Bantam Leafs nab title

It was a perfect weekend for the Bantam Leafs of the Fort Frances Girls'/Women's Hockey Association.

The squad won all three of its games, then earned a 3-2 victory over East Grand Forks in the championship game to claim the Grand Forks 15U tourney title.

Issy Taylor scored the first and third goals of the game while Tatum Glowasky notched the second one.

Strong forecheck

Muskie captain Annalise (“CC”) Hayes looked to keep Payton Boyko of the Dryden Eagles hemmed in her own zone during third-period action of Fort High's 5-2 win last night at the Emo/La Vallee Community Centre. Hayes notched a goal to help lead the Muskies (5-0-1) to their fifth win of the NorWOSSA regular season.

Muskie girls take revenge on Eagles

Revenge is a dish best served in Emo.

A four-goal first period sparked the Muskie girls' hockey team (5-0-1) to a 5-2 win over the Dryden Eagles last night at the Emo/La Vallee Community Centre.

Last Tuesday, it was the host Eagles who emerged with a 4-3 overtime win, but the Muskies made sure to flip the script in the teams' second meeting of the NorWOSSA regular season.

Skating party

Graham Cumming and his daughter, Tayah, had some fun on the ice taking part in the Canada 150 “Skating Day” that was held Sunday at the Ice For Kids Arena. The event, held from 1-3 p.m. and free to the community, featured free skating instruction, face-painting, coffee, hot chocolate, and a Canada 150-themed cake, among other activities and refreshments.

Court teams get split

All four Muskie court sports teams kicked off their NorWOSSA seasons yesterday against the host Kenora Broncos.

The senior boys' basketball team came away with a 71-58 triumph.

Aaron Bujold led the way with 20 points while Cole Kowalski, Kobi Ward, and Garrett Hyatt each had 13.

It was a different story for the junior boys, however, as they fell 61-51 to the Broncos.

Homophobia speaker

Former OHL player Brock McGillis was at the Townshend Theatre yesterday to speak to Fort High students about his struggle of being a closeted pro athlete, as well as share his empowering message of self-love and inclusion, while also aiming to change the perceptions of LGBTQ athletes and individuals.
