Boys’ season finishes on losing note

Even though the Muskie boys’ soccer season came to an abrupt end with a pair of losses at the NWOSSAA playoffs in Marathon on Saturday, the coaches still came away with the feeling of satisfaction.

Late-game collapse costs Muskie girls NWOSSAA title

Heading into their game against the St. Ignatius Falcons here Saturday, the Muskie girls’ soccer team knew going in that they could lose by two goals and still win the NWOSSAA crown.

But the road to the all-Ontarios took a detour when the Muskies surrendered two goals in the final eight minutes to lose 4-1, giving the Thunder Bay squad the title and a trip to Pembroke this week.
