Muskie boys nab win

OTTAWA—The Muskie boys’ hockey team survived a late comeback attempt by the General Amherst Bulldogs (Amherstburg) to earn a 3-2 victory this morning at the OFSAA ‘A/AA’ championships in Ottawa.

“We hung on,” Muskie head coach Jamie Davis said with a laugh.

“I thought we played really good.”

But Davis was less pleased with the efforts of the referees.
