EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River Derby Track held the Northwoods Combat Challenge Saturday night.
A dozen Mixed Martial Arts bouts were on the card.
Hundreds of fans enjoyed the action under the big tent.
In the Main Event - Stef Schneider of Sugar Camp faced Missy Pontbraind from Norway, MI.
The 3-round bout went to the scorecards.
Schneider fell by unanimous decision.
"I went in there swinging," Schneider explains. "But I was winded and worn out. By the third round, I just lost my power. I just decided I was going to hang in there for the three rounds. Ended up losing by a decision. The crowd was definitely there cheering for me. Very happy with that."
It was a big night for several Northwoods competitors. The card held the first ever Border Battle - pitting athletes from Wisconsin against Michigan. But not everyone's night was measured by who had their hand raised.

CAMBRIA - Didion Milling Company in Cambria received 19 safety citations for its explosion in May. The fatal plant explosion killed five workers and injured 12 others. Didion plans on challenging some of the citations. The Occupational Safety and Heath Administration issued the citations for safety violations and proposed a $1.8 million dollar fine. The company's appeal could take up to a year.
MANITOWISH WATERS - After Terry Theisen got her middle school math class started with some computer coding, she needed to admit something about her level of programming expertise.
"None, absolutely none," Theisen said with a smile.
The North Lakeland School teacher did some basic coding when she was young, telling her students she used actual punch cards. Friday, was very different. Theisen's entire class learned on the go as they clicked and clacked on laptops as part of a worldwide event from their Manitowish Waters school.
