The Rhinelander/Antigo girls' hockey team battled from being down 2-0, for two straight goals to draw with Northland Pines on Monday night at the Eagle River Sports Arena. In the Great Northern Conference Opener, Northern Edge used goals from Gwen Frederickson and Madi Losch to put up a fight against the defending conference champions. 

The Eagles started the contest strong and charted both of their goals of the night in the first nine minutes of action. McKenzie Ebert would score at 6:30 in the first period, and only five seconds into a power play to get Pines on the board. And shortly after, Allison Kieffer would add the Eagles final goal of the night at 8:56 to give Pines an early two-goal advantage.

Head Coach Kevin Sandstrom would use his one and only timeout in the first period after the Eagles charted two early goals. Northern Edge buckled down from there, and would rally back and kept the Eagles in check.

Rhinelander/Antigo got a spark of offense, when Frederickson connected on her first goal of the season off a pass from Payton Bunnell at 3:48. Frederickson's goal would pull the Edge within one, and gave the team momentum moving ahead.

Then with approximately nine minutes left in the final period, Rhinelander/Antigo tied the game at 2-2 on a goal from Losch. Bunnell assisted Losch on her shot that was just inside Northland Pines' blue line, marking her fourth goal of the year which tied the game up.

Neither team was able to score after that, including in the overtime season. Although a new shootout rule was implemented for 2017-2018 season, but was unclear to either coach or officials on the night. If teams are tied at the end of overtime during a conference contest, it is considered a tie for their records, but there will be a three-player shootout conduced for an extra conference point.

If approved by the conference, Sandstrom and Coach Patrick Schmidt will look to makeup the shootout prior to their second GNC game held on December, 21st in Eagle River.

Goalie Alicia Turunen recorded 28 saves in the tie, and it also marked her first GNC appearance in the net for the Edge. On the night, the Eagles outshot Rhinelander/Antigo 30-21 overall and held an 8-6 edge in overtime.

Northern Edge also took a hit and played a majority of the game without leading scorer from last season, senior Kourtney Carrico. The status of her return is not known at this time.

Rhinelander Antigo are now 1-4-1 this season, and will get back on the ice on Saturday when they host Western Wisconsin Stars at the Rhinelander Ice Arena. Faceoff is scheduled for 4:00PM.

The Rhinelander/Antigo girls' hockey team had their season opener on Tuesday night at the Rhinelander Ice Arena. Lakeland/Tomahawk had a late rally even without a few of their top players and used four straight goals to defeat Northern Edge 4-3.

Rhinelander/Antigo had a strong start and would tally two first period goals to take an early lead. But from there, Lakeland/Tomahawk raced back with four straight goals to take the lead and they would never look back. The Edge would score the final goal of the night to pull within one, but was not enough to get the job done.

On the night, Lakeland/Tomahawk would hold an 18-15 advantage on total shots. Northern Edge had eight of those shots in the opening period. 

Freshman Evelyn LeVegue of Antigo made a strong varsity debut, and was able to score just 2:01 into the contest. Jade Forster took the initial shot, and LeVegue was there to capitalize on the rebound. 

Then at 7:53, Alicia Turunen would connect on the Edges' second goal of the night. Sophomore Madi Losch slotted a pass to Turunen to give Rhinelander/Antigo a 2-0 advantage after the first period.

Lakeland/Tomahawk would start the second period with a chip on their shoulder and would respond early in the second with back-to-back unassisted goals from Makayla Fultz and Kate Vizanko just 15 seconds apart. And Kailey Godfrey give Lakeland/Tomahawk their first lead of the night after a goal at 13:38 in the second period. 

On their fourth straight goal, Lakeland's Ally Pairolero would have the go-ahead goal at 4:13 in the third period, which proved to be enough for the victory. 

Turunen would score her second goal for the Edge just minutes later at 6:47 to bring Rhinelander/Antigo within one goal, but that would be a close as they would get. 

Within the final five minutes of the contest, Northern Edge had several opportunities to cash in the equalizer, but goalie Mariah Lear would deny any of those chances. 

Senior Gracie Lenzner took the loss for the Edge and would record five saves in her efforts through the first two-periods. Freshman Nevaeh Forster finished in the net for Rhinelander/Antigo and made nine saves, and only allowed one goal in the third.

The Edge will face Lakeland/Tomahawk three more times this season, and proved the games will be a battle. It also showcased areas Rhinelander/Antigo will need to improve as they move forward.

Northern Edge will get back on the ice on Saturday when they host a doubleheader against Marquette Senior starting at 11:00AM at the Langlade County Multi-Purpose Building. The second game will begin at 4:00PM.
