Hodags, Hatchets Earn Softball WinsSubmitted: 05/14/2013
Story By Joe Dufek


RHINELANDER - In softball, Tomahawk was in Rhinelander Tuesday night. Originally, they were supposed to face the Hodags in a double header.

However, Northland Pines was trying to get their Great Northern Conference games in. Because the long winter, GNC teams have been forced to schedule doubleheaders. Game One counts as a conference game. The second game does not. That's because if weather prevents the doubleheader to be completed, it won't effect the conference race.

In the end, Rhinelander agreed to play just the first game against Tomahawk on Tuesday. Rhinelander won the game at Pioneer Park 4-0.


Then, Northland Pines faced Tomahawk in the Hatchets second game. That one is also a GNC game. Tomahawk won 13-3 in 5 innings.

The three teams will play again in Eagle River on Wednesday. Game One between Northland Pines and Tomahawk begins at 4pm. Then Northland Pines will face Rhinelander. That game is scheduled to begin at 6pm.

On April 29, Northland Pines had to move their non-conference game against Phelps to Rhinelander due to unplayable conditions.
