ANTIGO - Northern Edge goalie Sophie Schmidt stopped 48 shots on goal, but it wasn't enough as Superior stopped the Edge's five-game winning streak 3-2 on Saturday at the Langlade County Multi-Purpose Building in Antigo.

Katie Detert added to her team-leading points total with a pair of assists, but Rhinelander/Antigo/Three Lakes struggled without two standouts in uniform, Gabbe Millot (personal) and Kaitlin Rohde (concussion).

"We broke down at times defensively," said Edge coach Nick English. "It's kind of disappointing. I challenged our girls before the game, with missing a couple of players, who's going to step up?"

It was just the second win of the year for the Spartans, who improved to 2-6-1. Northern Edge dropped to 9-5-0, getting just 22 shots on goal.

"I told them, we have to put it behind us, it's not a conference game, so we have to focus on the conference games that we have ahead of us," said English.

Superior opened the scoring just more than halfway past the midpoint of the first period with an Anna Lurndal goal. Then, with under a minute left in the first, Detert left a pass for Taylor Trachte in the slot, who followed her shot with a rebound goal to tie it at one.

The Spartans took a commanding 3-1 lead into second intermission after goals by Devyn Moss and Kari Miller.

In the third, the Edge climbed back within a goal when Detert wrapped a pass around the goal and Lindsey Steger found the open net.

That made it 3-2 with just over eight minutes left. But with the Edge within striking range, Maddie Shinners was slapped with a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct on a hit from behind. That meant Northern Edge played shorthanded for most of the remaining five minutes of the game. The Edge couldn't muster a shorthanded goal, and Superior cruised to the win.

After the non-conference loss, the Edge still controls its path to a Great Northern Conference championship. That starts with a game on Monday at Point/Rapids.

"We won't have (Kaitlin Rohde) back for Monday, and with Maddie getting the game misconduct, we won't have her back for Monday, so it hurts. Once again, I'm going to challenge our girls. Who's going to step up?" asked English.

Point/Rapids beat the Edge 2-0 in the first matchup.

RHINELANDER - It's easy to slip on ice, skid on roads, or get stuck in the snow.

One thing that also happens is joint pain from common winter activities.

Shoveling snow is one of the biggest problems Rhinelander Chiropractor Dr. Tony Lowenberg sees causing this pain.

He said shoveling snow is a physical activity that can cause excessive stress on the body; especially for people who don't lift heavy often.

"Lifting and the twisting creates wear and tear on their body. Then [people] feel it as pain and then their muscles get tight," said Dr. Lowenberg.

Landscaper Greg Piasecki shovels snow as part of his job.

He said that shoveling snow causes him to have lower back pain. He needs to take pain relievers before and after.

"It's hard on your body if you shovel a lot," Piasecki said.

Dr. Lowenberg said chiropractic care can help prevent pain.

He also recommended stretching beforehand to warm up your body.

RHINELANDER - Nicole Hanse has a passion for health and she took a risk on it.

"I just kind of put a business out there," said Hanse.

That business started two years ago. But it wasn't just a love for wellness that motivated the start of a career in holistic living.

"I have Celiac Disease," Hanse said.

It's a disease that causes migraines, fatigue, and can keep her body from getting the nutrition she needs.

So Hanse decided to help everyone stay healthy after she learned how to help keep her health in good form. That's by proper diet, exercise, and the use of chemical free products like essential oils.

"Products that they can use in the home to reduce the toxic load for personal care products," she continued.

Even with four years of using and distributing Young Living Essential Oils, people still have their doubts on what she does.

"A lot of people don't know what health coaching is or people are just kind of apprehensive," Hanse said.

But Kristal Blomberg is one person who wasn't apprehensive about working with Hanse. They've been working together for about a year using essential oils to help their lives.

"I used to get chronic sinus infections and always at the doctors getting prescriptions and stuff," Blomberg said.

As a small Northwoods health and wellness business, Hanse wants to provide people with information they can use to better their lives.

"I want them to be empowered by knowledge and that's simply it," said Hanse.
