Muskies defend tourney crown

Changing some of their roster didn’t change the outcome for the Muskie girls’ hockey team

Third-period goals by Emma Noga and Taylor Croswell were the difference as the Muskies successfully defended their title at the Sturgeon Heights Huskies tournament with a 4-2 win over the Kelvin Clippers yesterday in Winnipeg.

Junior spikers shake adversity

Losing their first two matches of the year was like a slap in the face to the Muskie junior boys’ volleyball team.

Then they went and saved face—and a whole lot more.

Fort High captured its second tournament title of the year with a 2-1 triumph over the Hammarskjold Vikings (Thunder Bay) in the final of the Dryden Eagles Invitational on Saturday.

Lakers back on top

The Fort Frances Lakers are back atop the SIJHL—at least until tomorrow.

The Lakers scored three third-period goals to earn a 3-2 win Tuesday night in Cochenour against the English River Miners.

After a scoreless first period, the host Miners jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second on Alex Maticic’s goal.

Coat drive returning again

The annual winter coat drive organized by the Associates of Ste. Marguerite d’Youville is back.

The group wants clean, used winter coats—in good condition—for men, women, and children to be able to give to the needy.

Mittens, hats, and boot also are welcome.

Businesses may want to make the effort to gather winter coats from among staff, as some have done in the past.

Muskies sweep

Ashley Croswell scored a season-high 14 points to pace the Muskie senior girls’ basketball squad to a 55-21 rout over the Kenora Broncos in NorWOSSA action here Tuesday.

Claire Hyatt added 11 points for Fort High (5-0), which tightened its grip on first place and also won its 25th-straight league game.

Lonely doorway

The doorway bearing the name “Rainy Lake Hotel” was the last piece of the front wall to be demolished yesterday afternoon. By about 4:15 p.m., nothing was left standing.
