Junior squad needs to take more chances

While the Muskie junior boys' volleyball team has been able to tread the NorWOSSA waters so far, its coach is hoping that it will start playing with more aggression moving forward.

Through six games in league play, the Muskies have compiled a respectable 3-3 record but they need to assert their style of play more if they are to have success in the second half of the season.

Setting up ball

Andros Bruyere (6) set the ball up for his Muskie teammates to attempt to record a kill during the first set of Fort High's 2-1 loss to the Dryden Eagles in NorWOSSA junior boys' volleyball action last Tuesday afternoon here. The black-and-gold saw its league record fall to 3-3 with the setback.

Muskie fundraising

The Muskie girls' hockey team braved the elements on Saturday afternoon as they hosted a fundraising barbecue and tag day in front of Safeway here. Members of the black-and-gold were serving up hotdogs to hungry patrons and were taking donations from anyone interested in supporting the team. The Muskies are slated to open the NorWOSSA season on Nov. 12 against the host Kenora Broncos.

Double-teamed

Reece Hopfner (14) and Michael Chapman teamed up to take the puck away from Wisconsin Lumberjacks' forward Nicholas Solema during the second period of the Fort Frances Lakers' 6-5 overtime loss on Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. It was the first SIJHL win in franchise history for the expansion Lumberjacks.

Curling advice

Charlotte Bazylewski lent some of her expertise as she taught a youngster how to curl last Thursday evening at the Fort Frances Curling Club. Former Muskie standout Hailey Beaudry also was on hand to give sweeping tips and lessons to anyone who was interested in improving their game.
