Momentum shift costs senior spikers

The Muskie senior girls’ volleyball team had the Kenora Broncos on the ropes in the NorWOSSA final there last Friday but they couldn’t deliver the knockout blow.

After winning the first two games of the best-of-five match 15-8 and 15-13, passing well, setting near perfection, and hitting the ball with authority, the proverbial wheels fell off—in a big way.

Muskies, Eagles play ‘old-fashioned’ NorWOSSA hockey

In a game with no playoff implications, the Muskies and Dryden Eagles played a playoff-style hockey game here last Friday to wrap up the NorWOSSA regular season.

The black-and-gold opened the eight-team showdown Friday with a lopsided 65-20 loss to Maples Collegiate. Leading 10-9 after the first quarter, the Marauders blew the game wide open by going on a decisive 21-0 run in the second stanza.
