Muskie boys roll to ninth title

The Golden State Warriors are currently in the midst of a dynasty in the NBA, having won three of the last four Finals.

The Muskie boys' soccer team has formed its own version of the Warriors, creating a dynasty of its own in NorWOSSA play as the black-and-gold added an impressive ninth-straight league title to the program's impressive history last week.

Tight defence

Greta Fedoruk (#5) and Cass Roach, second from left, were part of a stifling Muskie defence that weren't about to allow this Kenora Broncos' opponent much room to breathe during the first half of the Muskie girls' soccer team's 2-1 loss in the NorWOSSA final last Wednesday in Dryden.

Winding up

Muskie Jaida Norris got full extension as she prepared to hammer a pass up the pitch during the first half of Fort High's 2-1 loss to the Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA final last Wednesday afternoon in Dryden.

NorWOSSA champs

There wasn't an unhappy face in this huddle as the members of the Muskie boys' soccer team were full of jubilation after claiming their ninth-straight NorWOSSA title with a 2-1 win over the Eagles in Dryden yesterday afternoon. Fort High now advances to the OFSAA boys' 'AA' championships slated for June 6-8 in North Bay.

Ball chase

Angel McCormack of Al's Racquet Stringing charged down the pitch with the ball during the second half of her squad's 6-0 loss to La Place Rendez-Vous in the Borderland Soccer League women's division season-opener on Tuesday night at the St. Francis Sports Field. Claire Sobkowicz scored twice while Rochelle Douglas, Jennie Dyck, and Rindy Veldhuisen also bulged the twine in the lopsided win.

Girls' soccer action

Top-10 finisher

Javyn Maxton lifted and eyed up a walleye that he and his father, Mike Maxton, caught that was part of their 5.16-pound Day 2 haul. The father-son duo finished fifth at the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic with a two-day total of 12.26 pounds.

Runners-up

Les Morrison, left, of Baudette showed off the 6.78-pound lunker that he and his partner, Oliver Gibbins of Morson, caught on Day 2 as part of a 11.24-pound haul. The walleye was the biggest of the tourney and helped Morrison and Gibbins—who won the tourney back-to-back in 207 and 2018—finish second at the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic with a two-day total of 14.99 pounds.
