Junior hoopsters grind out gold

They knew the target was squarely on their backs and that a talented Kenora Broncos' team would be hungry to try to snatch the crown from them at the “Fish Tank.”

But the top-ranked Muskie junior girls' basketball team displayed the skills that had made them the top dogs of the regular season in a scrappy 39-25 win over Kenora in the NorWOSSA final last Tuesday.

Standing ground

Alina Eldridge looked to stand her ground defensively while Brynn Montgomery of the Dryden Eagles tried to blow past her and cut to the hoop during the first half of the Muskie senior girls' basketball team's 46-35 win in the NorWOSSA final last Tuesday night at Fort High.

PeeWee A tourney

Aiden Knapaysweet of the West End Bruins looked to clear the puck out of his own end while Ryan Brown (#15) of the Emo Express Green had his sights set on him during Emo's 4-1 win Sunday in the gold-medal game of the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association's annual PeeWee 'A' tournament at the Ice For Kids Arena. The Express Green compiled a 3-0-1 record en route to claiming the title.

Net work

Kobi Ward and Caleb Allan were prepared to do whatever it took to keep the ball from creeping over the net during the Muskie senior boys' volleyball team's 3-2 loss to the top-ranked Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA final last Tuesday at Fort High.

Double wall

Joe Hardy (#6) and Jaxon Gartzke (#17) looked to combine to form a stellar wall on a block during the Muskie junior boys' volleyball team's 3-1 win over the Dryden Eagles in the NorWOSSA final last Tuesday afternoon at Fort High. That good defence was key after the Muskies had dropped the first set but then rallied back to snatch gold away from the Eagles.
