Golden day for three Muskie teams

Talk about a banner day for the Muskie court sports teams.

The junior and senior girls' basketball teams, as well as the junior boys' volleyball squad, all came away with NorWOSSA gold on Tuesday at Fort High.

The top-ranked junior hoopsters rolled to a 39-25 win over the second-seeded Kenora Broncos to claim their second-straight league title.

Owls' hoops squads eager to start playoffs

The Rainy River Owls' junior and senior girls' basketball teams have battled hard and shown good resilience so far this season.

That was exemplified even further in their wins over the visiting Red Lake Rams in the NorWOSSA 'A' regular-season finale last Wednesday afternoon.

The juniors romped to a 46-12 win over the Rams to finish with an unblemished 7-0 record.

Spiker squads set for playoffs

It's been a tale of two different seasons for the Muskie junior and senior boys' volleyball teams, but the latter was hoping that anything could happen in the playoffs.

Both squads hosted NorWOSSA semi-final matches yesterday, with the juniors downing the Kenora Broncos 3-1 while the seniors earned a 3-0 sweep over the Dryden Eagles.

Muskie girls put on 'Showcase'

The first game action of the season can be unnerving for any team—and the Muskie girls' hockey squad isn't exempt from those feelings.

But any bouts of nervousness quickly faded away over the weekend as the black-and-gold compiled a 2-1 record at the annual Scott Clendenning Memorial Showcase at the Memorial Sports Centre.

It was a nice way for the Muskies to kick things off.

Lakers looking to up their tempo

Things appeared to be going well for the Fort Frances Lakers heading into Saturday night's showdown against the Thief River Falls Norskies at the Ice For Kids Arena.

The Lakers had snapped a three-game losing streak last Wednesday with a 4-3 shootout win over the host Norskies, then won their second-straight Friday night after blanking the visiting Minnesota Iron Rangers 4-0.
