Muskie curlers top exhibition tourney


Talk about a picture-perfect two days for Muskie curlers.

The boys', girls', and mixed rinks all competed in an exhibition tournament in Red Lake on Sunday and Monday, and came away victorious in every single match.

The girls earned three-straight victories on Sunday, dumping Red Lake 11-2 before pounding Atikokan 12-1 and then downing Sioux Lookout 7-3.

Then Monday's action saw the girls sweep to a 7-4 win over the Kenora Broncos to set up a first-place showdown against the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora).

The rink won that match 10-1 to finish with an unblemished 5-0 record.

The boys opened play with a pair of victories Sunday, beating Sioux Lookout 8-2 and then shading Atikokan 6-5.

Then they cruised to a 7-3 win over Red Lake on Monday to set up a 1-versus-2 playoff against Sioux Lookout, which Fort High easily took by a 10-1 margin.

The mixed team, meanwhile, opened with a 10-3 victory against St. Thomas Aquinas and then 9-3 versus the Kenora Broncos.

Then on Monday, they cruised to a 12-2 win over Sioux Lookout before dumping Red Lake 10-1 to claim top spot.

In related news, the Fort Frances Curling Club is hosting the U21 men's and women's provincial playdowns Dec. 27-30.

Five teams will compete in the men's division, including two from Fort Frances skipped by Chris Silver and Jason Bazylewski.
