Muskie girls rounding into form

When you're a team lacking an explosive offence, keeping games to low scores is vital to succeed.

Fortunately for the Muskie girls' soccer team, they've done that—although it hasn't translated into very many wins so far this season.

Head coach Sara Roach is pleased with how her young squad has competed and is hopeful the victories will start to come.

Play at plate

Michelle Cain of the Fort Frances Mud Dogs narrowly beat out the tag of the Couchiching Lady Raiders' catcher during her squad's 11-7 victory in Rainy River District Women's Fastball League play last Wednesday evening at the St. Francis Sports Field. It was the Mud Dogs first win of the season.

Soccer opener

Muskie Peyton Avis (13) looked on as his teammate tried to deke around a Kenora Broncos' defender during their squad's 1-1 draw in the NorWOSSA season-opener for both teams here yesterday morning. The black-and-gold then earned their first win of the season with a 5-0 shutout of the Dryden Eagles that afternoon. The Muskie girls, meawhile, fell 2-0 to Kenora and 3-1 to Dryden.

Side by side

Muskie Syd Beck, left, looked to get to the ball before her Dryden Eagles' opponent did during her squad's 3-1 loss here last Wednesday afternoon. The black-and-gold have an 0-2 record in NorWOSSA play heading into today's matches against the host Eagles and Kenora Broncos.
