Girls' hockey final setting up to be a classic

Not much has separated the Muskie girls' hockey team and the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) this season.

What seemed to be the inevitable clash of the titans has come to pass as the first-place Muskies and second-place Saints will square off in the best-of-three NorWOSSA final this week to decide who advances to OFSAA 'A/AA' championship in Stratford from March 24-26.

Loose puck

Muskie goalie Jaden Cooper tried to pounce on a loose puck in front of his goal before Red Lake Rams' forward Connor Gravelle did during the second period of Fort High's 5-0 win in Game 2 of its best-of-three NorWOSSA semifinal series on Saturday afternoon at the Ice For Kids Arena. The first-place Muskies swept the series and advanced to face the second-place St.

Muskie scoring chance

Peyton Avis was dialed in on where he wanted to shoot the puck on Red Lake Rams' goalie Kyle Gelderland on a first-period scoring chance during the Muskie boys' hockey team's 5-0 win in Game 2 of their best-of-three NorWOSSA semifinal series on Saturday afternoon at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Watching closely

Busy crease

Tatum Glowasky crashed the crease and looked to beat her opponents to a loose puck in front of Sioux Lookout Warriors' goalie Anna Wesley during the first period of the Muskie girls' hockey team's 3-2 overtime win in the opener of their best-of-three NorWOSSA semifinal series last Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

NWOSSAA championship

Muskie Mike Vanderaa looked to keep Ewan Menard of the St. Ignatius Falcons from advancing the ball up the court during the second half of Fort High's 70-48 loss in Game 1 of the best-of-three NWOSSAA championship on Friday afternoon here. St. Ignatius then won Game 2 by a 85-48 margin on Saturday morning to sweep the series and advance to the all-Ontarios.

Tipping puck

Tatum Glowasky tipped a puck down to the ice from out of midair in front of Sioux Lookout Warriors goalie Anna Wesley's net during the first period of the Muskie girls' hockey team's 3-2 overtime win in the opener of their best-of-three NorWOSSA semifinal series on Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.
