ANTIGO - We all know about the rough winter we have braved through.

One of the side effects is many Northwoods sports teams have been unable to get any games in.

But thanks to last weekend's temps, that problem as well as the snow seems to be a distant memory.

Tuesday afternoon, Antigo's girls soccer team finally had their season opener. The Red Robins were hosting Lakeland with very windy conditions.


First half, Clara Schroeder with the great pass up ahead to Katelyn Nimsgern. Katelyn sneaks it past the Antigo goal keeper for the goal. T-Birds up 1-0.

Later in the first, Morgan Courtney kicks it to Sydney Ziebart. Sydney fires one - it's blocked - but she gets the rebound to go for the 2-0 lead.

Lakeland gets the big win 4-0.

On the diamond, the Red Robins baseball team was also at home. Antigo took on Tomahawk at Kretz Park.

In the bottom of the fourth, with the Red Robins leading 1-0, Randy Krebbs had the bases laoded. He sent a sacrifice drive to deep center field. It allowed Max Nowinski to score easily and put Antigo up 2-0.

Tomahawk had the bases loaded in the top of the fifth inning. A passed ball opens the door for Aaron Leonhard to come home and make it a one run game at 2-1.

But the Red Robins have a huge sixth inning. Antigo scored five runs, including Josh Hale with a bases clearing double.

Antigo knocked off Tomahawk 7-3.

BLAINE, MINNESOTA - Firefighters from Upper Michigan put themselves at risk to battle fires in Utah.

On the way home, two were killed when the bus they were riding in crashed over the weekend in Minnesota.

Now the firefighter who was driving the bus is facing charges.

According to a criminal complaint, 28-year-old Michael Johnson told authorities he'd slept just 45 minutes the previous 28 hours as he drove a bus with 8 other wildland firefighters returning from a fire in Utah to their home base near Baraga in Michigan's Upper Penninsula.

Officers say Johnson was combative and showed signs of impairment at the crash scene, and later admitted to using marijuana the morning of the crash - and cocaine two days earlier.

MINOCQUA - Three local cyclists planned to bike in the Ride Across Wisconsin event just for fun this year, but a few days before the ride, a good friend of theirs became unexplainably sick. In that moment, the purpose of their ride changed.

"This is nothing. This is a day. This is an hour, a minute that I can keep going," said cyclist Connie Trapp.

For Trapp, riding 178 miles was a small hurdle compared to the struggle of a close friend.

"Just having somebody to ride it for and be encouraged that you're doing it for someone else besides yourself really helped," said Trapp.
