Trophy celebration

Sioux Lookout Warriors' forward Ben Lavoie proudly hoisted the NorWOSSA trophy in the air while his teammates gathered around to join in the celebration after the squad knocked off the Muskies with a thrilling 4-3 double-overtime victory in the third-and-deciding game last Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Shaking hands

In the ultimate display of class and sportsmanship, Muskie co-captain Eric Pitkanen and Jersey Abraham of the Sioux Lookout Warriors exchanged handshakes and pleasantries at the conclusion of the hard-fought three-game series in the NorWOSSA boys' hockey final.

Shot on goal

Fort Frances Lakers' forward Ian Tookenay did his best to fire one past the defence—and English River Miners' goalie Michael Lenko—during his squad's 4-2 loss yesterday afternoon at the Ice For Kids Arena that extended the team's current skid to four-straight games.

Coach chat

Muskie girls' hockey team assistant coach Tressa Galusha was all smiles at practice Friday afternoon as she gave the squad some instructions. The black-and-gold are hard at work trying to keep in shape ahead of the all-Ontarios that run March 21-23 in Timmins.

Lakers lose pair

Home ice wasn't kind to the Fort Frances Lakers over the weekend.

The squad dropped both of its games at the Ice For Kids Arena, starting with a 4-2 setback to the Thief River Falls Norskies on Saturday night before falling by that same score to the English River Miners yesterday afternoon.

Smothering puck

Muskie goalie Darian Klem smothered the puck while Sioux Lookout Warriors' forwards Cortez Favot and Ben Lavoie lurked looking for any rebound that may be there during Fort High's 4-3 double-overtime loss in the third-and-deciding game of the NorWOSSA boys' hockey final Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Muskies ousted in wild contest

Maybe it wasn't the ending they had envisioned but the outcome certainly wasn't due to a lack of effort.

The Muskie boys' hockey team saw its season come to a screeching halt Tuesday night as the Sioux Lookout Warriors pulled out a thrilling 4-3 double-overtime victory at the packed Ice For Kids Arena in the third-and-deciding game to claim the NorWOSSA crown.

Steered aside

English River Miners' goalie Michael Lenko kicked a shot to the corner during his team's 5-2 win Saturday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. Lenko stopped 28 shots to earn the win and send the Fort Frances Lakers to their second-straight loss. The Lakers will host the Miners again tonight 7:30 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena.
