Muskies romp over Broncos

The Muskie boys’ hockey team opened their NorWOSSA season with a bang here last night, thumping the Kenora Broncos 10-2 at the Ice for Kids Arena.

Kevin Webb, assisted by Ross Anderson, put the black-and-gold in front just 16 seconds into the game. Then Tom Rose, from Adam McTavish and Webb, made it 2-0 less than a minute later.

Good turnout for senior men’s bonspiel

The annual Sun Life 60+ senior men’s bonspiel wrapped up here last Wednesday afternoon with Thunder Bay rinks dominating the 32-team field.

But then again, it was all just for fun.

“[I like] everything about curling,” enthused Jerry Whittaker of the Earl Connors quartet from Thunder Bay, which won the ‘A’ event with a narrow 9-8 victory over McKinnon of Fort Frances.

Senior, junior spikers settle for silver

Both matches went down to the wire. And unfortunately for the Muskies, both ended with the black-and-gold having to settle for NorWOSSA silver medals last Thursday in Kenora.

The seniors opened the best-of-five match against the host Broncos with a 25-22 win. Then after losing the second game 25-21, the black-and-gold stormed back to take the third one 25-19.
