Junior hoopsters dominate in Dryden

Make way for the “Muskie Express.”

The black-and-gold rolled through its opponents like a freight train at full steam during a pre-season junior girls' basketball tournament hosted by the Dryden Eagles over the weekend.

It was all Fort High from the get-go at the four-team round-robin event as the Muskies went 3-0 to capture the title—winning every game by at least 19 points.

Senior Owls hoopsters thumped

The St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) didn't hit every shot they took.

It just seemed like they would.

A blistering 12-0 start propelled the Saints to a 41-16 romp over the host Rainy River Owls on Monday in the NorWOSSA 'A' regular-season opener for both teams.

“Usually, it's pretty close between us and them,” said Owls' coach Rebecca Tolen.

Just one of the 13 players on the roster is in Grade 10, meaning it mostly was a cast of first-time high school competitors that took the floor against the seasoned St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) in the NorWOSSA 'A' regular-season opener for both squads Monday at RRHS.

Wrapped up
