Out of the hack

Muskie girls' skip Tory Beaudry was locked in on where she wanted to place her shot while Katrina Slomke looked on during their rink's 8-1 win over Bear Creek SS at the OFSAA curling championships last Wednesday afternoon at the Fort Frances Curling Club. Beaudry skipped her squad to the “antique bronze” medal.

Backhand attempt

English River Miners' forward Jacob Siebega fired a backhander on Fort Frances Lakers' goalie Ismael Ralsten as defenceman Jack Dunnell tried to get his stick in the way during the second period of the visitors' 2-1 overtime loss in Game 3 of the best-of-five quarter-final playoff series Saturday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. Ralsten finished with 24 saves to earn the win.

Hanging medal

Muskie boys' skip Chris Silver, who is in Grade 12, bowed his head so he could receive his hard-earned gold medal to cap an excellent high school career. Silver led the black-and-gold to the title at the OFSAA curling championships with a 6-3 win over Widdifield (North Bay) on Saturday afternoon at the Fort Frances Curling Club.

Voyageurs sweepers

Griffin Garuk, right, and Isaac Strom of the Atikokan Voyageurs looked to sweep a shot down the ice during their rink's 11-3 win over Crestwood Preparatory College at the OFSAA curling championships Thursday afternoon at the Fort Frances Curling Club. The squad went 1-4 in Pool 'A' play to fail to advance to the championship round.

Watching shot

Muskie boys' skip Chris Silver looked on hopefully as teammates Owen Riches and Jason Bazylewski went hard on their brooms to get his stone down the ice during Fort High's 11-4 loss to Aldershot HS at the OFSAA curling championships last Wednesday afternoon at the Fort Frances Curling Club. But the black-and-gold rebounded with seven-straight wins en route to capturing the gold medal.
