Wyatt Richards met his Rainy River Owls' opponent with some staunch defence near the basket as he blocked a shot during the first half the Muskie senior boys' basketball team's 82-37 win in exhibition action Friday afternoon at Fort High. Both teams used the game as a tune-up ahead of their upcoming NorWOSSA 'AA' and 'A' seasons.
It was all up to Darian Klem to stop Sioux Lookout Warriors' forward Isaiah Lawson from scoring as defenceman Jace Dittaro fell to the ice during the Muskie boys' hockey team's 5-4 win in their NorWOSSA home-opener Friday night at “The Duke” (Couchiching Arena). That good goaltending was pivotal as the Muskies (1-1) earned their first win of the season.
Jill Calder was all business as she cleanly won a face-off during the second period of the Muskie girls' hockey team's 4-1 loss to the Dryden Eagles on Sunday afternoon in NorWOSSA action at the Ice For Kids Arena. Calder also tallied the Muskies' lone goal in the third period.
Muskie Issy Taylor and Cali Lappage of the Dryden Eagles both looked to have the quickest stick in the draw during a face-off in the third period of Fort High's 4-1 loss yesterday afternoon at the Ice For Kids Arena. Lappage won the face-off and later scored an empty-netter to hand the Muskies (1-2) their second loss of the NorWOSSA season.
In the end they were simply overmatched, but it wasn't for a lack of effort by the Muskie senior girls' basketball team.
The black-and-gold saw their impressive season come to an end as they were swept by the Hammarskjold Vikings at the best-of-three NWOSSAA championship held Friday and Saturday in Thunder Bay.
Although it wasn't showing on the scoreboard, Fort Frances Lakers' head coach/general manager Wayne Strachan felt his squad was getting the better of the chances and dictating play Friday night against the visiting Red Lake Miners.
The problem was the Lakers couldn't bury their scoring opportunities while the Miners did in taking a 2-1 lead into the third period.
Focus on the goal at hand and work to get better each day.
That was the mindset of the Muskie girls' hockey team as they headed into a busy slate of games this week.
A new season has brought with it a new experience for a local wrestler.
Hudson Mann, who was born in Fort Frances but lived in International Falls, has moved to Annandale/Maple Lake, Mn. to fill out a heavyweight spot on the wrestling team there.
Most recently, Mann competed in the Outlaw Middle School Duel Championship at Luther College on Remembrance Day in Decorah, Iowa.
With their original NorWOSSA regular-season opener against the Kenora Broncos rescheduled to Dec. 15, the Muskie boys' hockey team was able to fine-tune its skills ahead of the season with a trio of scrimmage games Saturday in Warroad, Mn.
