Tough slate of games set for Robins 2017-18 season
space
The tentative 2017-18 schedule for the Antigo Red Robins hockey team has been set, although not finalized, it lays out an ambitious list of games for a team that has consistently established itself as one of the premier programs in the state.

Antigo’s season opener will be Nov. 28th against Stevens Point at the Langlade County Multi-Purpose Building and will be part of a scheduling anomaly. The Robins will play their first nine games and 11 of their first 12 at home. A schedule like that means Antigo will be on the road for a good portion of the second half of the season. Beginning Jan. 4, the Robins will play seven straight on the road and 10 of their final 12.

Antigo will be part of two tournaments and both feature elite competition. The annual home holiday tournament, set for Dec. 28-30, will bring in Bay Port, who eliminated the Robins in last season’s playoffs, and always strong D.C. Everest. Antigo will also play at the Wausau West tournament Jan. 19-20, which is loaded with state powers, including host West, Notre Dame Academy and Eau Claire Memorial.

Coach Borneman’s crew will again play a number of Great Northern Conference foes only one game each, with each contest counting as four points in the conference standings. The move is an effort to play a tougher schedule and get the team ready for postseason play in the process.

Medford, Tomahawk, Mosinee, Waupaca, Rhinelander and Lakeland are all on the schedule just once, with Northland Pines the only GNC team the Robins will see twice.

The loaded non conference schedule outside of tournament play includes New Richmond, KMMO, Neenah/Hortonville/Menasha, Superior, Appleton United, Somerset, Notre Dame Academy, Verona, Fond du Lac St. Mary’s Springs, West Salem, and Chippewa Falls.

All but two of Antigo’s opponents will also likely have a junior varsity team this team, meaning good competition for the JV team, boding well for the future.

The Robins spent the majority of the season ranked in the state’s top 10 a year ago, finishing 18-7 overall, before the Bay Port upset, 4-3 in a regional final.
