Robins win conference title on rainy night in Mosinee
space
The Antigo Red Robins football team has accomplished what it set out to do at the beginning of the season, win an outright Great Northern Conference championship for the first time since 2010.

Friday night, the Robins, GNC co-champs the past two years, came from behind in the fourth quarter for an exciting 21-14 rain-soaked win at Mosinee, combined with Merrill’s stunning 28-7 home defeat at the hands of Medford, clinched the first place finish.

It was a goal at the start of the season, Tom Schofield, head coach said. We succeeded with hard work, dedication this summer, it was well earned and I am proud of them.

Antigo moved to 5-0 in conference and 7-1 overall with its sixth win in a row. Mosinee, an unexpected GNC title contender this season, fell to 4-2 in conference and 4-4 overall.

Things started well for the Robins, as the opening kickoff of the game was returned to the Mosinee 49 yard line. Antigo proceeded to drive, highlighted by runs from Adam Schmidt and Jericho Kelly. Dominic Smith finished it with a five yard scoring run for the early 7-0 lead.

Antigo had several more scoring opportunities in the first half, but came up short each time. A late first quarter drive, which saw Schmidt rip off a 35 yard run, and Smith a 36 yarder, ended with a turnover on downs on the Indians three yard line.

A second quarter drive which began on the Mosinee 36 yard line, went just six yards. Quarterback Matt Winter overthrew an open Hunter Bolson on third down in his only pass attempt of the game, and Smith was stopped short on fourth down, giving the ball back to the Indians.

Mosinee capitalized, marching 70 yards, including a 40 yard Justin Stubbe run to the Antigo five. Stubbe capped off the drive with a two yard touchdown run on fourth down to tie the game at seven. Stubbe, the GNC’s leading rusher on the season, finished the night with 111 yards on 26 carries.

He’s an excellent runner, Schofield noted. They had a good game plan, they changed in the second half, a lot of mid-line dive type plays, we had to adjust to cover the gaps.

The score remained tied until Smith went in from 18 yards out with 7:28 to play in the third. The extra point was blocked, making it a 13-7 game.

The missed PAT loomed large, after a Carter Samples touchdown run put the Indians back on top 14-13 at the end of the third quarter.

Mosinee turned to Stubbe in the fourth as he began to take over behind his offensive line. The Robins turned the tide however, when Mosinee quarterback Ben Vandehey fumbled a wet ball on a fourth and one play, positioning Antigo in Mosinee territory.

Kelly then turned in the play of the game, going 39 yards, as he broke past a wall of Mosinee defenders on a third and short for the decisive touchdown. Smith ran in the two point conversion for the 21-14 score. Kelly led Antigo in rushing with 84 yards on just 10 carries. Schmidt had 77 yards on 12 carries. Smith gained 70 on nine attempts.

Mosinee threatened with a late drive, aided by two big Antigo penalties. One for a personal foul and one for pass interference.

I don’t like personal fouls, we need to keep our composure, Schofield said. The pass interference, I want to see the film, I thought it was well played, but we dug our heels in deep and got it done.

The Indians drove all the way to the Antigo 21 yard line, but a completed pass to Stubbe on fourth and 13 with 28 seconds left was fumbled and recovered by the Robins. Antigo took a knee and ran out the clock.

The Robins will close the regular season Friday, with a home game against rival Merrill.

We know the importance of beating Merrill and keeping our momentum, Schofield said. The goal now is to go as deep in the playoffs as we can, really the playoffs have already started for us.
