Revenge is a dish best served in Emo.
A four-goal first period sparked the Muskie girls' hockey team (5-0-1) to a 5-2 win over the Dryden Eagles last night at the Emo/La Vallee Community Centre.
Last Tuesday, it was the host Eagles who emerged with a 4-3 overtime win, but the Muskies made sure to flip the script in the teams' second meeting of the NorWOSSA regular season.
Muskie captain Annalise ('CC') Hayes opened the scoring 5:54 into the first period.
Jenna Clendenning then tallied unassisted at 9:43 to extend the lead to 2-0.
Lindy Leclerc got the Eagles on the board with a power-play marker at 15:22 to trim the lead to 2-1.
But Siobhan MacKintosh regained the Muskies' two-goal cushion just six seconds later before Kelsie Langtry made it 4-1 with 3:43 left in the opening frame.
The Muskies dictated play in the second period but couldn't manage to beat Eagles' goalie Hannah Zilkalns.
Hannah Ledrew made it 5-1 just over four minutes into the third on a feed from Jessica Steele and Reece McQuaker.
After some penalty trouble put the Muskies down by two, Zoe Lynch made them pay by firing a power-play marker past Kamryn Sandelovich.
But that was as close as the Eagles would get as the Muskies held on for the win.
The Muskies were back in action this afternoon when they visited the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) for a 2:30 p.m. game.
