The Antigo Red Robins boys soccer program showed how far it has come Saturday, scoring a 1-0 non-conference win at Ashland.

The last time the Red Robins and Oredockers met on the soccer pitch was 2014, when Ashland shut out Antigo 11-0 in a regional playoff game. However, the 2018 results fell heavily in favor of the Robins.

As play opened in Saturday's match, it became clear that Antigo was the better team, with the Robins holding possession for more than 75 percent of the time.

Freshman Alex Samolinski got Antigo's offense started with three solid shots on goal in the early stages of the first half.

“As we got rolling, it seemed all our shots were going right into the keeper's hands,” Head Coach Ben Wilhelm said. “We finally found the net 20 minutes in, Jacob Peloquin sent a crossing pass into the keeper's box and the Samolinski brothers worked together to collect the pass and carefully ensure it crossed the goal line.”

Senior Noah Samolinski got the final touch for the goal, with his brother Alex garnering the assist.

In addition to Peloquin and the Samolinskis, Brody Bunnell also offered up significant of
