The Rhinelander High School girls' basketball team struggled in the 2017-2018 opening game on Tuesday night. The Hodags fell 61-25 to Wisconsin Valley Conference, Marshfield at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium. 

The Hodags struggled offensively on the night, and didn’t have an answer for Marshfield’s taller lineup which include four players finishing in double digits. Hannah Meverden, the Tigers' six-foot tall post led the way with 14 points. Meg Bryan, Jenna Jakobi, and Kate Osinski each also scored double digits for Marshfield. 

Meverden scored all but one field goal in the first half for the Tigers. While Bryan added 13 points, Jakobi finished with 12, and Osinski had 10 points in the win. Marshfield also went 7-of-10 from the free throw line. While Rhinelander only made two of their five attempts from the charity strip.

Rhinelander's top scorer of the night was sophomore point guard Kenedy Van Zile with six points. Senior Molly Wagler and junior Brooke Mork would each record four points. And senior guard Ally Seefeldt was held to three points in the loss. Payton Van Zile also had three points for RHS. The Hodags also had 16 turnovers, including nine in the second half and were held to only 10 second half points.

Early in the game, Rhinelander was able to hang with the Tigers as both teams jumped out to a slow start offensively. The Hodags were trailing by one point at 6-5 with about 13 minutes left in the first half. But from there, it went downhill, as Marshfield went on a 18-2 run and would hold a 40-15 lead at halftime. 
 
Marshfield carried their momentum from the end of the first half over to the second half and would go for 13 unanswered points in the first even points to extend their lead to 38 points. With just over four minutes left in the game the Tigers would push their lead to 40 and there would be a running clock for the final minutes of the game.

With facing a quality non-conference opponent early in the season, it showed Rhinelander's weaknesses offensively and defensively; in which they will look to improve before they begin their Great Northern Conference season.

The lady Hodags will have a chance to redeem themselves over the weekend when they compete in the two-day Tom Kislow Memorial Touranment held at Wausau East. Rhinelander will face host, Wausau East on Friday night and will then take on Cadott on Saturday afternoon.
