The good times keep on rolling for both Muskie hockey teams.
Scoring goals hasn't been a problem early in the NorWOSSA regular season for either the girls' or boys' squads—and that trend carried into this week.
The girls were in Sioux Lookout last night and came away with a 9-0 shutout win against the Warriors.
Taylor Croswell and Siobhan MacKintosh each recorded hat tricks to pace the onslaught.
Croswell kicked off the scoring just 1:05 into the game, with Jenna Clendenning and Annalise Hayes drawing the assists.
MacKintosh buried her first of the game at 5:06 unassisted before Croswell made it 3-0 on a power play with 7:24 left in the opening period.
Clendenning and Hayes netted second-period markers to widen the lead to 5-0 heading into the third.
Hayes tallied her second of the night at 4:18 before Croswell completed her hat trick at 11:10.
MacKintosh then netted her second and third goals of the game at 12:10 and 14:27 to cap the scoring.
Kamryn Sandelovich earned the shutout in goal.
The black-and-gold were coming off a 15-1 romp over the Kenora Broncos on Tuesday night at the '52 Canadians Arena.
Hayes led the way offensively with a hat trick.
Croswell, Kelsey Langtry (two), Hayes, Reece McQuaker, and Jillian Calder all tallied in the first period as the Muskies built a 6-0 lead.
Croswell and Hayes scored back-to-back early in the second frame before Ainsley Redsky netted the Broncos' lone tally at 4:27 to make it 8-1.
MacKintosh (two), Clendenning, Avery Cates, and Hayes then tallied to hike the lead to 13-1 heading to the third.
Jessica Steele scored just 56 seconds into the period before Hayes wrapped up the scoring with an unassisted marker.
Sandelovich recorded the win.
With the wins, the Muskies improved to 4-0-0 in NorWOSSA play.
They next will host the International Falls Broncos in an exhibition showdown tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at the '52 Canadians Arena.
The game also will feature the team's annual “Teddy Bear Toss.”
Then the squad will hold its annual tea and bake sale this Saturday (Dec. 2) from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Fort High cafeteria, with admission being $5.
The Muskie boys, meanwhile, extended their NorWOSSA regular-season record to 3-0-0 after beating the Kenora Broncos 5-1 on Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.
Reed Bodnar opened the scoring 8:50 into the first on a feed from Eric Pitkanen.
Bryon Stewart then tallied with 42 seconds left to give the black-and-gold a 2-0 lead heading into the second.
The Broncos finally got on the board just 18 seconds into the middle stanza on a marker by Lincoln Blake.
But Jake Barker extended the Muskies' lead to 3-1 with 53 seconds left in the period.
James Gushulak netted a pair of third-period goals at 7:26 and 18:15 to seal the victory.
Darian Klem earned the win in goal.
The Muskie boys next see action this Tuesday (Dec. 5) when they head to Dryden to face the Eagles.
