Muskie game cancelled

A fuss over a bus gave the Muskie boys’ hockey team an unexpected night off.
The black-and-gold’s game against the Red Lake Rams, slated for last night at the Ice For Kids Arena, was postponed after the Rams experienced what Muskie athletic director Shane Beckett termed as “busing issues.”

A make-up date had not been decided by press time today.
Meanwhile, both Muskie hockey teams are scheduled to be on the ice here tonight against different NorWOSSA opponents.
The girls’ squad (3-0 in NorWOSSA play), coming off a bronze-medal victory at the Portage Collegiate Institute Christmas Classic in Portage la Prairie, Man. over the weekend, will host the Dryden Eagles at the ’52 Canadians Arena at 7 p.m.
The Muskies will be looking for some payback after the Eagles upset them 3-0 in Portage to deprive Fort High of a spot in the final.
Over in the Ice For Kids Arena, the Muskie boys (2-1 in NorWOSSA) will face the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) at 7:15 p.m.
Fort High claimed the ‘B’-side title of the Royal Oak division at the Victoria Inn tournament in Brandon, Man. this past weekend.
