Muskie boys pleased to clinch first place

The Muskie boys' soccer team set two goals for themselves heading into this season.

The first was to clinch a first-place bye to the NorWOSSA final and the second was to advance to OFSAA.

Fort High has already accomplished the former, dispatching both the Kenora Broncos and host Dryden Eagles last Wednesday to secure the first-place bye with a perfect 4-0 record.


Soccer is a fast moving sport and sometimes the best thing to do is just to protect yourself, as this youngster on the right quickly found out during the Spain vs. Germany match yesterday evening in Division 4/5 soccer action at the St. Francis Sports Field. Fort Frances Youth Soccer has resumed action for another great season, with games running Monday-Thursday nights each week.

Manitou T-Birdies' third baseman Katie Sadewasser loaded up to make the throw to first after fielding a soft grounder during her squad's 19-2 loss to the Fort Frances Her-icanes in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League season-opener Monday night at VanJura. The three-time defending champion Her-icanes flexed their offensive muscles early and often in the lopsided win.

Muskie girls settle for fourth in Kenora tourney

Having a chance to medal is right where the Muskie girls' soccer team wanted to be over the weekend.

They fell just short of that goal, falling 2-0 to the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints in the bronze-medal game of the Broncos Challenge Cup tournament on Saturday afternoon in Kenora, but Muskie head coach Sara Roach was still happy with the effort her squad put forth.

Muskie boys place third

It's been another great start to the season for the Muskie boys' soccer team.

After defeating both the visiting Dryden Eagles and Kenora Broncos by a combined 7-0 total in the NorWOSSA season-opening games last Wednesday, the black-and-gold kept that momentum rolling as they battled to a third-place finish at the Broncos Challenge Cup tournament in Kenora over the weekend.
