It's been a tale of two different seasons for the Muskie junior and senior boys' volleyball teams, but the latter was hoping that anything could happen in the playoffs.
Both squads hosted NorWOSSA semi-final matches yesterday, with the juniors downing the Kenora Broncos 3-1 while the seniors earned a 3-0 sweep over the Dryden Eagles.
They played all season to earn this shot and they were hoping to make the most of it.
Both the Muskie junior and senior girls' basketball teams capped off impressive regular seasons with wins last Tuesday against the visiting Kenora Broncos—and were excited at the prospect of winning gold at yesterday's NorWOSSA playoffs at Fort High.
The first game action of the season can be unnerving for any team—and the Muskie girls' hockey squad isn't exempt from those feelings.
But any bouts of nervousness quickly faded away over the weekend as the black-and-gold compiled a 2-1 record at the annual Scott Clendenning Memorial Showcase at the Memorial Sports Centre.
It was a nice way for the Muskies to kick things off.
Things appeared to be going well for the Fort Frances Lakers heading into Saturday night's showdown against the Thief River Falls Norskies at the Ice For Kids Arena.
The Lakers had snapped a three-game losing streak last Wednesday with a 4-3 shootout win over the host Norskies, then won their second-straight Friday night after blanking the visiting Minnesota Iron Rangers 4-0.
A season's worth of hard work and dedication paid off for eight members of the Muskie cross-country team as they took part in the OFSAA championships in Hamilton on Saturday.
Isabella Fortes had her eyes focused on where the puck was going, and did her best to keep it from entering the net, during the first period of the Muskie girls' hockey team's 5-0 loss to the Fort Frances Bantam 'AA' Canadians on Saturday morning at the annual Scott Clendenning Memorial Showcase at the Ice For Kids Arena.
Tatum Glowasky looked to drive to the hoop during the second half of the Muskie junior girls' basketball team's 29-19 win over the visiting Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA regular-season finale last Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 30). Glowasky netted five points to help pace the Muskies' offence in their league-leading seventh win of the eight-game season.
Jersey Masson looked to get her skate and pad against the left post as quick as she could to thwart a wraparound attempt by a Fort Frances Bantam 'AA' Canadians' forward during her squad's 5-0 loss Saturday morning at the annual Scott Clendenning Memorial Showcase at the Ice For Kids Arena.
With the way they've played this season, NorWOSSA gold more than likely is in the near future for the Muskie junior girls' basketball team.
The Muskies dumped the host Dryden Eagles 46-26 on Thursday afternoon to improve their league record to 6-1.
“I was happy that we got through the game as well as we did,” said Muskie co-coach Gord McCabe.
