Marshfield boys hockey falls to Antigo
By John Kemmeter
MARSHFIELD – In a game that went down to the final period, the Marshfield High School boys hockey team lost to Antigo in a nonconference game at home on Dec. 13.
Antigo scored a power-play goal with 1:23 left in the first period to go up 1-0, which it stayed until Payton Smith scored on an assists from Seth Peterson at the 5:32 mark of the second period to tie the game at 1-1.
The score remained 1-1 into the third period, when Antigo scored at the 5:29 mark to take a 2-1 lead, and then added a power-play goal with 2:42 remaining in regulation to win 3-1. AJ Trierweiler made 21 saves for Marshfield.
“Tonight was frustrating,” said Marshfield boys hockey head coach Eric Bowman, whose team out-shot Antigo 37-24. “We are getting shots. We just need to find a way to put our opportunities in the back of the net. We out-shot them and had our opportunities but failed to convert.
“We are going through some growing pains right now, as we lost a deep senior class last year,” he said. “We remain confident that this will be a successful season, as players get more varsity experience and players develop into their roles.”
