    The second-seeded Eagles, 18-5 overall, will host either Rhinelander (15-9) or Mosinee (4-19) this Thursday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. at the Eagle River Sports Arena. The seventh-seeded Hodags and 10-seeded Indians were scheduled to play in Rhinelander on Tuesday of this week.
    “We are ready for the challenge from either club,” said Pines coach David Cox. “Mosinee won 4-3 over Rhinelander last Thursday night to split the series, so we are not sure who we are going to face Thursday. Playoffs are a strange time of year and

    The Three Lakes boys basketball team split a pair of Northern Lakes Conference (NLC) contests last week, falling on the road 63-43 to Laona-Wabeno before beating Goodman-Pembine at home, 57-51 in overtime.
    The six-point win at home this past Friday was one coach Ryan Bock said his team won’t forget anytime soon.
    Down seven with under a minute to go, Three Lakes’ Nate Cogar single-handedly led a comeback which put the game into the extra frame.
    In overtime the Bluejays would pull away, leaning on their bench, their defense and managing to hit a couple of key foul shots down he stretch to keep Goodman-Pembine at bay and

    The thousands of fans who packed the Eagle River Dome this past weekend witnessed some of the best hockey action of the season from the Eagle River Falcons.
    It wasn’t enough however, as Eagle River fell 7-5 to Marquette on Friday, then followed that up with a tough 6-3 loss to Mosinee the following night.
    Facing the league’s top two teams in the season standings, Falcons manager Mike Otto knew they’d have their work cut out for them going into the weekend.
    “We always want to win on our home ice,” Otto said. “That’s with any team in the league. If you can win your home games and

    The final tune-up for the WIAA postseason turned out to be a 4-1 Great Northern Conference win for the Northland Pines Eagles this past Monday as the Eagles overcame a first-period def­icit in Antigo to finish the regular season schedule with a victory.
    “We came out to a horrible start, but after that first goal the girls sort of woke up,” head coach Patrick Schmidt said. “It was good to get back to normal.”
    The Edge got on the board first just 2:43 in as Nevaeh Forester slipped a shot past Eagles’ goalie Piper Snedden to put the home team up 1-0.
    The Eagles wasted little time answering as Cameron Ramesh scored just over a minute later to tie the game at one-all. Abbigale Ahl­born put Pines ahead for good with an even-strength goal off assists from Ramesh and

    The conferences’s top team put the defensive pressure on and ran away with an 85-14 win in Phelps.
    “They pressed us the whole game, until they were 50 points ahead,” head coach Lynn Kolling said. “Our girls did a good job of staying in the game and they never stopped trying.”
    Crandon limited Phelps offensively as they were able to convert just six shots from the field on the night.
    “We just were not shooting the ball nearly enough, which makes it awfully tough to score points,” Kolling said. “Last time we scored 21 points against them, so I

    Three Lakes head coach Michele Brown admits that her team will at some point need to figure a way to get by Northern Lakes Conference (NLC) rival Elcho.
    That is if the Lady Bluejays want to make a deep run in this year’s WIAA Division 5 girls basketball tourney which begins next week at home for Three Lakes.
    We have to win the first two to get to the Regional final. And if it’s Elcho who’s there again, so be it,” Brown said this week.
    Following a lopsided 68-44 loss to Elcho on the road last Thursday, Brown
