Muskie girls earn league final berth

The Muskie girls’ hockey team turned in one of their strongest performances of the season when it mattered the most last night.
The black-and-gold advanced to the NorWOSSA final after dumping the Dryden Eagles 5-1 in their one-game semi-final showdown at the Ice For Kids Arena here.

With goalie Kate Parsons denying the Eagles’ shooters at one end of the rink, the Muskies drove towards the Eagles’ net on multiple occasions, which led to many of their goals.
Shelby Tymkin led the way with a hat trick and an assist while Amy Penner and Amber Jourdain had opened the scoring in the first period.
Kyla Lindquist spoiled Parsons’ shutout bid late in the third period.
The Muskies now will take on the Kenora Broncos in a two-game, total-goal series to determine this year’s league champ.
The first game goes tomorrow at 7:15 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena, with the second leg set for Sunday in Kenora.
