Muskie skiers dazzle at OFSAA

The Muskie Nordic ski team steadily improved throughout the season—and just may have saved their best for last.

The four-member contingent that qualified all put in great performances at the OFSAA championships held Thursday and Friday in Duntroon.

Emma Toriseva, Kayli Machura, Tori Toriseva, and Joseph Dueck all finished within the top 100 in their respective races.

Gift goal

Kirk Coppock had a wide-open side of the net to fire the puck into after he was dished a cross-crease pass by teammate Isaac Baron during the third period of the Fort Frances Lakers' 3-2 loss to the Thief River Falls Norskies on Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Hugging post

Isaiah Lawson of the Sioux Lookout Warriors looked to make a drop-pass around Jace Dittaro while Muskie goalie Darian Klem hugged his post during the second period of Fort High's 3-1 win last night in the opener of their best-of-three NorWOSSA final at the Ice For Kids Arena. Klem made 29 saves to help the Muskies gain the upper-hand in the series.

Owls' squad falls short

What was setting up to be a promising season ended in disappointment for the Rainy River Owls' junior girls' volleyball team.

The Owls saw their title hopes come to a crashing halt with a four-set loss to the host St. Thomas Aquinas Saints in the NorWOSSA 'A' semi-finals back on Feb. 13 in Kenora.

Discipline key for Muskie boys

The Muskie boys' hockey team knows it will have to be a lot more disciplined moving forward.

For now, though, the squad is going to enjoy advancing to another league final.

Matt Spence scored twice to pace the Muskies to a narrow 5-4 win over the fourth-place Saint Thomas Aquinas Saints in Kenora in Game 2 of the best-of-three NorWOSSA semi-final series Thursday afternoon.
