Three Muskie teams cap season with wins

The Muskie court teams did a pretty good job of defending home court Tuesday afternoon as they closed out their NorWOSSA regular-season action against the Kenora Broncos.

The junior girls' basketball squad cruised to a 29-19 win over the Broncos (3-4) to finish the season in first place with a 7-1 record and earn a bye to the NorWOSSA final here this coming Tuesday (Nov. 6).

Lakers win in shootout

The Fort Frances Lakers blew a three-goal lead before hanging on to edge the Thief River Falls Norskies 4-3 in a shootout last night at the Ralph Engelstad Arena.

The victory avenged a 4-1 loss to the Norskies there Saturday night as the fourth-place Lakers improved their SIJHL record to 6-7-0-0 (12 points).

Thief River Falls (4-6-2-1) sits a point back in fifth place.
