Muskie girls stay alive


The Muskie girls’ soccer team beat the Kenora Broncos 3-1 in the NWOSSAA ‘AA’ semi-final this morning at Fort High, advancing to the final at 3 p.m. against the first-place Dryden Eagles.

That winner earns a trip to the all-Ontarios in Peterborough early next month.

The Muskies dominated play early in their semi-final match against Kenora, but it was the Broncos who struck first—opening the scoring midway through the first half.

That swung the momentum in favour of the Broncos, with Kenora putting some heavy pressure on the Muskie defence.

But Katie McTavish netted the tying goal just before the halftime break. That goal re-energized the Muskies, who they came out strong to start the second half.

Once again, it was McTavish who provided the offence as she broke in alone and scored a beautiful goal to put Fort High up 2-1.

Blaire Harnett then sealed the victory with a late insurance marker.

Meanwhile, the Muskie boys’ soccer team also is playing in the NWOSSAA ‘AA’ final today at 5 p.m. against either Kenora or Dryden.

The black-and-gold had earned a bye into the final courtesy of their first-place finish during the regular season.
