.

Head Coach Ryan Clark called a timeout to get Rhinelander back on the same page and to break the run up and the Hodags responded to his message. From there RHS rallied for an 11-2 run and would quickly take back the lead.

Juniors Ally Seefeldt and Molly Wagler connected on a pair of throws with just over two minutes left in the GNC game. But that touch didn’t last as Rhinelander only went 1 for 5 in the in final minute, giving Mosinee a shot down the stretch.

Allison Miller of the Indians finished a layup to pull Mosinee with four points before McKayla Garski scored a quick layup off a steal with about 25 seconds left.

Freshman Kenedy Van Zile had a chance to make it a two-possession game after being fouled and sent to the free throw line, but missed both chances. The Hodags got the ball back after a Mosinee turnover. Wagler missed a shot inside with 11 seconds left.

The Hodags kept the defensive pressure on and Maddie Meyer tracked down a loose ball to tie up the jump ball. The Indians got the ball back with 2.9 seconds left.

Guard Seefeldt led the way offensively for Rhinelander with a game-high of 22 points. Senior guard Kaly Kostrova also finished in double digits, recording 16 in the win.

Jaynice Dulak and Garski led the Indians and each put up 12 points.

Rhinelander will be back in action on Tuesday when they host Tomahawk for another GNC matchup at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium.
