Cole Tymkin is looking like anything but a high school hockey rookie so far this season.
The only Grade 9 player on the Muskie boys’ hockey team had the shootout winner in a 3-2 victory over the Northlands Parkway Collegiate Night Hawks (Winkler, Man.) in the final of the Dryden Eagles’ home tournament Saturday.
The Muskie girls’ hockey team has been living on cruise control since the start of the season.
Then their coach decided to flip the car into an entirely different gear.
Scott Clendenning figured it was time to shake up his squad, which had 11 mostly easy wins and a tie in its first 12 games.
All good things must come to an end.
But it doesn’t mean they can’t begin again.
The Fort Frances Lakers had their 15-game winning streak snapped last week, but started building another stretch of success with back-to-back wins to strengthen their hold on first place in the SIJHL.
One hiccup cost the Fort Frances Lakers two spots in the national rankings.
The Lakers were bumped from their previous franchise-best position of No. 2 to No. 4 in the latest Canadian Junior ‘A’ Hockey League top 20 rankings.
Fort Frances (18-1-0-2) had its 15-game winning streak snapped last Tuesday (Nov. 19) in a 5-4 shootout loss to the host Thunder Bay North Stars.
Jamie Davis couldn’t bear to look.
He let the sound of his bench tell him the outcome.
A new winning streak is alive in “Lakerland”—one the local squad hopes stretches even farther this time.
Lucas DeBenedet scored twice and Mason Meyer had four assists as the Fort Frances Lakers dumped the Wisconsin Wilderness 6-1 in SIJHL action here Friday night.
The homecoming didn’t quite live up to expectations for Kathie Jackson.
The Fort Frances resident saw her Northern Ontario rink’s hopes of a national title go up in flames yesterday as they lost both games at The Dominion Club Curling Championships in Thunder Bay to finish in sixth place in the Grey Pool with a 1-5 record.
If Claire Sandelovich had her way, the Muskie girls’ hockey team would be shorthanded all the time.
The Fort High forward netted four goals and added an assist to pace the Muskies to a 10-0 thrashing of the Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA-opener for both teams last night at the Ice For Kids Arena.
Kathie Jackson and her rinkmates have to rely on the kindness of others if they are going to extend their stay in Thunder Bay.
The Fort Frances skip and her Northern Ontario team of third Teresa McFayden, second Lisa Penner, and lead Kris Sinclair lost their second-straight game with a 6-3 defeat to the Northwest Territories yesterday at The Dominion Club Curling Championships.
The captain steered the ship through pleasant waters, with no threat of being pushed off course.
That would be Muskie captain Shelby Tymkin, who notched a pair of goals in leading the black-and-gold to a 7-0 shutout of the host Detroit Lakes Lakers in an exhibition game Tuesday night.
