Muskies swept by Vikings

A berth to the all-Ontarios just wasn’t to be for the Muskie senior girls’ basketball team.

The black-and-gold were swept by the Hammarskjold Vikings at the best-of-three NWOSSAA championship held Friday and Saturday in Thunder Bay.

It was dominant weekend for the hosts as they routed the Muskies 58-21 in the opener Friday.

Lakers fall to Miners

It’s going to be quite the test if the Fort Frances Lakers are to stay at or above the .500 mark over the next while.

The Lakers found that out first-hand Friday night as the Red Lake Miners used a three-goal third period to earn a 5-1 win in SIJHL action at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Senior spikers fall short of gold

It appeared as though the Muskie senior boys' volleyball team was close to putting a disappointing regular season behind them early in the NorWOSSA final here last Tuesday.

But after claiming the first two sets by scores of 25-19 and 25-15 against the top-ranked Kenora Broncos, things started to fall apart for the third-seeded Muskies in their upset hopes.

Owls' junior hoopsters claim gold

They were the best team in the regular season and rightfully earned the bye to the NorWOSSA 'A' junior girls' basketball final.

And as it turns out, they were the best team between them and the host St. Thomas Aquinas Saints last week in Kenora.

The Rainy River Owls capped an undefeated season with NorWOSSA gold as they downed the Saints 37-25 score on Thursday.

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.
