RHINELANDER - In girls soccer, Rhinelander had to fight, scrap, and claw their way to win their regional final last weekend.
Hodags had a scoreless battle against Pulaski on Saturday.
In the shootout, Molly Willging gave Rhinelander the lead on the sixth penalty kick.
It all came down to goal keeper Morgan Voigt. Voight makes the save. Rhinelander is looking for their first trip to state this week.
"It would be awesome if we just keep being successful," Voigt said. "Maybe not as tight of games as tonight was - but you never know with the hardeer competition coming in. It would be awesome to go with this group of girls."
This is the second straight year, the Hodags won their regional.
Rhinelander hosts Marshfield Thursday in the D2 sectional semifinals. The winner plays in the sectional final at Wausau East on Saturday.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
