Muskie boys clinch top spot

It was an early Valentine’s Day present for the Muskie boys’ hockey team, courtesy of themselves.
The black-and-gold wrapped up first place in the NorWOSSA standings with a 5-3 victory over the host Dryden Eagles last night.

Fort High led 3-2 after the first and 4-3 after the second before tacking on an insurance marker in the third to conclude the regular season at 15-1.
“I thought Dryden played well and we played OK, although we had a few mistakes that cost us,” noted Muskie head coach Jamie Davis.
As well, the squad only iced 13 skaters last night due to a ’flu bug that’s made its way through the roster recently.
Braden Webb netted a pair of goals for the Muskies while Jarred Taylor, Graeme Kitt, and Jack Hamilton added singles.
Jonah Johnson earned the win in goal.
Meanwhile, with the Kenora Broncos edging the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints 2-1 last night, that ensured Fort High and Dryden will hook up again next week in the best-of-three semi-finals.
Game 1 will take place next Thursday (Feb. 20) at 7:15 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena at 7:15 p.m., with Game 2 set for Dryden next Saturday (Feb. 22).
Game 3, if necessary, will be back at the IFK Arena on Monday, Feb. 24 at 7:15 p.m.
