It's been a great start to the season for the Muskie boys' hockey team.
After dispatching the host Kenora Broncos by a 13-0 count last Tuesday, the black-and-gold followed that up by going 4-0 and snaring the title at the annual Dryden Eagles' tournament held Friday and Saturday.
The Muskies opened play on Friday morning with a 6-1 win over the Red Lake Rams.
Nolan Mann scored twice while Connor Nelson, Ashton Cousineau, Jacob Albright, and Brady Bodnarchuk also lit the lamp in that one.
Jace Jackson then tallied twice to pace the Muskies to a 4-1 win over the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) that evening.
Cousineau and Bodnarchuk provided the other goals for the Muskies.
Then on Saturday morning, Fort High nailed down a 4-2 victory over the Morris Mavericks (Manitoba).
Kaden Kocuiba bulged the twine twice in that one while Albright and Mikel Ward also tallied.
That win put the Muskies in the championship game against St. Thomas Aquinas that evening, where they again prevailed by a 4-2 count.
Nelson, Cousineau, Jackson, and Mann supplied the goals to help the Muskies claim the title.
Both the Muskie boys' and girls' squads will resume NorWOSSA action tomorrow night when they host the Dryden Eagles in their home-openers.
The girls' game is slated for 7 p.m. at the '52 Canadians Arena while the boys' will go at 7:15 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena.
The girls' squad then will head to International Falls on Saturday (Nov. 23) to play the Broncos in the opener of their annual two-game “Border Battle” exhibition series at 3 p.m. at Bronco Arena.
