Ball battle

Pasquel Shortreed was locked in a battle for the ball with a Dryden Eagles' opponent during the Muskie girls' soccer team's 2-2 draw last Wednesday afternoon in Dryden. Montana Plasky scored her team-leading third goal in the Muskies' 1-0 win over the Broncos earlier that day while Kathryn Fischer and Alina Eldridge bulged the twine in the draw with the Eagles.

Fighting for puck

Fort Frances Lakers' defenceman Dane Bateman (#96) looked to strip the puck away from Dryden GM Ice Dogs' forward Evan Walls during his squad's 6-1 loss there Saturday night. The Lakers will look to get back on track tonight versus the host Thief River Falls Norskies before welcoming those same Ice Dogs on Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena here.

Puck rush

Paiten Kinnear looked to rush the puck down the ice toward the Dryden Eagles' zone during the Muskie girls' hockey team's 5-4 shootout loss there last Thursday night. The black-and-gold will be looking to get back into the win column tonight against the host Kenora Broncos before playing in the annual K-Town Classic tourney there this weekend.

Thumbs up
